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.

I see you have duplicated my memorial of a dear friend. You have that she is buried at Fairview Cemetery which is not correct. I am asking you very kindly to please delete your duplicate of Dixie. You should always check and see if a memorial has been made before entering another.

I remember when you would answer all requests. I am wondering if you are sick, is the reason that you aren't answering these requests. I am very sorry if so. I will be praying for you and healing. God bless you and your wife.

duplicate 3rd request
I haven't heard back from you, either via email or by the public msg I left for you a few weeks ago. You duplicated a memorial already created for my immediate family, John Weimer 178559341. Please delete your memorial. Appreciate it.

Mr. Gibbons, I am sure I have duplicated Edward Charles LaRue's memorial as I was waiting to make it on his birthday,which is May 6. He and his wife were special people to Salida, Co. Enjoyed knowing them very much. Lovely Christian people, and they always sang praises to the Lord. God bless them as they sing praises to the Lord in Heaven.
