A Memorial to the Coal Miners that Worked the
Federal Mines (Hickman Mine)


Following is a partial list of the miners, mine employees and company store employees that worked the Federal Mines (Hickman Mine), Burdine, Allegheny Co., PA.  The Hickman Mine was renamed Federal No. 2 Mine by Pittsburg Coal Company.  The coal miners names have been researched and complied from various sources by Raymond A. Washlaski, Historian: newspaper obits, newspaper articles, Pennsylvania Bureau of Mines Reports, township histories, and names of coal miners submitted by various people, etc..
The Nationalities listed for various miners, are taken directly from "Report of the Department of Mines of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg, PA" as reported for the various years.  Those listed as American, could be either native born or naturalized citizens.
