Page 2 of 1910 Letter

Several coal companies are mentioned in the last paragraph of this page: Indiana Coal Company, Kent Coal Company, and Jefferson and Clearfield County Coal and Iron Company, the "J&CC&ICO." These and other coal companies were frequently intertwined, having one board of directors sit as the board of directors of another company. Land purchased under the name of one company was frequently sold to another company in which the first company had financial interests. The last paragraph also mentions the improvements on the Belle Jewell farmland that was purchased by the Coal Company. Part of McIntyre was built upon this property. Read Page 3 to find out the names of some families who sold their land to the Coal Company and how much the Coal Company was willing to pay for future land purchases in the area.
