THE IMPACT OF THE FRATERVILLE AND CROSS MOUNTAIN MINE EXPLOSIONS ON THE DESCENDANTS OF AARON AND ELIZABETH (HILL) SLOVER
Many families suffered multi-generational losses at the Fraterville and Cross Mountain mine explosions.  Perhaps, the family affected most was that of Aaron SLOVER, 1775-1843, and his wife, Elizabeth (Hill) SLOVER, 1779-1843.

Linda Sue (Slover) Lindsay is a 3rd great granddaughter of Aaron and Elizabeth (Hill) SLOVER.  Linda provided a document of her research of the descendants of Aaron and Elizabeth SLOVER.  She focused on the descendants and spouses who were killed in either explosion.  I have summarized and added to her information to create the outline below, which includes some additional connections to this family.  (The number in parentheses after each name below is the number of the miner in the Fraterville or Cross Mountain miner pages.)
