I’ve been told that my grandpa, William Herbert Miesen, was postmaster and general store owner in Colemont Co. and was wondering if you know this name and is it true? His only son, William H. Miesen jr. was my father.
My relatives mostly live in and around Waden Co. I only met my grandfather once as a little girl, and wish I knew more about him…
I met the owner of the wamsley ranch in walden, where my dad worked as a young man,and he rembered my grandpa from Colmont, and said he wasn’t very popular back then… :) the Van Valkinburgs (cattle ranchers) remembers my grandfather from Colemont as well…
Just wondering if you or any one, remembers his name ?
Thank you!

My mom recently passed away at 94, Kathleen DeClercq. Daughter of Mike and Annie Beliak who were long time residents of Blakeburn and Coalmont. My mom often spoke of these places fondly and the great people that lived there.
One of the homes that she grew up in is still standing, known as one of the seven sisters. What a beautiful area!

My grandfather was killed in the mine explosion. He left behind a wife, and two children, my mother was one of them. I have been to Coalmont a few times, and visited the cemetery where the miners were laid to rest. Can't think of a nicer place to be buried, overlooking the land.

Proud to say I've been an avid fisherWOman on the Tulameen River! Love the quality time spent with my children forming the memories they'll never forget! We love to participate in the parade! We have numerous participation ribbons displayed on our cabin wall! I love to cycle along the Kettle trail. I remember one time some young punks flew past me on their motorcycles and knocked me off my bicycle. Nevertheless, coming to Coalmont has always been an enjoyable time! I LOVE THE SIMILKAMEEN VALLEY! <3
