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

Searching For Phyllis Martin
I enjoy and appreciate The Kentucky Explorer very much. I can't
wait to get it each month.
I'm searching for Phyllis Martin. She was a friend of my mother
when they were young girls. Phyllis' father, Rev. Albert Martin,
was the minister at Upper Salt Lick Church located in Bath County,
Kentucky. Her mother's name was Susie. The family lived in Powell
County. I think Phyllis may live in Michigan now.
Any information would be appreciated.

Song Lyrics Wanted
If someone has the words to "There's A Leak In This Old
Building," I would appreciate a copy.
The song is by Rev. Claude Ely, and he released it in the 1950s.
