This iris was named after me by my grandfather Ferris D. Gaskill. He also named one for my sister, Charming Coed.

Hello Janet Marie. Paul Gaskill was my Grandfather, and Ferris was his father. We are related! Have we met? My maiden name is Stacy Bataille. I was only 2 years old when Ferris passed away. I never met him. Please contact me.

Hi,
I'm your mother's cousin, so I guess that makes us second cousins(?) I remember when you were just a little peanut! Yes, Ferris was my grandfather and my father, James Gaskill (Paul's brother) would have been your great uncle. My brother, Donald, knows much more about the horticulture end of the family than I do. I just know about the naming of this particular iris Smiling

Janet, do you have any of Ferris's irises? I have Fifty Grand. Can we do some trading?
