My uncle, Malcolm George McKelvey, died in the coal mines near Henryetta in 1914. The notice of his death was in the Henryetta Standard Newspaper, March 19, 1914. It reads as follows: "March 16, 1914 M.G. McKelvey, driver, a young man, married only a year, found dead, apparently due to electrocution in Whitehead #2 near Henryetta."
Can anyone give me more information? Could I get a copy of this artice from the newspaper archives? Is there any way I could get more information about this incident or this family's life in Henryetta? Malcolm's mother's name was Lutitia McKelvey. He had brothers Lloyd, Emerson, Irving, and Jesse LaVann. His father died around 1894 of black lung disease, maybe in Henryetta.
