St. Louis Globe-Democrat (September 1870
Late Saturday evening, Mr. John Minesinger, civil engineer, in charge of the construction of the trestle work between the island and main shore for the Belleville and Southern Illinois, in walking over the work, stepped on the end of a loose plank; the plank tipped up and he fell a distance of twenty-seven feet. The unfortunate man was picked up by other employees of the road and carried to his boarding house. The best medical aid possible to obtain here as well as over the river, was called in and every effort was made by Mr. Broughton, Superintendent of the road, to relieve the sufferer, but to no purpose. He lingered till Sunday, when he expired. The deceased leaves a widow and family, all the children grown up, residing near New Castle, Indiana, as well as a host of friends to mourn over his sudden death. The deceased was a member of the Masonic fraternity, and the body will be escorted to the cars today by a delegation of that order to send it home for burial."
