County Antrim, Northern Ireland
|Death: ||Mar., 1807|
Hamilton Rodgers (Rogers), is now spelled here with the D, after research shows his ancestors mostly included the D. His descendants mostly include a D, but some did not. Land records for example in Virginia for Hamilton and his brother, Arthur, were spelled without the D.
Parents: William Rodgers and Jean Hamilton. (Jean can be found as Jane. She was married previously and had the name of either Rooney or Allen. Family research in N. Ireland shows it as Allen) They immigrated in 1729 from near Antrim, in County Antrim, N. Ireland. (family records show only County Antrim, NI; rootsweb shows Lisburn in County Antrim, NI, but that record is now proven to NOT be the correct ancestry for this Rodgers/Rogers line.)
Wife: Isabella Mary Means (also shown in records as Mains and without the middle name, Mary)
Born: about 1728 Tinicum Twp, Bucks Cty, PA.
Died: Aug. 18, 1815 Ross Cty, OH, buried in the Rodgers McElwain Cemetery, Fayette Cty, OH. (This cemetery is also called the Rogers McElwain Cemetery)
Brother of HAMILTON: Arthur Rogers, FAG#85821186.
(His descendant family line has tended to spell without the D)
Born: unknown but likely south of Philadelphia, PA, after 1729 immigration of parents.
Died: Loudoun Cty, VA (or Chillicothe, OH), buried in the Free Church Cemetery in Middleburg, VA. This is a very old cemetery and is very near the Sharon Cemetery, Middleburg, VA.
Arthur's descendants lived in the Leesburg and Middleburg, Loudoun County, VA area.
Many of Arthur's family descendants owned slaves. Hamilton's family did not and were devoutly against slave ownership. This may have been the reason why the D was not in for Arthur's descendants, to disassociate from the line that was against slavery.
