AA potters field - one hundred thirteen blacks bur

Is there any interest out there about a potters field cemetary in which a minimum of one hundred thirteen African American coal miners and/or members of their familys were buried in unmarked graves?

This occurred in Christian County, Illinois, during the Pana Coal Mine War of 1898 thru 1899.

Now, the same sites are being used as a religious cemetary.
