RE: 111744215 Yes, I will be correcting the translations on the memorial. I see the translator made one omission, perhaps a colloquialism was inscribed? I wonder if "ERRI." means "error," or "died by mistake," since it was an accidental death. I am not certain why the number of dead varies, but wonder if some died within the following days from smoke inhalation, black damp, or other injuries. It has been awhile since I have read accounts of the disaster. May I enquire about your interest? Are you a descendant of a miner, or writing about the incident? Thank you, again, for the assistance with translation. By the way, I hope you have noticed that other miners' Find A Grave memorials also have errors. I don't know how easy it will be to get them corrected.
RE: 111744215 Yes! I do agree! Thank you so very much for your assistance in obtaining a proper translation. I was messing with Google Translator, but considering asking one of the old local Italians to help with it. I have entered all three names and will work on getting the transcription corrected. Have you seen the two Nanni memorials ( father and son, died in Cherry Mine) in the same cemetery? I have been struggling with the inscription on their monument, also, though I think I have their names right. Any chance you might be able to get a translation for their memorials, too??? Memorial # I111647038. I would really appreciate it! Thank you, again!
RE: Francesco (Ladd Ill) I have posted a photo of the inscription, which gives definition to it. You will have to click beneath those photos visible on the memorial page, where it says, "click here to see all photos" in order to view it. I am still working on the translation. The monument memorializes two miners--Gaetano Francesco and Julio Sorbelli. That is not unusual for victims of that tragedy, perhaps done to share the expense of a monument, or so friends could be buried together.
