|The Kentucky Secretary of State's records show that the Corinth Deposit Bank was established on August 28, 1934. They list the original officers, and the incorporation papers (pdf), which has a list of all the original stockholders. On the other hand, these notes indicate the the bank has a prior history. We suspect, but do not know, that the many bank failures of the Great Depression explains the discrepancy.|

|In 1953, there was published a directory of everyone who had ever graduated from the Corinth High School from
1918 - 1953. It's here.
(pdf) We note that while alumni range from Ypsilanti, Michigan, to Florida, to Long Island, to San Francisco, as well as Covington, Newport,
Cynthiana, and lots of other places, there is only one - 1 - graduate they didn't know the whereabouts of.
Imagine that: hundreds and hundreds of grads, dispersed to the far corners of the country, and the community was tight enough that they knew how to contact, regardless of time or distance, over 99‰ of them.
What the hell ever happened to America?
