Picture   Tombstone of Charles Anthony Jacobson in Evergreen Cemetery, Roanoke
Finally come three photos of a tombstone I found in Evergreen Cemetery, Roanoke, when exploring as a kid. Charles Anthony Jacobson was an N&W Radford Division Engineman killed at Melborn, Va, in 1918. He was the youngest promoted man on the Radford Division (something under age 30, as I recall,) and was running Extra 1461 West on the Bristol Line. The 1461 was a big (for that time) Class Z, 2-6-6-2. At Radford, the last open Telegraph Office, his marvelous Conductor overlooked checking the train register and failed to note that No. 26, the eastbound Memphis special, was overdue and running 5 hours and 55 minutes late. Jacobson's train left Radford and met No. 26 head on four miles west of Radford, at Melborn, Va. No. 26 was doubleheaded by two big Mountains, the 102 and the 105. The engines locked together and rolled down the bank, killing four of the engine crewmen. My grandfather obviously knew and worked with all the men involved, which has been my point of contact with the wreck. I knew one man who had been at the wreck site during cleanup, Tom Kegley, a 1906-hire Engineman, and he told me he saw bloody tracks in the snow, left by someone who had escaped death. Anyway, Jacobson's wife, Vanda, had this tombstone erected at his grave.
