I have been researching my own family tree for several years. The family lines that I am interested in include: Campbell, Helton, Phipps, Dinsmore/Dunsmore, Leger/Legier, Engle, Logan, Gaines/Gain, Wilbourne/Wilburn. I will deeply appreciate any information that I receive about the Phipps, Gaines/Gain, and Wilbourne/Wilburn family lines. They have proven to be the most elusive people and the tallest brick wall I have ever tried to climb!
I never knew either set of my grandparents! All four people were dead before I was born and my father’s (Campbell) parents’ were dead before my father and mother married. Plus, he was seventeen years older than my mother. My father died when I was about five and a half years old, we moved away from Eastern Kentucky where my father’s family lived and my mother’s house and all family pictures burned - all of this has made it especially difficult to trace some of my ancestors.
