Conners & Rogers in Lenoir City Cemetery

Yesterday I found a group of pictures I had taken in 2001 while visiting the Lenoir City Cemetery with my husband and his daddy, Ray Allen Shubert. I had completely forgotten about them; they are 4 x 6 glossy prints - before my digital camera days. I have a pack of photos from that cemetery as well as some taken in 2003 in Eusebia Presbyterian Cemetery, Elijoy Cemetery, and Logan's Chapel Cemetery. The last three cemeteries mentioned are in Blount County. Lenoir City Cemetery is is Loudon County about three-quarters of a mile from the center of town. The county is in east Tennessee in what is considered the Knoxville Metropolitan Area.

I have recently been corresponding with a descendant and grand-nephew of Cealy Jane Rogers Conner, my husband's great-grandmother. He has generously allowed me to use photos and information that he has acquired about the family here on Tennessee Memories.

First, I would like to post some photos of the headstones and monuments found in Lenoir City Cemetery that I took back in 2001, when my father-in-law was still alive and enjoyed reliving his childhood and retelling the stories he had heard and conjuring up the things he had seen.

 View from the area where some of the Conners and the Rogers are buried.
