Each month, The Kentucky
Explorer magazine receives literally scores of letters from
our faithful readers. Whenever possible, we try to publish as
many of them as possible in the 12 pages we have set aside for
"Letters to the Editor."
Here are actual letters from September
Bailey And Cox Family
I wish to thank the reader who has twice sent me information,
upon request, regarding the Bailey and Cox families. The response
was anonymous, and I wanted the reader to know that I really
appreciated the information.

Explorer Staff Like Family
I think of the staff of The Kentucky Explorer as my Kentucky
family. I'm a native of South Louisville.
Through "our" magazine I have friends all over the
I would like to see more information on the Millville area, located
near Frankfort, Kentucky. The old distilleries looked scary.

Will Never Forget
My Kentucky Home
I still read and thoroughly enjoy The Kentucky Explorer.
I turned 89 on June 22, 2002. I had a triple bypass and am a
diabetic, but I still can do things on my own, thanks to our
I read about cane-bottom chairs in a recent issue of The Explorer.
My dad used hickory bark, too. We also had a bench made of pine.
There were 14 of us in the family.
I have a 94-year-old brother, Horace Harrod, who lives at Crest-wood,
Oldham County, Kentucky, and a sister, Helen, who lives in Shelbyville,
Shelby County, Kentucky.
I am in the Sunshine State enjoying life at its fullest. I will
never forget my old Kentucky home.
Keep up the good work.

I would appreciate hearing from readers if they have memories
of meeting or attending performances by Cynthia May Carter who
performed as "Cousin Emmy." She was quite popular in
the 1930s and 1940s and appeared in two movies, Swing in the
Saddle and The Second Greatest Sex.
