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

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.

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.

Collins in Goin, Tennessee
Hi again,
Have you ever been in contact with the California Collins'? My father saw a letter from someone in Tennessee years ago who was trying to locate family lineage information. I believe it was addressed to his uncle Elvin Collins who has since passed away. This was well before the helpfulness of the internet sites we enjoy today! My dad would love to go out and see ancestor's graves and possibly meet fellow Collins descendants of Abijah Collins in Tennessee some time.

RE: Abijah Collins
Thanks! Abijah is my third great-grandfather through his son James Matthew, his son Charles Harrison, his son Charles Lionel, his son Johnny (my dad). I am just beginning to search for Melungeon connections and believe we are able to be traced back to Vardy Collins. My dad will be tickled about the painting info!

Abijah Collins
Hello, I am a descendant of Abijah Collins and am curious about the painting (?) of Abijah and Louisa posted on his page. Please let me know if you have other photos of him and/or any other Collins relation.
Thanks so much

Sarah cawood Rogers
Hi, I am also a desendant of Sarah's and have been working on family geneology. I am interested in Sarah's story, she evidently was a very sweet person with an interesting life.
If you have any information regarding her or any writings from her I would greatly appreciate anything that you would share with me. My line is through French, Reuben , Hugh and Hattie
(My grandmother). I have four children and want to share with them thier heritage.
Thank you! Trish Cottone

My Ancestor Elisha Rogers
born 1770-1775 NC- died probably Henry Co Ga where he was found last- aft 1837 has been given on ancestry- twice that I have seen now- as the son of this John Rogers. No proof is given on either-
I wonder if you have a list of his children and any proof?
(And John given a son of Benjamin- again,no proof)
Elisha was in the War of 1812.
My other ancestor James Stanford Aven was born Chatham Co NC to Matilda Rogers dtr of Tobias- proven, and they moved to Perry, Henderson Co Tn, where son J S and two brothers- came to Ga-and he married into this Rogers family-by second wife Mary Hall- Rebecca Rogers. I have worked with them over 30 years. Thanks, Gerry Hill

Hello Kathy if your Lousia had a sister named Marinda Ellen, then she is my grand great aunt. Marinda was my great grandmother.
