Last month, in the spirit of Christmas, we learned about some of the island traditions surrounding this special holiday on Chincoteague Island. If you missed that post, you can read it here. This month, I'm beginning a new series featuring facts and people who discovered and settled what is now southeastern Kentucky.
WILLIAM WHITLEY - KENTUCKY PIONEER
* Have you researched anything about the area where YOU live? Are there any interesting facts or people from history who were pioneers in your area?
* What kind of person do you think you would have been had your birthday been in the 1600's or 1700's instead of the 1900's?
Leave answers to these questions or any comments you might have on this post in the box below. Come back on the 9th of February to learn more about Daniel Boone and his trek across the Cumberland Gap.
