From: "Gerry Cullen" firstname.lastname@example.org
I am hoping you may be able to help me or at least direct me to an appropriate contact for relevant information as I am not having much luck with my quest for information so far.
My aunt, Annie Cullen, immigrated to Boston in 1913 but died a few week later (full story in attached files):
Girl Gives Up Her Life for Baby. The Boston Post. June 5, 1913.
Doomed Girl Saves Child. The Boston Daily Globe. June 5, 1913.
I was wondering if you might be able to help me to get:
Any subsequent enquiry reports that were carried out or any relevant info that was filed as a result of the accident.
I would presume, even in those days, the incident would have to be recorded, and I would be very grateful if you could locate any old files that related to the incident.
I am trying to piece together our family history and was sent the attached newspaper articles which give the exact details of the time and area where the accident took place.
While the wording is word for word from the two newspaper microfilms, I have just set it up to look better.
I WAS ALSO HOPING TO FIND A PHOTO OF NORTH SOMERVILLE RAILWAY STATION TAKEN IN OR AROUND 1913 OR A PHOTO OF THE TYPE OF TRAIN THAT STRUCK HER FOR MY RECORDS.
Her death certificate lists the place of death as Somerville, Ma. No. Somerville Sta. B&M RR (what is this?)
I would be very grateful if you could please help me as I have emailed dozens of random email addresses found on the internet and nobody so far has had the courtesy to reply to my query.
I am in Australia which makes it very hard for me not knowing the correct departments to contact.
