Curtis Jones:

O.k., yeah my cousin Emmett and Wheeler and my grandfather Mose Wright was scheduled to catch a train at Illinois Central, that's located at Roosevelt Road and Michigan Avenue. Uh, the night they ‘posed to depart Emmett was late and he missed the train, the train had took of without him. See, so his mother brought him down there, found out the train had took off, she hopped back in the car, got on the outer drive, sped all the way to 63rd and Kembrall, and they had a little stop there for about five minutes. And they ran up the ramp up there and the train was just about, about movin'. And they got him on there, and threw his bags, and that's how he made it. If he had been another minute he wouldn't have caught it, that's how close it was, you know.
