" 45 With operators apparently willing to cooperate with the union, Green's major area of concern was forcing the rank-and-file to abide by all the rules of the joint agreements. These contracts covered not only wage scales, but every aspect of mine work, such as loading coal, weighing procedures, and grievance policies. If miners expected operators to carry out their part of the bargain, Green, as chief labor negotiator, had to force miners to live up to their side.
Joseph did not move with them. He found a new mining job in neighboring Tuscarawas county, and by 1880 he was married with two children of his own. 9 Again, the absence of written records leaves us with little concrete knowledge of William Green's early years. Later in life he recalled a happy childhood. Although he remembered the Hill as a "drab mining village," he carried fond memories of his "proud" father and "loving'' mother. He recalled that his father was tall, thin, quiet, sported long white hair and a beard and that, with respect to his circumstances, he provided well for his family.
The Morgan Run Company owned most of the Hill, and thus could charge high rents for these shacks and force workers to buy necessities, such as food and mining supplies, at the company store for exorbitant prices. With the mines offering the only chance of employment and with few social diversions, it was no wonder that Hugh Green hoped for a better life for his children. Nevertheless, those miners who settled on the Hill were perhaps more fortunate than most, for while few were able to escape the pits and become farmers, they were able to build a stable community.
