I hope you're able to find someone, but you probably won't find anyone carrying decent heating bituminous coal in that area- there's little market for it with anthracite being so close. If you do find some, it will likely be "blacksmith" coal which is a high cokebutton bituminous and will be horrible to burn in a hand-fired stove such as your mark II. Forum member Dungeonmaster is somewhere over in that area, he usually keeps quite a bit on hand, perhaps he'll let you try some...
