Donald Bennett: Memories of early Cool Springs, Gradyville, KY
Remembering the Olden, Golden Days: He's been in Barren Co., KY, now, for several decades, but he still has fond memories of Mr. Rollin Kemp and the Cool Springs School, and later, attending the school in Gradyville, great neighbors in Gradyville, KY, Hob's Store, and the Great Citizens from the day.
By Donald Bennett of Gradyville, KY
Now a resident of Glasgow, Barren Co., KY
I read the Columbiamagazine and enjoy it very much.
I read a lot of news from Gradyville, KY. My parents were Louis and Mae Bennett. My family lived in the Big Creek community on the Phillip Moss farm for seven years.
My brothers and sisters and I went to school at Cool Springs and also went to Gradyville school on Highway 80. It was a one room school.
I remember our neighbors were the Rollin Kemp family.
Mr. Kemp was my school teacher at Cool Springs. Some of our neighbors were Vernon and L. V. Janes, Earl Keltner, Con Keltner, Hollis Coomer, Rollin Keltner and his wife Omega, Marvin Keltner and his wife Daisy, and Woodson Nell.
And Hob Walker: I remember walking up to his - Hob Walker's - store.
I wonder if any of these people would remember the Bennett family.
We left Adair County in 1952. Most of my brothers and sisters now live in Glasgow, KY.
I have been here in Glasgow for 38 years . Thanks. - Donald Bennett, Glasgow, KY
