  • Notes 
    • (Research):Taken from a letter between William Floyd Ayers and sister Peggy Ann Ayers Rollins:

      Ok, we know that Joseph Emory and Rebecca Coggburn were married 4 Dec. 1839, in Monroe County TN. So far though, I have not been able to find anything else about them, until Rebecca shows up in the 1860 McMinn County census, with her 4 children.

      Rebecca Emery 39 (our Great Great Grandmother)
      Solomon 17
      Thomas 14
      Mary Jane 10
      Margaret (Rebecca) 4 (our Great grandmother)

      I would like to be able to find out what became of Solomon and Thomas, as I haven't found anything else, so far. Maybe they fought in the Civil War, or went
      west, or died.

      In 1870, Rebecca Emory was in Sulpher Springs, Rhea County, TN, in the house with George and Polly Boals (Boles), and when I went back to the 1860 census, I was able to know for sure, that George and Polly were the parents of John Boles, who married Aunt Mary Jane (Emory).
