List of Men Killed In The 1914 Eccles Explosion

Page One of Three


The source for the names on the following list is: Woods, James L., 
Raleigh County, West Virginia, Sponsored by Raleigh Co. Historical 
Society 1994, Printed by BJW Printing and Office Supplies, Beckley, 
WV 25801, pages 356-359.  Any information in brackets [] is from 
the following source: Haga, Pauline, Raleigh Co. WV Death Records 
Vol. 3 1896-1914, Published by author, Box 1061, Crab Orchard, WV 
25827, n.p.

After comparing the two lists, I found that there are numerous 
differences in spellings of names.  There were a large number of 
immigrants killed which accounts for the various spellings, however 
it makes it difficult to positively cross-reference names from each 
list.  I have done so when possible, but following the main list you 
will find a short list of names from the Death Records that I cannot 
pair with a name on the Memorial monument.  Ms. Haga notes in her 
book that all of these deaths were reported in May and June of 1914 
except two which are noted at bottom of page.
