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.

Effie Corey obit and correction
I did make the changes based on the article. I think in this case a newspaper is more credible than the date on a stone. I know some stones are made even years past the death, and errors happen. I'll credit the source in the bio. Thanks!

I made the changes you suggested. I am not a relative and would transfer his memorial to you if you want.

#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.
