I read in the May 2009 issue of The Kentucky Explorer where the
King family or King Enterprise owned the blasting powder mine
and/or manufacturing company on the river in Wurtland, Greenup
County, Kentucky, in the 1920s. I'm wondering what other enterprises
were owned by King.
I strip mined for a small contractor who was doing a job for
what I believed was King Company. There was a Pentecostal preacher
who said he was head man and owned part of the King Recording
Studio in Cincinnati, Ohio. He offered me a chance to come to
Cincinnati and record anything I wanted, ca. 1970. It was the
time of the coal strike over at Laurel River.
Any information would be appreciated.
