Does anyone have any info on the Echols Mine which was owned by Louisville Gas & Electric. Would have been in operation in the late 1880's/early 1900's. Located in Echols, Ohio Co., KY. My grandfather worked for the mine and was a member of the U.M.W. of A. Local 678. I have a dues receipt out of Central City, KY.

I wrote and published a book on "History of Rockport and Echols." I have an article in it on the Echols mine. If you will send me your snail mail address, I will make copy of that article and mail it to you.
I only have two copies of the book left, which sells for $20.
