Aetna Mill Strike - Belmont Co
Posted by: Nancy Edwards Date: February 13, 2000 at 15:01:43
  of 2195

My great uncle, Solomon EDWARDS, b. in Neath, Wales 1879 & came to USA in 1881, was killed on the picket line during a strike at the Aetna Steel Mill in Aetnaville,Belmont Co, OH. I do not know the year of the strike but am guessing time frame may be 1910-1912 or perhaps earlier in the 1900's. Can anyone shed some light on this strike - - when it occurred; any newspaper articles re the strike and/or my uncle's death, etc.?

Thanks so much,
Nancy Edwards
