Granville Lee Pippin and Frona kirby were married about 1902.32 Frona kirby32 was born on 8 May 1886 in Moss, Clay County, Tennessee.32 She died on 15 September 1937 at the age of 51 in Anna, Warren County, Kentucky.32 My dad is my walking, living history book. He is 82 and has been telling us
"Pippin" stories for years. He never varies when telling a story---always the
same. I can't begin to tell you how I will miss him when he's no longer with
us. I never tire of hearing him tell of the old days no matter how often he re-
peats the stories.

He has told us how his mother's (Frona Kirby) family objected to her marry-
ing his father (Granville) because of the difference in their ages. He was born
in 1868 and she in 1886--- 18 years apart. Before I began to research the
family history, Dad taught me a trick to remember the years of their births.
Just switch the last two digits. Course, now I know them by heart.
