Bon Jellico Families

The Herman Click Family


    Herman Click was born in 1905 in the Prewitt Branch section of Whitley County. After school days Herman left Bon, went to Hazard and worked for Elk Creek Coal Company where he had a serious injury to his hand. Herman worked at Packard two years and at Gatliff one year. But Bon Jellico was home and he came home to marry Edith Manning on September 17th, 1927.

    Herman left Bon in 1937, went to Black Star Coal Company for about two years; he then came to High Splint for about six months and then returned to Black Star where he worked until 1942. By then Herman had mastered the mining business, and he and Eskel Petrey worked the Mt. Morgan Mountain for several years. He worked in and around the coalmines all his life; the last years he worked his own mines.

    Herman was converted and preached the gospel for many years. He and Edith lived for many years on his family farm that his dad bought from Nelse Moore in 1903 on Beck’s Creek Road. Although Herman’s left hand was mutilated in the mines at Hard Burley in Perry County, he played a good game of baseball at first base even with a bad hand.
