Even though I wasn't alive during the times in when most of these pictures were taken, I'm glad they're on here because they tell me a lot about my home's past.

Helen 09:52:47 11/24/2000

hello.I am Helen. I was married to a Fraley for 19 years. I loved his grandpa, JohnFraley. He raised his 2 sons in Hazard. His wife was Ida Mae (Hightower) Fraley. She had 2 small sons when John married her. He worked in the Blue Diamond Mines. Since he married IdaMae she had 2 sons. James & Clarence.. He raised them as his own when they came to Cincinnati in the 1940's. I was married to a Fraley. My son who is a Fraley, is not really a Fraley by bloodline. Cause his grandpawas just the little boy adoped and raised by the John Fraley (coal miner) who fell in love and married Ida w her two little boys. So John Fraley has died and so has Ida Mae. It was too scandalous back then. I would ask her what was the name of the father of her babies. As an old woman, she acted evasive. ...So I do not know my son's true bloodline on his father's side. His great-granfather was NOT really related to the "son" he raised who later became my "father-in-law" and my son's grandpa. He died recently. I have German-English heritage. My son was so dark at birth. He is handsome (20yrs) and looks almost American-Indian. Some folks ask him if he is Spanish or Italian. Dark eyes and hair... Blue Diamond Mines in Hazard??. Not sure. John Fraley worked there. Ida Mae Hightower had about 3 sisters. There were good church-going people. A comment made by a relative that her babie's father (not married?) was a Mine foreman at Blue Diamond Mine. Was there an "Arp" or "Ard" who workd in Blue Diamond Mines in the 1920's -1930's who may have known John Fraley?. Please comment. I loved him. He kept a garden in his yard till he was in his 80's then died. I wish I knew more about him as a coal miner. I regret I did not ask him more about his past.. He belonged to The Gem & Mineral Society. He collected gems & rocks and polished them. He displayed them in Gem & Mineral shows in Cincinnati. Anyone who knew him or Ida Mae please write. Helen, former daughter-in-law of James Fraley (John's adopted son). Thanks.

Congrates Hazard kentucky. I hear you just got rid of that stiking helment law. We have never had it up here in Delawere or not as long as i have been riding for the last 20 years. Just stumbled across your pics of Hazard looks like a little slice of heaven would love to come visit some time. I have always loved the south and plan to move down there some day. Maybe I'll ride my old '95 Dina Lowride in to that great looking small town of yours. Tell me, are there lots of friendly people down there for this broking down old biker to have a beer and a chat with?

I have family members that live in Hazard and haven't seen or heard from them in 2 years and have no idea how to get in touch with them. I am the daughter of Gary Wilkerson and haven't really talked to him in a while. If anyone knows how to get in touch with him or Robyn (Suzie) Wilkerson, I would greatly appreciate it. Please leave me an e-mail if you have any information.

You cannot imagine my delight when I found this site from the genealogy website CyndisList. I have spent hours pouring over the old pictures and the Guest Book Archives and have already located 5 friends from the 30s, 40s and 50s when I lived in Hazard. It's been such fun getting reacquainted via the internet. Right after my marriage in 1954, I moved with my husband, Laddie Adams, to Oklahoma where we've been these 46 plus years. He pastored several churches in Western OK and retired in 1996 from the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma. I worked for over 20 years for David Boren when he was Governor of OK and later when he was US Senator. I retired in 1995 just 3 months before the bombing. The building where I worked was directly across from the Federal Building and was completely gutted by the bomb; several of my friends were injured and three were among those killed. I really love the Oklahoma sunsets, complete ground to ground rainbows and the wide open night skies and while I miss the mountains, I do feel at home here. Thanks for putting together such a wonderful web site. I have sung the Singing Miner's theme song for years to my family and it was a real thrill to finally let them hear the real thing! All the pictures brought back many fond memories of Don's, the HHS band with William Walter Hall directing, Mrs. Emma Ross's English class at HHS, Mrs. Dobyns music, speech and vocal lessons and our trips to the Cincinnati Zoo to hear the operas and to ride the roller coaster. What a great place to grow up!I would love to hear from any of you who graduated in 1950 (or before or after) who were classmates. It will be such fun remembering old times.
