I am Cecelia Gayhart's grand daughter from Prospect, Ky.
We noticed on your site that my grand mothers obituary does
not mention my mother who is Cecelia Gayhart's only daughter.
My mothers name is Nancy Vanderbur from Prospect, KY.
My mother died before my grand mother.  But I think she should
be mentioned on the site.  They were very close.  I don't know
how she got forgotten in the obituary?  Nancy Vanderbur died February 18, 2003.
Can you please put something in the obituary similar to what you wrote about
Elmer E. Gayhart my grand father?
She had one daughter, Nancy Vanderbur, from Prospect, Kentucky.  Her daughter preceded her in death
February 18, 2003.
