History of Madison Co IN

[R49.2, I think]

"Run Over by a Train"

On the 20th of September, 1891, John Rigsby, an employee at
the Flint Bottle Works in Hazelwood, while passing a Big Four
train that was standing across the street, met with an
accident that caused him the loss of both of his limbs. The
train was moving slowly at the time and in making the passage
across, Rigsby caught his foot and fell beneath the cards. Two
wheels passed over his left leg and right foot before he could
be pulled from under the train by a man who was standing close
by, which prevented him from being otherwise injured. Quite a
number of people assembled and physicians were at once called.
Rigsby was rendered a cripple for the balance of his days.

[There were two John Rigsbys in Madison Co IN on the 1880
census, R49.2 and his son. The son moves to Hamilton Co IN
before 1900, so I think it was the father in the accident.]
