Family of Robinson Crusoe MEALS (103) & Katherine LANSFORD
Oscar, like a lot of men who lived in Cleburne, worked for the Santa Fe Railroad for nearly 50 years; first as a section labor (track repairman), then water service, switchman and last as a clerk in an office. His son, Raymond, worked with his father at the railroad during World War II. However, he finally went to work for the Santa Fe in April 1937 and retired in 1976.
