 John Wesley Stamper

This is my gr gr grandfather.
John was married to (1)Agnes 'Aggie' Turner; (2) Nancy Bowling, both of Breathitt County, KY
If you look close enough, you can
see a 'twinkle in his eye ... just
wondering what he was thinking :-)
 This is my grandfather, Pearl Stamper. Beside him is his sister, Jalia;
and seated is their father,
William Stamper. This was the
last time 'Bill' had his feet on the
ground. Jalia was grandpa's only
sibling. She married Charlie Gilbert,
a brother to Lydia ... my grandmother!

 Pearl and Lydia's mothers. My great grandmothers.

 This is my great grandmother, Loudemia Riley Gilbert

changed my diaper, she would sit one leg of the chair
on my dresstail so I could not get away ... how funny!
     
 These are my grandparents,

Everyone should have grandparents like mine ... (and may have ... :-)). My grandmother never had an ill word for anyone. Grandpa had the kindest heart; and loved his family!

'Lige's Store'
 
Still standing .... about 1 mile from the intersection of 315/30 (going towards Booneville, Owsley County); across
the road from the Stamper Cemetery.

 This was 'Lige's Store' I remember my grandpa driving his team of horses and sled down the creekbed; onto the
graveled road down to Lige's. He would always get me a 5 cent Baby Ruth candybar or a cup of Chappell's ice
cream; and I would ride home sitting on the 50lb bags of flour, etc.
