I D Smith, miner, Sec 3, P O Boone, was born in Armstrong county, Pennsylvania, on May 7, 1845, his father was a practical miner, and the son since he was ten years old has been engaged in the same business, he came to this county in 1865, in 1879, after prospecting for coal in several localities, he leased 80 acres of coal land of E Phipps for twenty-five years and purchased 40 acres adjoining, and since that period has been operating with flattering prospects and satisfactory results, the vein he first struck is about three and one-half feet in thickness and constantly increasing, and he has good reason to think in a short time it will reach four and one-half feet and the coal of superior quality
