I've been researching my family since the late 1980's.|
I'm currently researching several family names including:
Ash, Bynum, Crew, Hefner, Hicks, Montgomery, Perdue, Perryman, Rigsby, Rogers, Rosson, Schmidt, Spangenberg and Wersdoeffer. All of them were in Texas at one time or another.
Most of the memorials I've posted are related to me in some way.
If you find a mistake, have questions or have something to share, let's get acquainted. Please send me a message.

|Rob||RE: Porters - Cave Hill, P-39|
The "unreadable" marker is for Richard Baxter Porter. There is a memorial and a photo taken when it wasn't raining and is legible.

It turns out that there are existing memorials, with photos, for the persons represented by the "other" monuments I photographed. I haven't found one for the "unreadable" marker though. Maybe the plot card would help.

|Rob||Porters - Cave Hill, P-39|
Per your request for a group of Porters in Sec P, Lot 39 at Cave Hill in Louisville, KY:
There are markers for William (d1874) & Matilda (died 1892), Edward (d1902) & Emma (d1940) and their children William Edward & Emma Young (no dates), Clara (d1937, Alice Clifford Porter (d1940), a small unmarked or unreadable baby stone which i have included as Ella, and Thomas & wife Lucie (have forgotten the dates). There is also one for a Porter who died in 1882, but the first name was unreadable in person and on the computer (so far). It does not appear to say "Emma", however. There are no other markers.
Let me know if you want these additional photos added.

Would that cousin be Barbara Rogers by any chance? We have worked together for many years now on family history.
I have been to Joseph Rogers old mill site in Madison county, Arkansas on the stream off the Kings River. I suspect that Rachel is buried at the old campground Cemetery there. Lawsons grave is there and there are unmarked graves around him. I would still love to go explore Rogers bluff there if time should permit. My grandmother Luella Rogers married Joseph Ferrell and his father was raised south of White county at Hurricane Creek of the Caneyfork river north of Smithville in Dekalb co. Tenn.
After Joseph Rogers finished his service in the war of 1812, He obtained a bounty land in Madison county Arkansas. I found information that suggested that he first visited the area on a trip around 1839 and then moved to the area around 1841 to 1842. By the time he moved there with at least two of his sons, he was getting up in years and decided to stay with his sons closer to the Kings River rather than settle his bounty land claim and he let it go. His other sons except for Isaac moved to Johnson County Arkansas which is my line. The Rogers boys in Johnson county operated a saw mill probably near Colony Mountain for some years as well as operating their farms close by.
Joseph Rogers had another son that lived in White county TN named Hiram and he married a woman named Campbell by her maiden name so this is another reason Isaac Rogers born 1801 might be Joseph Rogers son.
One cousin and I are of the belief that Isaac Rogers may be a son of our ancestor Joseph Rogers born 1773 and moved to White co. Tenn from Franklin county, Ga. My g grandfather was Isaac Milton Rogers who was son of William W Rogers born in White county and he was son of John M Rogers of white county and he was son of Joseph Rogers.

I suggested it be removed. We shall see. I agree they rarely delete memorials even if they go against their own policy.
