Benwood (WV) Mine Disaster memorial underway

Classification: Query
The April 28, 1924 explosion of the Benwood Mine claimed at least 119 lives. A memorial committee is at work to have a monument in place by next spring. Consol Energy has donated land on Boggs Run, near the mine's entries, for the monument. Here's the committee's website, with information on the monument plans and current fundraisers:

I have a good bit of information on this mine disaster (I was about to say "this disaster", but I certainly don't mean the committee!)should anyone want or need it.
