  E27- Cemetery Monument


On Dec 22,1906 six miners lost their lives to equipment failure. Of the six, five were buried at St. Dominic’s Cemetery.  This is the marker that was erected to remind us of the mine disaster.  The names clearly displayed here are Herman Holtmann, Hermann Schleper, August Foppe, Franz Zehrer and Heinrich Middeke. Their funeral was at nine in the morning.  At St John’s Cemetery the sixth miner was laid to rest. He was Walter Schaffner. His funeral started at one in the afternoon the same day as the miners that we buried at St. Dominic’s   Rest in Peace.
