Picture of Lon Thomas

Lonnie Benjamin Thomas

I received a phone call asking about Lonni Benjamin Thomas. He was a porter on the 1911 train and newspaper articles mentioned him as being injured. The call was from his grand daughter Dee Thomas from Las Angeles CA. She told me how he had been burned badly and his life greatly affected. He died about 6 years after the wreck. This picture was taken around 1909. Thank you Dee.
