    I like to think Kirksville and Paint Lick are extensions of each other. I like your website and I think the writers will all do a great job.

    Your comment is greatly appreciated,Darlene, especially since you are such an accomplished writer yourself. Darlene is the author of a book published just this month on the history of Kirksville Baptist Church. She also has a blog for the GHS class of ’73.


    I love anything I can read or learn about Paint Lick and I feel a close connection since my grandparents were from there. My grandmother (Nannie) grew up in Paint Lick, she was Annie Lee Hurt and my grandfather (Padaddy) lived close by the Garrard/Madison line in Berea. His name was Calvin M. Hulett. Nannie and Padaddy’s sister and brother married each other and lived in Paint Lick until they passed away, both in their 90’s. (Padaddy lived to be 98.) They were Ed and Minnie Hurt Hulette. Notice the last name is spelled different than our branch of the family. We always wondered which spelling was correct and learned several years ago that neither of them were! The ancestors who are buried in a small family plot near Berea spelled it Hughlett. Keep up the excellent work.
