This is my first attemp at ever doing anything like this, so any help that someone may give me is greatly appreciated. My grandfather who has been deceased for a number of years and who hardly knew his own family do to his mother's early tragic death, and the fact that he was an illegitimate child by John Trebble Bryant from Rockcastle Kentucky, was born to a Mary Jessie Higinbothem. There is two different spellings of this name on his birth certificate (Higinbothem and Hicinbatheu). His birth certificate mentions that she was from somewhere near Hawthorne in Campbell County, Kentucky, and that he had an uncle by the name of J. H. Hicinbatheu. I am in the process of trying to get the correct spelling of this name from the cemetary where Mary Jessie is buried. My father and his family know absolutely nothing about her or her family and would desperately love for some information on her. I do know she died in Germantown, Ohio and is supposedly buried at the Higinbothem's?? family plot. She would have been born in 1882 or 1883.
