Hello Fellow Researchers,

I'm a big fan of and appreciate all the work the contributors do to add information and photos to this site!

I'm researching maternal lines of Gambill (also spelled Gamble by some relatives). My Mom's maternal line is from McGoffinn County, Kentucky. My immediate connection is to Bessie Gambill, my grandmother, who married Jeffie Howard. They lived in Worthington, KY. I was born in Ashland, KY.

I'm also researching my Dad's line of Colbert from the Chickasaw County area of Mississippi. His side farmed and worked in their town of Trebloc (Colbert spelled backwards) from the mid 1850s and they have ties (I think) back to Chief George Colbert of the Chickasaw Indians.

Gambill/Gambles of Kentucky
The Coon Gambill's line of Gambills (or Gambles) has been a mystery for many descendants trying to trace it.... at least that's my own conclusion from the various descendants that have contacted me for anything that I might know. Unfortunately, I don't know...and I am not even sure that this line is related to my line. My family came out of Wilkes county, North Carolina to Lawrence County, Kentucky (that is a documented fact). Over the years, some of the descendants of moved into Morgan Co (and Boyd) as well as several others and into Ohio and W Virginia,- of course with Coal, Railroads,Oil and other industry. I also believe we are related to the Gambills of Breathitt Co. and their descendants. It can be very confusing to follow lines because so many times the first names will be very similair to names of the Lawrence county Gambills...such as William and John and Henry, etc. And then the possible ties back to North Carolina adds to the intrigue.

Do you have a tree on or other sites? Did you know your Grandmother Bessie and did she have any "stories" about her kin that she passed down? Family genealogy can be "addicting" for sure!

Best regards,
