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.

Mr. Gibbons...I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. If I have made an error, I am glad to correct or withdraw a request. Of course a memorial created post-death takes precedence over one created before. In the meantime, though, I would appreciate you addressing the issue in a more respectful tone. Unkindness is NOT necessary.

Find A Grave Memorial# 154420734
Pearl Schreiber is buried in Riverside Cemetery with her husband. I just added a photograph of the gravestone. Your record for her doesn't indicate the cemetery. Could you please correct it? Thank you.

I tried to add this correction to the record, but it didn't seem to work, so I am leaving you this message.

Pearl's mother is Lida Otzwirk (Find A Grave Memorial# 51529866), so you might want to link to her, too.

Hi. I created memorial 99610073 for this man at different cemetery, based on incorrect family information regarding his gravesite. It already has links and a photo, so I've asked Find A Grave to merge the two memorials. If you want to remain the manager, that is all right. If not, feel free to transfer it.
