100 Years Ago Today: Cincinnati Mine Disaster – Day 2

The following article is from the April 24, 1913 edition of The Daily Republican. The lead story was about the huge explosion at the Cincinnati Mine in Courtney PA, just 2 miles from Monongahela. I didn’t have time to transcribe this article but the image should be pretty easy to read:Cincinnati_Mine_Disaster_Daily_Republican_4_24_1913

    A little known fact about the Cincinnati Mine Disaster that I find really interesting, Joseph Weaver, father of Mr Harold Weaver the longtime music teacher in Monongahela, was killed in the mine.

    Is there a list of the dead available? I believe my great grandfather’s brother, William Warner, was killed in the explosion. His brother, my great grandfather John Joseph Warner, was killed in the Germania mine near Finleyville in 1899.
