Query: Wants information on the Greyhound Bus in Columbia, KY

William Jenkins writes:
I know that the Greyhound Bus Lines had routes to Louisville when I was growing up. Henry Morgan ran the route more than once each day. Don't know when that ended or maybe it hasn't.

Then there was a bus which I would ride to the country to visit Cousin Bess and Cousin Ernest Flowers (she was the best cook in the world, or so I thought) for a couple of days. If you don't remember them, they were the parents of Elizabeth Flowers, (I called her "Toop") who married Herschel Baker Jones. Just curious about that bus as to who owned it, etc. Thanks for any info!! -hj
Thanks. There haven't been enough reminders about this wonderful service now gone a few decades into history. Maybe some readers will be able to pinpoint the times. I hope so. Your letter does remind us that the Hershel Baker and Elizabeth Jones House remains perhaps the most beautifu one in the county, at least since the Ernest and Bess Flowers House, just north of Zion was razed. Would love to have photos. -Ed Waggener
