As the little engine was pulling a load of 100 barrels of black powder between Soddy and the coal tipple at Long Spring, on Soddy Creek, one of the barrels fell from the moving train. The barrel busted and was ignited by a spark from the engine. The resulting explosion destroyed the engine and killed the engineer. Billy Lloyd, son of W. R.

42 BIOGRAPHY: D. R. Griffiths, merchant and farmer at Sale Creek, was born in South Wales, November 20, 1834, and came to America in 1864. He first settled in Steubenville, Ohio, but in a short time removed to Shamokin, Penn., and from there to Hubbard, Ohio, in October of the same year. In March, 1868, he came to Sale Creek, where he has since resided. Previous to this, in 1866, he, with nineteen others, then living in Ohio, organized a company to come to East Tennessee and lease some coal mines. They opened up the mines in the same year, and continued very successfully, considering the poor market they had, until 1880, when the company sold out to the present owners. Mr. Griffiths began working in the mines at the early age of seven, and continued this up to 1880. He then opened a store at Sale Creek, and has engaged in this business, in connection with farming, up to the present. He also deals very extensively in tan-bark; and in 1883 they handled $16,000 worth of the same, averaging per year about $5,000. What education Mr. Griffiths has was picked up by the family fireside. He began working for himself at the age of seventeen, and has accumulated considerable property by his own exertions. In 1854 he married Miss Ruth Richards, who was born in January, 1836, and who is the daughter of William and Margaret Richards, of Aberdare, South Wales. To our subject and wife ten children were born, of whom four boys and two girls are now living: William, David, Thomas, Richard, Annie (Mrs. Reese), and Ruth (Mrs. Thompson). Mr. Griffiths is a Republican in politics, and he and wife are members of the Union Church at Sale Creek, although reared Baptists. Goodspeed's "History of East Tennessee" 1887

44 BIOGRAPHY: Lloyd was born in 1845 at Mt. Plesant, Cowbridge, Glamorgan, and came to the U. S. in 1863. He first settled at Broadtop, Pennsylvania, then Pittsburgh, then Brookfield, Ohio, where he was part of the group of Welshmen who formed a coal company. Lloyd was manager of the Soddy mines from their opening until his death. He was one of principal coal operators in the South; the value of his mines was ever-increasing and, with it, Lloyd's wealth. Lloyd died in 1911. [His obituary and photo appear in Cambrian XXXI (August 15, 1911), p. 13.]

BIOGRAPHY: He was one of the fifteen incorporators of the Soddy Coal Company. Abram Lloyd had confidence in the mining operation and the community, so he bought out the rest with few exceptions. Now the chief owner of the mines, Lloyd became very prosperous once the railroad was finally built and the mines began to function. At that time, approximately 50 Welsh families lived in the area, and the number increased. Most came from Aberdare.

BIOGRAPHY: A. Lloyd, general superintendent of the Soddy Coal Company, was born June 14, 1845*, in South Wales. He came to America in the spring of 1863, and located first in Pennsylvania. He moved from there to Ohio, and in 1867 came to Soddy, where he has since remained. He was one of a company of twenty, mostly Welsh people, who organized a company, and our subject was sent to Soddy to prospect for coal, which being very promising, they at once opened up the coal mine. There being no railroad by which to ship their coal, they built a narrow gauge railroad to the river and shipped by steamboat. In 1874 it was reorganized, and the present company took charge. A. Lloyd and L. W. Morgan were the stockholders in the old company, the rest of the company were new members. It began with a capacity of 500 bushels per day, and it now has a capacity of 500 tons of coal and coke. Arrangements are now being perfected for a much greater capacity. Mr. Lloyd is principally concerned in this company's coal interest in Arkansas. Our subject received his education mostly by his individual application, having attended subscription schools only six months in his life. He is the fourth of five children, born to Evan and Catherine (Reese) Lloyd. The father was born about 1808 and died in 1875. The mother was born about 1814, and died in 1873. They came to America in 1870. Our subject began life as a day laborer, and by his industry and ability as a business manager and financier has accumulated quite a fortune. He married Miss Margaret Evans June 4, 1864. She is also a native of Wales, born in 1840, and the daughter of Morgan and Eliza Evans, natives of Wales. Mrs. Lloyd came to America in 1863, and by her union with our subject became the mother of six children: Elizabeth (deceased October 8, 1886), Evan (assistant bookkeeper at the Soddy Coal Company's office in Chattanooga), Morgan (deceased), Kate, Helen, Maggie and Ida. Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd are members of the Welsh Congregational Church. Mr. Lloyd usually votes the Republican ticket, but votes more for principle and the best man. He is a Royal Arch Mason and is a member of the I. O. O. F. The church with which Mr. Lloyd is connected was organized in 1871, and its congregation is composed of Methodists, Baptists and Congregation­alists, principally the latter. It is in a very prosperous condition, has a splendid Sunday-school, and Rev. Morgan is the pastor. He is a native Welshman and preaches in both the English and Welch languages.

He organized the Seventh Tennessee Regiment, of which he was colonel, enlisted in the fall of 1861, and was a very warm supporter of the stars and stripes. Hearing that they were threatened by the Confederates, this regiment disbanded and fled to Kentucky. He was captured while returning from carrying some dispatches from Gen. Burnside to Gen. Rosecrans. He was taken to Atlanta, where he was retained in captivity about four mouths. He then made his escape in February, 1864, and reached home the same month. He was magistrate of his district eighteen years, and was also colonel of the State militia. He was greatly harassed by the Confederates during the late war, but to the last remained a stanch Union man. He was also a very fine business man, and when he died his effects were estimated to be worth $1,000,000. He died February 17, 1886, aged ninety. Mrs. Clift was born February 22, 1795, in East Tennessee; she died August 17, 1847. Goodspeed's "History of East Tennessee" 1887 Clift, Colonel William (I3)

He worked on a farm until fourteen years of age, after which he worked at coal min­ing as a day laborer. He began life a poor man and owes his elevation to his present position to his own ability as a practical miner. He received his education in the subscription schools of South Wales, and at the age of twenty-one began working for himself. In 1859 he married Miss Margaret Thomas also a native of Wales, who came to this country with her husband. By this union they had these children: William T.
