Me and my cousin are looking for any infomation on our grandfather Thomas Moody who we believe was mining in West Virginia (summerlee area) from approx 1905 - 1917.We think he came to the West Virginia area to look for his half brother James Stokes, who was later killed in a mining accident. Our grandfather enlisted into the u.s. army in 1917 after taking american citizenship, returned to England, married, demobed after the war and stayed in G.B. Jack berry (who was the mine foreman) and his wife Cissy were close friends of our grandfathers. Any info, Knowledge or connections with any of the above please contact us at e-mail address provided.

Hello Phillip! I saw your post about your grandfather in Summerlee around 1917. I am researching my great grandfather in the same area around the same time. In 1920 census he was in Summerlee (Oak Hill area). Could you tell me which mine he may have worked at? What mine was in Summerlee at that time? Also- do you by chance know if that mine had a cemetary? Thank you so much, -Aimee.
