Henry Alman

Henry Allman went to work in the mines in 1897,when he was only nine years old. His nick-name was shorty. They said he was so little that his lunch bucket dragged along the railroad as he walked to work. As an adult he was a mine foreman.
Henry's father, Ephraim Allman, was also a miner, and Ephraim's father, Jesse, worked in the mines in Ohio.
Henry's wife, Sarah Edith Woodrum Allman, told a story of company men coming in to their house to check for weapons. She believed that cleanliness was next to Godliness, and I remember her saying, "they stuck their dirty hands right down in our flour and sugar looking for guns"
