Melvin "Eugene" & Mable Doverspike

Hi, Eugene & Mable are my grandparents. Thank you for this beautiful website, it is so interesting to put people/faces in pictures to actual names in a family tree. You have done an awesome job!
Just FYI on the info you provided above, grandpa & grandma Doverspike did actually have a two story home and farm acreage on Buttermilk Hill - the house still exists today but it is sadly, no longer in the family. I would be happy to share any info you would like on family heritage, if you would like.

Thank you for sharing
