The terrain and the people of Kentucky are so varied, those of us who grew up here never have the same stories to tell. Wonder of wonders, though, I recently met a gentleman who grew up only a handful of miles from where I was born. We were probably there at the same time, walking those same dusty roads, and climbing the very same mountains. Here's a story from our All Across Kentucky Cubit, written by my friend Dave. Please leave a comment for him on the threads that follow, and you are welcome to visit our Cubit.

My family name is Cornett. My great grand parents, grandparents, and father were all from Blackey. My family cemetery is in Blackey. I visit every June and have fond memories of my childhood visits there.

It's nice to hear from you, wlfwmn!

I grew up in Letcher County as well. This site has not been active in quite awhile and I don't know if Dave is still around or not but I haven't heard from him in a long time. If he checks the site, I'm sure he will answer you.

In the meantime, thanks for commenting. I knew a lot of Cornetts when I lived there and I have a brother there as well; he probably knows more than I do. I left in 1964 after college and have lived in Western Kentucky since. But I too go back often.
