|Birth: ||Dec. 29, 1871|

Thomas Hall was my Granduncle. Son of Thomas Hall Sr. and Caroline Sparks. Brother of my grandfather, John Hall. He immigrated with his family in 1888 from Yorkshire, England to PA. They settled in Houtzdale, PA and later moved to South Fork, PA. He became a coal miner like his father and grandfather, and my grandfather. His wife's name was Sarah and his children, Alice, Sarah, and Thomas. Wife Sarah died sometime between 1900 and 1920. He was living with his sister Roseanna in 1920 and sometime later moved to AZ. I assume he moved there because of his health because he died of TB, the contributing cause coal mining which is stated on his death certificate. It saddens me to know he lived his last days and died so far away from home without family near.
The Coal Miner's Prayer
Each dawn as we rise, lord we know all to well,
We face only one thing - a pit filled with hell.
To scratch out a living the best that we can,
But deep in the heart, lies the soul of a man.
With black covered faces, and hard calloused hands,
We work the dark tunnels unable to stand.
To labor and toil as we harvest the coals,
We silently pray "lord please harvest our souls".
