Somewhere along life’s journey I came into possession of a 1940 wall map of Kentucky that has provided hours of entertainment.
I get a kick from reading names of some of the communities, many of which probably had schools and post offices at one time, but are now just faded memories.
There were lots of common themes followed when it came to assigning names to places.
For instance, you won’t find many counties that don’t have places named in honor of females.
In Estill county the names include Patsey, Evelyn and Ola.
