Update about blog

Come on over to my other blog, Alchemy of Clay and Living in Black Mountain NC, where the scenery and my ceramic arts life are combined. I've moved some personal blog posts, (as well as those that are about my ancestors) back here.

Anniversary for Cyntha Cannon Rogers 1800 birth

Cyntha Cannon Rogers was born 24 Aug 1800, was wife of Micajah Clack Rogers, and died 24 Nov 1855 in Huntsville, Walker, Texas, US.

I've already posted last year some findings (and frustrations) from Ancestry, HERE.

But she had also been listed when a distant cousin applied to become a DAR member (Daughters of the American Revolution) back in the 1950s.  So I've heard of her at least as soon as I read my grandfather's copy of that information in the 60s.

Now I'm going to give her a proper look.

Her parents were
Catherine Henderson, born in 1778 in North Carolina, died: 15 Nov 1827 in Athens, McMinn, Tennessee
William Henry Cannon; born 28 Nov 1771 in Cumberland, Virginia, died: 11 Jun 1868 in Sevier, Tennessee

And Catherine Henderson's parents were: 

Mary Catherine Beavers born abt 1750 and died after 1786
William Henderson.  He was born probably in 1741 in Virginia.  He died in Sevier County, TN, date unknown.

William Henry Cannon's parents were:
John Cannon, born 18 Mar 1744 in Caswell, North Carolina; died Oct 1806 in Grass Valley, Knox, Tennessee
Nancy Ann Whitlow, born 18 Nov 1747 in Caswell, North Carolina, and died 01 Jul 1830 in Knox County, Tennessee.  More about her was posted HERE.

Today I discovered 2 siblings perhaps of Cyntha's mother's (Catherine Henderson.)
