May 27, 1927 - "August Falk"
Judge Chas. Holmans, Justice of the Peace, of Rosenberg, was called in Thompsons Monday morning to hold an inquest over the mangeled body of a man that had been found on the railroad two miles below that place It is thought that he was killed by the second section of the Galveston Excursion. Portions of his body were found scattered down the tract for a distance of a mile.
The man was identified by letters and addresses in his coat, one bearing the name of Mrs. Herman Albright, Rosenberg, Texas, one J. W. Bailey and another address being that of Mrs. Walter Williams of Topeka, Kansas. After investigation he was found to be August Falk, age 29 years, and is a brother of Charlie Falk, residing near Beasley. He also has a sister in Galveston and one in Topeka, Kansas. It seems that he had no home and often made his home among relatives, traveling from one place to another.
His body was so badly mangled, that after gaining the consent of his brother, his body was placed in a coffin and buried immediately.
August 5, 1927 - "August Falk"
A. W. Clark, local undertaker, went to Thompsons Tuesday to remove the body of Aug. Falk, from the railroad right-of-way, where it had been buried on May 24, 1937 (should read 1927). Mr. Falk was killed by an excursion returning from Galveston and a brothr was finally located in the Beasley community, who consented to the burial taking place there. Other relatives objected to the body being left there and communicated with the railroad company with the result that the company had the body removed and interred in the W.O.W. Cemetery in Rosenberg, Tuesday afternoon. * * *
