My grandfather was Wm. John Reid Hutchi(n)son, a Scottish immigrant who worked for the Wood Coal Company at Ethel, WV in Logan County during the late 30's and early 40's. He was killed in the mines by a roof fall, but I do not know the date.
My father was John Hutchi(n)son, who was born in 1922 in Cresap, WV, which I believe is also in Logan County. It is possible that Cresap is the location of my grandfather's death.
Any info. on these mines or names would be greatly appreciated.
Also seeking info. about my grandmother, who, it is believed, was not married to my grandfather.
God's Peace.

Wood Coal Co.

WOOD COAL COMPANY WAS LOCATED ABOUT FIVE MILES FROM LOGAN WV ON WHAT IS NOW CALLED RT17.
AT ONE TIME ETHEL HAD OVER 5,000 PEOPLE NOW EVEN THE RAILROAD IS REMOVED.
THE FOLLOWING MINES WAS IN OPERATION THE SAME TIME WOOD COAL COMPANY WAS AND WITHIN A FEW MILES OF EACH OTHER, AME COAL, WANDA COAL, FORT BRANCH, FREEZE FORK, GEORGE'S CREEK, THERE WAS A FEW MORE BUT IT WAS NOT UNCOMMON TO LEAVE ONE COMPANY AND START TO WORK FOR ANOTHER THE NEXT DAY.
WISHING YOU ONLY THE BEST

Ace,
Thanks so much for the info on Wood Coal Co. I'm surprised to get a reply since I posted the message so long ago. I remember my Dad talking about Wanda Coal and Freeze Fork.
You're a Gem.
