Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you have more information for the memorial, like a middle name, maiden name, birth date, etc, please feel free to e-mail me through the 'suggest changes,' option on the memorial. I usually get around to making changes the same day I am e-mailed or at least by the next day. I want to thank FindaGrave member Lynn Fischer for helping me out the very most here on this site!

My name is Brecca Mefford but I more commonly go by Vandalia 'Vannie' LaRue. My Father is a Mefford from Muhlenberg County. My Mother is a Blanford from Henderson County. My maternal Grandmother was a Sandefur and her Mother a Thompson. I live right next door to Fernwood Cemetery in Henderson. I have single handedly photographed all the stones in the main Gibson Family Cemetery in Corydon, in which I'm literally related to everyone buried there. I am on a mission to figure out how I am related to every single person buried in Henderson County, Kentucky. My ancestry dot com tree is up to 26,500 people and it's growing by the hundreds every single day!

If you believe you might be related to me, shoot me an e-mail. I love connecting with distant cousins!

NOTICE: I've changed e-mail addresses! Don't be alarmed! I was getting too much spam to my old e-mail that I'd had since like 2005, I decided it was time for a change! :)

Hi Vandalia,

I just wondered if you found information about George Rowland. I figured he was buried at Rowland Cemetery, but I had no proof. Did you find him in Mr. Blue's book? Did you ever make it out to Craig-Reid Cemetery? I was hoping you'd found the graves there.

RE: Hi!
Oh my gosh really? That's awesome. I don't know all of her Pippin family members (from what I understand there are a LOT of you all) but I do know a few. She actually lived next door for the first eighteen years of my life before she passed so I was super close to her and I think of her nearly every day still. I'm actually Carl's daughter. Do you know Christi and her kids Tyler and Alex? My mom used to babysit them when they were little. They and Christi's sisters are the only relatives that my parents saw routinely when I was older, though they did see Grandma's brothers and their wives and occasionally their children from time to time. I think my brother interviewed Thomas when he was a kid for a school project because he had fought in World War II and we used to give them a ton of vegetables all the time from my parents garden.

Who are you related to just out of curiosity?

RE: Hi, cousin!
I don't remember your mom, but as she would have been a teenager when I was a kid, that makes sense! The Blanford's had wonderful childhoods with many sweet memories.

RE: Hi, cousin!
Spent many a day at Aunt Rene and Uncle Dick's. We (Grandma Opal and some of the kids and grandkids) went Christmas caroling there the last Christmas Aunt Rene was alive and all took little gifts. Think she really enjoyed it.

I have a lot of memories of Jody, too. He had such a funny sense of humor despite all of his disabilities. And John Harvey was my age, so we played together a bit growing up... I was wondering where you fit in. Now I know!

RE: Hi, cousin!
Thanks so much for all your help. I deleted my request for a child link and included it in the biographies (I think successfully!) May God reward you; I don't think I could've done it without you.
