Thanks for your diligence in forwarding information you uncover on black miners. I should be hearing in the next 6 or so weeks if I am selected for a Scholar in Residence research grant from the PA Historical Museum Commission; my proposal was for conducting research and producing a written history of the AA miners in SW PA. All the information you and others are passing on about the early miners in that region will be very helpful in the process of identifying coal "patches" and the origins of the mining workforce.
