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 July-August
For A Friend
I am seeking information on Shirley A. White. I went to school
with her at Buckhorn High School in Perry County.
The last time I saw her was in Winchester, Clark County, Kentucky.

Celebrate 86 Years
My mother, Marie Haddix, will be 86 years young on August 22,
2006. I would appreciate any cards Kentucky Explorer readers
could send to her. She and my father lived many years in Breathitt
and Perry counties. She returns when possible to the old homeplace
to lay flowers on my father's grave.
Mother resides at 1000 Sparta Street, McMinnville, TN 37110.

I collect old paper items such as soldier's letters, military
documents, maps, pictures, prints, posters, flyers (advertising
events), books, old political posters, and illustrated sheet
If any reader wants to send old material made of paper, it would
be greatly appreciated.

I would like to buy some tobacco worm bean seeds. I always purchased
the seed at Hardy Bros. Store in Irvine, Estill County, Kentucky,
but the store isn't in business anymore. People in the county
raised these beans and brought the seed to the store to sell.
I have asked at several stores, but the seed is not available.
I would like to have about a pint of these seeds, if anyone has
any for sale.
