Hazard Ky, Perry - Thursday, June 29, 2000

I commend the creators of this website. My father always wanted to take us kids back to Hazard to see where he was born. He never got to do it. Seeing these photos of the old days allows me to share his memories, now that he is gone. I'm looking for any information on my family that I can find. My grandmother was Martha Holland. She was born in 1880 and married a man name Donovan and had a daughter, Laura. Later she married John Napier and had the following children: Lucy, Maudie, Bige, John, Eddie, and Saline (my dad). My father was born in 1913. His mom moved all the kids to Tahlequah sometime during WWI. I would really love to know my family's history. Please send me an e-mail to fill in the blanks. Thanks,

I am writing for my mother Bertie Greer Strobel who was born in Hazard in September 1921. Her parents were H. E. Greer And Mary Lee Harned Greer. They lived at 342 Lyttle Blvd. The house is still there and her brother and sister-in-law live there. I am trying to locate anyone who lived on Lyttle Blvd and might remember me or my Mom's family especially a boy who lived down the street on the right below the church. I used to play with him when I went to visit my grandparents. Also my Mother would love to here from anyone who remembers her or would love to communicate with those of you that new her parents. She does not have a computer so send any info to me her son at the address given. Good job on the web site it is really neat and enjoyable to see the history.

Ok... throughout my 16 years that I have lived in Hazard, I have seen many great musicians. I have been in a lot of places and seen many shows, concerts, and so forth. I think that musicians in the Hazard area have many talents and don't get any recognition. I know many of them. They have seen it all, yet, they should be the ones doing it not seeing it. Any way, a local band here in Hazard named "Loose Change" has that talent. They have one of the best guitarist in the area and he is only 17 (JWP). And have many other fantastic musicians besides him. These local bands need support to get out of Hazard and make it. Hazard is a great town, yet it is rare that I see bands get out of here on their own. Please support Loose Change, and help them out, they play and put on great shows. They have the talent and the drive to make it. They are all young and have the talent to move on. If anyone has any comments, e-mail one of my best friends who is in the band at He will be thrilled to hear comments. Thank you for reading.

The wonderful things on this site never cease to amaze me. It is so nice to be able to see a little piece of home with just the click of a mouse. For those of us that are gone from Hazard, living in the "flat lands" in particular, it is very refreshing to be able to see the mountains again on the computer screen, whenever we get a bit homesick. I'll probably never live in Hazard again, but I do miss it sometimes. Best wishes to everyone. Washington DC, here I come!

Hi Hazard. I have lived in a lot of places but my dad always came back to Hazard. Earshel Hurt is his name. I lost him sometime ago. He always said Hazard was home. We always came back. I lived up Leatherwood for my childhood, married Wayne Spurgeon and moved to hazard, then Avawam which is just 15min from hazard. We have lived here for the last 14yr.There is no other place I would wont to live. When God made Hazard,he put a piece of heaven in so we could have her beauty.I was born in Hazard ,and if its Gods will dye here also.

It's been said that you can never go back, but this website has proven memories are not dead.....and you CAN go back. A lot of school friends have gone on, but their memories still linger on. The high school on Baker Hill will always bring back memories of the 10 minute breaks going into the cafeteria. Do you remember? Would love to hear from friends/family, please send to my son's email address and he will forward your message on to me.

My name is Martha Hall Quigley. I've been at the Bobby Davis Museum and Park since its beginning in 1983. Many people who grew up in Hazard and vicinity know of the Park. Since the beginning of the Museum thousands of people have visited, many of them were coming home for a visit. Artifacts, photographs, and documents have been donated that represent the history of Hazard and Perry County. Around August 15, 2000, a book will be released containing photographs from the Museum collection. It represents the time from 1900 through the early 1980s. I see from all of the entries on this web site many people want to see scenes from their past. This book from the Images of America series by Arcadia Publishing will bring alive many memories. Write Bobby Davis Museum, 234 Walnut St., Hazard KY 41701.

Went to school at Walkertown Elem. and Hazard High School back in the 60's. My family left in 65. It's scary seeing some of these names at this site...ghosts from the past..I would love to hear from some of those ghosts...still think of a lovely voice that I adored from a life time ago (Mary Sue Web) I'm sure the name has changed for such a lovely lady since those Roy Orbinson said (in dreams I walk with you).

Louisville, KY, USA - Friday, June 16, 2000

In 1996 I began writing a series of articles on Perry County Men In WWII in 1998 I published 54 of those stories in the book Perry County Men in WWII Stories From The Heart and excerpt from the book is on the Hazard web site. I'm still interviewing WWII veterans. I think that in the words of Tom Brokaw these men were indeed the Greatest Generation and I would like to have the story of every Perry County veteran who served in WWII and am asking that you former veterans assist me in this effort. With the able assistance of Franklin Turner I am compiling a book on Fourseam Coal Camp that will be completed by this year's Fourseam Reunion. If you have informnation/picutres when you lived in Fourseam. Franklin and I would like to hear from you. Both the WWII stories and the Fourseam books are aimed at giving an accurate and true picture of life in Eastern Kentucky not the distorted and warped version that generally appears on network television and in movies depicting the area. Wasn't that coal truck chase scene in Fire Down Below ridiculous. If Hollywood and the networks would just for once portray the whole and complete story they would be overwhelmed by the response. Pinky send me your family's Fourseam story I've got to have the copy to the publisher no later than July 20. Paul David

Hello Hazard - I guess you could say I represent the Combs family from down there up here in Terre Haute Indiana. I was looking for genealogy and discovered this site and all the pictures. I have heard of Hazard all my life but these are the first pictures I have seen. They are wonderful. It is like finally putting a face with a name. My g-g-g-grandfather was Isaac B Combs. He had a plantation. Does anyone know exactly where it was (or is)? Or what the house looked like? Isaac B's daughter married an O'Hair and they moved to Il mid 1800s. But, clear down to me the family has felt those strong ties to East Ky. This site has made a lot of people happy it looks like.

I was born and raised in Knott county, Kentucky. I attended Cordia High School. I got married to Kenneth Martin in 1985 and then we moved to Winchester, Ky for about 9 months and then moved back to Knott county to have our first child. It was hard to find a job in Perry county so my husband joined the military (United States Air Force). We have been all over the world it seems, but Kentucky will always be called our home. We have been in for over 13 years and we are planning on staying until we retire. I would love to hear from any of my old classmates or anyone. My parents are Floyd and Norma Mullins of Clear Creek (Fisty), Kentucky. We are stationed at the present at Lajes Field Azores, that is in Portugal, it is an island that is 12 miles by 18 miles.

This is an extremely well done web site and I congratulate the individuals that did the work. I have been researching Hazard and Perry County as I believe my father or his relatives were from there. I would love to hear from any Davidson's that live in the vicinity. I am searching for descendants or someone who knows of Maryan Davidson who died in Hazard in 1911 at the age of 65. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

Does anyone know any Muncys that still might live in Hazard or outlying areas or even any Gilberts that might know about my family tree? They were Winnie Muncy and Heywood Gilbert they had lots of kids Frank, Felix, Polly, Dale, Mollie and one other brother. Does anyone know them or any? Jimmy Gilbert was my grandma's Mollie cousin I found that out but I am looking for someone who might be a Gilbert or Muncy that might write back. There is a book at the library in northern Ky that has the history of Hazard and everyone that lived there for years I think until 1950 so if someone is looking for someone you might find the same book at your local library in the history section. Have a great day hello Ida May and Jack.

J. took lots of pictures and mine didn't turn out too well, I was wondering if she would be interested in sharing her negatives? I would appreciate it if she would contact me and let me know. My husband was a band director here at Middlesboro so we hear from Jack Walker occasionally and he had told us about your reunion at Buckhorn. Unfortunately, we didn't get his message until after the event. I would like to have come as a visitor. He said that you all always had a great time.

We met a few weeks back at Buckhorn. The longer we get away from 1960, the harder it is to find folks. I feel like I want to apologize to you for not being able to find you. Are you a nurse? The class hopes to get together again soon. Everytime we come together it is great. Class of 1960 sign on please.

Hello Hazard! My name is Paul Easterling and I'm from Los Angeles. I was born at Bonnyman in 1932 in Calitri Hollow. I went to elementary school at Blue Diamond. My Dad, Ollie Hugh Easterling, was the butcher at the Blue Diamond commissary and worked for L. J. Hammel. Dad later became store manager at Bonnyman in the 40's and also at Leatherwood in the early 60's. My aunt, Pat Mollar, ran a sandwich shop near First Creek High School in the 30's and early 40's. I haven't been back to Hazard since I moved to Los Angeles in 1966. I'm sure that it has changed since I was there.

I have a friend (Mabel Sizemore Jett) who would like to locate two friends (who were sisters) who grew up with her in Hazard in the 1940s. She thinks the older sister, whose name was Beulah Mae Harvey, may be in the Dayton, OH, area, but probably has a different last name now. The younger sister was named Glotta Jewel Harvey. Mabel does not have a computer and is currently in the hospital. If anyone out there can supply any information at all about the Harvey girls, they can send it to me at and I will see that Mabel gets it. Thanks.

At any rate, I'm a 20-year-old college student currently attending Hazard Community College as an English major (soon to pick up a History minor). As always, I'm willing to answer any questions any of you "outsiders" may have about the lay of the land, or what have you. It would be great to hear from anyone I went to elementary school with; I graduated from R.W. Combs in 1994. (I then graduated Perry Central High School in 1998.)

Several old friends who graduated from Hazard High in the 50's are trying to find others. We would like to find information on Bill "Snake" Church, who lived in the Hardburly area. He was a great friend, a member of Hazard Hi band and we would like to know or talk with anyone that knows Snake or his whereabouts. Thanks, Ida Lee and Joann

Hello Hazard, I just found your website and really enjoy it. I was born and raised at Ary my mother is Arminda Hays. My father Clabe Stacy was killed in the coal mines in 1964. They have 16 children, and all but 4 of us still live in Perry or Knott county. I married John Anthony Smith, son of J.D.Smitty Smith and Elizabeth Smith. My husband graduated from M.C.Napier in 1966 and I graduated from Hindman High School the same year.

We moved to Somerset last year and would love to hear from anyone who went to school with either of us. John and Wanda Smith

It was very refreshing to see "home" again on this site. I moved to Lexington approximately nine years ago and have not made it back. I am now married to Mark Sinex and we have made "our" home in Lexington (working on baby no. 1). I always heard you can take the girl out of the mountains, but you can't take the mountains out of the girl. It's true.

SOMERSET KY  - Monday, April 03, 2000

Hello from Ohio. I was born at Indianhead, Ky near Hazard. My grandmother was Nancy Williams and was a midwife who delivered me and 4 of my 6 siblings. It would be interesting to hear from others who were also delivered by her as she traveled all over Perry County. I started school way back when at Tom's Branch School which was a one room school house on Troublesome Creek. Anyone out there with a picture of it? I also went to Robinson School 5th through 8th gr., and MC Napier HS which was named for my cousin Mitchell C. Napier. My dad was Jerry Williams and my Mother is Ola Faye (Napier) Kline. We moved to Ohio in 1963. I would have been a graduate of Napier in 1966, had we stayed there. My Dad died on Sept. 29, 1999. While we were there for his funeral, I heard about this website, and have very much enjoyed visiting it since. Keep up the good work!!

My mother's family is from Hazard.....The Baker family. My maternal grandparents are Thomas Baker and Rose Baker. I had several uncles who ran business in Hazard in the 1940s. My uncle JD Baker ran nightclubs for whites - The Wheel and for Negroes - The Hub. My grandparents owned the hotel shown in the flood picture of 1927, but it was in the 1940s and was under another name then. If anyone out there knew my mother Rosalie Baker or her sister Maureen Baker or brothers JD and Kenneth Baker please contact me. My mother is always looking for more family history to add in her book she has been writing. She would love to hear from you. Thanks

I am looking for a former childhood friend of mine from a long time ago. Her name was Angela Michelle Couch. I understand that my sister vicki has heard from angie's mother (Mattie i think). ... and i hope that someone can give me some info on her or know anything about her. We were best friends in grade school at A.B. Combs......we had the same teachers and competed as kids. (she was always just a little bit better at everything then i was !)I moved to Michigan after the fourth grade and we kept in touch for a little while....but have lost touch over the years. If anyone remembers me or knows of her ....please email me and let me know. I think of her often and am curious to see how her life turned out.

Hi, I have been looking through this web site for a few weeks now. I used to visit Hazard every summer with my parents. Almost all my family is from there. My Mom is Rose Young (Harvey). My Dad is Cecil Young. They were both born in the Hazard area. The mountains there are beautiful! I have wonderful memories of visiting my Grandparents there. My Mom's parents were Stella and Ira Harvey. My Dad's parents were Frank and Molta Young. My Grandpa Young died when I was very young,so I don't remember him. My Grandma Harvey would cook the best meals when we visited. She was so special to me. Some days when the weather is just right, it's early morning, the birds are singing, the dew is on the grass, and I smell the sweet smell of bacon, my Grandma Harvey comes to mind. I know I have relatives in Hazard. It is such a shame to lose touch with all of them. I would love to hear from some of them. I would love to know more history about my family there.This site is great. Thanks to all the people who put so much into it.
