Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on genealogy for about 25 years. I just found out about Find A Grave a few months ago. What a handy tool this is. I enjoy going around to different cemeteries looking at all the old headstones, and taking pictures for people who might not every see the headstonesof there ancestors if someone didn't take pictures for them.

If anyone finds an error, please let me know and I will correct it. Also anyone who would like to add something, I can also do that for you.

For over 15 years I have been seriously researching my Gibbons family, with a beginning origin in South Carolina (Joseph Franklin Gibbons 1839 and still searching for information prior to that), also researching the Paris family (Rhoda Catherine Paris) from Spartanburg, South Carolina and the Giles families from that area.

From there the search has taken me into Harlan and Bell Counties in Kentucky, and surrounding counties in VA & TN, later on to Rockcastle and Lincoln Counties in KY also. In KY families that connect with our Gibbons are: Fee's, Green, Burkhart, Hensley, Wynn, Wilson and more.

My grandfather Andrew Jackson Gibbons was born in SC, was raised and married Margaret Fee in Harlan County KY. They raised their family in Lee Co. VA. Andrew Jackson Gibbons brothers are, James Giles, John Giles, Spurgeon Gibbons, Willie Gibbons, Campbell Gibbons, Frank Gibbons II and Nathan Gibbons. No known sisters.

If anyone has information of any of these families I would be very appreciative of anything you are willing to share.

I am also working on a register for Rose Hill Cemetery in Robinson, Kansas.

Shame on you for not honoring the Bradley families wishes for you to delete your memorial and allow the one I had personally created with the guidance of the family to remain. Instead you merged my information with your generic memorial which you took from her newspaper obituary. You overstep boundaries and should not be allowed to be a contributor on find-a-grave.

Thank you for posting the photo of Monroe on his memorial. I'm sure I didn't thank you before, because I just noticed it this morning. What a great picture of him; such a nice man he was. Thank you! I'm not related to him; just know him from living in Tipton.

Are you still active? I requested a memorial be moved from one cemetery to the correct cemetery back in April.

The memorial is # 140090686.

You have him in the wrong Wilder Cemetery. He is in this Wilder Cemetery. Here is the link. The correct cemetery has about 51 memorials in it. I did a complete inventory and posted photos.

Wilder Cemetery, Miracle, Bell County, KY.
