Circa 1890 - First Wreck on the Mackinac Greenville (actually Mackinaw)
Reverse of the picture notes... "Katzenburgers. 114 W. Main St., Greenville Ohio". Photographer A.M. Johnson of Greenville Ohio.
Gordon Davids: The "Mackinaw" was the Cincinnati, Jackson and Mackinaw, which later morphed into the Cincinnati Northern and came under the reign of a trainmaster at Van Wert named William Robert Foster, and at a later time a Track Supervisor at Bryan named Gordon Alan Davids (for a VERY short period.)
Lawrence Baggerly Collection.

Only report of a railroad incident at Greenville, OH was on November 8, 1892, when the morning northbound express rear ended a gravel train. The photo shows a lot of leaves on that tree for the month of November.
