Vandall T. King Information on Mining families in Hancock Coiunty   Among the references I have which are mining related include where people were living in the various mining camps in Acton, Blue Hill, Sullivan, Gouldsboro, etc. If a geneology involved missing bits of family, knowing that they went off to work in the "mines" might provide a clue. Often, mining references indicate the town where the miner originated - information frequently missing in death certificates
