This postscript provides an overview of what happened to some of the important figures in the Angola Horror after the tragedy. It begins with John Davison Rockefeller, who went on to become one of the richest men in the world and then turns to Charles Lobdell, the newspaper editor, who never made it to his Christmas wedding but whose memory lived on in the imaginations of those who knew him. It then looks at Henrietta Bennett and Dr. Romaine J. Curtiss, who fell in love with each other and got married (sadly, their marriage did not last long); Christiana Gates Lang, who recovered from her injuries and later remarried; Josiah Southwick and his wife, Huldah, who moved to Montana in 1892; and Benjamin Franklin Sherman, who stepped down from the post of conductor. The chapter also looks at what happened to the Buffalo and Erie Railroad, which became part of the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railway a little over two years after the wreck.
