Reader Queries

Each month, The Kentucky Explorer magazine receives literally scores of letters from our faithful readers. Among those letters we often find queries, ranging from requests for words to songs and poems to trying to locate former classmates and military buddies of long ago.


Here are a few queries from our May 2001 issue:

Words To "Zion's Hill"

Dear Editor:

I really enjoy your magazine. Thanks to my cousin's wife (and my best friend) for telling me about it.

I would appreciate it if anyone would send me the words to the song Zion's Hill. We heard it for many years at the Moore's Schoolhouse Wesleyan Methodist Church in Jamestown, Kentucky.

Thank you.

Crochet Patterns Wanted

Dear Editor:

I would like to ask your readers' help in finding two crochet patterns. These patterns came from "Annie's Attic" several years ago. The patterns are Potholder Fashions and look like little antique dresses; and Fridgie Frocks.

Also, if any of your kind readers know where I can order crepe paper on the fold, please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it.

I enjoy your wonderful publication. I always look forward to the next issue. Thanks in advance for all responses.

Family Tree Wanted

Dear Editor:

I am looking for family tree information.

My parents were Guy O. Mitcham and Clyda Pearman Mitcham. My father was born in Rosetta, Breckinridge County, Kentucky, a small community close to Irvington. He preached at the Stinnettville Church for several years.

I receive The Kentucky Explorer, but haven't seen a lot about this area where my parents were born.

I attended Irvington High School and would also like to hear from any of my classmates.

Where Is Kenten Butcher Meadow?

Dear Editor:

A very long time ago, I remember a man by the name of Kenten Butcher Meadow who was in Marion, Indiana. He was only 18 years of age. He later went into the service. His folks lived in Mount Sterling, Kentucky.

I would love to hear from him or anyone in his family. Maybe someone out there remembers him.
