Koehler Mining Camp

I was wondering if any body could point me towards a website that might have more information on Koehler Mining Camp. Or, does anybody know if there were any accidents at that camp between 1908-1909. I'm not having much luck finding much about it when it first got started. I'm working on a Great great grandfather that may have worked there and it was rumored that he was killed in an mining accident and lived there.

Thanks

Koehler Coal Camp opened up in the early 1900's,ghost town by 1924 or so.(I had an uncle born there) I've never read of a major accident in Koehler, but no doubt daily accidents were a way of life.
You might check the death records here:

or the NM death records on familysearch.org for the fellow you seek. Deaths were not recorded "officially" in the NM until about 1919--but sometimes you get lucky!

His name is Frank William Young. I don't have any birth dates on him, but I could assume around late 1800's. The dates that he may have been there 1908-1909. He was Married to Nora L Bryant Young. They had a daughter named Hazel. All we know from this that he was killed in a mining accident around that time. In 1910 Hazel was about 2 years of age. By then, Nora was a widow and living in Roton.

Thanks

I have no NM mining accident record for Frank Wm Young, and I have some very extensive records.
