John Fife (1782-1848) was the progenitor of our Fife family line in the United States. We have conflicting evidence of his parents, so he is as far as we can go back with certainty. It is said that John was born in Alloa, Scotland. His grave is located in the Dellview Cemetery in Hardin County, Kentucky. The grave of John's wife Nancy McGinnis (1788- 1858) is also located here, but her headstone is now lost to the ages.

Dudeboy found this little guy as we cleared the gravesite of dirt, weeds, leaves and such.
