Natural and Man Made Disasters
 For example:
Did you know that when the dam broke and wiped out Austin, Pa., 
many of the dead were taken by train to Wellsville, NY. to be buried? 
Many thought that Austin was done for. 

The town survived, but anyone looking for ancestors would 
have to know that they were buried elswhere.
