I recently found out my Dad's father was his adopted father. I have found out who my real grandpop is and am doing some research. I hear our clan is huge. I found out my grandpop was born in Happy, KY and alot of our clan is still in that area. So to my point. I would like to know all about Happy as I am thinking of relocating there. Is it dry? What is the population? What is housing like to rent or buy? What is employment like ? is it hard to find a job? What are wages like? I'd like to know all that kind of stuff. I am also looking for any Kilbournes.
Thank you for any help.

I have a ton of family in Doty Creek which is near Jeremiah, KY. It is just a few miles from Happy. I haven't been down there in years as it's at the other end of the state from here. But as I remember it it is up in the hills and the roads are narrow, I don't know if it is wet or dry down there, but I'd guess dry. It's pretty down there, but there is ever less to do there than it is here ... and that's saying a lot.

If it's anywhere in Eastern, KY.. and is a small town... your job prospects are probably very slim picken's. I love Eastern, KY, as I live here myself, but economically we are the poorest part of the state and jobs are relatively scarce the more rural you are.

Good luck in finding your family. You might give this a try.... I wrote the post office in small towns inquiring about police departments for jobs... and I addressed many of the letters of inquiry to the postmaster. Many wrote me back to give me any information or even just opinions on their town/county, etc. You may have great luck in doing something like that with a letter to the local Happy Post Office or maybe the local library if they have one... people in these parts tend to be very helpful when it comes to family/kin... or about their towns.. etc.
