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
Wants Info. On Union Oil
And Refining Company
I found in some old papers of my late grandfather, Jackson A.
Begley, where he had bought some shares of Capital Stock with
the Union Oil and Refining Company, dated August 1901.
At this time he resided at Dwale, Floyd County, Kentucky.
I would like to hear from any Explorer readers who know anything
about this company.
I am a recent subscriber, and enjoy the magazine very much.

Info. Wanted On The Fey
In Jefferson County, Kentucky
I am looking for anyone with information about the Fey Cemetery
located in what is now Windsor Lake Subdivision off Arnoldtown
Road. It is located at the corner of Windsor Lake Parkway and
Regal Pine Court in Jefferson County, Kentucky.
I understand that a gentleman some years ago wrote down all the
names and dates from the stones. I have been working very hard
to locate all the people who are buried there. The earliest known
date of burial there is 1856 and the latest is 1918.
I would like to find the gentleman who wrote down all this information
or hear from anyone who may have some information on those buried
there. Some of those who are buried there are my ancestors and
other family members.
Any help will be appreciated.

I am trying to obtain any information I can get on a shootout
When I was eight years old this tragedy took place at Hope, Montgomery
County, Kentucky, between my uncle, James Baxter, and his brother-in-law,
Cleve Reffitt. They were arguing and shot each other to death
some time in June 1932.
If anyone has any information, feel free to contact me.
