My dad was actually born at home on King Street in Bristol, VA, a mile from where the Geico Gecko does his commercial.
My Uncle & cousin are from Christiansburg. My Uncle James "Buddy" Earp was a Superintendent & Principal in the area. My cousin Jim Earp sells cars at the Nissan dealership in Town. A cousin Lisa Earp Sandridge is a Roanoke resident and involved in education too. - Steve (wyatt55)
