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
My grandmother, Drusilla "Dutch" White, had an old
cabinet-style Victrola, which wound up on one side. She lived
at Chavies, Perry County, Kentucky, at the time she "broke
up housekeeping." I do not know what happened to the old
Victrola. I would really like to have it, or one similar to it.
I will pay a fair price.

Old Photos Found
Recently I found a cigar box containing photos of family members
that were taken from 1905 to present.
Some of the names on the photos are Elizabeth and Rubie Lee Parker,
John and Willie Parker, Speelman, John Parker and Jessie Blanton,
Grandpa Parker and Nannie Lee, Anut Eva Cobb and Jr. Cobb, Aunt
Mayme Nibbick, Ruby Wheeler, School Days 1956-57 at St. Agatha,
Ms. Wheeler, Clay Warner and Ruby Parker, Grandma and Grandpa
Raper, and Little League Football Schedule 1982.
Also, there is a newspaper clipping of the funeral service for
Oda Nelson Baxter, age 14.
There are many other photos that are not identified.
I am hoping readers will recognize some of the names and would
like to have these photos.

I am interesting in acquiring a book titled Genealogy of Everett
Wayne Miller and His Descendants. The author is Everett Wayne
Miller. I think it was published between 1937-1953.
I would appreciate any help from Kentucky Explorer readers.
