The Fairmont Coal Company was one of the heavy hitters at the turn of the 19th to 20th centuries. They made several key purchases in the coal fields around Fairmont, WV, and eventually gained control of the Consolidated Coal Company from the B&O. More detail can be found on this website. My apologies for the political nature of any links or ads on this site but it does have a very nice summary of the Fairmont Coal Company.
