Info on coal mines near Thornton KY 1921

I am looking for help with finding information on coal mines back in 1921. I recently found my great grandfather's (George H. Greely) death certificate from July 18, 1921 indicating that he died from falling slate. Place of death was Letcher County, Thornton township. His family remained in Detroit MI while he went to work in KY. I don't know how long he was in KY or what coal company he worked for. What I am looking for is maybe work records (if these companies kept them), or any newspaper articles on the mining accident.
