Hi Joe:
You should be commended on doing a superb job on the internet. Someone in Texas (Jane Ausmus) directed me to your site. By the way, I am not related to the Rogers surname, but collected data as I went along in my search for my Claiborne connections! ! !
Can I make some corrections/additions/commments?
Minvera J. Rogers marriages:
marriage 1: John Franklin Ausmus b. 04 Jan 1839 in Speedwell. d. 1864 at Lookout Mountain, Tenn. (assume that he was killed during the Civil War). This union had 4 issues:
Emily b. abt 1858 unknown status
Sarah M. b. 1859
mar Lafayette Stiner -
1 issue

William Harrison b. 17 Mar 1862 mar Anne Russell - more later -
8 issues
John Franklin Jr. b. 11 Dec 1863 mar Clemissa Anne Ausmus -
8 issues
After John Franklin Sr. passed away, she re-married to Hiram John Kivett (son of Lorenzo Bowie Kivett and Eliza Johnson) on 08 Mar 1868 in Speedwell. Hiram b. 27 Oct 1849 near Liberty, Randolph Co., NC. Died 08 Oct 1930 (location unknown). Do not know if Harvey or Hiram is the correct first name.
I have done considerable research of Claiborne County, Tenn. (like yourself). I am a descendant of Jesse Cain and Sarah Ausmus; Nathaniel Davis Cain and Mary Sharp (d/o Agnes Kirk and George Sharp); Margaret Elvira Cain and Isaac Wright (Isaac was also born in Randolph Co., NC - s/o Jacob Wright and Anna Barbary Kivett) ; Thomas O. Johnson and Mary (Polly) Willis; Claiborn Callaway Johnson and Angeline Wright.
Question for you: Did the children from the first marriage of Minvera J. Rogers change their surname from Ausmus to Kivett? Maybe, you do not know that answer either. I assume (right or wrong) that they kept their paternal surname.
I show that Margaret Ann and John Wesley Chumley were married in 1896 in Speedwell.
I show that Minnie Bell and John William Dorton married on 05 Nov 1894 in Speedwell. Did not have their children.
On John William Sr. Dorton - I show that he died on 13 Oct 1926. On James Dorton - I show that he married Lela Noe.
On Harvey Dorton - I show that he married Betsy Owens.
Do not know which of us is correct on these marriages.
Elizabeth Rogers - d/o Jesse and Margaret Wilson Rogers married Jason Russell b. 28 Oct 1836 d. 25 Dec 1910. They had at least one child, Anne, b. 28 Apr 1858 in Claiborne Co., d. 12 Jan 1934 in Speedwell. Anne married William Harrison Ausmus in 1881 in Claiborne Co. William Harrison b. 17 Mar 1862 in Claiborne Co., d. 26 Jan 1924. They had 8 issues.
Note: Margaret Wilson d/o David Robert Sr. Wilson b. 1759 in NC and d. 28 Feb 1847 in Claiborne. Mar Elizabeth Pennycoff b. unk in Penn. d. abt 1830 in Claiborne. David and Elizabeth had 10 issues. One of them, David Robert Jr. mar Catherine Cain (d/o) Jesse Cain and Sarah Ausmus).
Due to time constraints tonite, have not had the opportunity to check the remaining Rogers and their issues. Will do that later for you.

Joe, by the way, where do you live? How do you fit into the Claiborne Connection (assume one of the Rogers descendants)?

12 3 Minerva J. Rogers was born 4 Sep 1841 in Claiborne Co., Tn, and married Harvey J. Kivett who was born in 1850 in NC. Minerva J. died on 3 Feb 1916 in Claiborne Co., Tn. Harvey J. died on 8 Oct 1930 in Claiborne Co., Tn.
In the Claiborne Co. 1870 census I found record no. 37 36 Kivet Harvey J. 20 MW In the Service, Manerva J Kivett 29 Keeping house Sarah 11 William 8 John 6 James P. 1 These evidently are not Harvey J.'s children but who are they?
I am adding another Kivett to my database Mary Maria KIVETTE-629 22 Feb 1860 Claiborne County,TN 5 May 1932 Claiborne County

Joe,
I found this on your site and I think I can shed some light on it. On page 227 of Bonnie Page's book Speedwell though 200 years you can find the picture of the home of Minerva Rogers Ausmus Kivette. Aunt Nerve as she is referred to in my family was first married to Dr. John Franklin Ausmus (Jan 4, 1839-1864). He died on Lookout Mountain at Chattanooga during the Civil War. Aunt Nerve later married John Kivette or Harvey J. Kivette in your information. Aunt Nerve and Capt. John Ausmus were the parents of 1. Emily, 2. William Harrison, 3. John Franklin Ausmus (later known as Dr. Blue John). I do not know if Emily's first name was Sarah or not, but since it was listed that way in the census it may have been Sarah Emily Ausmus. She married LaFayette Stiner. You can also find information about the Ausmus family of John and Minerva in Old Speedwell families, revised, on page 34.
Perhaps you are already aware of this connection because I am sure you did the above work some time ago. However, I thought I would pass it along.
Best Regards,
Billie Hall
