Bullitt County History

A Letter from the Flood of 1937 - Page 1

This letter is said to have been written by Annie Laura Jenkins, wife of Russell Jenkins whose parents were Will and Blanche Jenkins. The letter ends abruptly at page 4, and it is unclear whether she finished it, or set it aside without finishing it. The letter is dated 24 Jan 1937. Russell's parents were killed in a drowning accident less than two weeks later on February 5th. Information about this tragedy is located on another page.
