Letters To The Editor

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 March 2007


Info. Wanted On Cave
Springs Christian Church

Dear Editor:
I am seeking information on the Cave Springs Christian Church on Cave Springs Road in McKee, Jackson County, Kentucky, which used to be Clover Bottom. My dad and granddad both pastored the little country church, which is told to be the oldest Christian church or maybe the oldest church this side of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I have been told that it was established in the early 1800s, maybe 1809. It is still a beautiful church. We have services each Sunday and special singings on the fourth Saturday of each month. This church is a historical site and I want to record it as such, if I can gather enough information.
Any help would be appreciated.

Old Army Buddies
Dear Editor:
I would like to ask readers for help in finding old Army buddies who were at Camp Pickett, Virginia, and members of the 43rd Infantry Division in 1951 through 1953.
Following are their 1951 addresses:
Marvin Grimes, West Clarkville, Kentucky; J. B. Messer, Walker, Kentucky; and Donald Sandifer, Middles-boro, Kentucky.
