Does anyone have a listing of the deaths of coal miners in disasters in Coal mines between 1930-1945? I can't find a great uncle on the Illinois death index from 1916-? He was Bud JOHNSON, born in Georgia about 1880 to Hosea Franklin Johnson,II and Martha Hasseltine WILLARD. I found newspaper articles listed by a gentleman regarding coal mine disaters. But,only one had a listing of those who died.

If any of the above are of interest to you, get back with me. I do have a little more information about these specific accidents.

"BUD" is a nickname, and one needs to know his legal name for identification.

Thank you so much. I didn't find Bud and that is my dilemma. He was not on the 1880 census as he was born probably late that year or the next. Any mention of him in documents was "Bud". I'm going to keep the listing and if I ever find out his real name I'll have the list. What I'm positive of is he was alive in 1925.
