In Reply to: Re: Info on Greenberry Gaither family by Joyce Havner of 822

Thank you so much for reading my Posting! Below you will find some of the information I have gaithered on the Gaither Family Line.

To begin with, Atha Gertie Gaither, who EVERYONE who knew her, used the name Gertie. Few people knew that Gertie was NOT her first name. She was my Mother. She, sadly, died at the age of 92 years old, October 10, 2002. I really didn't get very far, try as I did, to gather much information on her Family History. Anything you may have to offer me on the Gaither Line would be greatly appreciated!

Atha Gertieís Father was John Franklin Gaither. He was born September 12, 1867 in Kentucky. He died December 14, 1942 at the age of 73 in Canadian, Oklahoma. John Franklin Gaither had a Sister named Jane, whose married name was Hamby. Mom always remembers age spots on her hand, doesnít remember when she died. John Franklin Gaitherís Fatherís name was Greenberry Gaither. He and his wife (Momís Grandmother and Grandfather) were buried in Culp, Arkansas on their farm, in a pasture, side by side. A white picket fence and headstones mark their graves.

Gertie's Motherís name was Mary Francis Emmett - Gaither, nick name ĎFannyí. She was born January 27, 1890 in Culp Arkansas, it is thought. She died on January 2, 1920 just before her 30th birthday. She was in poor health and it was believed that she died from complications of a miscarriage. Mary Francis Emmetts' Mother died in 1918, before Nov. (Approx.) Mary Francis Emmetís Father died approx. 1945.

Momís Father, John Franklin Gaither had numerous Brothers and Sisters. Only one was remembered. His name was Jerry Gaither. Jerry was 2 years younger than John Franklin. He died in 1942 at age 73. Jerryís wifeís name was Dora. They had 9 kids: Names were:
       1. Dewey - wife was Claude. She died approxmately 1994 from diabetes.
       2. Edna
       3. Edgar - was 2 days younger than Mom, born March 4, 1910.

       5. Walter - They called him Jack.
       6. Ruby
       7. Ruth
       8. Louie
