[This listing of coal mines and coal companies has been researched and complied from various sources by Raymond A. Washlaski, Historian: newspaper articles, Pennsylvania Bureau of Mines Reports, county histories, township histories, Pennsylvania Geological Survey reports, topographical maps, personnal accounts of coal miners, etc., etc.]
Very few coal company employee records exist today.  Most Coal Company employee records have been lost or destroyed after the mines were closed. If you have mine records or know of the location of coal company employee records please let us know.

Your help is needed to preserve our coal mining heritage.

Dayton, Wayne Twp., Armstrong Co., PA
[Located on the Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburg Railroad.]
[Dayton was laid out in 1850. In 1849, a group of people got together to decide what to call the village they were sure would arise from the little hamlet that existed at the time. They had to pick some name that was not already taken by some other town in Pennsylvania. Somebody suggested Dayton, presumably because of some mental association with Dayton Ohio. John Dayton was from New Jersey and served as speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States from 1795 to 1799. In 1913, there were 13 stores, 2 liverymen, 2 jewelers, 1 tailor, 2 butchers, 1 druggist, 2 barbers, 1 undertaker, 2 physicians, 1 dentist, and 2 hotels. There was also a large flour mill. Another large company was the Dayton Coal Company. Presently, Dayton is probably just a little smaller than it was in 1913. The Dayton Fair late in the summer attacts big crowds to the area.]
