Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Bobby Phillip Everidge, and I live in south eastern, Kentucky (Knott Co.) I am 40 years old. I was born on May 4, 1975. I am the son of Bobby Phillip Everidge, Sr. and Judith Kathryn Stewart Everidge. I hold a BA degree in History from Alice Lloyd College and a AAS Degree in Medical Records from HCTCS. I have been employed at Knott County Social Services as an office manager for the state of KY. for the last 13 years. I have decided to use this wonderful source in two ways: To make tribute to my loved ones, and also as a geneaological based site for myself as well as others to enjoy and learn from. My hobbies are: Well of course- searching through old grave yards, anything Titanic related, hanging out with my best friend Danny-whom I consider my Big Brother, finding left handed gadgets to make life easier (I am left handed), and traveling. I have a huge interest in traditional furniture, and enjoy watching documentaries about historical events, and dinosaurs. My dream job would be a curator of a Fine Art or Natural History museum. My favorite kind of house is a two story southern colonial. I love music and the ocean. I consider myself to be a very friendly and approachable person, so I greatly dislike people that are snobbish.

Researching names in my family are: Everidge, Stewart, Amburgey, Gilley, Drochelman, Scheu, Braun, Crider, Farmer, Branson, Bailey, Roark, Francis, Mitchell, Cornett, Noble, McIntosh, Jones, Turner, Hammonds, Simpson, Adams, Stamper, Hogg, Weller, Lederer, Hoggard, Briscoe, Beaufickle, Marcum, Morgan.

I am a direct descendant of THE ROYAL HOUSE OF STEWART (Stuart). My many Great-Grandparents were Kings and Queens of Scotland and England. Consequently I am related to the many ROYAL Houses through out Europe.

I am mostly of Scotch/Irish ancestry on my mother's side and German on my father's side.

Carena Everidge
Hi, we are not related, but almost were. Carena was the first wife of my grandfather, James Beckham Sturgill, who died in 1966. Carena lived from 1900 to 1924. I think they were married for four years before she died of pneumonia. I cannot find whether they had any children or not.

If you can drop me a line, or

Gilleys in eastern KY
Hi Bobbie. Sorry for doubling this message but on second thought I wanted to make it public so other could see it.

I'm related to a lot of Gilley's in Wolfe Co., and I'm wondering if you could help me with a few that I can't find. I think it's because they were orphans, at least two of them. These Gilleys all moved to Oklahoma with the Stidham family of Wolfe Co. about 1912 or so.

Basically, there are two women named Josie (Josephine?) Gilley, and a man named Lonnie B. who was adopted as a Stidham. The two Josies are a generation apart, but not mother and daughter.

1. Josie Gilley I: Born 1877 in Kentucky, died 1966 in Lincoln Co. OK. She married Samuel Henry "Big Henry" Stidham in 1898. They had one daughter of their own, Mary Margaret Stidham (1899-1984), and they adopted Josie the First and Lonnie B., who acquired the name Stidham through adoption. No other children.
Josie had a brother named John D. Gilley, born in Wolfe Co. KY 1882, died in Lincoln Co. OK in 1949. Family tradition makes them siblings. But John D.'s father was Samuel C. Gilley (1849-1916) of Wolfe Co., and no census for him shows a daughter named Josie.

2. Lonnie B. was born in KY in 1911, died in Lincoln Co. OK in 1998. His original family name is unknown. I have seen ephemeral references suggesting it might be Whitkaker or Lykens, but no evidence. His link with the Gilley's is through his adoptive mother and adoptive sister, both Gilleys.

3. Josie Gillie II: Born in Kentucky in 1914, date and place of death unknown. She grew up with Lonnie as the adopted children of Big Henry and Josie Stidham. She may have married a man named Morris in OK around 1929, but if so she was back home for the 1930 census with Big Henry and Josie. That's the last record I have of her. After that, I suspect she ran off (she was 16), maybe back to her folks in KY. But who were her folks? I have no idea.

Anyway, those are my three mysteries. Are there still people alive if in your family who are old enough to have heard about what happened in Wolfe Co. around 1912? The tradition also says there were some killings that caused everyone to leave, but I have not been able to find about them from the old newspapers. I hope someone in your family remembers my Gilleys or has left some record of them.

Thank you for any help.

Best regards

Wayne Pounds, Tokyo
(My grandmother was a Stidham, born in Wolfe Co. in 1899.)

tway cemetery
Hi Bobbie, I saw your listing for the Tway Cemetery at Tway, Harlan, Kentucky, is this the cemetery beside the Church of Goad Church? Both can be seen from 421 on left if going south. Most sites refer to this cemetery as a Noe-Brittian Cemetery at Tway. Thank You Al Kelly

I think I'm done
I posted the grave photoss for Cecil and Hazel Scheu, I tranfered Jacob Scheu to you (I don't know if he has a grave marker I can't find his location) and I transfered all the krafts over to you. You are very welcome. I enjoyed helping you out.

RE: Scheu/Fluhrer
I think I have the answer to your puzzle. Margaret Geier, Margaret Scheu and Margaret Fluhrer are all the same person. I went to the library today and did some research and this is what think happened. Heinrich Jacob Scheu (born March 29, 1846) married Margaret Geier (born 1846) July 4, 1870. Heinrich Jacob Scheu died July 17, 1873 (only 27 years old) and is buried at Locust Hill Cemetery Evansville, IN (no grave location). In three years of marriage Jacob and Margaret had two daughters Mary and Katharine (Katie) Scheu. Two years after Jacobs death Margaret (Geier) Scheu married Tobias (Flora)Fluhrer (born 1839) on September 23, 1875 in Vanderburgh County, IN. Margaret (Geier) Scheu-Fluhrer had three children by Tobias, Lula (born 1877), William (born 18790 and George (born 1881) Fluhrer. The last connection is after Katharine (Scheu) Drochelmann death in 1898 the 1900 US Federal Census listed William Drochelman and his three small childern (Winnie, Henry and Margaret) as a son inlaw living with Tobin Fuhrer (Tobias Fluhrer) and Maggie Fuhrer (Margaret Fluhrer). I hope this answers your question about how the Scheu's, Fluhrer's and Drochelmann's are related. You have some links to connect up on Find A Grave. Now I would like to put the grave marker photos for Cecil and Hazel Everidge where the grave marker photos usually go. I think if you type in the info off of the Browning cards into bio area on there memorials and then delete the Browning cards I will be able to post the grave photos for Cecil and Hazel. Thanks Bill

RE: Grave Transfer
Bobby it was no problem to do the transfers. I'm glade you had a good experience. I have a photo of Cecil and Hazel Everidge's grave marker, but I can't post it until you remove one of the photos you have posted for them. Find A Grave only allows 5 photos to be posted to a memorial.

RE: Parental Question
Bobby I got my info from the ceneus for Vanderburgh County Evansville, Indiana the year of 1880. Wm.(Henry William) and Mina (Wilhelmina)had six children listed Mary 19 years old, Henry 17 years old, Lizzie 15 years old, Wm. Jr. 10 years old, Katie (Kate) 7 years old and Edward 4 years old. Kate died at about 12 years old and is buried next to her father at Oakhill Cemetery Evansville, Indiana. I would be happy to transfer all the Droehelmann memorials to you. I did change the first name, on the memorial, from Katherine to Kate per records at Oakhill cemetery. Had to do some digging to get a photo of H W Droehelmann. I hope that explains everything.

Is she buried in the Madden Cemetery on Irishman Creek? Or is there another Madden Cemetery?
