Black Diamonds of Sheridan: A Facet of Wyoming History
by Stanley Kuzara, 1977

Indexed by Cynthia A. Georgen, 1998

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.

Indexer’s Notes: This index contains all the surnames, place names, organizations and business names included in Mr. Kuzara’s 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.)
