[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.

In 1880 the census gave the population of Pancoast as 131.  (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.).]

Pekin, Warsaw Twp., Jefferson Co., PA
[This little hamlet, situate between Brookville and Richardsville, was settled in 1845 by Emory Bartlett, who built a chair manufactory there which he successfully operated until a short time before his death, in 1883. He was then eighty years of age. Mr. Bartlett’s chairs were substantially and well made and found a ready sale, and there are few houses in Jefferson county that do not own one of his comfortable, old- fashioned rockers. This manufactory is now carried on by his son, A.J. Bartlett.
The name of Pekin was given to the place by Mr. Bartlett, for one of the chief cities in the celestial empire, though he did not carry his admiration so far as to encircle his little town with an impregnable wall.  (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.).]

Prescottville, Winslow Twp., Jefferson Co., PA
[Located on the Reynoldsville & Falls Creek Railroad and the Jefferson County Electric Railway.]
[In 1853 Charles H. Prescott settled about a mile east of Reynoldsville, where the large flouring mill of R.S. Cathers, was located. Mr. Prescott entered largely in the lumber business, established a store, and gathered quite a number of workmen about him, and from 1860 to 1870, Prescottville was the centre of business in Winslow township. R.S. Cathers was also one of the prominent lumbermen of this place, and J.H. Corbet succeeded Mr. Prescott in the mercantile business. Mr. Prescott was an active member of the Baptist Church, and in 1870, was licensed to preach by the Reynoldsville Church. In 1876, he, in connection with John H. Corbet, built the Centennial Hall in Reynoldsville, in order to have a suitable place for religious services. The rooms underneath the hall are rented for secular business purposes, and the revenue thus derived, is, after the expenses are deducted, devoted to general missionary work. Mr. Prescott removed to Michigan about 1880, and his business interests in Jefferson county are now managed by his partner, Mr. Corbet. Prescottville is no longer a busy mart, the only industry of any kind being the large gristmill now owned by T. & S. McCreight. Dr. W.H. Reynolds’s drug store is the only store now in the place. In 1880 the census gives the population of Prescottville as one hundred and thirty.  (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.).]
