I am researching my grandparents William and Catherine Duncan. William was a coalminer and worked in one of the Crystal Gate mines prior to June 1916 when he left to fight in WWI. His wife remained in Aguilar for the next 1 to 2 years. She stayed at the Ardington / Cardington ?? hotel in Aguilar (the papers I have are hard to read so I am not sure of the hotel name). Can anyone advise me of the hotels that may have exixted during this time and if there are any mine, city or county records that may list mine workers and/or their families? Also are there any pictures of the town or mines around this time?
Thank you, Rich
