Hi, I'm hoping to find someone that has access to old newspapers from about August of 1924. My great-grandfather Joseph Jakubiec and his daughter, Valeria, were killed on the same day in two different accidents, both involving a trolley car in the Lincoln Park area.
The story that my grandmother and her sister both remember is that Joseph was delivering pickles; he was hit and killed by a trolley car. As my great grandmother was out making funeral arrangements, the baby Valeria, wandered out into the street and was hit by the trolley car on its return trip about 3 hours later.
We've narrowed the date down to about August of 1924, but have no records. I'm seeking a newspaper article, if one exists; or any other information regarding the accident.
Any assistance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you - Theresa
