Robert Gresl Collection
These are pictures from the collection of Robert Gresl. His father Charles Gresl was scheduled to work the night shift the day of the disaster. He was part of the rescue team that went down trying to locate the missing miners. Three of his brothers were killed in the explosion. Robert also provided copies of undated handwritten notes explaining his families connection to Coalhurst. These were written by Alice White and John Dan White. These have been transcribed and can be accessed using the links on the right. Scans of the original documents will be added soon.
