Slate is dark shale lying next to the coal beds. It contains impressions of the plant life of distant ages, proving the vegetable origin of coal

1906 Annual Report of the Department of Mines of Pennsylvania - Bituminous Part II Library Call No. TN805.04 A29, page 884

1906Nov10, John Muchiniskey, nationality Russian, occupation loader, age 37, married, National No. 1 mine, Allegheny county, leg broken by falling over a pile of coal in his room

This is all the information that I have on these accidents.

I know the age does not match on the 1906 nonfatal accident, but the name, nationality, occupation, marital status, citizenship and western Pennsylvania all seem to match.
