[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.

Yukon, South Huntingdon Twp., Westmoreland Co., PA
[A Coal Company Patch town in South Huntingdon Twp., Westmoreland Co., Pennsylvania.]
[Yukon. As I read in Mr. J. Vidman's report there are some 30 Slovene families who own their homes and about 30 single men, all together about 100 people of Slovene descent. They came in 1908 from the Lower Carniola (Dolenjska). Among the first ones were J. Vidman, G. Mastrle, M. Mackovsek, A. Lavric, A. Golobic, M. Kova, J. Lovsin and F. Nihelic. They work in the mines. J. Tomsic and J. Lavrin are storekeepers.
They attend Mass in the Slovak church where Rev. M. Tusek is the parish priest. The religious situation is mediocre. There are two benefit societies in the community: the Lodge #117 "New Home" of the SNPJ and SSPZ Lodge #34. The first one was founded on 13 April 1909 and has 30 members. The latter one was founded on 1 April 1910 and has 22 members. Many are enrolled in other benefit organizations.  {from Rev. J.M. Trunk text published originally in 1912 Part 8, History of Slovene Communities.}.]
