Bearheart ethnic origins of Mudcatters (164* d) RE: ethnic origins of Mudcatters 08 Jun 04

Guest, Augie-- where in Pa did your grandfather live? I'm assuming his Ohio time was spent in the Ohio River country (where I make my home) since most of the mines are down in this area. There is an old pony mine on the property next to ours, and the nearest settlement is Mineral-- just down the road from Carbondale. Both nearly ghost towns now, but in its heyday Mineral boasted its own opera house, electric company and post office...

I'd sure like to know more about everybody-- the family history stuff really fascinates me. I know that my interest in folk music was really stimulated by my family's connections to their roots... and sometimes it's the other way around-- the music is a way to re-discover roots...
