Importance of family history was instilled in me at a very young age. I have and know a lot of history on my side of the family. However, my husband side, the Gilly/Gilley family from Southwest Virginia Big Stone Gap area, we did not have much until recently. My fathers family was Habegger. His mother was a Roth. My mothers family was Hinkle. Her mother was a Dedrick from Southern Indiana.
Aaron Lee Dedrick Hello! I noticed that you requested a photo of any military plaque/marker that may be present at the grave of Aaron Lee Dedrick. There was not a military plaque on the back of the stone, nor was there any other marker signifying military association. I was able to capture a photo of his stone though and have since uploaded this per your request. Hope this helps!

W F Mason By any chance, do you know anything about this person? I can not find a death certificate for him either. I can not find anyone with the last name of Mason dying in that year. I even checked Ky and Tenn. Do you know any way or any one that could help?
WF Mason Could you please give me directions to this cemetery? Gilley Cemetery in Wise Va. This could possibly be my Great Grandfather. The dates seem in line with what I know. I have been looking for about 15years for him.
