Mawk or Overbay Family

I am searching for information on my grandfather and grandmother. They have lived in both TN and Appalachia/Osaka VA. My grandfather's name is James Paskum Mawk born in Osaka in 1913. His wife was Stella Mae Overbay born in TN.

Family folklore says that my grandfathers parents are buried in the Kilbourne Cemetery. I visited there severl years ago and it is in horrible shape most all tombestones are gone, broken, or damaged. But there is one tombestone that says Daughter of A.D. and Laura Mauck "Aner B. Mauck". Wrong spelling of the last name, but right first names. I found a census report that says Adam and Laura had two children Clyde and Aner. Again, family lore is that Clyde raised my grandfather. Does anyone know anything about this family? Clyde and maybe James worked in the Coal mines. Is there anyway I could get a list of workers from 1900 to 1930's?
