I have discovered a new database on the following web site:http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/community/gen...
“Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission”
Registers of Mine Accidents for the Anthracite Districts, 1899-1972, Record Group 45, Series 14 [series continues in RG-66] (19 volumes) Microfilm Rolls #3586-3592, 6028 Click on
Follow this link for a Database of Anthracite Accidents from 1899-1918
Although this is only a partial list of the many accidents, it does contain much valuable information.
