Bio and Links
Bio Photo I want to first take a moment and thank some of the FindaGrave community for all their help over the years: Lynn Fischer, Karen Waddell, David Melton, Sarah Vittur, to name just a few.

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 35,000 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!

Hey Brecca, I was a Mefford also, from Mason County, KY . Don't know if we're related but I came across this by accident ,looking into the Davis line . Good luck in all your research. Kay.

RE: Hi, cousin!
I don't remember your mom, but as she would have been a teenager when I was a kid, that makes sense! The Blanford's had wonderful childhoods with many sweet memories.

Spent many a day at Aunt Rene and Uncle Dick's. We (Grandma Opal and some of the kids and grandkids) went Christmas caroling there the last Christmas Aunt Rene was alive and all took little gifts. Think she really enjoyed it.

I have a lot of memories of Jody, too. He had such a funny sense of humor despite all of his disabilities. And John Harvey was my age, so we played together a bit growing up... I was wondering where you fit in. Now I know!

RE: Hi, cousin!
Thanks so much for all your help. I deleted my request for a child link and included it in the biographies (I think successfully!) May God reward you; I don't think I could've done it without you.

RE: Hi, cousin!
Okay, I didn't get it right the first time. Saw another example and understood a little better. Would you be willing to link my grandparents to the boys?

RE: Hi, cousin!
Wow, you're quick! Thanks for the advice. I didn't really like the option of listing them as children because, like you said, it's not accurate. I haven't tried the linking yet, but I'm going to give it a try. I'm a techno dummy, so my chances are about 50/50.

RE: Powell-Raymond
That is great about you guys wanting to clean Brickwall up. Maybe you all will uncover more graves. Thats what I hope to do when I go back to Powell this fall. I have finished posting all the photos I took. It says 60% photographed which is of course a lot better than the 2% it was lol. I added two memorials also that must not have been in the cemetery book.
