From Wikipedia

The Fraterville Mine disaster occurred on May 19, 1902. 216 miners died from the explosion., making it the worst mining disaster in the state's history.

Info said the explosion killed all adult males except 3 in this town. Sad to see so many graves all with the same date of death..
