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 March 2007

Seeds Wanted;
Doolin School Reunion
Dear Editor:
I would like to thank readers for writing and sending seeds to replace what I lost. Special thanks to Billy Boyd for the stories and seeds.
It's always good to hear from my ancestors in Kentucky, the Esteps and Alexanders.
I am still looking for the following seeds: Cow pumpkin pie, banana muskmelon, long-handled gourd, and Silver Queen sweet corn.
I have big white and green cushaw seeds and greasy grit bean seeds to share.
I am interested in a cane mill molasses pan, if anyone has one I can afford.
Also, I would like to announce the Doolin School Reunion will be held in Somerset, Kentucky, the last weekend in October 2008 (every other year) at the R. E. M. C. Building on 1247 N.

Still Searching For
Friends And Family
Dear Editor:
I would like to thank The Kentucky Explorer for printing my request for lost friends and family. The day after I received the magazine I got a call from James Bretz.
I am still looking for Viola Highlander Martin. I was told she was somewhere around Lexington or Frankfort. Maybe readers can help me find her.
The magazine has done so much to help. Keep up the good work.
