Train engine accident

From: "Barbara Sinkinson"

My Great Grandfather was killed in a train engine accident on 4th February 1987 while working near Hilsboro, Springfield MO. His name was Albert McLean. I have the original Western Union Telegraph in it's original envelope which was delivered to my Great Grandmother after the accident. Where would I find more info on this accident or newspaper clippings?

Sorry to hear about your loss.

You might want to also check the local newspapers in Missouri around the date of the accident for any related reports, and also with the organization that sent the telegram.
