Tombstone Tuesday - Harry A. PALMER

Harry A. Palmer

I missed Tombstone Tuesday last week, it was a busy week.  Here is one of the last Palmer tombstones that I have from the Berwick cemetery.  Harry A. Palmer is Robert’s 1st cousin 3x removed.  He is the son of Handley Palmer and Martha Sanford.  Harry died at a young age.  When I did a web search for Harry in Family Tree Maker, it came up with an interesting result from “The Register, Berwick, Kings Do., Nova Scotia  1914”  
“Palmer, Harry A., 22 years, raised by Handley Palmer, Mosherville, Hants Co., formerly of Rockland, NS, died Westfield, NB 4 Feb 1914. [11Feb 1914 see Killed on the Track].”
This looks like it could use some further investigation.  Is Harry the son of Handley Palmer? What happened on the track?
