Letcher Countians meet in Louisville


It’s April already. Why is time moving so fast?

Seems like the older I get the faster time goes. I still think I’m young. Clester says he is still young so I can be young too.

I had a nice phone call from Dr. Bill Adams of Louisville. He still loves Letcher County and we love what he shares about our county. He has so much information on our folks and I love talking to him.

His dad was a collector as is Dr. Billy. He had gone to the library near his home and met a very nice man who was also a Letcher Countian, Brian Reynolds. He said they were both from Mayking. I forgot to ask him who Brian’s family are.

Hello to both of them.

Clester and I have had a lot of visitors this week, his brother George and nephew Chris Isaacs, my brothers Coolie and Edsel, my sister Linda Lou, Carol, Kaylee, Greg, Sharon and Rylee. Rylee and Kaylee played so much and really enjoyed spending time together.

A friend of Sharon’s sent her dad a delicious chocolate pie. He did allow us to have a small slice and it was good.

The Whitesburg Lions Club had their Easter egg hunt at Fishpond Lake and according to Gabe Gilliam it was a great success. He bragged on Pam’s cooking and said Wendell had a big yard.

A baby shower was given for Larry Brock and Lindsay Thornsberry, who are expecting their son, Jaxon Dean Brock, next month. That baby will be the best dressed little boy.

Get well wishes to Joyce Ann Sergent and Geneva Akemon. I love both of these ladies.

I want to tell you about a mystery we have and ask for your help. There is a tombstone near the old Jordan Garage in Jenkins. The name on the marker is Sam H. Adams; he died in 1929. Donna Boggs says the stone may have been there for 40 years. Why is the stone beside the road? Who are his family? If anyone can tell us anything about this man, please call me at 855-7338. I love a mystery but also like to solve them. This is Jenkins 100th year and we would like to have this information before the celebration begins.

The Historical Society would like to have you join this year and to help us preserve the history of our county and its people. Think about what we can do if we all work together.

I am so proud of our people and how the county has grown and I thank God I have been able to call it home for most of my life.

God bless.
