A brother of my great-great grandfather Hans Friedrich Lewerenz immigrated to the USA in 1882.
He worked there in Illinois as railroad construction worker.
On 27 May 1891 he had an deadly accident; he was run over by a train of the "Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad".
This was recorded in the German Illinois-Staatszeitung (state newspaper) on 28 May 1891
Sorry, two weeks and nearly the same answer, but Hans Friedrich Lewerenz matches both questions. He had a hard work and worked for a travel-related industry.
