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 February 2006



Searching For Friend
Dear Editor:
I am searching for Regina Yvette Morris, who was born July 20, 1971. She was last known to be in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky.
Any information would be appreciated.

Wants To Know Location Of
Old Mill On Elkhorn Creek

Dear Editor:
The hamlet of South Elkhorn, together with the old mill on Elkhorn Creek, Woodford County, described in The Kentucky Explorer, September 2005 issue, pages 10 and 11, seem to have disappeared from history.
My daughter, who lives on South Elkhorn Creek, is attempting to locate exactly where the old mill and hamlet of South Elkhorn existed. Local historians she contacted were unable to help her.
My daughter and I hope Explorer readers will be familiar with the location. We note the many questions answered by the magazine's readers and ask anyone who may have information to assist us.
Thanks to The Kentucky Explorer staff for the great compilation of Kentucky history. I read each and every issue from cover-to-cover.
