In Response To: African American coal miners ()
You may already have this information, but I did not see this on your site. I was doing research in North Carolina and found the following concerning Africian American coal miners during the time period you ask for. The following is submitted:
COAL GLEN MINING DISASTER IN FARMVILLE, CHATHAM COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA:
1925 Coal Glen Mine African American mining deaths:
Arhtur Poe, age unknown
There is more information on these men on the site.
Some of these surnames are some of my family names and are from some of the same counties I am searching. This is a very unique story and it list many other things was well pertaining to mines nearby. It also shows that family members went to various places to obtain work and support families. Some of these men who died that day were from different counties in the state.
