Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my ancestors and many East Tennessee families for over 30 years. I have worked in consultation with the East Tennessee Historical Society and made contributions to the Calvin M. McClung Historical Collection in order to preserve the work and contributions of Andrew K. Gregory to the establishment of the Smoky Mountain National Park.

My fondness for genealogical research and my interest in research methodology were some of the motivating factors in pursuing a PhD. This early research background served me well in my studies. My greatest passion, however, is the preservation and upkeep of historical cemeteries. It is important that these cemeteries are preserved for future generations, so that the story of our nations early pioneers can be told.

I am related to the following families:

Mother's Side: Flynn (Flinn), Gregory, Oliver, Hatcher, Stafford, Gann, Headrick, Carver, Burchfield, Thurman, Davis, and Hodge.

Father's Side: Huskey, Ogle, Trotter, Emert, McCarter, Ownby, Haggard, Reagan, and Koone (Koontz).

My wife, on the other hand, has a more impressive genealogy. She is a Chenery. She is a descendant of many of the first families of Virginia, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. In fact, she is related to the Chenery family who owned the Triple Crown winning horse, Secretariat. She is also a direct descendant of Roger Williams who founded Providence, Rhode Island, and who is considered the father of the Baptist denomination in America. Also, she is related to great historical figures, such as Chief Justice John Marshall and President Thomas Jefferson. I have been fortunate that many of her ancestors have already been traced with extensive documentation.

Note: It is never my intention to duplicate memorial entries. If you notice a duplicate and your memorial was entered first, I will be more than willing to delete the one I entered.

Frederick E. Davis Collection:
Hello Dr. Everhart,

My name is Bruce D. Frail, I am doing a research project on the Mississippi River Squadron with a emphasis on the men from Rhode Island. This brings me to Frederick E. Davis. I saw your Bio on him in which you mentioned the Frederick E. Davis collection. Could you share the location of the collection with me so I can digitize the collection to use with my project?

Thank you, Bruce

Hello, May I inquire as to which of Russell's children is your direct ancestor? You said Lula Angeline Gregory but I do not have her listed in my tree.
Thank you,

Law Memorials
Hi, I am a grand daughter of William Arthur & Nora Elizabeth (Gregory) Law (buried at Mountain View Cemetery in Blount County. I noticed in your bio that you are related to some of my ancestor lines (Gregory, Carver) I am assuming your ancestors were from Cades Cove.
If you have no objections I would like to maintain my grandparents memorials.
Thank you,
Cathy (Law) Jenkins

Thomas Wesley Cogdill
Hi My name is Melissa and I am helping a friend of mine with her family tree. Her name is Diane Cogdill, and her great grandfather is Thomas Wesley Cogdill. You have added to find a grave his name from Williamsburg Cemetery in Sevier Co., Tenn. Diane went there this week and she could not find his grave and I was wondering if you have a picture of the cemetery and where it might be. She found his wife Julia but not Thomas. Thanks so much, Melissa
