Jefferson County Pennsylvania - Coal Mines
INDEX  H
[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.
Please donate any mine records, mine maps or copies of them, pictures of the mines, pictures of miners, stories about the miners, mine memorabilia, books on mining, or tax deductable monetary donations to:

Hazen (Maysville), Warsaw Twp., Jefferson Co., PA
[Another little town situate in East Warsaw, was, for a long time, called "Boot-Jack," from the roads that center there, forming a place, in which the town is built, in the shape of a boot- jack. The name given to the place was, however, Maysville; but in 1882 a post- office was established and named Hazen, for the first assistant postmaster- general, since which time the place has taken that name. It is quite a brisk little town, and in 1886 its citizens erected a large school building in which an excellent select school is maintained and well patronized.
Maysville has one store kept by Trimble & Company, and the hotel of W.R. Anderson. In 1880 the town had a population of eighty- two.  (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.).]
