Please ask permission before using any of my posts for other publications. I usually will say yes. This site is my family tree, or genealogy blog. Any errors are probably due to my own confusion, so I welcome comments. Or if you want to see my pottery stop by Alchemy of Clay. My photos of Living in Black Mountain NC extend to wherever I go. My own life and some history is shared at When I was 69.

Getting onto my Rogers Tree from the Whitlows of Virginia


Constantine and Ann Pollard Perkins had a daughter, 

Elizabeth Perkins

1724–1798

Who, according to Constantine's will, married a Mr. Ellis, not Mr. Whitlow.  So she and they weren't my ancestors.

However, there was a wife for Mr. Witlow...and for now she is unknown.  I will look for more documents that have some source 
materials.  There were so many lost in early Virginia!

Mr. Whitlow was...

Henry Othello Whitlow

1724–1788

Birth ABT 1724 Henrico, Virginia

Death 21 JUL 1788 Goochland, Goochland, Virginia

and Mrs. Whitlow had a daughter 

Nancy Ann Whitlow Cannon [see posts HERE and here]

1747–1830

Birth 18 NOV 1747 Goochland County, Virginia

Death 01 JUL 1830 Loudon County, Tennessee

who married:

William Henry Cannon [see post Here]

1771–1868

Birth 28 NOV 1771 Cumberland, Virginia

Death 11 JUN 1868 Sevier, Tennessee

So that couple became closer to my more known ancestors, since they lived and died in Sevier County, TN.

Their daughter Cyntha Cannon, married Micajah Clack Rogers. 

Cyntha CANNON ROGERS [see posts HERE and Here]

1800–1855

Birth 24 AUG 1800 Sevier, Tennessee, United States

Death 24 NOV 1855 Huntsville, Walker, Texas

married:

Micajah Clack ROGERS [see post HERE]

1795–1873

Birth 7 MAY 1795 Sevier, Tennessee, United States

Death 15 FEB 1873 Huntsville, Walker, Texas

and thus the George Rogers line moved west to Texas.  Micajah and Cyntha were my  great times 3 grandparents.

Today's quote:

Edward Sullivan (TV host), said his formula for success was, “Open big, have a good comedy act, put in something for children, and keep the show clean.”
