Ireland, Kilkenny : Castlecomer Miners in 1755
Below are names of men who signed a work agreement in 1755. They agreed to give up earlier "perks" of work and to ask for nothing more than the pickings from the cullum. Most left their "mark,". Some of the surname spellings are questionable but that is how they were recently transcribed.
