Thread Name: who comes from coal miners?
Subject: RE: who comes from coal miners?
One of my g-g-g-grandfathers was a miner in PA during the "troubles" involving the "Molly Maguires." He & a brother and their families left there the year several "Mollies" were hung (1872?) and went to Iowa. Don't know if he was involved in the "Mollies" or not.
