Also in the car was Harry Buckley, Eva Buckley (Harry's wife and Walter's sister) and Emma Farnlacher (mother of Eva and Walter). Harry Buckley was at the wheel. According to newspaper articles Harry tried to race the train to a crossing and lost. Harry was also killed in the wreck. Emma and Eva were seriously injured. That was December 15, 1918. Eva Farnlacher died in February 1920 of pneumonia. So within a short space of less than 18 months all three of Emma's children died. Only Henry had any offspring. That was Harry R. Farnlacher who really did not know his father since Harry was not quite two years old when Henry passed away. -- from Walter Farnlacher, 8-30-1998.
