We got back to Knoxville Saturday night, Sunday the weather was great but we were to tired to do anything other then sit around and rest. Monday we were ready to go but it rained all day and it's rained most of today. Cabin fever was setting in so we took a few back roads into Clinton to do a some shopping, on the way there came across another small cemetery with a bunch of graves from the Coal Creek/Fraterville Mine Explosion.
Last year we found another little cemetery that had a ton of graves from this explosion.
This cemetery is bigger and there is a large monument with all the names of the victims engraved on it and then the graves themselves are in two circles that surround the monument.
|The 2 closer stones are part on the inner circle, the ones in the background are part of the outer circle.|
Were going to try and find a map next week to see if we can track down some more mining sites.
