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.

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

Please, connect Ralph W. Holbrook with his parent's and his children through Find A Grave. Please use the Edit Tab. It is 'free' to be a member. You have to be in order to make/request any changes.

Did you know that Find A Grave has it setup now where changes you request automatically go threw after so many days. No one needs to do a thing. that includes name changes, dates, places, plots, etc.

It is a great method to make corrections.

Best Wishes, martin Burrell

You can copy any of my posting, or, photos. If it is my 'photo' them my name goes with it.

Just remember that you are required by Law to keep the source information with printed material. It is a must do sort of thing. The plagiarism laws require it. This prevents you from taking credit for another's work. Example: you copy the written word, music, photo and use it without sourcing it back to original source.

Be very careful to credit another's images. Newspaper images don't belong to the person that copied it. They are credited to their source name of newspaper, date of printing, page number and published location.

Best wishes, Martin Burrell

RE: Soloman Sparks
The Solomon Sparks you left a marker on was what you stated to be your 7x great grandfather which is my 8x greatgrandfather Solomon Sparks sr, 1725-1790. He also,has a son and grandson of the same name. Solomon Sparks jr 1857-1817 and Solomon Sparks III 1791-1853 are also my grandfathers as well. I. Believe they are all buried in Indiana
