The November 11, 1910 mine disaster killed six men.  There is a question as to who they were.  The Illinois State Coal Report lists one as Charles Chornak, whilst the Montgomery County News lists George Petchoff and not Charles Chornak.  Several of the names were spelled differently also.

The following men are they who were killed in the Panama coal mine from it's opening to closing.
