That's Cannel Coal...starts with a "C" and has 2 n's..
Apologies for big thread drift that follows...Moderator, please do move if best not here.
Cannel Coal was the most desirable and profitable coal before all other coals.
Cannel Coal was the source for "coal oil" used for home lighting before natural gas lighting came about, petroleum then was only known to a few indians and maybe Thomas Edison wasn't born yet.
Western PA and Eastern Ohio had 30' thick veins of this cannel coal barely beneath the surface and it was all mined out by men and hand shovels and then hauled by horse and wagons to the big markets like residental New York City where it fetched big money from those who could afford it..
Locally a PA community still bears the name of that coal era... Cannelton. It was a booming town as one can imagine for that time era.
Bituminous coal, at this time and point, was despised and was a major annoyance when it was found in the way of finding and mining the highly sought oil rich cannel coal.
The wide use of the stationary steam engine and then the eventual coming of railroads with the steam powered locomotive engine did changed how bitumious coal was looked at forever. Coal built this country!!! (too bad now it gets kick to the curb and then thrown under the bus)
On a side note: This same tri-state region is now in the beginning stages of both the Marcellus and Utica Shale Plays.
Big Oil producer Shell Oil is now "hot and heavy" on early pre-construction site work for a new multi-billion dollar "ethane cracker".
Is this merely a coincidence in the local geology???
