I am a descendant of many early settlers in East Tennessee. Some were settlers in the US in the 1600s and others arrived in the early 1700s

During a trial membership, I found the majority of my personal old family photos were grabbed and added to member trees. I do this out of love for my Ancestors and do not appreciate the taking of what does NOT belong to you!!! I will however share them with family, just please ask first as these are part of more than 30 years of research.

I have worked a lot on my Beeler line. Daniel Beeler and his wife Rachel Cawood Rogers were the ancestors of the majority of Beeler descendants in Union County Tennessee. Two of their sons, David and James, fought for the Union during the Civil War.

Names in my heritage include Beeler, Walker, Collins, Stiner, Graves, Houston, Keck, McBee, Owsley, Goin, Rogers, Cawood, Petree, Lewis, Ausmus, Bolinger, Price and many others. I am extremely proud of my ancestors and the people they were.

Known Revolutionary War Grandfathers include: Israel McBee, John Owsley, John Rogers, Benjamin Rogers (John's Father) Solomon Lewis, Conrad (Coonrod) Keck, Henrich Keck (Conrad's Father) Edward Walker Sr., Thomas Goin, Jacob Graves, Benjamin Price, and Peter Stoner (family spelling now is Stiner).
