Depression-Era Coal Mining Accident - Edmond Lane

Classification: Query
I'm looking for information on a coal mining accident that occurred in Kentucky during the 1930's to early 1940's. Edmond Lane was a victim of one of these accidents and is buried in the mine. I found a list of mine accidents on the internet that occurred during that time, but I'm not sure it's a complete list:

12-9-1932, Zero Mine - Yancey, KY - explosion
3-12-1934, No. 10 Mine - Wheatcroft, KY - mine fire
7-17-1935, No. 5 Mine - Van Lear, KY - explosion
7-14-1939, Duvin Mine - Providence, KY - explosion
10-27-1941, Daniel Boone Mine - St. Charles, KY - explosion
11-30-1942, No. 10 Mine - Providence, KY - explosion
9-16-1943, 3 Point Mine - Three Point, KY - explosion

I found partial lists of casualties in three of the above accidents and Edmond Lane was not listed. However, I would like to know if he was a casualty of ANY of the above-listed accidents. Also, if someone has a list of other KY mine disasters during that period that is not listed above, I would appreciate your letting me know.

THANKS!!!
