Mining Accident - Scranton PA Area, 1900

Classification: Query
Surnames: Woloszyn (Volosin)
I am looking for information on the death of my wife's great grandfather, Stephen Woloszyn (sometimes spelled "Volosin") who died in a coal mining accident (likely near Scranton) on 3 March 1900, less than a month after he was married. I searched Jerry Sherard's database pages that are available on the PA State Archives site (both Anthracite and Bituminous Districts), but could not find a listing. Stephen was likely a recent Polish immigrant. The death date appears to be reliable as I have a copy of a death record from St. Mary's Greek Catholic Church in Scranton. Thank you.
