From Leo Haney: "Arvel Haney worked for Kansas City Power & Light Company as a "Switching engine" engineer, shuttling coal to the furnace. When he died he was working as a member of the road gang for the Wabash Railroad. He jumped a freight so he could go get his paycheck, he was supposed to be trying to roll a cigarette when he turned his back to the wind and lost his footing and fell from the box car. He died on impact with the ground."
From Juanita Haney Kemnow: "Another account of his death was that he worked for the railroad as a brakeman & also had the job of checking the cars for hobos that would catch the trains as they slowed down or were leaving the yards. During his checking of the cars he either lost his balance and fell or was thrown from the train by a train jumper. His death was listed as an accidental resulting from injuries sustained in a fall from a moving train. No further investigation was done."
