Jermyn sought and secured the contract for opening the Diamond Coal mines at Scranton, and was the first man to put a shovel into that important work

LOL Chris! :D John Jermyn helped found St.James Episcapal Church in Jermyn & was on the vestry. My Father & his Brothers were Alter Boys at St. James in the 1920s-30s. There is a Stained Glass Window of John Jermyn in the sanctuary at St.James too. Take Care.
