http://wvhistoryonview.org has an image of the sawmill at Goodwill owned by Louisville Coal & Coke. Timber would have been cut there for use at the mines. The image number is 000214, Collection of Photographs from the West Virginia and Regional History Collection of West Virginia University.
These collections have hundreds of mining and other occupational images pertaining to West Virginia - as well as historical images in general. The FIRST thing you should read is "Notes on Rights and Reproductions" in the home page. PLEASE NOTE THAT usage requires permission and fees, you will find a listing of those under the "Order prints" option.
BROWSING the collections is free, and instructional.

---* I have no record of the marriage; please see the memorial of Mintie, where it has been noted by Montcalm Boy as 19 Feb 1918.
