Letters To The Editor

Each month, The Kentucky Explorer magazine receives literally scores of letters from our faithful readers. Whenever possible, we try to publish as many of them as possible in the 12 pages we have set aside for "Letters to the Editor."

Here are actual letters from February 2006

Lawson Family
Heritage Program

Dear Editor:
The Lawson Family Heritage Program has just found documentation from the United Kingdom of our ancestor William Lawson (1731) of Scotland. Beginning with is son, Travis, in 1810, many of his descendants settled in Kentucky, and our program now includes over 90 family members who are researching our family history.
For updates on our program visit: http:www.carl.lawson.net/Pages/genealogy.html and you will find our newsletters. If you do not have access to the Internet, please write to me.

Many Memories Shared
Dear Editor:
The Kentucky Explorer brings so much joy to so many. I would not want to miss a single issue.
We received many responses by email and many phone calls when Don submitted photos of his athletic teams to the magazine.
Just today we received three responses on the Jenkins basketball team. Many memories have been shared between Don and the athletes of yesteryear.
In August 2005 he had a reunion with Lloyd High School baseball team that he coached some 40 years ago.
Thanks to The Kentucky Explorer staff for bringing joy into our lives.

Massacre At Pine Ridge
Info. Wanted
Dear Editor:
Thanks so much for The Kentucky Explorer.
I would like to know more about Old Landing in Lee County, Kentucky.
Also, I would like some information on the family that was massacred at Pine Ridge Road between Indian Old Fields around Goff's Corner and Trapp. The murder was never solved.
