Biographical or historical data
A Coal River Navigation Company was incorporated by an act of assembly passed Feb. 17, 1834. Apparently this company did not complete the improvements in the time allotted by law, because a company with the same name and responsibilities was incorporated March 17, 1849. By this act the Virginia Cannel Coal Company may accept this act as part of its act of incorporation. In 1852 the Virginia Cannel Coal Company and the Cannel Coal Company of Coal River were authorized to hold stock in the navigation company. In 1853 an additional $50,000 in stock was authorized. In 1856 an act was passed to increase the capital stock of the company by $100,000. The improvement was completed in 1859. In 1860 the company was authorized to condemn lands flooded by the work of the company.
