I am originally from Brookport, and we had our highschool prom in the Irvin Cobb hotel, as probably just about every other class in the 50s did.

Jim---thanks for the comments. A lot of schools used the Irvin Cobb. It was a great place and there was always something to do downtown afterward.

I am looking for family members of Brownie Murrel Powers Nichol or even Brownie herself. Her husband co-owned the Paducah Lumber and Manufacturing Company beginning in the 1950s. She was married to my late father from 1946-48, before he married my mother. My father died when I was quite young so I would like to connect with Brownie or one of her children to learn more about her time with my Dad. I think they met when he was playing baseball in the Cardinals organization. Thanks for any info. you can provide.

That's right, Jimmy, you weren't unique then and nothing's changed in 60 years.

Really? Do your balls feel any bigger now? Slap them against your mom's chin.

There used to be more dances at the Cobb, but some snotty bullshit got in the way of that and ruined it for everyone.
