Mrs. Scott's Father Made A Sad Trip To Gradyville

This article first appeared in issue 14, and was written by Staff.

Mrs. Beatrice Rogers Scott of Burkesville Street in Columbia remembers hearing her father speak about the night of the Gradyville Flood.

Her father, Mulis Lee Rogers of Mell, Kentucky, where Adair, Green and Metcalfe Counties meet, - "his home was located half in Green County and half in Adair but he paid his taxes in Adair," she says - was called on to make a sad trip to the sight of the flood.

Mrs. Scott recalls how he said he went to Gradyville in his road wagon to bring home the body of a girl he dated who was visiting there the fateful night of the flood.

Rogers later met and married Mrs. Scott's mom, Ada Estella Finn.

Mrs. Scott is the mom of Kenneth Scott of Bliss.
