My mom was almost born in a West Virginia coal mine.  Grandma walked down the descending shaft to take my grandfather his lunch.  She went into labor but they got her out before she gave birth.  That was the only job he could get after coming over from Hungry.  They were rugged people in those days.

Cool photo, my great great grandfather immigrated to West Virginia...had an Uncle their from the old country. Worked briefly in the coal mines..then got hooked up on the huge project called the Magnolia Cutoff which was part of the Baltimore and Ohio rail system linking 13 States with the rail system. Those were some hard working men...
