    d: 27 Jun 1932
    "Barbourville [KY] Advocate"
    March 24, 1933 (p. 2)
    In memory of our loving daughter,
    Miss Grace Sasser,
    who passed from this life June 27, 1932.
    How sad indeed it is to give up our loved ones. She was a most kind
    and lovable girl when at home with father and mother, and to think
    she went so soon. Oh, how sad we feel when we gather around the
    fireside and at the table and not see Grace. What is home when the
    brightest jewel is gone? Oh dear Grace, how we miss you. Tears of
    silence often flow. A place now is vacant in our home that never can
    be filled. You are gone but not forgotten; nor will you ever be.
    It was sad to see you suffer but hard to give you o'er. We hope that
    some glad day on Heaven's shore we will meet never to part. To be
    together for ever more. Sadly missed by your loving father, mother
    and sister.
    - Miss Dessie Sasser

    Arthur's 2nd wife was Belle (Cottingim) Chesnut.
    It is said that Arthur was raised by his "uncle" Cleveland Chesnut.
    Cleveland could have literally been an uncle, but it was once common
    for people to call an older cousin uncle or aunt.

    Southern Living Magazine will feature Vintage House
    ~By Crystal Edwards
    Vintage is a word usually acquainted with fashion. For Knox Countians,
    Vintage is a word synonymous for good dining.

    The Vintage House,
    located on the corner of North Main Street and Courthouse Square,
    has long been the premier restaurant for sit-down dining. With the
    collection of old photographs and antiques that decorate the oldest
    building on the square serving as a backdrop, the Vintage House has
    been host to almost every special occasion known to man. Soon, the
    Vintage House will no longer be Barbourville's best kept secret.
    The magazine "Southern Living" has chosen to profile
    Doug and Sharon Warriner's establishment
    in the near future. In doing so not only will the restaurant get national
    exposure, but so will the town of Barbourville. According to Warriner,
    the publishers at "Southern Living" would have never heard about the
    Vintage House if not for a certain Republican icon. "The Hal Rogers
    Tourism Initiative has really tried to promote his district for the
    historical value it has," Warriner said. "He has hired a firm specializing
    in public relations to better live up to the slogan -'get ready company
    is coming,'" Warriner added. George Percy, a representative from Geiger
    and Associates, the public relations firm handpicked by Rogers,
    accompanied Wanda Butler, writer for "Southern Living," to the Vintage
    House on June 7. Their goal was to find out what the fuss was about. It
    didn't take them long to find their answer. "This is the best food
    and hospitality I've ever had in Kentucky," Percy said. While Warriner
    believes the food is the main attraction to his business, he knows the
    ageless decor adds a little something extra his customers can appreciate.
    "We try to maintain a certain ambiance here by taking this old building
    and decorating it with a creative twist," he said. "We have quite a
    collection of old photographs and other pieces of history so when people
    come here to eat, they can appreciate the traditions of the area too."
    As for the food, Warriner describes his masterpieces as "southern with a
    twist." With meals Buttermilk Pecan Crusted Chicken, the Cowboy Ribeye
    Steak, House Smoked Salmon or Trout, and Fried Green Tomatoes among
    the most popular, it's evident this is a place worth checking out. The
    Vintage House is open for lunch on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for
    lunch and Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for dinner. They also cater
    events and are currently serving eight separate counties. Warriner said
    his menu changes frequently, but his goal never waivers. "While we love
    hosting people from all areas, we love to entertain people in this
    community," he said. "I think everyone around here has the same goal, to
    work toward improving our city as much as possible," he added. Warriner
    said he gets his ideas for recipes from several different cultures. He has
    had culinary training in Spain and France. A publication date for the Vintage
    House article in "Southern Living" was not available at press time.
    However, when it's released, it will available.
