Bio and Links
Bio Photo The link below will take you to my sister's posting at Rootsweb. I have been researching my family for a little over 15 years now. However, I cannot take credit for all the info in my data file. As is usually the case with researchers, I have been blessed to have much help along the way. I now try to "pass it forward" whenever I can...and is why I have made my file available on the Internet.

Presently my main focus is on my Rogers family. I descend from two separate lines of Rogers. One line, James A. Rogers, connects to my father's family and the other, Drupina Rogers, to my mother's family. DNA results confirm that these are two unrelated Rogers family lines.

I have seven grandmothers of various degrees of "greats" that I am trying to connect to their ancestors; 1.Lizzie Brown (Wife of John Washington Nail), 2.Permelia Hogg (Wife of Christopher Cooper), 3.Sarah Elizabeth Holloway (Wife of James A. Rogers, 4.Sarah Graves (Wife of David Jackson Selph), 5.Eliza W. Lock (Wife of Moses Woodward)and 6. Drupina Rogers (Wife of John M. Cooper)7. Sarah Bradley (Wife of John M. Burton.

I currently have the female mtDNA tests in progress for Lizzie Brown, Permelia Hogg, Drupina Rogers and Sarah Bradley. I am still trying to find a directline female descendant to do the test for Sarah Graves, Eliza W. Lock & Sarah Elizabeth Holloway. Any help to find these descendants would be very much appreciated.

I am working with several Rogers descendants that are from the Everett Rogers line. Using the female mtDNA testing I was able to prove that my Drupina Rogers was the daughter of Everett's first wife...though her name is unknown at the time. I also work with several Cooper descendants that are hoping to find the ancestors for Permelia Hogg as she is our direct line.

If you should have any information on any of the above women please contact me. You can view what I have on them at my Rootsweb posting.

Requests for photos at St Joseph NEW Cemetery in Cincinnati
I note that you have requests for photos at Saint Joseph NEW Cemetery in Cincinnati.

There are over 650 requests for photos on in this cemetery. There are only a couple of us filling these requests.

Unless we have the Section, Lot, Range, Grave of these, we will be unable to locate the lot to see if there is a grave marker.

To have a chance I suggest that you get the information from the Saint Joseph Genealogy website at:

Andrew Sheets and Mary Shearer
Have you had any luck verifying her parents. I see a whole lot of us have William Christian Shearer and Hannah Hoover. Someone sent me a note saying:

Just wanted to let you know that the Mary Shearer you have on your tree who married Andrew Sheets is not the daughter of William Christian Shearer.
He had a daughter named Mary, but she married a William Powers and she died in Ellis, Texas.
I descended from William Christian Shearer's son Daniel. I love genealogy research, but it sure can get confusing at times!

RE: Albert George & Rebecca McCuan Rogers
Sandra ok I have 3 Rodgers photos I think one is the William B Rogers but he is with his wife Sara and then there is a Bud Rodgers maybe the stone maker spelled the last name wrong or maybe they decided to spell their name that way do you have any info for them and if you want the memorials I will transfer them to you.

Sandra, I think you may have a mistake here. This Sarah does not appear to be related in any way to George and Jane Fields of Montague County, TX. I'd love to compare notes.

William Silas Rodgers
I would like to thank you for all the information you posted to William Silas Rodgers's memorial page. He is my great-great-great grandfather, via his daughter Laura Sue Rodgers Walters. I just wanted to say "THANKS" and let you know that I have linked Laura's memorial page to his.

William Rogers born 1763
I visited the grave of William Rogers born 1763 and died 1821/1822 with a cousin this past summer. It is located in White Co. TN. He does not have a tombstone only a mound with rocks placed like a mosaic picture all over it. Susannah his second wife is buried by him, but she does have a very unique tombstone.

This William, Sr. buried in White Co. is the father of William, Jr. who is buried in Chapel Hill Cemetery in Dunlap, TN and died in 1849. You have the picture of the second tombstone on this site. It does not have any dates only a reference to his work in the Methodist Churches in the Valley. This tombstone was made to replace the old slab tombstone which apparently did have dates according to Peacock in her book on Methodists.
