I am researching the Rogers family (my mothers's line) of western North Carolina. |
I have the ability to produce an extract DVD from my Rogers database containing over 50,000 of the Rogers family and over 12,000 photos, thousands of articles, obits, bio's, etc + any several lines you wish. If you are interested, please contact me at my address below referencing Rogers DVD and I will be happy to work with you.
My gg grandfather James Rogers came from the area around 1843. In 1879 he wrote a letter, which I obtained a copy of, to his niece, Caroline Rogers Young (William Thomas Young). She was the daughter of Barney Rogers and Elizabeth Winfrey. Both of the latter are buried at Red Marble cemetery in Cherokee County. In the letter he mentions his brother and also another brother, Jery Rogers (Jeremiah) who married Mary Milsaps. This latter couple died in Oconee, SC. Finally another sibling was mentioned, Roety, who married a Phillips and moved to Kansas.
To make a long story short my ancestor, James, ran away from home at age 9 per family legend. He was b. 1833, Macon County, per his civil war enlistment papers. So his name would not have appeared on the 1840 census, and by 1850 he was no longer in NC, but now in south Arkansas and n. Louisiana where he later married and had family.
For the past 30 years I have been struggling to find the name of his parents. In the letter he mentions his father, but not by name, as being old, blind and living with Barney and having been married 3 times. the 1880 census reveals no old, blind guy living with Barney. However there are at least 2 candidates who fit the description. One in Tennessee and another in Georgia, not far from Cherokee County.
Over the years I have been in contact with a few descendants of Barney and other Rogers researchers who had no further info. Both Barney and James died before Death Certificates became routine. There is no family bible or other information. Recently I paid for my 1st cousin, who is a direct male Rogers descendant, to take the Ancestry DNA test. The results are haplogroup R1b with 46 markers.
The closest match on ancestry so far is 18 generations away. I have sent emails to a number of possible connects (none of them with a Rogers surname) with no responses to date. So, in summary, I believe that James was b. in Macon County in a section that later became part of Cherokee County. He left family behind (the story is that there were a total of 22 siblings by the 3 mothers). I think, and am possibly wrong, that he may be connected to the larger Rogers families of Robert David Rogers of Buncombe as a son of possibly Thomas Rogers or Hughey Rogers, James Bayless Rogers or even one of the other children of Robert. Or maybe even an entirely different Rogers line that I have yet to identify.

I am trying to reconcile cemeteries in Parker County, TX from a variety of sources and ran across this one not listed elsewhere. Could you please let me know the location of the cemetery, if there is an existing tombstone, and the caretaker.
Thank you for letting me know.
In my last note, I should have said any Weavers or Reeces in the Gilmer Co./N.Ga area. I see you have a number of NC Reeces. I haven't traced my family back there (at least as yet).
|Steve Reagin||RE: Jemima Weaver|
That's great that someone was thoughtful enough to do that. During my short time on Find A Grave, I've discovered many people have gone inactive without transferring responsibility, so it's made edits harder at times.
I'm in the process of linking all of my Weaver and Reece ancestors together with their parents/siblings/children, so you may see edits from me for those surnames (these are families on my mother's side). If you ever decide to pull back, I'd be glad to manage any Weavers or Reeces you may have.
Thanks for all of the work and management you've put into this. It's because of people like you that people like me have taken huge steps in discovering their ancestors. I can't imagine how long this would have taken me if I had started before Find A Grave and Ancestry.
|Lisa Barber||RE: Henry Barnes|
You're welcome. Glad I could help.

Thank you for bring our duplicate #46594407 to my attention.
George, sorry for the delay, the daughter (Fannie Margaret Howell Pollard) I'm referring to is buried there with her parents, her # is 139660578, her husband's number (Max Dallas "Max" Pollard) is 139660522, he his buried beside her.
hope this helps

There is a Maude Mabel Garr buried in Section 27 Range 340 Grave 55 who was buried Jan. 17, 1953. That is one day after her death. She is not buried with Benjamin. At this time I do not know if either of them have stones.
Is the the Maude you are looking for? She is the only one that comes close to being the correct one except for the middle name.
