Tom Crane wrote in the commentary about his book Green Is The Valley, Blue Are The Hills free to read at http://fethard.com/crane/, "My great-uncle, Michael Crane, is buried in the Miners Plot in Virden Cemetery. Very few people know that there is a Miners Plot (Tom provided the map) in the cemetery as it is unmarked. There are 12 graves assigned to the UMWA and 4 of them are occupied. Also, during the course of my book I also pay tribute to Mother Jones who is buried in Mt. Olive Cemetery. When Michael was killed in 1901, mention was made in the Virden Newspaper."
