Grandson of Thomas Rogers. Thomas Rogers, the Mayflower Passenger, who died in the first sickness, made his journey to the new world with his son Joseph, who survived. His wife did not come to America. Gov. Bradford says "Thomas Rogers and Joseph (John) his son; his other children came afterwards......Thomas Rogers died in the first sickness but his son Joseph is still living (1650) and is married and hath six children. The rest of Thomas Rogers' [children] came over and are married and have many children." According to Bowman, and substantiated by later research, only one of the children who came later has been identified, viz.: John Rogers, who married Ann Churchman.
