JIM: Guess is that Ms. Lunn was Sara Rey (Sallie) Marcum

Wherein Jim follows up on a question weighing heavy on a number of readers of his earlier piece, Ms. Lunn critiques the courtroom (and the inhabitants therein), 1906, that question being: Who was Ms. Lunn? He says that even after consultation with fellow historian Mike Watson, he still isn't totally sure, but wants to postulate that the writer was Sara Rey (Sallie) Marcum


Sadly, the identity of "Ms. Lunn" has been lost in the mists of time, but were I given fifty cents and a fifth of Old Tonguewagger and asked my opinion, I'd probably blurt out the name Sara Rey "Sallie" Marcum (1881-1954), the daughter of Marshall "M.H." and Martha (McKinley) Marcum. Her father ran the Conover (later known as the Miller) Hotel in the opening days of the 20th century and after his passing in 1904, her mother ran it for a while before opening a boarding house on Burkesville Street. In 1906, J.S. Stapp -- there's a guy I should write about -- hired Sallie to work as a bookkeeper for his mill and for the Spectator, which he owned at the time. At some point, she also worked as editor of the Spectator (that tidbit compliments of my Brother Cousin Mike.)

From Campbellsville University

For the Sparks siblings who grew up in southern Adair County, KY, education was a given. Their grandfather Sanford Hurt, a superintendent of public instruction, their mother Christine and father James E. Sparks brooked no discussion on the matter of their graduating from Breeding Elementary, going right through Adair County High School and straight to college. So the son whose name marks the fifth-generation of men with the initials J. E. Sparks, Joseph E. (Joe) Sparks, did just that, graduating from Campbellsville College in the same year as his sister Gayle and brother Willard - 1966.

Griders and Cabbells are descendants of historic Guy family

E H Lepiarczyk writes:
I read with interest the article about the Guy church and the Providence church in Adair County. My uncle's wife, Mrs. Walter Edwin Grider, and my third cousin, Miss Janet Gail Cabbell, are both descendants of the historic Benjamin Hickman Guy family.

Benjamin died ca. 1835. Rebecca A. Guy Reynolds (1827-1900), Benjamin's daughter, is the ancestor of Mrs. Grider and Miss Cabbell. Mrs. Grider and Miss Cabbell are descendants of Rebecca's son, George Green Reynolds (1853-1926), who was the patriarch of a prominent Ozark community family. The Guy Family lineage continues in Adair County today although the name is now extinct among Adair County citizenry. Best Regards, - E. H. Lepiarczyk

Guy church was a log structure built in the early 1800s on Damrons Creek, about two miles or so from Pellyton. The name was derived from the Guy family that lived in that vicinity and were instrumental in the erection of the building.' - MIKE WATSON
