copper miners devon

Mount Gambier
Hi, Most of my ancestry have been copper miners in the Devon area.
I have tracked the family to chester at one point where they worked in lead mines. Sadly, most of them didn't live long lives due to working conditioins or ill health. Most of them lived in very close proximity to each other.
