Inscription. In the 1860s, a coal field east of San Antonio was occasionally mined by soldiers for heating fuel and to fire their blacksmith ovens. In 1883, the Santa Fe railroad built a bridge across the Rio Grande at San Antonio and laid track to the new coal mining town of Carthage. The settlements of Farley and Tokay sprang up around the nearby lime kilns and coal mines.
