Joseph Starrett Brown
Birth: Aug. 30, 1842
Muskingum County
Ohio, USA
Death: Jan. 4, 1902
Warren County
Illinois, USA

The following newspaper story was carried verbatim by many newspapers across the country:

"Monmouth, Ills. Jan. 4 - Four section men were instantly killed by a Burlington passanger train this morning while going to work on a hand car. The train was concealed by steam from a freight train on a siding.

The dead are:
James McGrath, foreman
Joseph Brown
Samuel Mettler
Mike Anderson"

Until relatively recent years, there were 3 sets of tracks which began west of Monmouth and continued into town. The center tracks, used for switching purposes, have now been removed. These center tracks were probably those cited as the siding in the article.
