  • Orphan Brigade has storied local history

    He was only 16, but a war was being fought, and in the 1860s his manhood was never questioned. He was born in Owenton, Ky., raised by his grandmother, and eventually was apprenticed as a cabinetmaker in Wheatley.
    When the Civil War touched Owen County, J.C. Hartsough joined the Confederate Army and became a soldier of the Orphan Brigade. Though Kentucky claimed neutrality at the beginning of the war, loyalties were divided throughout the state, and most Owen countians eventually chose to fight for the Southern cause.

  • ‘Haying’ in full swing on Kay’s Branch

    Hay, hay and more hay — and I do mean the kind one feeds to the stock. Everybody in the area is rushing to get their hay cut, dried and baled before it rains. Ray got his cut and stored for the coming winter last week. Fay said they were planning to get theirs finished the first of this week. I have seen large rolls of hay on all the fields from Frankfort to Owenton. That’s about the only road I travel anymore.
    I got my hard mowed Saturday, so now we will have a drought. After all the rain we’ve had this spring, it’s bound to happen.
