Gibson Cemetery
At Raven, Kentucky

Dear Editor:
I enjoy reading The Kentucky Explorer and have been a subscriber for years. I grew up in Knott County, Kentucky.
I have found the Gibson Cemetery, located on Route 899 at Raven in Knott County to be in grave need of maintenance.
If anyone has family or friends buried at this cemetery, please contact me.

Wanted: Photos Of Locust Hill
And Woodrow, Kentucky

Dear Editor:
I was born in Breckinridge County, Kentucky.
I am looking for any photos of Locust Hill and Woodrow, Kentucky. Both of these little communities, where I spent many happy days as a child, are now gone.
I would appreciate any photos anyone might have of either place.
Locust Hill was located about three miles from Woodrow.

History Items Needed
Dear Editor:
We are home schooling, and thank goodness for The Kentucky Explorer. We can visit a Kentucky location and travel back in time without ever leaving the kitchen table study area.
We are in need of history books, maps, science project ideas, etc. We will take all the help we can get. Right now there are eight of us and one is on the way. We have three girls and five boys ages 3 to 15. This is our first full year, and we could use advice.
