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.

Vernon, Thank you so much for the memorial on his Vernon. He was part of my family that I have back 21 generations. They were Quakers that came over with William Penn in 1682. He also had a GGG Grandmother that her famiy went back to the Tudor and York families in England. I had looked for him and Lecil but not found them. We believe his family was in Missouri around 1830.

I'm trying to clean up the 2 Floral Hills cemeteries in Jackson County Missouri, 1 in Lee's Summit, and the other in Kansas City.
Lena is actually buried in the Kansas City location. Her memorial is number 85998861.
Would you please remove your memorial? You may verify this with Floral Hills Kansas City.
Thank you,

Hey Mr. Gibbons, Again I have a request. I was in contact with Norma Coles daughter, and all your information is incorrect on Norma's memorial which is #178836506. Her right memorial is listed in her burial spot with her husband. It would be nice if the one you have entered was deleted. Thanks Have a great week-end. Very hot here so stay cool.

Herman Frick 178616085
This memorial is in error. Herman Frick is buried with his wife Alma at the Welch Cemetery in Webster County, Missouri. His memorial there is #178616085. Perhaps you would want to delete this memorial. Thank you.
