Looking for two incidents. My G-father Floyd Thurman "Boots" Little was killed in an accident in May 1938, I'm told he was exiting the mine with another man when the dynamite strapped to his back ignited. The two men were killed. The family was in Buchanan County.

Also when Floyd was a baby (b Jan 1908), he is listed on his first census as Floyd Marrs, his mother Mary Spencer was married to Burlin Little, it is Mary's 2nd marriage and Floyd is listed as his step son. Buchanan Co, VA. Was his father (Marrs) killed in a mine too? Burlin worked on a log train and later a mine in Mingo Co. WVA.
