What Our Patrons Have to Say...

How do I get the information about the Bunch family from The Knox Countian? Bunch is a family name of mine and lived in Knox Co. a long time ago. Thank You. joanncasner@yahoo.com

My great grandfather was Tom Martin of Knox Co. Ky. His father was George W. Martin who married Mary Payne in 1866 and on Tom Martin's death certificate is a John Martin as informant who died in 1956' my grandfather died in 1951, I believe these two were brothers. I found Geo. W. Martin and John D. Martin buried in King Cemetery in Crab Orchard, Ky. and John on my grandfathers death certificate gave residence as Crab Orchard Ky. Could this very well be my great grandfathers family, just trying to verify this information. Thank you so much Larry E. Lawson

I appreciate your efforts by put the Knox County Kentucky Kinfolk Newsletters online. All I seem to see is the Table of contents. Do we have to purchase the Newsletters or are you planning on placing the rest of the Newsletter pages online?
Thanks and by the way, you all are Great!!

Thank you for your coverage and story on Ketchen School. I found two small discrepancies.
The two room school housed graded 1-4 in the old building and grade 5-8 in the newer building. The last teachers that taught there were A.J. Senters and Herman Hopper (my father). They taught there until G.R. Hampton was opened.
