Letter: Richard Hovious is wondering about Casey Jones
Laddercam photo brings back memories and reminds reader of a famous Adair Countian
Appreciated the recent Down Town day photos - although I haven't spent much time there during the last fifty years, the view down Campbellsville St. looks a lot like I remember it back in the forties.
I had a cousin, Casey (Kelsey) Jones who had a jewelry shop on the square back then. He was a famous "fiddler" and spent years on a Chicago radio station that everyone around Knifley always "tuned in" to.
My sister Judy was named after one of the girls on his show (Judith Lane). Any idea what happened to Casey? Enjoy the site and still "tweaking up" the book.
Editor's Comment: It's good to hear from you and to know that your book is in the "tweaking up" stage.
Casey Jones' shop was located just outside the Laddercam's range in the photo you refer to, but the memories of Casey Jones do live on here. He was one of our most famous citizens.
We'll look around to see what we can find out, and welcome all reader contributions on the subject. - Ed Waggener
