Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been the family historian for my family since about 1992. I love the challenge of finding and adding missing ancestors to my family data file. Hardly a day goes by that I don't work on genealogy in some capacity.

One of my biggest family mysteries is one of my Great Grandfathers, Francis Marion Robinson. He was born abt 1837 in Tennessee. He married Mary Jane Patton 09 Sep 1868 in Pope County, Arkansas. They had two daughters, Samantha A (Born abt 1868) and Mary Elizabeth (Born 07 Jan 1870). I have never been able to find the parents for Francis Marion. If anyone has any info on him please please pass it to me. I am also trying to find where Francis and his wife, Mary Jane are buried. I am hoping one day the info for Francis and Mary Jane will surface at FindaGrave.

In addition to my own family genealogy I am interested in adding memorials to FindaGrave.
I have photographed tombstones in Cemeteries in Marion County,and Linn County,Oregon.

I thought this would be a good way to "pass forward" all the wonderful help I have received from others while working on my own family research.

If you want me to make any changes on a memorial, please go to the memorial and click on the edit button,Please and Thanks you.

Anna Rogers Correction
I need to make a correction in my earlier email. I have the 1870 census in book form which shows the following:

HALE, Preston 19 m w AR Farmer ---/150 School
Anna J. 27 f w AR crw
Malizza 1mo f w AR b:Apr
ROGERS, Mary 19 f w AR School

I noticed however that Ancestry shows Nancy Rogers and when I looked at the actual census it does indeed look like Nancy Rogers. Nancy married into my grandmother's Jones family.

I apologize for that error...thank you.

Anna Rogers Hale
Anna was the daughter of Columbus Chambers Rogers and Cynthia Shipman. She married Preston Hale and they had six children. Information on her birth date is difficult to come by because the only place I have found her age is in census and they do not agree from census to census. She appears to have been born in 1840 according to 1850, 1860 and 187,0 but finally shows up born about 1850 in the 1880 census. I believe she died in childbirth with her last child Catherine. There is no marker for her at Mt. Moriah so dates are speculation at best.
I have been told by family who live in the area and know Mt. Moriah Cemetery very well that there are well over 100 unmarked graves.
Preston Hale remarried in 1884.
Anna did not marry George Washington Terry (1835-1906) and I don't show she was named Indiana. George married Arrena Jones (ca 1836-aft Aug 1870) and then Sarah Elizabeth Ann Wilson. I have legal documents from the Scott County Courthouse proving George's wife was Arena Terry.
Saline Co. Deed Book E, pg 54
George Terry and his wife Arena of Scott Co. AR sold his 1/3 interest in his father's land W1/2 of NE1/4 S21 T1S R17W for $100.00 to John C. Henderson on 27 Dec 1854. George and Arena signed by mark.----------------------
George and Arrena's first child was born ca 1856
1860 Hunt Twp., Olio P.O., Scott Co., AR
# 172/166
TERRY George 25 m AR farmer---/250
Arina 22 f AR
Polly A. 3 f AR
Margaret M. 2 f AR
1870 Census - Scott County, Arkansas
Hunt Township
Terry, George W. 36 mw AR
Aerealy 34 f w AR
Polly An 14 f w AR
Margaret M 10 f w AR
Mary 3 f w AR
Teensey 1 f w AR
Jones, Emeran H. 24 f w AR
William T. 2 m w AR

In this census Arrena's name was mis-spelled and notice her sister Emeranda and son were living with Arrena and George.
George remarried Sarah Elizabeth Ann Wilson Welch about 1874. He died either 1906 or 1907 (I have found both years in records).
Anna Rogers age is harder to determine. Two censes would have her born in about 1840 and the 1880 census in 1850.

1870 Hunt Twp #52/52
Hale, Preston 19
Anna J. 27 (note: her age was probably wrong - more like 17)
Malizza 1 mo
Mary Rogers 19
1880 (June 3) James Twp., Scott Co., Arkansas
HALE, Preston H W M 29 Md Farmer; Cannot write AR VA MO
HALE, Annie W F 30 Md Kp house; Can't Read/Write AR VA MO
HALE, Melissa W F 9 S [son scratched out] AR AR AR
HALE, Nancy J W F 7 S AR AR AR
HALE, James N W M 7 S AR AR AR
HALE, Dolphus L W M 4 S AR AR AR
HALE, John P W M 4/12 AR AR AR

You will notice George and Arrena are married with children and living in Hunt Township in 1870. Preston and Anna are also living in Hunt Township in 1870 with one child and her sister/nephew in their household.

There is no doubt that Anna Rogers was never married to George Washington Terry. I know what Alden Smith printed in his book. I also know where he got the info because I have copies of their correspondence. I knew Mr. Smith and his widow had me index his research materials to give to the Scott County Historical Society.

I have carefully studied the people of Scott County, Arkansas for many years; I was born there and all of my dad's family has resided there primarily since the mid-1840s.

I'm happy to help anyway I can. Don't hesitate to ask. Thanks for correcting the info on Find A Grave.
