RE: My Ancestor Elisha Rogers
Hi Gerry, I understand your frustration where John Rogers children are concerned. I live in Union County Tennessee and by water, it's not a long distance from where John Rogers settled in the Powell Valley area of Claiborne County. Most reports I've read state he had up to 25 children from 3 wives but like you, I've found no proof. My line comes from his oldest son William who also settled in Powell Valley along with a brother Major David Rogers. No records I've found ever show a wife living here with him, but early records were lost in a fire at the Courthouse. There is a book on the Rogers family in the Claiborne County Library but I don't know how much of the information was confirmed and it seems a lot of the facts stated in books and elsewhere state things as "family tradition". I used to have a few pages copied from the book but that was many years ago. If I can find it, I'll let you know. Meanwhile here is a website I check sometimes which list most of his children and does give some references.

One of the memorials is already linked to the parents & husband. It was originally made Jan. 10, 2011 & later transferred to you and the other one you made Jan. 6, 2011. The obit says she's buried in the Methodist cemetery & that's the memorial already linked up with the parents.

Was it that you have 2 memorials for her-one in Baptist & one in Methodist cemetery? # 63993941 and 63806687.

Or maybe I have the wrong Ellen Neisler.

It has been sent to edit for merging
Hello Gerry,
As I mentioned in my previous email I have sent the links for both memorials to edit@ find a grave. They will merge them. I have the correct cemetery and a grave marker photo. Yes, I have read the guidelines numerous times and a burial in the correct location is the goal of Find a Grave. The other memorial is a burial unknown. When you create a memorial from a grave marker photo you search the cemetery where you find the marker. You don't do a global search. Remember, the goal is to record the actual burial site . A burial unknown is only suppose to be for 30 days and at that time the burial location should be known .

This is from the frequently asked questions.... In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location. If a case of duplicate memorials falls to the Administration, the Administration will have the final word on which memorial is deleted and which data will be retained in the remaining memorial page. I have 14 memorials in Efergreen for the family name of Swearingen.

It is at edit now and they will do the merging.
