Feedback: Burton Ridge is Adair County Beacon Hill
A Grand Proposal: the posting of 'Burton Ridge' signs on KY 206 by the Adair County government
To the editor
Anyone who is an Adair Countian knows that the heart of Burton Ridge is along Road 206. A cousin's wife, who seemed very authoritative about the matter, said that Burton Ridge began just beyond Garlin going up 206 from Columbia. Burton Ridge probably ends before arriving at Neatsville. It would be nice for the Adair County government to place ''Burton Ridge' signs along Road 206.
I am a proud one-quarter Burton! My grandmother, Effie Burton Grider (1896-1987), always lived near the proximity of Burton Ridge. My mother has always said that Mother Grider never wanted to live too far away from Burton Ridge.
My grandmother was born at McGaha; lived most of her life at Garlin; and died in Columbia.
Note: E.H. Lepiarczyk has written, but not yet published, what is perhaps the most in-depth work on the Burton family of Adair County which has ever been attempted. -ED
