             Historical note 
             In 1853, President John Tyler, along with J.M. Smith, C.M. Mathias, Wilson Corprew, and David Conn, organized the Kentucky Coal Company and opened a mine in Union County, Kentucky. The town that sprung up around the mine was named Curlew because of the large number of curlew birds that lived in the area. The mine operated until the start of the Civil War, during which it was destroyed by Union troops. It reopened in 1902 as the Bell Union and Coke Company. The name changed again to the Cooperative Company in the 1920s and the mine remained under that name until it closed in 1931.
