My g-grandfather Chaim Luzer KOPPEL >from Stebnik
worked in the petroleum industry when my grandfather
was growing up in Drohobycz. Chaim didn't own any
wells or anything else. He was a poor man. He worked
either in or near Boryslav, I believe as a laborer
building dereks. Chaim had to live most of the time in
Boryslav while his family was in Drohobycz. I know my
grandfather was working with his father doing that
after his WWI military service. Chaim was injured by
some machinery, wouldn't go to a doctor, and died in
1921 >from the infected injury.
