Lillian Hamilton Gobble
Lillian, also a Wise County native, grew up near Wise and attended Wise High school. Lil is extremely knowledgeable on Wise County Families and genealogy and seldom is there a visitor to the Historical Society whom she cannot help trace their family.
Lillian and her husband Bill has copied many Marriage and Death records from Wise County Court files and housed them in notebooks for the Historical Society Archives.
Lil is instrumental in locating and erecting stones for Wise County’s Civil War soldiers and spends hours documenting their service and ordering their stones from the Veteran’s Administration.
Lil, along with Rhonda Robertson is currently working on a book of the Wise County Civil War Veterans, our next project. She also serves as chairman of our Cemetery Committee, organized to locate, document and mark the graves of Civil War Soldier and early settlers.
Lillian Volunteers time at the Historical Society office. Her sincere effort in helping with research comes through to the researchers and they never forget her.
