CPRR 1883 letter
I have found an old letter written on Central Pacific Railroad letterhead, dated June 20, 1883. The letter was in my great grandfathers papers.
The letterhead reads:
Central Pacific Railroad
Freight and Ticket Office
Before the date is written: Wadsworth, Nev
It is signed by 4 people. The names are tough to read, but looks like:
D. H. Seaver ?
D. C. Rumb ?
A. J. Willis
James Tomfalton ?
The letter references a W. S. Raitt.
I am trying to determine why my grandfather had the letter. If someone was a relative? Do you know if there is anyway to find names of employees from that time frame (1883). ...
