Waiting for Pullman Car Company Records

Records have been ordered and I am anxiously awaiting their arrival. Three of my wife's ancestors worked for the Pullman Car Company in Chicago, Illinois:
  • Louis DeMar, born 1862
  • Thomas Frame, born 1838
  • William Frame, born 1888
I've never used employment records from the Pullman Company and am anxious to see what they contain. We'll have image samples, record summaries, and interpretations in an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues.

Regular readers know that in this family the records could be pivotal. William Frame disappears ca. 1918 and there could be information in these records that documents his existence or residence location after that date.

Louis DeMar was born in New York, moved to Chicago by 1909 and (I think) returned to Chicago by 1930. We're fine tuning some details on him too and will update as time and information allows.

Subscribe to Casefile Clues and get in on the fun.
