???????Genealogical and family history of the Wyoming and Lackawanna Valleys, Pennsylvania (Volume 2), Horace Edwin Hayden: John Price was born in England, October 14, 1846. He was reared, educated and married in his native land, emigrating from thence in 1893, and locating at Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, where he has since resided. He at once became an employe of the Susquehanna Coal Company, and in 1899 was appointed check docking boss of shaft No. 5. a position he held for several years in England. The duty of this office is to see that the miners receive justice at the hands of the docking boss, and because of his thorough knowledge of mining, and his experience and familiarity with the production of coal in its various phases he was chosen for the position, which was created in the company in 1899. One of the grievances of the miners in the strike of that year was the excessive docking or shrink- age in their production of coal. In the adjustment of that strike a check docking boss was to be employed to see that each car as it goes to the breaker is fairly examined and the miners justly dealt with by the docking boss. During his incumbency of this .office, Mr. Price has given entire satisfaction to both the company and the miners. He is a consistent member of the Primitive Methodist Church. In politics he is a stanch Republican. On January 17, 1883, Mr. Price was married to Miss Sarah Robinson, a native of England, and they are the parents of six children : Elizabeth, born 1884, the wife of Wilson Bogart, of Nanticoke ; Mary, born 1885, the wife of Thomas Chamberlain, of Nanticoke ; Margaret, born 1890; James, born 1895, and Robert Dewey, born 1898. [Don't know connection of this family, if any.]
