Christie Wright, President, Park County Local History Archives, just sent me the Coroner's Inquest Records, 1872-1913. She is still scrubbing it and will likely add more information to it as it becomes available. I am, however, an impatient man (in case you have not noticed) and I could not wait to get it on-line. I have put the link in the "Reference File" and you can get to it from the home page (http://www.parkcogop.org). But, I know some of you are just as impatient as I am so the following link will take you right to it.


Really interesting......if you happen to like knowing how people died.

BTW, it looks like Harold Warren also abstracted these records several years ago:

Coal mining among the soils we have before the advent of strip-mining or other means was proven in these records to be dangerous, to breathing, mechanical injury, scalds and burns, and other means.
Most all the coal for the DSP&P, the C&S, and Colorado Midland came, well, by rail.

And, look at all the Italian and Portuguese names in the mines. This is significant in that stone cutting, masonry, and fitting of rocks was a master skill, and those jobs played out. All that was left that paid as well was the mining and blasting.
