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 December 2006/January 2007




Lyrics And Gourd Seeds Wanted
Dear Editor:
I would like to have the lyrics to the song The Little Girl and the Dreadful Snake.

Knott County Native
Dear Editor:
Through The Kentucky Explorer I get to visit home every month and see new family and friends.
I was born and reared in Knott County, Kentucky. My parents were Leslie and Sarah Oliver. I have two brothers in Houston, Texas; a brother in Lexington, Kentucky; and a sister in Tennessee.

Cecil Family Photo
Dear Editor:
I have a photo I would be happy to give to any of the family of a Miss Bertha Cecil of Mize, Morgan County, Kentucky. This photo looks to have been taken in the very early 1900s and was included in some old photos which belonged to my grandmother.
