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 was at the Johnson Cemetery, in the middle of nowhere Fannin County, Georgia yesterday. It is in such bad shape, I found only three markers to photograph. Two Greenway's and one Johnson. Sorry! 😟 The only way to access it is by foot or fourwheeler, and I was a bit unnerved on the four wheeler at times.

Do you know why the many of the children of Burnice C. King think their mother's maiden name was Clark rather than Robinson?

Hi Roger, I have found Mary Elizabeth Wilson Mull ( 66204881) living in a 1910 and a 1920 census. Where did you get the 1889 death date? It doesn't appear on her tombstone. Thank you for any info.
|Shelia Jarrett Hyatt||Rodgers|
Hi George. I was reading you bio post. Stating that you are related to the Rogers. My great great grandmother was Polly Ann Rogers she married my great great grandfather John C. Jarrett.
Thank you for accepting the edit to add his parents memorial numbers. Will you please change burial to read Miles Cemetery,Runnels Co. Tx. It has it in the obituary that is posted on this site. The different cemetery listings are splitting his Family. Also if you will, please transfer to me as he is family. Thank you Karen Jetton 47481988.
I believe the correct cemetery name for this memorial is Miles Cemetery which is also in the obit you have listed. There is a duplicated and I have ask the person responsible to remove it
#174734995. This is family member, his father was a great uncle. If you would like to transfer I will be happy to maintain.
Thanks, Karen Jetton 47481998.
Hi George. Jessie Humphrey #36579621 is my maternal grandmother. Can you please transfer her to me? Thank you in advance, I really appreciate it.
|Susan Grant||McHan cemetery|
Hi George: I see you have been waiting for 4 years for someone to take a photo of Julia Jarrett's marker. That's pretty weird! Ancestry says that James Harvey McHan is buried there too. I guess it wouldn't do any good to put in a request for a photo. Do you have any photos you might want to share of the McHans? thanks, Susan
|Sue Hale Sheppard||Houston Hunnicutt #92412554|
Thank you for accepting the edit to link Houston Hunnicutt #92412554 to his parents.
I enjoyed reading your bio and wish you the best in your continued research.
I would be pleased if you would go to my Bio and visit my parents' memorials by clicking on their links.
