Whitesburg KY


Old-time singing will be held at Frog Pond

My sympathy to the family of Jordan Sexton of Whitesburg. He died in a motorcycle accident on May 20. A lot of his family live on Elk Creek. Jordan was 20.

Danny and Von Hall of Blackey, left May 19 for a vacation. They spent the night in Tennessee then went on to Arkansas. They were going to the Ozarks.

My cousin, Eric Back, had to be taken to Lexington May 15. He had such a bad infection they had to clean his blood three times. They also found a blood clot in his leg so they had to give him blood thinners for that.

Dorse and Brandie Back went down to see him and they ran into Lee Hatton’s daughter, Rhonda. She said Lee was in because he had cancer and was not doing well.

Eric is now back at the nursing home. His oldest daughter, Tiffany, graduated from the eighth grade last week. They both were disappointed Eric couldn’t be there.

My sympathy to the family of Mabel Bates Back of Lexington, formerly of Blackey. She died May 20. Mabel was 91 and was married to the late Clyde Back.
