Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching my Scots-Irish Gambill clan from Virginia, North Carolina (Wilkes, Ashe, Alleghany Counties), as well as Kentucky (Lawrence, Elliott, Boyd, and Breathitt Counties.)

I'm especially interested in the following surnames associated with my paternal line:

Gambill, Holbrook, Lyon, Sparks, Collier, and Boggs.

The three Gambill brothers that moved into North Carolina from VA had strong ties to their neighbors/fellow militiamen (Patriots!) during Revolutionary War times. Many of these families continued to stay bonded through marriage and many migrated from Wilkes County, NC and various parts of Virginia into Eastern Kentucky in the early 1800s. I AM A DESCENDANT OF Patriarch JOHN GAMBILL SR OF WILKES COUNTY.

Note: I am also interested in the Wakeman Family of New Haven and Fairfield, Connecticut and the Masons of Gaston County, North Carolina and Conway County, Arkansas.

RE: Felix Davis Sandage Cemetery Van Buren Co AR
Van Buren County Arkansas has a cemetery book that was published 1993. This book has Felix Davis as being in Sandage Cemetery. It was recorded by Erma Leonard. She lived next door to the cemetery. There are monuments in that cemetery, but not of Felix. Ms. Leonard has been deceased for a number of years. The book was published by the historial center of VBC.

This is Laraine Myers. I'll share my ancestry tree with you if you'll share yours with me. This is a branch of the family that's been hard to research.

RE: memorial 44766206
This is Bud Hummel's girlfriend, Laraine Myers. Lottie Mae Dill was my late husband's grandmother. Talitha Dill was his great grandmother. A lot of the Dills and Rhodes/Rhoads are buried in the Agency, MO, cemetery. If you give me a private email address, I'll send you the original copy that I made from a family photo.
