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.

Hi Vernon,
While visiting Kansas last week, I might have found a duplicate you made 2 days after the original was posted in Glenwood Cemetery, Leavenworth County, Kansas.

Mr. Gibbons, This memorial is another of your duplicates. Check before posting, and please delete your memorial. Do you know this wonderful lady?

Mr. Gibbons,
You have burial site wrong. The memorial that has been entered is a relative to Jim Close.

James Close is my son-in-laws dad. I am wanting to place a memorial for Jim, AND SEE THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY COPIED THE OBIT AND PLACED A MEMORIAL. (Could you possibly delete yours) so I can add him to his family. Will wait to do so later, when my son in law and family give me some info..
Thank you.

Son's Memorial
Hi, I just completed my son's (Jesse Paul Adams) bio here at Find A Grave and see where you have already posted one. I would like to manage my son's memorial (the one that I submitted and have posted). .... Your memorial has his birth date has being Jan. 5 (it's Oct. 5th) and you have him buried in Roselawn Cemetery. I buried him at Gypsum Hill Cemetery. I'd be grateful if you would you please cancel out yours.

Jesse's Dad,
Greg L. Adams
