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
The Clines And Hatfields
I have been a subscriber of The Kentucky Explorer for many years.
My ancestor was Peter Cline, who lived on Peter Creek near the
Tug River. Perry Cline was Peter's grandson.
Perry Cline was involved in a lawsuit with Ance Hatfield over

I hope to relocate an old poem which I think was called "Contentment."
It extolled a mother hen who was delighted by a nestful of chicks.
The next time she set her eggs, she was equally delighted to
produce only one chick. She could devote all her love to one
child. Later she reset her nest and sat and sat, but no chicks
hatched. She finally gave up sitting, remarking, "Children
are such a bore!"

Cheesecake Recipe Wanted
I'm am searching for a certain cheesecake recipe my mother once
made. Mother has been gone since 1952. The family has put cheesecake
recipes together, but no one can duplicate Mother's recipe. Mother
used cottage cheese, lemon juice, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and I
can't recall what else. The mixture was poured into a graham
cracker crust in a springform pan.
If any reader makes a cheesecake similar to this, I would really
like to have the recipe.
