Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on genealogy for about 25 years. I just found out about Find A Grave a few months ago. What a handy tool this is. I enjoy going around to different cemeteries looking at all the old headstones, and taking pictures for people who might not every see the headstonesof there ancestors if someone didn't take pictures for them.

If anyone finds an error, please let me know and I will correct it. Also anyone who would like to add something, I can also do that for you.

For over 15 years I have been seriously researching my Gibbons family, with a beginning origin in South Carolina (Joseph Franklin Gibbons 1839 and still searching for information prior to that), also researching the Paris family (Rhoda Catherine Paris) from Spartanburg, South Carolina and the Giles families from that area.

From there the search has taken me into Harlan and Bell Counties in Kentucky, and surrounding counties in VA & TN, later on to Rockcastle and Lincoln Counties in KY also. In KY families that connect with our Gibbons are: Fee's, Green, Burkhart, Hensley, Wynn, Wilson and more.

My grandfather Andrew Jackson Gibbons was born in SC, was raised and married Margaret Fee in Harlan County KY. They raised their family in Lee Co. VA. Andrew Jackson Gibbons brothers are, James Giles, John Giles, Spurgeon Gibbons, Willie Gibbons, Campbell Gibbons, Frank Gibbons II and Nathan Gibbons. No known sisters.

If anyone has information of any of these families I would be very appreciative of anything you are willing to share.

I am also working on a register for Rose Hill Cemetery in Robinson, Kansas.

Anna B Hammond Perdew
Find A Grave Memorial# 27382914

Hi, I was wondering where the B came from on Anna's heading on find a grave. I have no records of her having a B in her name. I'm wondering if this is an indexing error. Would appreciate any insights you could lend.

I appreciate all you do. I would never find ancestors and their connections were it not for kind hearted souls like yourself.

Thank you

Gerald Gilpatrick (#150182053)
Hello, I am working on my husband's family tree. I am trying to identify if Gerald Gilpatrick married someone in that family tree.

Do you know if the Gerald in this memorial, was ever married to a woman named MARTHA in Michigan? In our tree, Gerald & Martha did have a son named Jerry.

I do see in this obit. that Gerald does have a son named Jerry.

Thank you,

Vicki Moss-Hall

Vera Louise Milsap
Find A Grave nr 116078545 am requesting you to cancel this record. Please note we have had a serious problem that the Wamsley cemetery had two separate records one being in Clinton county which is wrong, the right cemetery is in Cameron DeKalb county.
I have personally deleted some 50 records from the wrong cemetery. Vera has a proper record at the proper cemetery.

thanks for yr help

That is what I am saying I NEVER ASKED YOU A THING. So where ever you got that request is not my problem. Sorry if it angered you but I did not request anything for you to do.
