Tobias Rogers and Sarah Herndon
Dear Mel Harman, I've come across your name in several online discussions of Tobias Rogers and Sarah Herndon, so I'm writing to ask for your help. I am a Rogers girl, one who thinks our Rogers line may be descended from Tobias Rogers due to Y-dna results that connect us with the Herndon family. Our brick wall is a George Rogers from NC whose son, Willis B Rogers, was our proven great grandfather. I've researched many George Rogers as potential fathers of Willis B, but none of them fit. However if Sarah Herndon told the truth on her pension documents (along with the several people who testified they had seen the Rogers bible with the children's names written there), then her and Tobias' son George could be our 2nd Great-grandfather. But I've run into the accusation that poor Sarah was a liar conspiring to defraud the pension administration -- a rumor I believe you're familiar with. Can you help me chase down this rumor and bury it with hard evidence? I would enjoy comparing notes with you. My email is and my full name is Ruth Rogers Beasley. Hope to hear from you!
