Trail Run (now Robins) Mine

Trail Run Mine(s) (Trail Run - Now Robins)

I have photographs (post cards) of Trail Run and mine.

Does anyone have any information on the mine or the following:

George Harrison arrived in Guernsey County in 1880 from Nothumberland, England. He was followed 8 monthas later (1880-1881?) by his wife Charlotte/Charlotta Minto Harrison and 7 of eventually 11 children.

George became superintendent of the Trail Run Mine and a mine in Wellston, OH. Eventually he became Chief Mine Inspector for the State of Ohio, under 4 governors. George died in Caldwell, Noble Co., Ohio in 1913.

I believe George's son William (Will) Harrison had a son, "Scotty", who was raised in Trail Run after his mother's death. I believe Will remarried and was widdowed the second time and remarried the third time. He died in Jackson, Jackson Co., Ohio, where he is burried.

George's other children (total 9 girls, 2 boys) married into the following families: Heber, Leach, Patterson, Rose, Milhorn (two daughters married the same man after the death of one sitter), Metheny. There is also a Gander connection that I have not pinned down.

Two daughters died very young. Second son, Jack Harrison (Maude - no children) lived and died in Caldwell, Noble Co., OH.

Any information on the above would be appreciated.
