I remember Treeton, how could I forget the people and the events that took place. There where some great times and great people, then the strike happened and everything changed over night. I have read through the list of names and recall some of them and their stories..

 

I will go with a story, Tommy Maskery (My father) was a Deputy he woould walk through the pit tapping his stick on the rails as he went. I asked him one day, "why do you do that", he said "because the noise travels down the rails and the button lads know I am coming and wake up anyone thats sleeping"

 

 

He was a grand old man and I miss him and his stories.
