Looking for any info, pics, and maybe maps of the Glen Alden complex, and specifically the pyne neighborhood circa 1930s. Don't have a mine name. I will be searching the state archives for a John Roberts who was killed in one of those mines in some sort of cable accident, assuming hoist. About 1936-38. If anyone has any pics of area I'd love to have some to print for someone.

Did as much digging on my own as I could overnight, I believe I found him in the PA register of fatalities. Killed in 1930 not 1938, John Roberts. He was a pulleyman as his grandson states, and said he lived in the Pyne neighborhood, I found he was killed in the Pyne shaft. Any pics, maps, info on this would be great.

No, not my relative. The person responsible for me still being here's great grandfather.
