Amazing how times have changed! I'll post some pics of the buses he drove. Just so you know, I received a message on the website from a distant 'cousin' because of pictures I posted of Dr. Frank Ellis. I am waiting for a reply from her, but haven't heard back yet. This is the first time I've received any info from a related person and am looking forward to sharing info with her. She may have info that I am missing on his family and I may have some she doesn't have. I was very happy to hear from her. Thanks for the website.

Your biography and photos of Dr. Frank Ellis are hugely impressive! :) I wish I had such cool photos of my ancestors...I expect a lot of folks reaching out to you... By the way, did you notice the money changers strapped to the bus drivers' waists? Such a cool photo!
