I've added a couple of brief 1914 articles:

A brief social note about Nora Cadle, Raleigh Herald, Beckley, W.Va., 04 Dec 1914, Page 5, that mentions she lost family in the disaster.

Eccles Pays Huge Compensation, Raleigh Herald, 14 Aug 1914, Page 7, that says the European War could delay claims to family members who live in foreign countries.

I also found a 10 May 1965 column, Beckley Post-Herald, Page 4, by Shirley Donnelly, 183 Men Killed In 1914 Blast At Eccles, that has information about Leonard Rhodes and his family (Rhodes/Rodes) and mentions the 1926 blast at Eccles which killed 19 miners. E-mail me from West Virginia Memories if you are interested in that newsclip.
