I told my friend that everyone should have a patch of poke because

May God bless each and every one who prepares the magazine.

Charles William Pennington
Some time ago a story written by Daisy Pennington was published
in The Kentucky Explorer. It was a story about Charles William
Pennington of Harlan County, Kentucky. Someone was nice enough
to send me a copy of this story; however, the sad part is that

has a copy of this story.
