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.

Pricy Holloway
Pricy Holloway was my great-great grandmother. I saw you wanted information about Sarah Elizabeth Holloway. I am not sure if I am any relation to her or if my relation to Pricy is helpful.

Andrew Jackson Hunter
Have you found out any more information on AJH? He is my GGGGrandfather and his mother was Margaret Hunter from SC. I don't know a lot about her either. I do know that the family doesn't know who his father was but it was rumored he was Native American. AJH was sent from SC to AL to be raised by relatives. Any other info you may have found would be great to see. Thank you for the memorial on him and Lovey Anne Summerlin and family.

Elizabeth Bourne
I saw your request for a pic of Elizabeth's headstone.
Back then when she died women didn't have any rights and were not valued like a man was.😟
She is buried by her husband but no headstone was put on her grave. The foot stone of her husbands grave is the only marking of her grave.😢

Have a great day😀

Amy Jackson
Sadly Amy's grave is unmarked. I have previously photographed all markers in block 16 at Rose Hill Cemetery, and unable to find a marker for Amy.

RE: Jacob Sheets
Jacob Sheets is also my direct ancestor and I live in the area of the cemetery. I was at the grave in the last few months. Thank you for the message. I would gladly add anything you send.
