Bio and Links
Bio Photo IF I have created a memorial for one of your direct ancestors, do not hesitate to ask for a transfer, unless, of course, they are also my direct line ancestors. Now, if I am related by marriage and the person is something like my third cousin by marriage, I will transfer (unlike some on FAG). I am not in this to be included on the list of one having made the most submissions to FAG.
RESEARCHING: Gibbs, Worley, Sutton, RICHMOND, ELLISON, Moore, Mahan, Morgan, Sullivan, Wyatt, Rose, Caddell, Patrick, Cornelius, Gatliff, Sego, Blakely, Cummins, Davis, Wilson, Jones, primarily in Whitley County, Kentucky, but also in Laurel and Knox counties.
Researching: Engle, Harris, Lee, Moore, Trosper, Golden, Broughton, Henson, in Knox County, KY.

So much for FAG rules; more like suggestions, can be ignored at leisure, when it comes to transfers of memorials. I speak of a request of transfer of great grandparents from folks NOT even related.

An unreadable rock is ....a rock.

Everytime I see that caption, was this person famous, I think of this:

Full many a gem of purest ray serene
The dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear;
Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,
And waste its sweetness on the desert air.

Same poem:

The boast of heraldry, the pomp of power,
And all that beauty, all that wealth e'er gave,
Awaits alike the inevitable hour.
The paths of glory lead but to the grave.

G. Dan Lumpkin
RE: Lumpkin
It is my understanding that he is buried there as well. though this article confirms it...thanks for that.....I know my great grandparents George Joshua Lumpkin and Joanna Adcock Lumpkin are buried there as well. Wish we knew who owns the cemetery and can get some help in cleaning it up, From what I understand it may have been vandalized and has not been well kept.....thanks Dan

Nancy Stinson Gibbs
Thanks for the information. I have her as a daughter of Judea M McKeehan and Perry Stinson and have updated her information. DOB Nov. 18, 1855, Whitley County, marriage to Andrew J Gibbs about 1876, no date of death.
So far nobody has made it up to the Old "Jeff" McKeehan Cemetery as it is hard to get to and the base area is often flooded. Otherwise, I do have photo requests in for the cemetery.
