Bendrew and Mallie Colwell are buried at Riverside Cemetery. Bendrew was my great grandmothers brother. Her name was Mahala Fields. Their mother was named Sara Roundtree. Mahala was my grandmother, Serena Campbell’s mother. They lived in Busy.
I’m trying to get some information about my grandfather who was a coal miner in blue diamond coal mine, it is now called triple A coal mine. His name was Sherman Campbell, nickname was “little red” he died around 1950. He was crushed in the mine from a cart. He was mine supervisor. Any information would be great! Thank you!
