Mike Watson: A favorite story from Margaret Coffey Staples
Comments re article 45582: A young couple goes to Gretna Green north 1912Mike Watson writes:
Ed, There are many good stories that touch upon Mr. Richeson F. "Rich" Paull. One of my personal favorites was told me by Mrs. Margaret Coffey Staples, long-time owner of Lany Bray & Company. Mrs. Staples, our neighbor on High Street until her death, in referring to Mr. Paull, would say with a twinkle of the eye, "He was Rich Paull and he was 'rich' Paull." -MWThanks. For the story and for bringing Mrs. Staples back to mind. What a class act she was! She had such elegance and poise. And Lany Bray & Company? It may have been dwarfed by counterparts in Louisville, but none there had more style. George Jr. Staples and Margaret Coffey Staples were a beautiful couple; so many of our fond memories of the fifties center around them. -EW.
