I'm looking for anyone who can tell me anything about my grandfather and his family... My grandfather was Ted Johnson... His parents were Richard Glenn and Daisy Johnson... I was told that my grandpa and his dad worked in the mines there....
There's a lady that lives in Hazard that could probably tell you about the coal camps in Hardburly she lived there. My dad grew up there also but he has passed away but this lady wrote a book about Hardburly.

My Mother was born at the Hardburly coal camp in 1930 and lived there until she was 5 yrs old. Her Dad was Daniel Warren, one of the miners. In 1935 he was involved in an accident at the coal mine and severely damaged one of his legs. He soon dies from gangrene poisoning. My Mom is 90 and still alive and has many memories of back then. She and her siblings had to move to the orphanage in Tiffin, Ohio after her Dad died because they had no income to support them.
Does anyone have any old photos or a copy of that booklet that Gladys Stone Potter wrote?
