Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of western NC, a semi-retired educator, book, nature, and animal lover, gardener, collector of vintage children's books, artist, photographer, and proudly addicted to genealogical research.

Our lineage includes the following family names, listed alphabetically: Black, Blount, Brickey, Brooke, Burnet, Cable, Caffee, Carringer, Chapman, Colt, Crisp, Dennis, Dewey, Fauntleroy, Folger, Fye, Gaylord, Gordon, Hardy, Henderson, Hickman, Hoffman (or Hoffmann), Hogle, Hogue, Hoyne, Irish, Jenkins, Keyser, Knott, Kreider, Leslie, Lovin (or Loving), Lull, Lynd, MacDonald, Macy, McCallum, McClure, McCray, Mease, Messer, Mosteller, Odom, Owenby, Peale, Penland, Phelps, Quinn, Robbins, Rogers, Schnebly, Snow, Staughton, Stuman, Swem, Temple, Williamson, and Wright.

Many, many thanks to my fellow Gravers who have stopped by the memorials for my parents, my husband's parents, and any other members of our family and left flowers and notes. You are wonderful people!

Due to my husband's recent health problems, I am unable to be at FAG as often as I would like, but will get back into the groove asap.

RE: Ty Ling
Truly my pleasure. Many special people here have sponsored my fur babies. I have lost too many this past year. But, as sad as it is, there are cruel and uncaring people that throw their animals out and fortunately they find their way to my house! I recently saved a tiny little kitten from a well. I really didn't think he would live but he's doing great now. He's a ginger and I've named him Kevin. Take care.

RE: Robert Bruce Carringer
It is always an honor to leave a flower for my friends family, loved ones and friends. I know how you feel. My Daddy's birthday is this coming Wednesday. It seems like there is always a Birthday or Angel Day of a loved one. But I am glad we have this site to pay tribute to them.

Brenda, Your message "a Place in Time" by your cousin C. G. Williamson, with Chapter on Gribble Trek to Colorado. Where can I obtain a copy of this Chapter? I have researched the Gribble family for over 35 years. I was the first to prove lineage to Thomas Gribble for DAR membership. John G. Gribble was a special brother to my 3rd great grandmother Sarah Gribble wife of Thomas S. Monteith. I have copies of letters Sarah and Thomas and their son John wrote to John G. Gribble in 1844 in MO and 1852 and 1866 in OR. Betty Andrews
