Did Ralph Roy also own the Jolly Roger?
Comments re article 42582 Ralph Roy makes perfect sense to another leftyPhyllis Curry writes:
Ed, Do I recall correctly that Ralph Roy was also the driver of the Jolly Roger ice cream truck that used to come down Tutt Street when I was just a girl? The newspape reference brought back a lot of pleasant childhood memories for me. Perhaps one of you could tell the story of the Jolly Roger. Thanks! -Phyllis CurryPhyllis, I believe you may be right. And didn't he also have the only Corvair, or the first one, in America? He was always ahead of his time. Though, for the "Jolly Rogers," he only had Columbia's second one. Leo Wheatley, had the first. Leo's legacy also includes the Lakeway Motel, whose successor buildings, owned by Mike Stephens, still stand at 705 Russell RD, Columbia, KY. -EW
