My Father In Law ...A Pennsylvania Coal Miner

My Father In Law ...A Pennsylvania Coal Miner

PostBy: Pauliewog On: Sun Jan 15, 2017 11:48 pm

I just ran across this newspaper article from 1958 and wanted to share it.

Although this happened before I met and married his daughter, this story brought back a ton of fond memories of a hard working man who became my father in law and friend.

This was not the only time he narrowly missed death in the mines, but it was one of the funniest stories he shared.
