Letter: Greensburg house was the house I grew up in

Roger Rucker writes:
This is the house I grow up in, My father Gerald Rucker bought this house after transferring to Green Co. from Adair with Taylor Co. RECC. The tan house just below it, just beside the lamp post, is the old Greensburg Academy were Mentor Graham taught school. Mentor Graham is credited with providing Abraham Lincolnís formal education. Years later my father returned back to Adair Co. along with my brother, sister and myself. So no matter were the picture is, or where you are, there are ties to Adair Co. --Roger Rucker

Roger, thank you so much for letting us know a bit about this special location! It would be nice to also know what it was like living there -- thinking there must have been a lot of good exercise gained if you walked up and down it. Driving in snow probably was very interesting from that hillside! -- LW
