Bio and Links
Bio Photo NOTE: I've changed e-mail addresses! I'm getting into genealogy as a career now so I figured it was time for a more professional e-mail address. I've been doing genealogy for 15 years now so if you need any help at all, let me know and I'd be more than glad to help out!

I want to thank FindaGrave member Lynn Fischer for helping me out the very most here on this site!

My name is Brecca Mefford but I more commonly go by Vannie LaRue. My Father is a Mefford from Muhlenberg County. My Mother is a Blanford from Henderson County. My maternal Grandmother was a Sandefur and her Mother a Thompson. I live right next door to Fernwood Cemetery in Henderson. I have single handedly photographed all the stones in the main Gibson Family Cemetery in Corydon, Hatchett Cemetery towards Zion, and Brickwall Cemetery in the Reed area: I am also related to every person buried in each cemetery (or at least darn close to it!)

I am on a mission to figure out how I am related to every single person buried in Henderson County, Kentucky. My Ancestry tree is up to 32,000 people and it's growing by the hundreds every single day!

If you believe you might be related to me, shoot me an e-mail. I love connecting with distant cousins!

Butler Cemetery
Vannie, I have looked for Butler Cemetery several times with no luck. Do you know exactly where it is?

Randolph Cemetary
Thank you for all of the work you are doing--it's quite impressive! I have a question about 3 people you have listed as children of Hugh Powhatan and Elizabeth Randolph. The children are buried in Randolph Cemetary. I've been searching census and other records and don't see these children's names listed anywhere. Do you have a source of documentation that connects Hugh and Elizabeth with these children that you'd be willing to share? The parents are buried in Richmond, Missouri; they lived in Henderson County until the late 1800s. I would really appreciate any sources you might have. Thanks.

Hi Vandalia,

I just wondered if you found information about George Rowland. I figured he was buried at Rowland Cemetery, but I had no proof. Did you find him in Mr. Blue's book? Did you ever make it out to Craig-Reid Cemetery? I was hoping you'd found the graves there.

RE: Hi!
Oh my gosh really? That's awesome. I don't know all of her Pippin family members (from what I understand there are a LOT of you all) but I do know a few. She actually lived next door for the first eighteen years of my life before she passed so I was super close to her and I think of her nearly every day still. I'm actually Carl's daughter. Do you know Christi and her kids Tyler and Alex? My mom used to babysit them when they were little. They and Christi's sisters are the only relatives that my parents saw routinely when I was older, though they did see Grandma's brothers and their wives and occasionally their children from time to time. I think my brother interviewed Thomas when he was a kid for a school project because he had fought in World War II and we used to give them a ton of vegetables all the time from my parents garden.

Who are you related to just out of curiosity?
