Do you have the children of William M. Aleshire?He was born about 1860? and died 3/7/1908?Did you find out what he died from?
I found this today while looking for obituaries and copied it.I think it has to be this William since he would have been about 45 and the others were too old or too young that I have.
From Wellston Sentinel, p.19/24/1904NPR22192 at OHS
"A Bad Gash William Aleshire who is employed in Superior No. 8 mine, while going down the entry was struck by a car which knocked him forward striking his head against a rib which inflected an ugly looking wound just above his right-eye.He was also considerably bruised and shaken up."
This may have something to do with his early death.Coal mines were hard on the lungs and very injury prone.
