At Home Exhibit - David Reilly


At Home Exhibits submitted by the community:

David Reilly - 

The gentleman on the right is my grandfather James D. Reilly. He is standing in the driveway of 27 Cedar St. where he moved his family about 1915 because he had a job as a foreman on the railroad. Until  the 1950s the 4 tracks of the New York Central R. R. ran right next to 27 Cedar. In the 1920s James suffered a serious leg injury from a track falling on him. He died in 1931 at the age of 61 from sepsis because he would not get proper medical attention for his ailing leg.

The card explains about my grandfather ‘s railroad watch. My dad gave it to me many years ago.

This is one of his railroad union membership cards from 1920.Notice the dues of $3.50 per year.

This is a railroad pass that my father had in the 1920s because his dad worked for the railroad. He used it to go back and forth to Rochester to visit his aunts.
