    Note:A quote from part of the history of Homer, KY & Homer Felts from "A History of Lewisburg and Northern Logan County, Kentucky."
    Tradition states that the town was incorporated in 1876 & named for Homer Felts, who was said to have been born on May 24th of that same year. "My records show he was born May 24th of 1870." Homer grew up to be an extremely talented musician & was well loved by all who knew him.He played a trumpet and it was said that wherever one saw Homer Felts, he would have his trumpet. Married to Lula Browning of Lewisburg, Homer became a Professor at Bethel College in Russellville & later at Campbellsville College in Campbellsville, KY. Years later, on December 8th, 1969, Morris Linton of Russellville, in writing Mr. Felts' obituary for the NEWS DEMOCRAT, stated that [Homer] was born a Baptist & a Republican, & he lived & died with that faith. Had he been a Democrat during those years, he might have held many offices." Mr. Felts did run for office several times, in Logan County & was defeated because the Democrate party help such a majority of the county voters. In his writing, Mr. Linton noted that when Homer & his wife moved to Campbellsville, KY, it was Logan County's loss. Those who remember Mr.and Mrs. Felts would strongly agree.
    According to the family ancestry records of the Felts family, the Logan County pioneer of the family was John Henry Felts, who is thought to have immigrated to the Homer area from North Carolina in 1792, with his wife Kathy Ann, four sons & possibly one daughter. Their son James Henry Felts, born in Logan County in December of 1806, married Patsy Simmons (b. 1798) in September of 1830 & became a Baptist minister.
