Here are a few queries from

May 2008


Info. Wanted On
Former Classmates
Dear Editor:

I would like to know where Aileen Stacy, Bobby Joyce Rogers, and Maxine Roberts are living now.
I graduated with them from M. C. Napier High School in 1953.
Any help would be appreciated.

Info. And Photos Wanted;
Durbin School Reunion Set

Dear Editor:
I am seeking information on the Clarence Tipton children who once lived at Pryse, Estill County, Kentucky.
A reunion is being planned this summer for the old Durbin School in Estill County. Past students, teachers, and any relatives who are interested in attending are urged to contact me.
Also, I would like copies of group pictures of students of the Beattyville Grade School from 1935 to 1945. I will gladly pay any expense.

Who Offered
Burning Bush Seeds

Dear Editor:
I enjoy The Kentucky Explorer so much. The March 2008 issue arrived one day before the big ice storm. I enjoyed reading each page.
I would like to ask the person who was offering old-time "burning bush" seeds in the March issue to please contact me.
I let someone have my magazine, and I failed to write down the address.
