My Great Grand Father was a coal miner named Clifford Cecil. He was born in Scott Co TN, apparently played some minor league baseball and came to live in Blackey, Letcher County KY. He was born about 1865 and died in Letcher Co in 1926 (maybe 29). The death certificate listed only Mrs Cecil as the notifier but did not give her name. He fathered several children, one born 1886 in Scott Co. TN was Harrison Leonard Cecil, my grandfather. Harrison died at age 27 in a coal mine accident. Another half brother was George Cecil. There were , I believe several other children but it is probable that Clifford was only married to the mother of George Cecil. Clifford had a brother Alfred Cecil and a sister Abigail who married Millard Rosser. They all lived in TN. Clifford's cousin Asbury Cecil reported that he last saw Clifford at the Railroad Station in Blacky KY during the 1920s and the death certificate indicates that he died in Blacky. Any information regarding Clifford Cecil would be appreciated.
