IHB Railroad
« on: November 13, 2005, 12:46:09 PM »
My grandfather retired from the IHB railroad. How would I find out any information on his career and if their are any photos of him in the workplace. His name was Harold Erwin Stout.

You don't say WHEN he worked for the IHB. In any event, you can check with the Railroad Retirement Board at: http://www.rrb.gov/geneal.html

Searches cost $$ in advance.

The Railroad Retirement Board, like the Social Security Administration, was not established until the mid-1930's, and it began maintaining its own records of all covered rail service in 1937. Therefore, the Board's service records are limited to individuals who worked in the rail industry after 1936. If a person was not actually working for a railroad after 1936, he or she would not be listed in these records.

Good Luck.

Thank you Mr. Hensley, I am not concerned about the $$. My grandparents were the light of my life and people that I truly respected. Never have I known anyone of their caliber. I will let you know what I find. Thanks again.

While I am thinking about it, grandpa Harold E was living in Hammond, IN. In the 1930 census he is listed with his mother Maud as head of household. His brothers Ross, Lowell W, Wayne, and his sister Mabel were also listed. Harold and Ross occupations were freight truckers and Lowell W was a boilermaker. All three worked for the RR. I do not know the retirement date.
