When Tiberghien was 3 and his brother was 7 their father was killed in a railroad accident in Colorado. The s e v e n children who live in Trinidad, Colo., were parceled out among relatives in scattered parts of the country. Some of them were adopted and their name changed. ; Tiberheien's first contact with his family was in 1920 after he was in an accident in the Army in California. A sister who read about it visited him in a hospi tal. He lost touch with the sis ter after that.
