d. aft 1870

In researching the Nancy Rogers family line, I have not found enough information to identify her with certainty. First, on the 1850 census for Tennessee Valley District, Macon County, North Carolina, a Thomas Rogers, age 58 of Tennessee and Elizabeth his wife, age 48 of Buncombe County, North Carolina are listed. There are ten children in the household between the ages of 8 and 27. The second child was Nancy, age 24 and born in Haywood County, North Carolina.
Second, there is a David and Patsy Rogers, ages 60 and 58. Six children were listed - the fifth is Nancy, age 26. I haven't a clue which of the two Nancys above, if either, is the wife of Mitchell Jenkins.
Nancy Rogers remarried after the death of Mitchell A. Jenkins. It is believed by some that her second husband was Eli Collins. I have no documentation to this marriage and there were no children. There is a Nancy Collins, wife of Eli Collins with several Jenkins children listed on the 1870 census in Alarka Township, Macon County, North Carolina. This could be our Nancy T. Rogers Jenkins Collins. On this census she was listed as 48 or 43 - it was difficult to tell which. If 43, she would have been born in 1827, or if 48, she would have been born in 1822. Nancy was buried in an unmarked grave at the foot of her own daughter, Mary Susan Jenkins Welch, in the Tabor Cemetery, Brush Creek, Swain County, North Carolina, according to James Earl Douthit, great grandson of Nancy Rogers Jenkins (Collins?). I have not found the burial place of Eli Collins. (documented by Jim Welch, 9/2002)
