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
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.

and you will find our newsletters. If you do not have access
to the Internet, please write to me.

Many Memories Shared
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
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

Massacre At Pine Ridge
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.
