I am interested in corresponding with someone who lives in Weeksbury, Ky. I was born and raised in Weeksbury in a holler known as Skull Holler. I have been gone since the early 60s but all my childhood memories are there and would love to correspond with someone who could tell me about Weeksbury now and find out if any of my many cousins or other family members still live there. My maternal grandparents were from Weeksbury also. Their names were Willam Birchfield Burke and Louisa Johnson Burke.

Hi Quetta: Hope you don't mind a first name basis. Thanks for replying. It has been a long time since I posted the inquiry so was surprised to get an answer. I was raised up in the right hand fork of Skull Holler in Weeksbury. I haven't been able to visit since 1983. I now live on the East Coast in Virginia but before that, our family moved to Ohio during my sophomore year in high school at Wheelwright. I don't know if your family would know any of mine but just to let you know a little family history. My parents were Kermit Meade and Marcella Burke Meade. My mother's parents were Birchfield and Louise Burke, who also lived up Skull. I would love to visit again but I would hate to see Weeksbury School missing. After your visit, if you have a chance, please write back and tell me about it. I envy you getting to see it this time of year. Fall was one of the best times down there and I have so many wonderful memories. The only family I have living in Weeksbury that I know of is Lizzie Thornsberry. She lives in that row of houses just above where the school house use to be. Again, thanks for replying.

oh my gosh, i can not believe it someone from my family

Hi...So surprised to hear from someone. I posted this message some time ago. You are a first cousin to my mom, so I guess that makes us second cousins. I am Birchfield and Louise Burke's granddaughter. My mom is Marcella Burke Meade and she was the youngest sister of Bose, your grandpa, so hello cousin. I'd love to hear from you and all about where life has taken you. I just recently found out about Melissa's husband, Virgil passing away but apparently it was a few weeks ago. I live in Virginia so do not hear all the news as it happens in Ohio. Write when you have time and tell me all about you and your family and I promise to answer.
