Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching my Appalachian GAMBILL clan from North Carolina (Wilkes, Ashe, Alleghany Counties), as well as Kentucky (Lawrence, Elliott, Boyd, Johnson, Breathitt, Clay Counties.)

I'm especially interested in the following surnames:

Gambill, Holbrook, Lyon, Sparks, and Boggs.

Additional interest: the WAKEMAN Family of New Haven colony and Fairfield County, Connecticut and MASONS from Gaston County, North Carolina and Arkansas.

#73094572 Sarah Plott
Hi, and thanks for your message.

Looking back at the main source for Amos's marriage to Sarah, it is in an old book, "Annals of Haywood County," by W.C. Allen, published 1935, p. 580.

The above passage states, "Amos Plott, the fifth son of Henry Plott and grandson of Johannes, was married twice, first to Frances Gambel of Black Mountain, and second to Sara Darighty. There were no heirs from the second marriage."

The gravestone for Sara in Dellwood Cemetery records reads, "Sarah, wife of Amos Plott, December 22, 1802 - August 23, 1895

I cannot now find the source that I used for a maiden name of Turner for Sara, so I have taken that name out of the Find A Grave memorial. If you would like that memorial transferred to you, I would be happy to do so.

RE: Francis C Plott - Dellwood - Haywood Co NC
Thank you so much. You're correct. She would've died before her wedding date.
Great work. Thanks again.

RE: Nelson Sparks gravemaker photo
You're quite welcome! My grandmother was Minta Sparks, daughter of John Elliott Sparks. John Elliott Sparks was a son of Nelson & Margaret's. They are not buried in the Mauk cemetery on Open Fork as described in the find a grave listing. They are in the Mauk cemetery off 504 right past what was the Mauk School. It is on private property. You have to go through two farm gates to access this cemetery.

RE: Russell Cemetery in Breathitt Co, KY
Sorry, I do not have any info. I cataloged the Shelton Russell Cemetery where she is buried, because I have some extended family ancestors who are buried there. I don't have any info on the Gambill family. I am a descendant of the Fugate, Carpenter, Ritchie, and Stacy lines.

RE: Memorial# 68417779

It would be good to write up information on their military service by going to the edit tabs and contacting the custodian with this information. Dates served, unit served with, rank, etc. The 1890 Veterans Census can be of great interest.

Also, where married and when married is important. Lists of children can be very valuable.

Go online and enter

Use the copy and paste function of your mouse to grab the above address and stick it on you computer for a search.

Go to advanced search. This address is mainly for early research ... before 1920 ... for most searches../.. They are adding new material as it becomes available.

Sorry, to bother you again

I added more information to the image that you wondered about. Please, click on it to see the additions. I also added several additions and correction to their memorials. Including, some connections. They may not show up for days. Unless, the custodian is available to make the changes right away.

Again, I am requesting, with hope, that you would go ahead and make any connects you are able to for parents as well as children. What a wonderful thing for you to undertake.

Remember, Find A Grave uses their numbering system that is unique for each person's memorial.

If their are people you can't find in the Find A Grave system. Find A Grave provides for this occurrence by letting you create memorials that are not connected to cemeteries. Still allowing you to enter all the information. Later if their memorial is found it is easy to shift the memorial to a known cemetery.

So long, Martin Burrell
