PATE, ATCHLEY, CATLETT

Lula J. PATE-Harrison ATCHLEY-Ella H. ATCHLEY Catlett. Harrison & Lula Pate Atchley were my grandparents. Harrison and Ella Atchley Catlett were siblings. I am seeking information of Lula Pate Atchley, b. KS 1879 m. 1894 in Sevier Co. TN to Harrison Atchley. They left the area after 1900, and eventually lived in Chicago where both died. Ella Atchley Catlett remained in Sevier Co. till her death (after 1968). Information needed is who raised Lula Pate and where. Her mother, Elizabeth S. Pate (spouse Cornelius Pate, both born in TN. per census records) died in KS in 1880. Am wondering if any family members possess any records, letters, etc. that tell of Lula's early life in either KS or TN. Am willing to share any information I have concerning these ancesters.

James ROGERS/RODGERS was born 2 July 1760 in Culpepper Co., VA. James was in Sevier Co., TN in 1788, and in Lincoln Co., TN in 1811. Marriage records of Madison Co., Mississippi Territory show that a James ROGERS married Polly SPEAKS on 17 June 1812. James was in Limestone County, Alabama from 1816 to about 1833 when he shows up in Franklin Co., TN, then in 1837 he is in Pickens Co., AL. He dies in Monroe Co., MS in 1843. In his Will he names his wife, Mary, and children Francis, Julia Ann, Martha, Silas, and Margaret. The wording of the Will—the children of my current wife, Mary—hints at the existence of a former wife and other children. Another query (without sources) indicates that James had a son named Joseph Larkin Rogers, born 21 August 1794 in TN. James ROGERS is a prime suspect for the father of my gg grandfather, Robert M. ROGERS, who was born in TN ca 1794. Can anyone furnish additional clues about the families of James ROGERS.

COWAN

Looking for Andrew COWAN (ca 1755 VA - 1814 KY) m. Mary (possibly ALEXANDER) (? - 1803 KY). Their children -- James (1981 VA - 1835 MO), Matthew (1782 VA - ?), John W. (1783 VA - 1860 KY), Robert C. (1788 - 1843 KY), Isaac (1790 - 1873 MO), Elizabeth A. (1795 - 1855 KY), Samuel (ca 1797 - aft 1860 MO) and Mary Ann "Polly" (1798 - 1856 MO). I suspect that this is the Andrew COWAN who served with Samuel NEWELL on first court for Sevier County in 1796, as they both moved to Lincoln County, KY between 1797 - 1800.

ANDERSON

Joseph C. ANDERSON was in Siever county, Tennessee in 1807. He was given a land grant in 1810 in the same county. He had a son James about ten years old in 1838 or 1839. In 1837 and again in 1838 he and his son James made purchases at a grocery store. There was a Mansfield ANDERSON nearby. There was a great flood in Siever county in 1838. I believe that may have been when Joseph and his family moved to Mississippi. Marcus LaFayette ANDERSON, my gg gf was born in Mississippi March 1, 1840 and he had an older brother James who was born in TN in 1827. So far this is just speculation on my part that Joseph was the father of Marcus.

I have heard that my grandfather (William Dock MCELROY) and his 1/2 brother, (Marion Tipton STANFORD) were raised by STINNETTS or STANHOPES.  My grandfather's death certificate said his mother was ? YAUBERRY.  There is a family in the 1870 census with a William that fits his age. It is the family of Albert Yawberry, age 24;wife Matilda, age 20; William, age 8 (Was this William possibly Albert's brother?)and Mitchell S. age 1/2. They were living in Sevier Co, Dist 1. Another Family was Benjamin STINNETT,age 42; wife Molly, age 38 and 8 children.  One of them was Tipton, age 12.  Our Tipton was born in 1858, so this age fits our Tipton STANFORD. Would like to know more about the above families so that I can confirm or rule out any connection between them and my grandfather and his brother.  Thanks much!!

I'm searching for information on the ancestry of George Washington MIZE 1847-1925.  We believe he came from NC and we know he was living in Sevier County around 1870.  In 1887 he settled in Giles County, TN. His wife was Sallie CHAMBERS daughter of James CHAMBERS also from Sevier County. The above information is documented.  We've been told that his father's name was George C.
