New Market Train Wreck : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

I am a radio producer and I'm putting together a feature story commemorating the 100th anniversary of the New Market Train Wreck. I'm looking for descendants of someone who was affiliated with the wreck in some way (a casualty, a witness, etc.). I'm particularly interested in the story of William Benton Caldwell, the conductor of the #15 train who was blamed for the wreck. If you have some family history to pass on and you don't mind being interviewed for this story, it would be very helpful to me. My email address is Thanks very much.
