The diaries of Artie Lee Foster are being contributed by her niece Debbi Cooper.

In these journal entries you will find deaths, marriages and day to day details of living in Casey County that you may not find anywhere else. The entries date back to 1932. Artie Lee, married Finley Foster of Casey County and died in
1990 at the age of 86....... So take a trip back in time and visit a slower gentler way of life... Enjoy!!

I thought that maybe you would like some information on the person that 
wrote the diaries: 

Artie Lee was born 26, May 1896 Casey County, Kentucky  to John Dave Lee 13, October 1876 - 7, February 1960  and Judy Cochran  29, January 1879-9, May 1960 . They were married 6, June 1895 Casey County.  Divorced 1902 Casey County, Kentucky. Artie married Finley Foster 31, March 1924  Casey County. John Dave and Judy Lee had Nettie Lee 30, April 1898 Casey  County - 21, July 1986 She married John Lee Atwood 14 June 1914 Casey County.  Judy was married 3 more times to Luke Leigh 1903, William Campbell 1908 and to  a Henderickson.  John Dave Lee was with my grandmother Nancy Ann  Lacy and had 5 children with her... Uriah Franklin Lee, Robert Chester "Johnnie"  Lee-my Dad, Sarah Mildred Lee, Manley Gene Lee and Betty Ann Lee.  Aunt  Betty is the only one still alive and lives in Liberty.  I would like to  find more information on the children of Nettie Lee and John Lee Atwood.   Artie and Fin had no children. Artie and Fin are buried at Shady Grove Cemetery  I do not know where Nettie and John Atwood are buried.  A little detective  work and I can find that out, something I should have already done. 

If you  can add anything to any of these people I would be so grateful.....Hope you are  enjoying Artie's Diaries and that you maybe are getting a Travel thru time with  me as I write them out for you......

So by  by
