Putnam Coal Mines
The Putnam Coal Mines are located in Elmwood, West Virginia, Mason
County. The mines started their operation in 1968 and worked until 1971.
The mines were owned by Union Carbide. My dad, my brother, Bert Hess and
Bert Alfred Hess worked at this mine. Following is a list of the workers
that I know of from Union Carbide.
We are looking for more workers. If you know of other men who worked in this
mine, please email
me so they can be included here.
