Uncle Jim chose to leave the farm to better care for his family and got a job working for Brinks Express Company. When the employees at Brinkes went out on strike, Uncle Jim took a temporary job on the railroad like so many of his family. He worked in the mornings, checking the couplings between the cars to make sure they were all properly hooked up when they had added cars at the station. He would go in between the cars, check the couplings, then step out. When he was done, he would signal to the flagman who would signal to the engineer. Then the engineer would "hump" the cars, that is, back them up as one last check that they were all connected properly. An unconnected car would just come off in this process and better it happen that way than on the line. One morning, the flagman was drunk. Uncle Jim was still in between the cars when the flagman signaled to the engineer to hump the cars. Uncle Jim was crushed between the cars and then dragged down the line for almost a mile before the engineer got the information and could stop the train. He did not survive the initial 'humping' due to head injuries.He left a wife and five small children.
