Line Fork Kentucky

March 25th, 2015

This picture was taken at the Kingdom Come Park in Cumberland Kentucky. The valley below is where my Daddy, Odes Robinette grew up. Kingdom Come is significant because missionaries started a school in Line Fork, where my Daddy attended, and the name of the school, which is still there today, is Kingdom Come School.  When my Daddy was a young man the only way to get to Line Fork was by horse back.  In fact, the first time my Daddy saw my Mother was on horse back, as she had rode over the mountain with some friends.  That area is so beautiful and I have many fond memories of visiting there when I was a child. I was born in Lynch, Kentucky but I was just a baby when my family moved to Oak Ridge, where we lived behind the fence, and Daddy worked for Union Carbide on the Manhattan Project.
