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.

Vernon, Thank you very much for doing a memorial for Kathy. She was a very sweet woman. I visted with her and Earl several time and they treated me like a queen. One of the few cousins I ever really got to know. So many miles between us. Thank you

Robert Kratz memorial
Hello, once again I am writing you with the same problem...duplication of a memorial I had posted two days earlier than the one you posted. In the past you have not honored any request to remove duplicates you have made of memorials I had posted but hope you will this time so there won't be duplicate records for Robert Kratz in the Steele Cemetery. Thanks. Linda O.

There is a second record for this person, #144430466, with a photo of the crypt and name whereas your record says ashes unknown.

The are two different cemeteries. Could you please either merge or delete one record.

Thank you.

Clyde Theroff
Hi Vernon,

I usually don't ask this, but this is a special case. Would you be willing to transfer Clyde Raymond Clarence Theroff to me? He is my grandfather and it would really mean a lot.

Thanks.
