Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a descendant of many early settlers in East Tennessee. Some were settlers in the US in the 1600s and others arrived in the early 1700s

NOTE TO ANCESTRY MEMBERS: During a trial membership, I found the majority of my personal old family photos I uploaded to Memorials grabbed and added to member trees without mention of where they came from! I do this out of love for my Ancestors and do not appreciate the taking of what does NOT belong to you!!!

I have worked a lot on my Beeler line. Daniel Beeler and his wife Rachel Cawood Rogers were the ancestors of the majority of Beeler descendants in Union County Tennessee. Two of their sons, David and James, fought for the Union during the Civil War.

Names in my heritage include Beeler, Walker, Stiner, Graves, Houston, Keck, McBee, Owsley, Goin, Rogers, Cawood, Petree, Lewis, Ausmus, Bolinger, Price and many others. I am extremely proud of my ancestors and the people they were.

Known Revolutionary War Grandfathers: Israel McBee, John Owsley, John Rogers, Benjamin Rogers (John's Father) Solomon Lewis, Conrad (Coonrod) Keck, Henrich Keck (Conrad's Father) Edward Walker Sr., Thomas Goin, Jacob Graves, Benjamin Price, and Peter Stoner (family spelling now is Stiner).

Known Grandfathers War of 1812:
William Rogers and son David Rogers, and Michael Shoffner

Known Civil War Grandfathers:
David Rogers Beeler 8th TN Volunteer Infantry Company C---Union Fifer
Abijah Collins 1st TN Volunteer Infantry Company C---Union Private
Richard Burgess 62nd North Carolina Infantry Company A---Confederate Private

John Rigdon Civil War Books
Hello Kathy,
I had to hunt for the link, but found a hundred images of CSA men online. Use the title of this reply to find the link and select images. Rigdon has published many books , such as Soldiers from GA, TN, and SC as examples.
I hope this helps. Best.

Soldier photos
Hello Kathy,
About 20 years ago a Mr Rigdon collected photos of Confederate Soldiers in order to conserve the history of rare photos. A book was produced. Since then anything could have happend, but the good news is the images remain and possibly forever. Best, Jeff

Hiya. My great grandmother was Esther Beeler, daughter of William Harrison Beeler. I have a photo I have never been able to identify, but it looks a lot like Daniel Beeler there.

Tennessee ancestors
I just read your bio ... I really need to add mine. We are probably cousins! I have Beeler, Rogers, Cawood and Lewis ancestors, in addition to Monday, Lane, McNew, and connections to most of the other names you list.

Have you done a DNA test?

RE: Major David Rogers Cemetery
Thanks, Kathy. I do not know where her father is buried (he was my Grandma's brother). I put her mother's Find A Grave link in edits.

I will probably have lots more edits, as I am related to most of the people buried there.

F M Stiner obit
Hi Kathy! Happy Thanksgiving! I wanted to contact you here in advance that I'm sending an obit to you via email for F. M. Stiner. I was afraid it would get dumped into your spam folder and you'd never see it.

Hope it will help

Kathy--I do hope you get these suggestions to the ROGERS cemetery. I fear I have sent a lot for your consideration. I have no kin here but enjoy the mystery of it. Anna's marker says wife of JESSE. If she was married to Henderson AND Jesse, I believe the one in the ROGERS cemetery off Dairy Lane is the correct fit. He was born 1811 and died 1888. Respectfully, Joe Maryville, TN

I have not yet uploaded the photos for that cemetery.
