I use to live in Pevely, MO. back in the 60's when I was a little girl. There was a young girl killed by a train while she was walking on the train tracks. I think it was by a train tressle. This is not the same girl that was killed with her mother who use to be a Girl Scout Leader. I want to say it was in the late 60's.
I am having a hard time finding out this information. If anyone knows or remembers who she is I would appreciate it very much. My memory is not what it use to be and she came up in a conversation and no one can remember who she was. I have searched the internet and still coming up with nothing. If anyone has a website or the actual information it would be great. Thanks

I remember when I was very young, five or six, when my older sister would walk the train tracks in festus. this was late seventies. My sister, a teenager back then talked of a girl who died on the train tracks or by the train tressle. She knew of the story and by that time it became a legend or something like a ghost story. she always was careful walking the tracks. she took me for a walk down the track when I was very young, headed down to joaquim creek west city park area and we saw a dead dog that had got run over by the train. maybe the article story could be located in the st. louis post dispatch via microfish at the library (??) good luck with your research. I am now in my late thirties and do remember !!! my sister and I don't talk anymore or else I'd forward this

Thank You for the response. I will try what you said.
I believe this girl lived near Horine. If you have anymore leads please let me know. The train tressle was where alot of kids went swimming and the train was real close to a bend before the tressle. It made it hard to hear if one was coming. Thanks
