Bio and Links
Bio Photo Picture is my Maternal Grandmother, Ora Belle Blanton Taylor

'Researching' my Ancestry for over 20 years has been my passion! The decision to undertake this endeavor... has been a 'Most' Rewarding experience!! Meeting 'Family' from the 'East' to the 'West' coast.... Making 'lasting' friendships...

What an 'age' we live in!! The way we can communicate and get answers to our research through the 'airwaves'.... My Ancestors did their 'research' by 'snail mail'..... Some still do...

This is an 'amazing' site!! I have found many 'Ancestors' graves through this means... It is the best site to 'link' with your family... and if an 'error' is made... There is a big 'family' out there to help you 'get it right'...

If it had not been for a Find-A-Grave Contributor who I met... searching for my family; I would not have found 'family' who I had been searching for over 8 years... What a 'Joy' it was the day I received the pictures of their 'Grave Stones'....

AND... not to forget the 'Angel', Cathy, who introduced me to my 'Family'... Gave me all of her research documents.. like Marriage licenses, Land Deeds, Death Certificates and more. She 'walked' the cemeteries and documented her findings... I owe her more than I could ever repay and she is not even a 'Family' member.... But she is 'Family' to me..!! Cathy is 'gone' now... Her 'Research' will carry on through many, many Generations....

Been writing a 'Family Story' to pass on to my children. Someday, I hope to write about an amazing little 'community' , In OR, where my roots are and is still a family 'community where all are 'related'... 😇

I Love my 'Family'......

Epperson in Ky
Patti, I found this link to John Epperson and I am trying to find the parents of Mary Ann Epperson Campbell of Madison Co, KY. She was born in VA about 1805 and for her married life lived and died in Madison Co, KY which, while not adjacent to Lincoln Co, is only one county east. Do you have any idea of John's (or his brother's) children other than the one child listed on your findagrave link? We are reasonably sure she married in KY since all of her children were born in Madison Co.
Mary Ann Eperson was my wife's great grandmother but her daughter Susan Eplison Campbell Boyce died fairly young and all we have is the link back to Mary Ann Epperson (1805-1866) and her husband James Campbell (1795-1861)
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated in opening this dead end for us.

RE: Jennie Jacoby Pefley
Nice to meet you cousin, sounds like a very distant cousin but a cousin none the less.

I don't know how many Pefleys there are but I don't think a lot. Jennie's daughter Laura married Ed Detrick (my gr grandparents) and we're not a big family.

I've seen your name out there with the Jacoby's and Myers so it's nice to "meet" you.

Evelyn Margaret Jacoby Rosenberry
Hi, I found record of Russell Oren Jacoby (1883 - 1946)and Emma Grace Baker Jacoby (1881 - 1942)'s daughter Eveleyn. She is the one who married Benjamin John Rosenberry (1905 - 1963)as referenced in the obit on Russell's Find A Grave Memorial# 93200286.

Hope it helps. Russell is my 1st cousin 3x's removed. I also added a few other itmes I cam across, i.e. Death Certificates.

Hi Patti..
I checked Thera's rootsweb page and unfortunately there is no source indicated for the link to parents. I'm looking for a source that I can refer to as proof if questioned on the link sometime in the future by another contributor. If you find such proof, please resubmit to me and I'll be glad to add the links. Thanks!

I came across a website that had some of my relatives names listed and it mentioned book about the Myers & Fishburn Families (published in 1969). Does anyone know where you can find a copy of that book?
