Many years ago, before the current 5 digit ZIP code system came into effect, a Mrs. Minnie (STEWART) ROGERS, 419 McCallie Avenue, Chattanooga 3, Tenn., donated data about her STEWART ancestors to the Stewart Clan Magazine, which ceased to publish in the 1950s or so. The full collection of SCM issues was later published as Tomes, and is available in libraries' genealogy collections in hard back. In Tome E, on p. 136, it is stated: "Mrs. Rogers has lent us her large collection of STEWART data, gathered from many sources."
I and fellow STEWART family researchers who believe Mrs. ROGERS' data is pertinent to our search, would very much like to determine whether Mrs. ROGERS may have donated her collection of information to either the Hamilton County Genealogical Society or a local Chattanooga library.
Can you please advise me to whom I should address my query?

I was adopted, but have heard all of my life that my family was Cherokee Indian. My mother's name was Rose Nel HUMAN and she was born in Johnson City, Tennessee. My father's name was Samuel KELLEY. I have heard that my mother's name was changed from WATER, Water. I am left to assume that her mother was the one who was full blooded Cherokee. I really do not know where to start. Roots are important. I am rather like Eve... no history. I would like my child to fare better. I am now 66. My daughter is 41. We do not wish to know our Cherokee history to "cash in" on any rights...just to know where our roots our. Thank you so much for any help you might give me.

Jessie Cheek Thu Dec 22 20:41:18 2005
I am searching for Charles HOLLOWAY and his wife, Elizabeth JONES and their children who were born somewhere in Tennessee. I think that Charles may have died between 1824 and 1830 and the family may have lived first in Marion Co., TN and later moved to Hamilton Co., TN.
Their children were: John Paul Kesterson HOLLOWAY born 8/5/1821, and Sarah, Charlie, Phoebe (maybe born 1824? and married to Abraham O. SMITH?), Susie and Elizabeth. No further information about these siblings--just know the names from a list someone wrote down years ago.
John Paul Kesterson HOLLOWAY married Elizabeth MARTIN. They had a son named Joseph Anderson HOLLOWAY b. 1844 TN (later changed his name to William Berry) and J. A. HOLLOWAY married Tennessee BEAN, daughter of William BEAN and Susannah BALLARD. Their next older daughter was Elizabeth Ann HOLLOWAY b. Dec. 1846 in Chattanooga, TN (my husband's ancestor).
I cannot find this family on census data in TN. The earliest census data I have is 1860 Walker Co., GA census for John P. K. HOLLOWAY family. We found land records in 1824 for a Charles HOLAWAY in Marion County, TN and we found an Elizabeth HOLLOWAY on 1830 census there also, but no Charles HOLLOWAY (he may have been dead by then). We know that JPK HOLLOWAY became a Methodist preacher later in life and that the family moved to Texas later also.
I saw on 1850 census index on page 375B there was a HOLLOWAY on census in Hamilton County, TN. If anyone has information about any HOLLOWAYs in Hamilton County, TN in this time period, we'd love to hear about it!! I have a HOLLOWAY - BALLARD connection in the 1700's also I'm curious if they are related to the above HOLLOWAYs. I found a Robert HOLLOWAY married to a Martha BALLARD in middle 1700's. I am curious if anyone knows the children of this Patrick MARTIN, as we don't know the parentage of Elizabeth MARTIN either--wonder if she could have been related to Patrick MARTIN--wasn't he a Methodist preacher also??
Other names of interest to me are WILLIAMS and SHIRLEY. I am stuck on a Peyton WILLIAMS supposedly born somewhere in TN and married to a Patricia FLOWERS (b. SC). They were in AL or MS by 1849 already I think. Also an Isaac WILLIAMS (b. 1810) who married a Mary Ann SHIRLEY (b. 1820) (from South Carolina, but may have gone through Tennessee on way to Alabama and Texasn (between 1838 and 1845)? Don't know which TN County Peyton WILLIAMS was from. I just mentioned these as I saw there was a Thomas SHIRLEY as an early settler of this County and also a George WWILLIAMS (Peyton WILLIAMS named his son, Moses Williams, and his son was a George Williams--common names though I realize).
THANKS for anyone's help!
