There are pieces of John Jesse Lee Gaskey's story that I need to firm-up, but the information you have is correct. He was checking his fish traps on Second Creek in western Rowan county at the time of his death. I've heard that he spent some of his childhood living with relatives so he may not have been in the home at the time the census was taken and the 1890 census did not survive. He married my grandmother, Ada Rufty, around 1910.
Yes, please contact me and I'll try to answer any questions you have.
