Mining Accident 1909/1910
July 19, 2015 02:26PM

Does anyone have any information about a mining accident which would have claimed at least one life in 1909 or early 1910? Do you happen to know what mine(s) were active during that timeframe around Coalfield during those years? And if so, would you happen to know if there are any records online which would help us locate the details of a victim's death in 1909 or early 1910? The man in the photo below is William B.(M.) Ross who married Julie E. Langley in Wartburg in 1900 and who apparently died in an accident (we assume mining) prior to the 1910 census but after the birth of their last son in August 1908.

Thanks so much for your help!
