Fuller Station, Pine Creek Twp., Jefferson Co., PA
[The most extensive coal operations in Pine Creek were made a few years ago by the Jefferson and Rocky Bend Coal Companies and by Abel Fuller, in the vicinity of Fuller Station. These works were first opened about the year 1872, by Perkins & Co., of New York, on land owned by Lindsay Moore, part of the Holden tract. It was then purchased by Captain John M. Steck, of Brookville, and Corydon Karr, of New York, and was run by Adams & Moulton, of Buffalo, N.Y., for about two years, then leased to Elias Rodgers & Co., with Howard Nicholson, manager.
The coal first mined was bright, firm and black, and was analyzed by the Buffalo Gas Company, as follows: Gas, 9,000 cubic feet; coke, 37 bushels; candle power, 13.6. The coal was about 5' thick, and is pronounced by W.G. Platt in his geological report to be the Mercer upper coal. After getting the mine in good order, and admirably arranged for shipment, the coal was found to, not realize the expectations formed by the outcrop, the bed being found "faulty," and the coal hard to mine and yielding rather indifferent fuel, and the mine was abandoned. It is still owned by the Rocky Bend Company.  (from "History of Jefferson County" With Illustrations and Biographical Sketches of Some its Prominent Men and Pioneers. Edited by Kate M. Scott, Syracuse, N.Y.; D. Mason & Co. 1888.).]
