History in Newport

| History | 0 Comments

An interesting article appeared on the Citizen Tribune Web site today and I am mentioned a couple of times believe it or not.

It goes something like this:

-----
In doing more research, I came across another Kiffin with a different last name. As it turns out, there is still a link between the two.

The Web site, www.cyber-gish.com, is the home page of Rockwell's namesake, Kiffin Gish.

At this site, Gish says he was named for the WWI pilot and created the Web page as a tribute to the American hero.

"If he had not sacrificed his life for world freedom, I would have had a different name," Gish said.

His said his father discovered the name, "Kiffin," while reading "They Fought for the Sky," by Quentin Reynolds only months before he was born.
