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
Iris Roots Wanted
I collect Iris roots of any kind. If anyone has any that they
would part with, I would really like to have them.
I will pay the postage.

I would like to thank readers of The Kentucky Explorer who responded
to my request for the words to "Charley's Picture"
by Porter Wagoner.

Of Old Depot At Campton
Each month I enjoy the stories and the family-shared photos and
memories in The Kentucky Explorer.
I am interested in any photos of the old depot in Campton, Wolfe
I would be happy to pay any expenses involved.

Tin-Type Photos Wanted
I am putting together a collage of tin-type photos.
Several friends have given me some tin-type photos of their unknown
ancestors, and along with my photos, I have a good start.
If any Kentucky Explorer readers have any of this type of photos,
which they do not want, I would like to add them to my project.
I will acknowledge all donations.
