Holcomb Mine Safety TeamPictured from left to right:
First Row---Glenn Cornell (my Dad)---Frank Nethkin---Howard Wooten
Second Row---???---Howard Windon---Minner Cummings---Willis Cornell (my uncle)
Information from: Glen (Buster) Cornell
My Dad was the captain of this team and I often watched them practice out where the old cannon used to be in front of RHS. And at some point this team would compete with other mines in the area and state. The competition was to present the team with certain injuries and they were judged on how well they did. Howard Wooten, also our neighbor was always the injured one since he was the smallest, and easiest to carry on a stretcher.
Hopefully you can use this information for an update.
Name Correction Miners
Concerning the photo of the Mine Rescue Team. Back row, second from left, you have the name of the miner wrong. The correct spelling is Howard Windon
That's my granddad, God rest his soul.
