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.

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

 
 This is Elijah 'Lige' Stamper;
son of John Wesley and 2nd wife,
Nancy Bowling ... md to Amanda Amis.
 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.
   
 This is my great grandmother,
Loudemia Riley Gilbert and 'moi' ...
My mom told me that whenever she
changed my diaper, she would sit
one leg of the chair on my dresstail
so I could not get away ... how funny!
 
 This is my grandpa, Pearl Stamper;
and his youngest son, John Wess;
and the mules ... Kate and Nell (?)
     
 These are my grandparents,
Pearl and Lydia Gilbert Stamper.
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!
Maxline Stamper and Jacie Combs.
Jacie Combs is the s/o Goley and Adinah Combs Combs
 
and ... me ... Golden
