Before Preach Hoover, Roy Bunch carried mail to The Ridge

Sometimes he delivered on horseback, when writer remembers joining him as he made appointed rounds from Glensfork to The Ridge.

Wayne Bunch writes:
Reading the story about "Preach" Hoover brought back memories of my teenage years. Before "Preach" had the mail route my late uncle, Roy Bunch delivered mail from the Glensfork post office to the Cundiff post office on Melson Ridge. He would usually drive, but on many occasions I would join him on horseback when he traveled the back roads to Glensfork then back to the "ridge." I was probably 12-16 years old and was spending my summers in Kentucky with my uncle and aunt Ella. The article sure brought back pleasant thoughts. - Wayne Bunch

MIKE WATSON: Adair County post office list

By Mike Watson

Adair County Post Offices, a listing

The post-Civil War era brought about an explosion of post offices across the United States. With a need to dispense a greater volume of personal communication and growing mail order business materials, more mail was delivered to the average citizen than had ever been imagined possible. In time, post offices were rarely more than three miles from the homes of most Americans. Postmaster appointments were made by the United States Postal Department in Washington, D.C. and were usually politically motivated. It was usual for the postmaster to change with each presidential administration. This practice was modified in 1917, which is the reason we begin to see longer terms served by postmasters - thirty years and more not being unusual.

Adair County had her fair share of post offices. Names changed for various reasons, discontinuation of service and re-establishment of same were common. County lines were ambiguous when it came to postal service, but Washington kept tract of a post office by the county in which it was housed. Some of the Adair post offices were in one county, then another, nothing changing but the physical location of the office. Locations of post offices were ultimately determined by the postmaster in the early days, typically housed in a local store.

The following is a list of those offices once located in Adair County:
Absher, Basil, Belmont, Big Creek, Bliss, Breeding - began as Breeding's, Cane Valley, Cape, Casey Creek, Chance, Cherry Shade, Christine, Coburg, Coleman, Columbia - originally Columbia Court House, Craycraft, Crocus - originally Millersville, Cundiff, Dillingham, Dirigo, Dulworth, East Fork, Edith, Ella, Elroy, Eunice, Fairplay - initially Fair Play, Gadberry, Garlin, Gentry's Mill, Gifford - original name of Inroad, Glensfork- when incorporated the town was named Glenville, Gradyville, Heraline, Hogard, Holmes, Hovious, Inroad, Joppa, Keltner, Kemp, Kerns, Knifley, Little Cake, Lowgap, Matney, McGaha, Millersville, Milltown, Montpelier, Neatsburg, Neatsville, Nell, Ozark, Parson, Pellyton, Perryman, Pickett, Picnic, Portland, Purdy, Pyrus, Rexroat, Roy, Rugby, Sano, Santo - which preceded Sano by two years, Sparksville, Speck, Stotts, Sulphur Fork, Tampico, Tarter, Toria, Turk, Tyler - name changed to Little Cake, Vester, Victoria, Watson, Weed.
Considerable research has been done on these offices, but so much more could be found in obscure records and in private hands...and minds! MW - Mike Watson

Great memories of Glensfork Post Office-and special man

Jeff Hoover recalls regularly meeting his grandfather, McKinley "Preach" Hoover, at the Glens Fork Post office for the completion of his route, after which there was a quick lunch, and then, he writes, "we would spend the afternoon on the Columbia square, with me running around town and him sitting around the courthouse with other men whittling and telling stories!"

Jeff Hoover writes:
Ed, I just wanted to share some thoughts when looking at the photo of the old Glensfork Post Office.

For many, many years, my late grandfather, McKinley M.C. "Preach" Hoover, carried mail out of the Glensfork post office.

He would leave Columbia each morning, go to the Glensfork Post Office, then continue on to Crocus and other places, and usually got back to Glensfork about 11:30 a.m. or 12 noon each day.

As a child, my parents would take me from our home in Jamestown to the Glensfork post office where I would meet up with my grandfather as he finished his route, then ride with him back to Columbia post office.

After a quick lunch, we would spend the afternoon on the Columbia square, with me running around town and him sitting around the courthouse with other men whittling and telling stories!

My recollection is that there were usually several folks sitting on benches in front of the post office or standing around outside talking each time I was there. I have great memories of the Glensfork post office and my grandfather and his connection to the post office.

Thanks --Jeff Hoover

Guest editorial: Thoughts on the possible post office closings

Social cost of closing rural post office far outweighs the pittance the USPS will 'save' shutting down rural institutions. Stranger 'praises' Ed Whitfield. Gives George Orwell Doublespeak Life Award for calling it post office closing hit list 'Expanded Access study list' to (drum roll): The United States Post Office!

By The Wayfaring Stranger

It occurs to this Wayfaring Stranger that the announcement of the possible shutdown of thousands of post offices across the country is closely akin to the story of the gentleman who dropped a dime in the hallway but looked for it in the kitchen because the light was so much better there.

Today, THURSDAY with CM. July 28, 2011

Here are Quick Links to selected favorite columns, stories with perhaps some links to albums, and to news from the past week and beyond. SUNDAY with CM - JULY 24, 2011 for July 24, 2011 and your favorite writers + important news stories:
A Time to Praise Great Adair Countians.
More will be added today, we hope, with the help of readers. Along with it, we hope suggestions for what would be proper and fitting honors for the living, memorials for the dead, should be be considered by the community:
  • Charles Victor Sparks: The community continues to grieve. No one speaks of his him with another who knew him without a choke, without misty eyes, and always, an story about how he personally touched so many lives, in both big and little ways. Thoughts are now turning to fitting memorials and tributes.

  • Dakota Meyer:: What tributes Adair and Green Counties have to tell the country how proud we are of Congressional Medal of Honor Dakota Meyer, whose name is already a household word in America? An who was claimed for a short time, by Austin, Texas (but the Austin American has updtated their story in the last day: See A street? A school? A locally made movie?

  • BG James A. Williamson:And as we do, would it be a good time for Adair County to make a permanent monument to her first Congressional of Honor winner, BG James A Williamson: Son of Adair, Medal of Honor receipient? After all, it is significant that there are two Congressional Medal of Honor winners from one small town.

  • Col. Frank Wolford: Does yet more need to be done to pay tribute to him? An article article in Sunday with CM, by Jim about another facet of Frank Lane Wolford's career - as a statesman - brings to memory another quote by Adair County's Judge H.C. Baker from an earlier contribution by Cyrus:
    Judge H.C. Baker wrote this about Colonel Frank Wolford, after Wolford's death in 1895:
    He did not aspire to be any other body than Frank Wolford, and hence he had no model after which to pattern. Frank Wolford was sui generis, a diamond in the rough, and just a little different from all other diamonds.
