July, 1887 - Four Englishmen, named Wm. Kellow, Wm. Pengilly, James Vanderslyes and Paul Hastaing, were instantly killed in the Vulcan mine at Norway, Mich., Tuesday morning. They were coming out of the mine in a cage when some men above allowed the tram car to get away, and it went thundering down the shaft and struck the cage. Kellow was a single man, aged 18. The others leave widows and large families.-- [Jackson Citizen 07-05-1887]
