Coal Mining Activities
of James 'William' Minerd

Above, James "William" Minerd stands in front, at right, in a photograph depicting seven laborers at a hillside coal-digging operation. As Minerd resided in both Smithfield, Fayette County, PA and later Warren, Trumbull County, OH, the exact location of this image is unknown.

Above, Minerd, second from right, sits astride a horse that presumably was one of a team that labored in the coal mines of Western Pennsylvania. The miners are wearing lamp-hats. The exact location of this image is unknown.
