  1. Small world - I've got tons of Greene Co., TN ancestors, too! I have copies of "Historic Greene County, Tennessee and Its People: 1783-1992" and "Greene County, Tennessee Cemeteries," if you need any look-ups.

  2. Interesting. I have an ancester born about 1800 named James Rogers Mitchell. Do you have any information on James Rogers's decendants?

  3. Elizabeth, it's a small world indeed: First, I have seen you and replied to your posts on the California Genealogists blog/DAR. Now, I see that you mention that you, as do I, have tons of Greene County, Tennessee ancestors, too!
