History in Newport

| History

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.

(A very special thanks goes to Kim LoBrillo for getting in touch with me about this. Check it out yourself).
