Gaylord Disaster
The following is a complete list of the victims of the Gaylord Mine Disaster:

Thomas Herbert Picton, Peter McLaughlin, Joseph Olds, John Hammer, Michael Walsh, Thomas J. Jones, Richard Davis, James Kingdom, Thomas Cole, Thomas Leyshon, Thomas Merriman, John D. Morris and Daniel Morgan.

PLYMOUTH – As most people get ready to celebrate Valentine’s Day, a local man feels another observance should be noted today.

Stephen Kondrad, 55, who grew up in Plymouth, moved out of the area then returned to his hometown, wants people to remember a tragic event that happened on Feb. 13, 1884.

That’s when 13 miners lost their lives in the mine chambers deep below the Gaylord Shaft.

The Gaylord Colliery was located in Plymouth, between Cherry Street and Washington Avenue and the Gaylord Mine was operated by the Kingston Coal Company.

“We just observed the 52nd anniversary of the Knox Mine Disaster,â€
