Pioneers in dugouts worked in the mines trying eke out a living in the new world
The unions were sending in men to agitate
to get the unions into the mines.  Eli Saxton
joined with them in agitating for unions
and  as a result, he was fired. This occurred
just before the mine explosion of 1895,
which killed so many, but probably saved
his life.  Even though he was not working at
the mines at the time, he helped search for
the survivors and get the dead men out.  He
told how parts from the mine were found
clear over by Turner’s hill and all along the
road from the terrible
explosion.
Sarah Godfrey Evans would have rather lived in quiet North Ogden, Utah. Here husband and his brother Joseph lost their lives in an explosion 1886. They are
buried in the Ben Lomond Cemetery in North Ogden.
