According to the “Historical Record Index View” at the Colorado State Archives website, a man named Christopher Troutfetter sued the Rock Island & Pacific Railway in 1898. I have my suspicion about who this Christopher Troutfetter is.
The Colorado State Archives will send copies of records mentioned in their indexes using their online request system. I received a response with a price quote for a copy of the case file. Ten days are to be allowed for copies to be received.
Stay tuned–we’ll have an update when the materials have been received.
