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! :)

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.

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.

RE: Hi, cousin!
Okay, I didn't get it right the first time. Saw another example and understood a little better. Would you be willing to link my grandparents to the boys?

RE: Hi, cousin!
Wow, you're quick! Thanks for the advice. I didn't really like the option of listing them as children because, like you said, it's not accurate. I haven't tried the linking yet, but I'm going to give it a try. I'm a techno dummy, so my chances are about 50/50.

RE: Powell-Raymond
That is great about you guys wanting to clean Brickwall up. Maybe you all will uncover more graves. Thats what I hope to do when I go back to Powell this fall. I have finished posting all the photos I took. It says 60% photographed which is of course a lot better than the 2% it was lol. I added two memorials also that must not have been in the cemetery book.
