"Grandpa Sam's second wife, Emma Heinrich, was a real witch. She was so mean my mom [Lulu] would never say her name again. My mom lived with Melissa [her grandmother] and she would come back to visit Sam her father for a month or so. Emma used to beat and abuse her and Alice something terrible, and say stuff like, "If you ever tell, I'll kill you." She would act all nice around Sam, and then when he went off to work, she would start in on my mother and Alice. I don't know about Martin--he pretty much stayed with Uncle Claud. Anyway, Sam came home one day and caught her at it. We don't know if somebody told him or he just came home early. The story from Uncle Claude is that he then took her and threw her into the road, and all her clothes with her, and told her to never come back. After that they were divorced.
My mom told a story about one special occasion, when the owners of the mines granted all relatives of the miners permission to come down into the mines and see where and what the miners did. They also brought picnic baskets and they all rode the mining cars underground from one town to another. Mom and Alice went with their dad Sam, although Alice who was always timid, did not want to go. Mom persuaded her. This was on a Sunday when no work was in progress. Otherwise only employees were allowed in the mines."
