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.

Phyllis Williams in Wayne County, Iowa
Hi Vernon - You had a bio and an obituary on the memorial for Phyllis Jean (Smith) Williams and you had her in Promise City Cemetery. She was actually buried in Sharon Cemetery in Wayne County, Iowa. I don't know what happened, but the memorial you added for her was deleted. I have added a memorial for her in the meantime in Sharon Cemetery. If you have her obit or picture still, will you send them to me so I can add them to her memorial? My guess is that you must have accidentally deleted her memorial when you went to change it to the correct cemetery.

Sterling Kottich Memorial #149879152
Sterling is not in the Zion Bethel Cemetery, but the Zion Cemetery under #153330888 with the other Kottich family members. I noticed the duplication. Delbert Falsken, Contributor.

Phyllis Williams - 124894976
Hi Vernon - It looks like the "P" in Phyllis' name was cut off on her bio on her memorial. Could you please go back and fix that? It's the first word in her bio. Thank you : )

You recently added him to Agency Mo cemetery. But this is NOT correct. He is not buried there. I have put him in the correct cemetery which is McGehee-White Cemetery in Sardis Mississippi. Please delete him from Agency. Again he is not there. He is my cousin. I have cross flagged him with his father also.

Your memorial for my friend Jeffry Grace is a duplicate. An earlier memorial already existed. Please remove the duplicate. Thank you.

You memorial #153099697 entered on 10/1/2015 for Ila June Bridge McIntosh is a duplicate of my #20731055 entered on Aug 01, 2007

Also, your memorial #152748097 entered on for Lewis Frank Coats is a duplicate of my #21140417 entered on Aug 24, 2007.

Please delete your duplicates as it is causing confusion with gravers. Thank you.

You created a duplicate instead of forwarding updated information to me to post.
