Update: Joplin - Neosho Train Crash

I have blogged on this inccident twice before. The orginal post, in May 2010, was fairly basic. But the second post, in February 2011, I was able to track down most of the death certificates of the victims.  After writting the second post I made a trip back to the Neosho I.O.O.F. Cemetery to see if I could locate the headstones of the ones who are buried there.  Sadly the snow had not melted off enought to do much searching.  However, I was able to find the Harmon Family Plot that sits directly behind the Memorial Monument. I do plan to go back soon and see if I can find any others.

This is the Harmon Family Plot marker
