Henrietta Day, daughter of Richard Day Sr married Armstead Handy. Armstead packed up the family and left farming for the promise of decent regular pay. Armstead worked the Coal Mines in Jefferson county Alabama, for the Tennessee Coal and Iron company in the 1920's as did Thomas Robert Day from about 1916 to 1928. Armstead was later joined by his son Leon to mine by the 1930 census.
The following article depicts what life was like for many black miners and railroad workers in the South. Particularly those young black men working for Tennessee Coal and Iron in Jefferson County, Alabama.

Rachel and Carter is found on two censuses...probably because, as the Enumerator reports, it took him 3 days to complete. One 1930 Census and here's the other 1930 Census that was done almost 10 days prior. Thanks to having both of these however, we now have more data to extract.
