Coal Mining in Knox County, Illinois
Excerpt from 1884 Coal Report3
The forty-six mines in this county are scattered promiscuously over the whole length and breadth of the twenty townships which go to make up the important county of Knox. It would be very difficult to locate at any point in this county which would be more than four miles from a "coal bank."
      The coal produced is for local custom only. There is no railroad switch to any mine in this county. The most extensive mine is owned and operated by George Cliflford, about two miles north-east of Oneida, the annual production being about 6,000 tons. Duffield Brothers, of Abingdon, sunk a shaft at that place during the summer of 1883. Seam No. 2, about twenty- two inches thick, was reached at a depth of eighty-five feet. The engine and boiler were placed close to the shaft, and all inclosed under one roof. Not having an escapement, it was considered unsafe, and rather than sink an escapement at that time, the owners concluded to close the mine, which was done January 15, 1884, with the understanding that when the mine is opened again, the first work done will be the sinking of an escapement. The coal is underlaid with fire-clay of good quality, well adapted for the manufacture of tile. Two feet of this clay will be taken out with the coal, and a tile factory added to the mine, both of which will probably be in operation during the fall of 1884.
      In Rio township a mine is owned by H. Gilchrist & Co., of Rapids City, but it is rented from year to year, and operated by different parties. Like all, or nearly all, mines operated in this manner, the condition of the mine gets worse and worse from year to year, until it is abandoned, with one-half of the coal left and totally lost. The coal is raised by steam power. This seam is about six feet thick in the center of the "basin," and gets thinner towards the edge. The extent of the basin is not more than five or six acres, with about one-half of it worked out. The seam is probably No. 1.
      Three mines are located at Soperville, about six miles north of Galesburg. A good business is done in winter, but little or nothing during the summer months. The seam is No. 1.
      There are also mines at Knoxville, Wataga, Yates City, Maquon, Truro and Victoria, employing from one to five men in each mine in winter. In summer they are generally shut down, or won't average more than one man to each mine.
      During the year three escapements have been completed at Knoxville, one at Maquon and one at Yates City.
      In tabulating the geological number of the seams, the opinion of Mr. Fred. B. Jelliff, of Galesburg, (late County Inspector of Mines,) has been followed, he having devoted some time to the study of the geology of Knox county.

November 19, 192842, John Adams, of Alpha, miner, age 42 years, married, was killed in Galesburg Mining Company's mine. Deceased was riding in the man trip to his working place. The trip, running faster than usual, he thought was running away, and he jumped over the side of the car and was caught between the trip and coal rib. He leaves a widow and two children.
 
ARMSTRONG
August 18, 191126, Thomas Armstrong, of Soperville, miner, aged 33 years, married, was killed by a fall of slate at his working place in the mine of T. H. Milan Bros., Soperville, Knox County. He leaves a widow.

BAINES
March 3, 190418. William T. Baines, of Yates City, miner, aged 52 years, married, was killed instantly by a fall of roof at the face of his working place in the mine operated by the Yates City Coal Co., located near Yates City, Knox county. Deceased and his partner were driving the main north entry. A clay slip had been struck running nearly parallel with the working face, this slip was stripped or exposed the entire width of the entry, except about five feet on one side. A blast had been fired in the remaining five feet, exposing the slips clear across the entry. After firing the blast Baines went to work at the face, the blast having shaken the roof it suddenly fell with the result as stated, also seriously injuring his partner. Deceased leaves a widow and two children.

CRAIG
October 7, 193044, George L. Craig, of Knoxville, miner, age 54 years, married, was killed in Galesburg Mining Company's mine by a fall of rock. He leaves a widow.
 

D
DAGEN
November 11, 192842, Fred Dagen, of Galesburg, laborer, age 49 years, married, died from injuries received one week earlier in Galesburg Mining Company's mine, when he fell from tipple to ground. He leaves a widow and two children.
 
DeBOW
August 8, 189813, John DeBow, of Etherley, miner, aged 34 years, married, leaves a widow, was found dead in C. P. Wager's mine, three miles west of Etherley, Knox county, on the morning of the above date. Andrew DeBow, a brother, and the deceased worked together in the mine. The deceased went to work in the morning and was followed by his brother about thirty minutes afterwards. When the brother went to the mine he could not find the deceased, and after looking for some time, returned to the house and got more help to look for him. After searching for some time they discovered an opening into an old mine that had been closed up because it was on fire. He was found in this mine dead. Apparently he had opened up this old mine to see if the fire was out, and had gone in and was smothered by the gas before he could get out. This mine had been closed since last April.
 
DOLAN
August 27, 190217, Peter Dolan, of Etherley, furnace man, aged 70 years, married, was injured by a fall of roof at the face of a working room in the Etherley Coal company's mine No. 2, located at Etherley, Knox county, and died Sept. 7, 11 days after the accident. He leaves a widow.
      Part of the duty of the deceased was to mine the coal with which the furnace was supplied; he was engaged in this work when the roof began cracking, and giving evidence of caving in; while in the act of pushing the pit car out of the room, the roof fell, pinning him underneath. He was unable to extricate himself, and was not found for several hours; his injuries were comparatively slight, and his death was due, more to old age and the shock, than to the injuries received. He leaves a widow and a grown up family.
 
DUBOIS
February 26, 192943, Phillip Dubois, of Galesburg, miner, age 57 years, married, died from injuries received three days previous in Galesburg Mining Company's mine by a fall of coal. He leaves a widow and one child.

GREEN
October 11, 196275 , Mr. Lloyd Green, of Canton, aged 64 years, married, was fatally injured as a result of multiple crushing injuries which he received on October 11, 1962 at the Midland Electric Coal Corporation, Middlegrove No. 2 Mine, Farmington, Knox County, Illinois, at about 3:20 p.m. Mr. Green was employed as a Truck Driver and had had 29 years experience at this mine.
      The accident occurred when the truck he was driving collided with an empty coal company truck driven by Charles H. Morgan, causing apparent instant death. The collision occurred near the junction of the haulage roads serving pits Nos. 5 and 6, when the loaded truck was en route from the #6 pit and the empty truck was proceeding towards the #5 pit.
      The road was 50 feet wide and wider where it approached the junction, the road surface in good condition, the weather clear and sunny and the view of the drivers unobstructed for over 650 feet. Mr. Morgan stated that he saw the other driver coming out of the curve had put on his brakes, causing the truck to skid and that when it appeared that it was headed toward him, he gunned his truck towards the left side of the road to try to avoid the other truck. They collided near the right front end of both trucks, both were extensively damaged and the cab of the loaded truck demolished.
      He leaves a widow.
 
GRIGGS
November 6, 197892 . Mr. Joe E. Griggs, of Peoria, age 22, single, came to his death by fall into a coal crusher while performing his duties as Plant Foreman at approximately 3:05 P.M., on Monday, November 6, 1978 at Midland Coal Company, Mecco Mine, Victoria, Knox County, Illinois.
      Mr, Joe E. Griggs received information that there was a problem at the hopper feeder above the crusher, mud and coal had stopped the feeder. The deceased climbed with a shovel onto the pile while the crusher was still running. The vibration from the crusher had formed a cavity in the material on which Joe Griggs was standing. When the coal above the cavity would no longer support his weight, he fell directly into the crusher, William Minton saw him the instant he fell and screamed for the crusher to be turned off.
 

H
HERRIN
January 30, 195165 , William Herrin, of Galesburg, tractor operator, aged 51 years, married, was killed when he was crushed between a cross-beam and the steering column of the tractor, in Little John Coal Company's No. 5 Mine. He leaves a widow.
 

K
KELLEY
September 13, 195266, Phillip A. Kelley, of Farmington, greaser, agd 29 years, married, was killed when he was struck by a truck in Midland Electric Company's Rapatee No. 3 Mine. He leaves a widow and two children.
 

L
LUNDEEN
March 13, 189610, Andrew Lundeen, of Wataga, aged 40 years, a miner, employed mining coal in Hamilton Taylor's local mine, situated one and one-half miles east of Wataga, was fatally injured by falling slate. He died on the 17th of April. At the time he received his injuries he and his partner were running coal off a pillar in southeast entry, and had taken but one fall of it, about two feet deep, and the width of the pillar, 15 feet. Over this coal there is a draw slate between four and six inches thick, which either falls after the coal or is taken down, and in some instances is propped up. In this case, Lundeen and his partner were waiting to have all their loose coal loaded out before removing or securing the draw slate, and an hour previous to Lundeen receiving his injuries, the foreman, Mr. Roddell, was in the place and called their attention to the draw slate, which afterwards fell. The piece that fell measured 2 1-2 x 6 feet in area and 4 inches thick. It broke in two over his body, inflicting spinal injuries which resulted in death. He left a widow and three children.
 

M
MOORE
January 28, 192943, William H. Moore, of Rushville, miner, age 55 years, married, died from injuries sustained by a fall of rock on January 16, in M & C Coal Company's mine. He leaves a widow and three children.
 
MOSHER
July 2, 194054 , Hollis E. Mosher, of Williamsfield, miner, aged 25 years, married, died from an accident received on December 22, 1937, at the Knoxville Mining Co., leaving a widow and two children. Cause of accident, fall of slate.
 

O
OLIVER
August 25, 190924, William R. Oliver, of Victoria, miner, age 17 years, single, was severely crushed through the body by falling with a rapidly descending cage in John Myers, now J. A. Kings' local mine, located near Victoria, Knox county. Deceased with two other miners got on the cage to go down the shaft, which is 67 feet deep; just as the cage started from the top of the shaft, the brake on the drum failed to work, and the cage dropped suddenly to the bottom of the shaft, injuring Oliver fatally, and the other two miners slightly. It may be said by way of explanation, that this is a single shaft, that is, there was only one cage way and one cage. The loaded cage was hoisted to the surface by horsepower, then the drum was thrown "out of gear" and the empty cage and car lowered to the bottom by means of a brake on the drum. This brake band slipped down under the drum and failed to work when needed. Deceased received internal injuries from which he died twelve hours after the accident.
 

P
PARRISH
May 16, 195568 . Charles F. Parrish, age 49, married, no dependent children, came to his death caused by injuries and shock accidentally received when he was crushed between two railroad coal cars at 2:15 P.M. May 16, 1955, at the Stonefort Coal Corporation's Little John mine in Copley Township, Knox County, Illinois.
      The deceased brought two loaded cars down to weigh. The second car stuck on the switch, with rear trucks about 10 feet from point of latch. The deceased went back in the yard to bring an empty railroad car to bump the load. The car he rode down was on a different track. He stayed on the end of the car, trying to open the draw bar.
      When the cars hit, the draw bars missed and let the ends of the cars come together, catching him at the shoulder. He could not be released until the draw bars of both cars were cut. He was killed instantly. He had 13 years experience at this mine.
 
PROUD
September 29, 18833, Matthew Proud, a miner, aged 39 years, married; leaves a widow and one child; was killed instantly by a fall of roof, in Duffield Bros.' mine, located at Abingdon, Knox county. The mine is a new one. The shaft had just been completed. Proud was engaged in cutting a ditch from the sump at the bottom of the shaft, to the face of the main entry, when a large mass of soap-stone fell from the roof, killing him instantly.
 

R
REECE
September 8, 18844. William Reece, a coal operator and miner, aged 38 years ; married ; leaves a widow ; lost his life by inhaling carbonic acid gas, generally known as black damp, at or near the bottom of his coal shaft, located three miles east of Wataga, Knox county.
      Deceased had abandoned the mine for the summer, (a very common practice with mines of this class), intending to operate it again for the fall and winter trade. On the morning of September 8 he went to his shaft for the purpose of hoisting the water, about three feet of which had accumulated in the mine; toward noon his gin horse was found alone at the shaft and Reece was missing. An alarm was raised at once, and after two hours' effort to clear the mine of "black damp," the deceased was found close to the bottom of the shaft. The supposition is that Reece went down the shaft, which is only twenty feet in depth, and supplied with ladders, to ascertain how much water was in the mine, and was overcome before he reached the bottom. When the mine was visited, three days after the accident, a light ceased to burn twelve feet from the top of the shaft. Had the customary precaution of lowering a lighted lamp into the shaft been taken at first, this accident need not have occurred.
      The pillars were taken out after the accident and the mine is now abandoned.
