Excerpt concering George B. Hale
"George Hale met with an accident last Saturday [31 Dec 1881], which came near being his last. He was lying on the bottom of a coal mine engaged iin mining under when a large quantity of coal fell on him, fastening him in an immovable postion, and rendering it difficult to even breath. A wagon came to the bank for a load of coal, and there being none on the dump, the weigh boss went into the bank to ascertain the cause of the delay. On going to the room where George worked, he discovered his critical condition and set to work to remove the weight which held him down. After getting him out he was carried to the nearest house where an examination of his injuries was made. It was found that the spinal column and other parts of his body were injured, but no fatal results are apprehended. With proper attention, the patient will, in all probability, get along all right."

From a Webster county newspaper, Feb 10, 1933.
