This is all the information that I have on these accidents. A newspaper article may have more information about the fatal accident.

Below is the related data that I found for eastern Pennsylvania Mining Accidents 1869-1972:

Date of Accident / Name of Person / Age / Name of Mine (Town) / F=Fatal or N=Nonfatal / Page & Reference Source / County
1918JUN15 SOPACK, ANDREW 24 N 291 60a Luzerne

Year/Month/Day/ Surname / First Middle Name / Age / F=Fatal or N=Nonfatal / Nationality / County
1923 6 19 Sopko 'August 51 fatal Polish Luzerne
1930 10 15 Sopko Peter 22 nonfatal American Lackawanna
1936 9 14 Sopko Mike 47 nonfatal Slavic Lackawanna

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.
