> Dear Sir:
>     I’m researching the family tree of a friend whose relatives were employed on the railroad for generations.   All lived in Bluefield, Mercer Co, WV.   J. W. Forlines was killed in an 1895 train wreck in Ennis, McDowell Co, WV.  According to a newspaper mention, there is a monument in a Roanoke cemetery in his honor.  I am searching for a photo of it & any related information.  I have his Ancestry documentation.  I will attempt to send a copy of the newspaper data. May have to send in a separate-mail.  Roanoke Marble Works installed the monument in 1896.  Thank you.  Karen Boothe. Sent from my iPhone
