She was the mother of Mary Margaret Rogers Harris Powers (1863-1950), and grandmother of Jennie Carlyle Powers Koon (1898-2001).

This a picture of myself, Wiley Emmett Koon, Jr. of Imperial, Polk County, FL and Shirley Marx Morrisett, of Tucson, AZ. We are both the great grandchildren of Mary Margaret Rogers Harris Powers (1863-1950) of Stewart County, TN. I am the great grandson of Mary Margaret and Emmett Powers. Shirley is a descendant of Mary Margaret and Thomas Harris. We are half second cousins. My grandmother was Jennie Carlyle Powers Koon (1898 -2001) and Shirley is a the granddaughter of Grace Harris Watson (1891-1982).
Mary Margaret was the daughter of Mary Ann Tuggle Rogers and Joseph A. Rogers of Stewart County, TN. She was born almost after the Battle of Fort Donelson in Dover, where Grant became the leader of the Union forces in 1862! How miserable it must have been for them!!!
