Diamonds of Sheridan:
A Facet of Wyoming History
by Stanley Kuzara, 1977
Indexed by Cynthia A. Georgen,
The book Black Diamonds of Sheridan is an
excellent account of life in the small coal mining towns which were located north of
Sheridan, Wyoming in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The book is no longer in print,
so we especially want to thank Mr. Kuzara for allowing us to include it in our site.
The book was indexed by Ms. Cynthia A. Georgen, and we
appreciate her many hours of hard work. Ms.
Georgen will be happy to do lookups for you.
Indexers Notes: This index contains all the
surnames, place names, organizations and business names included in Mr. Kuzaras book
on Sheridan area coal mines, mining communities, and related topics. There are several
different spellings for many of the surnames included. Researchers are encouraged to check
all possible spellings. Wives were frequently listed by their husbands names only,
Mrs. John Jones, for example, rather than Mary Jones. As for the mines and associated
camps, it was difficult sometimes to tell whether the articles were referring to the mines
or the camps, i.e., Monarch Mine vs. Monarch Camp. Therefore, researchers are advised to
check both entries.
(NOTE: a "p" after the page number indicates that
there is a photo on that page which is related to that surname, location or business.)
