This is dedicated to Georgia Mink, my aunt and one of the Balkan teachers. I would also like to dedicate this to John L. Davis, my grandfather and Balkan miner.
John L. Davis(Miner) and Edna Hoskins Davis(wife) (1954)
My sisters Kathy Gale and Andrea Charlene.

I was trying to get Kathy still for the picture and got caught. (1953)

Vivian Wilson, my mother, David Thompson, Peggy Jackson behind and "Blackie" the dog (1947) Note: regular miner housing.
Further I would like to dedicate this page to Herman Wilson, my step-father, Balkan Miner and War World II paratrooper, D-Day and Pacific Theatres.
