Dec. 31, 1861; m. Nov. 21, 1882, Eunice KELLEY. Norman K. WHITNEY, assistant yardmaster in the Chicago & Northwestern rail- road company's yard at California avenue and Kinzie street, was instantly killed. He was standing on one of the many tracks in the yard superintending the making up of a freight train. While he was busy giving orders, engine No. 742 of the same road came rushing down the tracks at about twelve miles an hour. Mr. WHITNEY did not realize his danger until the engine was close upon him, and then attempted to jump aside. Before he could do so the engine struck him in the side, knocking him a distance of nearly twenty feet. When picked up the injured man was still breathing, but expired within a few minutes. Mr. WHITNEY was only 32 years of age and lived at No. 42 Washtenaw avenue. He was a married man and well liked among the railroad employes with whom he worked. The engineer of the engine which ran down Mr. WHITNEY was not arrested, as no blame was attached to him. At the time of the accident he was ringing his bell and thought nothing of seeing the yardmaster on the track, as he thought he was aware of the close proximity of the engine. When too late to realize his mistake, he attempted to reverse his engine, but without avail. Killed by the cars Dec., 1892; res 42 Washtenaw Ave., Chicago, Ill. 8667.
