3325 1897 General notes. In his notes, J P Parcell recalls as a boy he worked for J L Gibson and W R Parcell (2) looking for coal in Bannockburn Creek near the old Cairnmuir mines. He then states " Gibson struck coal near Charlie Angel's tunnel " Charles Angel (2) was listed as a miner in Stones directory in 1887. There is no listing for 1886. The author has no record earlier but has the list for 1879 where only Charles's father is listed. J P Parcell also mentioned Parcell & Gibson sinking a shaft and using an old tailrace (maybe Angel's) as an access.
