Early Issues Of Explorer Wanted; Looking For Family Info.
Dear Editor:
I am interested in obtaining the early issues of The Kentucky Explorer beginning in 1986.
I am looking for information on the Cox, Prince, and Holland/Hollan/Hollon families. They lived in Graves County, Kentucky, in the Sand Hill, Clear Springs, and Panther Creek areas.
Any help would be appreciated.

Recipes And Words
To Song Wanted

Dear Editor:
Does any reader have a recipe for the old-fashioned way to make pork sausage using sage and black pepper?
Also, I'd like to know how to make the vinegar dressing for coleslaw.
Does anyone have the words to the song "You Can't Serve God and Mammon?"
