I have been a subscriber to The Kentucky Explorer for quite a
few years and really enjoy it. When I was growing up my mother,
Della Hurt, used to sing different songs. One of the songs was
called "Leapfrog John." I remember only some of the

I've been trying to do some research on the little town of Mayslick
(Mason County), Kentucky. I would like any information or photos
on any businesses that were in the town in the 1800s and early
1900s. There was a fire that almost wiped out the town, but I'm
not sure of the date.
I have an antique shop in one of three row houses and was told
that there was a fourth that had burned. There was also a large
hotel with a spa that burned.
I would like any information on the hotel spas in Mason County,
Fleming County, and the Blue Licks area of Robertson County.
All of the older folks in the area of Mayslick passed away before
I could talk with them. Mayslick is the second oldest town in
the county next to Maysville or Limestone, as it was called in
the late 1700s.
Also, I'm interested in some of the early families in Mayslick
and Mt. Olivet (Robertson County). My maternal relatives were
Shepherd and Henderson from Robertson County, and my paternal
relatives were Courtney and Cord from Fleming County.
I'm looking forward to responses.
