My mothers family were from around the areas you memtion. There was alot of strip mines around the areas . My Granfather Horace Alonzo Lowe work at one of the mines . They lives around Seelyville I know he talk about the mines. He died in 1966 from what they said was black lung. He was 66 years old when . My mother's mother's family of Ray work in some of them. As far as I know the mines are closed. The only thing you will fine is some of them are now turn into ponds of small lakes. Up around Manfield will fine the Old Hickory Mines that has water, On Sand Cut Road or Realo Grand Payment you will fine ponds or small lakes there. Lost Creek Mines I believe that's around what they call Delt's I could be wrong. I will post a this Lost Creek Mine with the Mineer's Mine Site that I have Connection To and see if they would come up where it is located actly ay.
