Wreck on Georgia Southern and Florida Railway

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

I'm am trying to find some information on a train wreck that occurred in 1903 sometime in the month of October. It possibly happened on the Georgia Southern and Florida Railway line just south of Ashburn, Georgia.

I am not really sure of the railway line it happened on though. I am helping the Tifton-Tift County Library do this research for someone out of state and this was the information passed to us.

The engineer was to believed to have been James Frank Oakes and died 2 days after the wreck. His family is trying to find this information and anything you could help me with would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your help.
