[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.]

Your help is needed to preserve our coal mining heritage.

Ramey, Gulich Twp., Clearfield Co., PA
[Located on the New York & Pittsburg Central Railroad & The Pennsylvania Railroad.]
[Ramey. Ed Schmidt submitted a lengthy report. I understand that there are about 10 Slovene families here. The first Slovene immigrant to come here was A. Kucinic, who came in 1888 from Metlika. All Slovenes are proud owners of their homes, but the single men come and go since the wages are poor. The Lodge of St. Barbara #61 has nine members. They attend the Slovak church in Houtssdale which is three miles away.
Some children are enrolled in either the Slovak or Irish school. Parents say: "It is all the same, since we have to pay for the education in parochial schools." Now and then a Slovene priest visits the community. The Irish and Slovak priest are not very enthusiastic over the visits. All are American citizens and they are Socialists, but they are not atheists, as the report stated. {from Rev. J.M. Trunk text published originally in 1912 Part 8, History of Slovene Communities.}.]
