Hezekiah and Jacob Rogers

Davis's History of Bucks County Pennsylvania states in volume l on page 386, "Jacob and
       Hezekiah Rogers, Scotch immigrants settled in Plumstead sometime in the last
       century, but we do not have the date, taking up 640 acres covering a side of Benner's
       corner. Fifty acres still being in the family."
The book Place Names in Bucks County Pennsylvania, page 308, describes the area of
       Plumstead Township as follows: "...There are four parishes by this name (Plumstead)
       in England...this may be one of the many names derived from English sources. First
       settlers of Plumstead included the ...Rogers...families."
Ora (Rogers) Singleton, in her material in the Kentucky State Historical Library, Frankfort,
       Kentucky, states, "Two brothers Jacob and Hezekiah Rogers from Scotland settled in
       Bucks County, Pennsylvania before 1729. On January 17, 1729 they received a deed
       for 250 acres of land in Plumstead Township near Plumsteadville. On April 21, 1733
       Jacob Rogers deeded part of this land to Hezekiah Rogers. On March 11, 1780
       Hezekiah deeded this same tract of land to his son, George Rogers. Another record
       says that „Hezekiah Rogers, an old man, died July 2, 1780.‟ This was in Plumstead
       Township in Bucks County, Pa."

       daughter of John Sebring of Solebury Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. See
       document dated 22 July 1794 in George Rogers file. An Elizabeth Sebring daughter
       of Johannes was baptized 28 May 1732 in Raritan (Somerville), Somerset County,
       New Jersey. E. L. Kinney: “The Sebrings were associated with the Rogers—for
       example, there is an Elizabeth Sebring will, 1810, Hampshire County, West Virginia,
       which mentions our Rogers—but this connection is not obvious. The Elizabeth
       Sebring of Bucks County who had a son named George Rogers was much too young
       to be the mother of the George Rogers who was the son of Hezekiah. More likely
       Elizabeth Sebring Rogers was a daughter-in-law of Hezekiah Rogers. Also, I have just
       stumbled upon another son of Hezekiah, Hiram, who reportedly went to Minnesota.”

*John Rogers (son of Ezekiel and Mary _______)
8 Sept 1757: born Plumstead Twp. Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
no date: married ------- Foster? Their oldest son was named Nathan. According to Curtis
       Jacobs, Nathan Foster Rogers was the son of John Rogers and Eliza Foster. He also
       said they were married about 1775/76. E. L. Kinney: “I suspect that Nathan Foster
       Rogers was named for a RW soldier, Nathaniel Foster, by 1760 N.J., and that
       Nathaniel Foster is probably the brother of Rebecca Foster who married Joseph
       Moore. In other words, Nathan‟s mother may have been a sister of Rebecca Foster.
       The Foster-Moore and Rogers families traveled together, intermarried a lot, and seem
       to have been very close. (A Foster Moore witnessed a sale in 1806 from Agnes to John
       Waugh). NFR referred to Joseph and Forman Moore as his cousins, which they would
       have been if Rebecca and Eliza were sisters.

       depth was 5' 6", had 1 deck, 2 masts, a square stern, she measured 56 and 79/95
       tons and had a round tuck, no gallery and a billet head (a curved wooden carving used
       on a ship in place of a figurehead). Nathan F. Rogers, a citizen of the United States
       born in Pennsylvania, was the Master. This is all the material on the James Lawrence
       in the National Archives.
7 May 1823: sailed from New Orleans bound for the Rio Grande on the "James Lawrence".
5 Sept 1823: In the unpublished papers of Stephen Austin is the following account of the
       wreck of the "James Lawrence". Mexican Nation, Province of Texas, Austins Colony.
       I Nathan F. Rogers late Master of the Schooner James Lawrence, burden 56 tons
       79/95 last from the port of New Orleans and bound to the River Grande, Cargo
       agreeably to the Bill of Lading, personally appeared (and) being sworn do solemnly
       protest and declare that on the 5 May 1823 the said Schooner James Lawrence was
       regularly cleared out at the Customs House of the Port of New Orleans bound for the
       River Grande with a cargo, as will appear by said clearance and bill of lading which
       accompanies this protest. That on the 7 of May the said Rogers sailed with said
       Schooner from the said port of Orleans bound as aforesaid, head winds in the
       Mississippi, crossed the bar at the southwest pass on the 12 same month, steared a
       southwesterly course for Galveston Island, and on the 14 changed course west. On
       the 15 at 8 o'clock at night hove in sight of the breakers on the leeward, a heavy gale
       blowing at that time dead on shore and found it impossible to keep off the breakers.
       After ineffectual efforts to bent out came to anchor with the bent some new cable in
       two fathoms of water at the edge of the breakers. Gales increasing and the sea
       breaking over the vessel and sweeping the deck frequently and the pumps becoming
       useless by getting chocked up, could not free the vessel from the water she leaked. In
       this situation finding it impossible to ride at anchor any longer called a council of the
       owners of the property and passengers and crew on board in which it was

                                                  29
      unanimously decided to run the vessel on shore as the only means of saving lives and
      property which was accordingly done at 8 AM on the 16th. And every possible effort
      was immediately made by passengers and crew to get out and save the cargo about
      two thirds of which was taken from the vessel that day and secured all in a damaged
      situation, except a few trunks and boxes of wax figures which were not damaged. The
      gale continuing on the 17th the vessel was a complete wreck. The said Rogers
      therefore solemnly protests against the wind and waves as the true and unavoidable
      cause of the loss of the said Schooner Lawrence, and that it was not owing to any
      neglect or fault of his, or of the crew.
+5 May 1824: a document written in Spanish and translated by Inga Corbett of Champaign,
      Illinois - "Nathan F. Rogers born in the U. S., occupation carpenter, residing at the
      present in this precinct. He has decided to reside in the Territory of Mexico, observing
      the laws and subjecting himself to the customs of the country. Since he has no land
      of his own, to support himself he deems it necessary to request four lots along the
      River of Guadalupe north of the road of Alenonta. Two of the lots by the River to be
      cultivated by Nathan Rogers and two other lots for the settlement of his two children
      whose families live on the other side of the River. In the name of all concerned he feels
      obliged to satisfy the right and customs of the original owners, and pay the Legal
      Claims office the costs of the transaction. In this case we approach you in due respect
      and request your gracious and just settlement of this request in Bahia 4 May 1824.
               The interested paid the value of this land to this administration that is under my
                       jurisdiction. Bahia 5de Mayo 1824.
               The Legal Claims Office will inform me at this time if there is an impediment to
                       the agreed sale of this land.
               Bahia 5de Mayo 1824
               In answer to your request of May 5 and in relation to the land the interested
                       person solicits to buy, this Municipal Government can not find any
                       obstacles to the transaction. It is understood that the distribution had to
                       be from "{ase Anastauo" Northward and the land by the River will
                       stretch equally far. This is stated by Martin de Leon, Citizen of Villa
                       Guadalupe de Victoria. This is the statement of the Municipal
                       Government in this particular situation.
               The garrison of La Bahia del Espirito Santo 5/6/1824: I, Jose Sancedo, a
                       citizen, head speaker of the Exma Diputacion Provincial and Chief of
                       the Police, read the preceding information from the Municipal
                       Government of this precinct. I take in account the pledge of Nathan
                       Rogers to obey the Mexican laws and came to the conclusion to permit
                       the sale of the four lots described in the other documents along the
                       River Guadalupe.
               In the name of the Mexican Government, under whose jurisdiction I work, I will
                       give him the ownership under the law and have him sign the documents
                       with adequate witnesses.
               In the other district after 7 days of 5.5.24: I, the temporal Head Speaker,
                       political chief of this province am referring to the four lots described in

                                                   30
                      the preceeding document prepared for Nathan Rogers. I will describe
                      the land measured by Francisco de Zora, Jose Antonio Saucedo, Jose
                      Maria del Castillo the lots by the River Guadalupe presently owned by
                      Tomas Gray.
              One measure of 10 thousand rods along the River going North from that point
                      10 thousand rods going East and another 10 thousand rods going
                      South and 10 thousand rods West to the original starting point.
                      Herewith a perfect square is formed bordering Tomas Gray's land. This
                      square contains the four lots to be transferred to Nathan Rogers.
              I transferred the actual possession of the land from the original owner to
                      Nathan Rogers by calling out in a loud voice: "In the name of the
                      supreme government of the Mexican nation I give possession of the four
                      lots contained within the measurements to Nathan Rogers. he will make
                      use of it and this children and descendants.
              Nathan Rogers after receiving the land gave a joyful call, started to pull out
                      herbs and throw rocks. He was ready to plant. He was advised to
                      populate the land and pay taxes according to the value of the Land to the
                      Public funds of the province. On the presence of witnesses lacking a
                      scribe I transfer this sale in good faith.
              The Government of this date did not approve the possession of the land,
                      therefore these papers are nulified and have no effectual value. June 2,
                      1834."

       could arrange his business but from the Exposoure and hardships he had Endured
       while in Texas his health became so much impaired that from his bad health and

       the duties required of him as such and beleaveing as he did that he was entitled to one

             besides others written in 1853. He spent a lot of his time in Texas and partly in
             Kentucky.”

       Dora Larson in 1961: “I have found out that Nathan Foster Rogers was buried in a
             cemetery not far from Cabin Creek. Another record says in an old cemetery just
             east of Maysville, Mason County, Kentucky.”

       Hazel Rupert Evans: Nathan Foster Rogers surveyed in Texas for Sam Houston. In
             the 1830s was captain of a schooner.

               “Nathan Foster Rogers—an ancestor whose name is synonymous with the
       proverbial wandering star. From his birth in Bucks County, Pennsylvania in 1777, to
       Virginia, to Mason County, Kentucky, to Adams County, Ohio, to New Orleans,

                                                  44
Louisiana, to Texas, Nathan Foster Rogers seemed to follow wherever the path to new
adventures took him.
        Nathan Foster Rogers was the son of John Rogers. His mother‟s given name
is unknown, but it is believed that her maiden name was Foster. Nathan Foster
Rogers‟ grandparents were Ezekiel and Mary Rogers. The emigrant of this Rogers
family was Hezekiah Rogers. He came from Scotland and settled in Bucks County,
Pennsylvania where he married Elizabeth Sebring.
        By the year 1797, Nathan Foster Rogers had moved to Adams County, Ohio.
He married Agnes Waugh, daughter of John and Elizabeth Waugh around this time.
Nathan Foster and Agnes Waugh Rogers were the parents of eight children. Several
of these children moved to Texas. His wife, Agnes, never came to Texas, but
remained in their home in Mason County, Kentucky where she died in 1850. Their
children were: John (b. ca 1798), Eliza (b. 15 November 1799-d. 2 May 1876, m.
Burroughs Moore. They came to Texas in 1846.), Lemira Levina (b. 9 June 1803-d.
11 May 1894, m. Gilbert Smith. They came to Texas in 1846), Evalina (b. 1810-m.
James C. Pendleton), Letitia, William Waugh (b. 1817-d. 1881 in Shelburn, Sullivan
County, Indiana, m. Roseanna Mitchell. Three of their daughters came to Texas.),
Mary Ann (b. 1819-m. Price Faucett), and Theresa (b. 1820-d. 1 January 1845, m. Sid
Withem).
        Nathan Foster Rogers was a veteran of the War of 1812. He enlisted from
West Union, Adams County, Ohio on 20 July 1813. He was honorably discharged
from service in Upper Sandusky, Ohio on 1 September 1813, and earned $26.41
including the hire of his horse. He says he re-enlisted on 5 September 1813 from
Delaware, Delaware County, Ohio, and again was honorably discharged from service
in November 1813.
        The first record of Nathan F. Rogers in Texas appears in the unpublished
works of Stephen F. Austin with the account of the wreck of the „James Lawrence.‟
The account is dated 5 September 1823 in the Mexican Nation, Province of Texas,
Austin‟s Colony. On 7 May 1823, the „James Lawrence‟ sailed from New Orleans
bound for the River Grande. The crew list (copy in the National Archives), indicates
that Nathan F. Rogers was one of the owners and the master of the ship. The „James
Lawrence‟ sank in Galveston Bay during a storm. (The unpublished works of Stephen
F. Austin are in the Barker Library at the University of Texas at Austin.)
        In a Spanish land grant dated 5 May 1824, Nathan F. Rogers was granted
10,000 acres of land in present Victoria County. He listed his occupation as a
carpenter, and children were mentioned as living across the river. Nathan Foster
Rogers lost this land due to non-payment of taxes.
        In a letter dated 3 December 1849 written by Nathan F. Rogers to the
Commissioner of Public Lands, he indicates that he first came to Texas in May of
1823, and remained in Texas until the year 1825 when he returned to Kentucky with
the intention of returning as soon as he arranged his business interests. He states that
he did not return—due to exposure and hardships which caused his health to
fail—until the year 1835, and since that time had been a citizen of Texas. He further
states that he never received his land due to him as a colonist. In a second letter

                                          45
written from Black Jack Grove, Hopkins County, Texas dated 8 November 1851, he
states he was administered the oath of government by Stephen F. Austin in 1823 as
one of Austin‟s 300 settlers. He also states that he provided arms („four good guns—2
rifles and 2 double barrels, and a spy glass‟), and „all the means he had‟ to the war
effort. (The originals of these letters are in the Texas State Archives.).
      Original letters written by Nathan Foster Rogers and members of his family still
exists. These letters were written in 1846, 1847, 1849, 1851, 1853, and 1854. In
addition to Nathan Foster Rogers‟ letters, there are letters from Burroughs and Eliza
Moore, and Gilbert and Lemira Smith. Both of these families also lived in Hopkins
County, Texas.
      In the 1850 Hopkins County, Texas census, Nathan Foster Rogers is found in the
household of his widowed daughter, Eliza Rogers Moore. Nathan Foster Rogers died
in 1854 without leaving a will. His estate was probated in Hopkins County with his
son-in-law, Gilbert Smith, as administrator. In a letter dated 14 August 1854, from
Gilbert and Lemira Smith to family members in Kentucky and Ohio, they state that
Nathan Foster Rogers had been back in Kentucky visiting for more than a year, but
that they expected him to return to Texas soon.
      It is not known whether Nathan Foster Rogers died in Kentucky, enroute to Texas,
or in his home in Texas. His burial site is unknown. Quite an old man, but still not able
to curtail his restless nature. A traveling man to the end.

   Mrs. Lou Penn: Nathan Foster Rogers‟ stepmother and children sued him for
money borrowed. This action was what started his roaming around the country.

    Some of the descendants of Nathan Foster Rogers are: Linda Moore Riddle, P.O.
Box 758, Sulphur Springs, Texas 75482; Mrs. Sue-Beall Shaffer, 10215 Mapleridge
Drive, Dallas, Texas 75238; Mrs. Billy Rose Chapman, Route Box 1, Sulphur Springs,
Texas 75482; Mrs. Jean Evans, 1842 Maynard Drive, Champaign, Illinois 61821.


John G. Rogers (son of Nathan Foster and Agnes (Waugh) Rogers
ca 1798: born in or near Springdale, Mason County, Kentucky.
June 1815: to work on Cabin Creek road. Mason County, Kentucky Order Book G
p327.
He was killed in a steamboat explosion on the Ohio River.

       One source suggests that he got in some kind of trouble and disappeared
             assuming another name. “Benjamin Rogers „Foster‟ [b.1817 d. 21 Aug
             1879] was working in a mine in Ohio when about grown. According to
             Great-grandpa „Foster‟, an older miner had been giving him a hard time.
             He decided to end the harassment and used some kind of tool to lay the
             fellow out. Thinking he had killed him our ancestor fled and changed his
             name to Foster. Many years later he learned that the man had not died
             but by that time he already had married Martha Moore Davis under his

                                           46
            new name and had started a family so he never bothered to change
            back to his real name.” Martha Moore Davis was the daughter of William
            M. and Nancy Davis. Also listed are his children and their birth dates.

      Another source also suggests that there was a name change - The line was the
            same through to John Rogers whom she said was married to Eliza
                                      nd
            Foster, she also had the 2 marriage to Diadamia Curtis. Nathan Foster

                                          61
County, Texas by D. H. Hare:
        “Gilbert Smith was born in 1795 in Pennsylvania, and married Lemira Lavinia
Rogers, born in 1804, the daughter of Nathan Foster Rogers, in Kentucky. Eleven of
their twelve children were born in Kentucky, and one was born after they moved to
Hopkins County in 1845. In the move from Kentucky, they came to Texas by boat to
Jefferson, which at that time was the principal city of east Texas. Gilbert Smith had his
own river boat, and after the family was safely unloaded, the three oldest sons used
the boat for some time for freighting on the Mississippi River.
        From Jefferson they came in ox wagons…the Smith family decided to locate on
Caney Creek. There they were, a big family, and nothing but a tar pole wagon and
yokes of oxen. The three oldest boys, Will, Sam and John, stayed behind, as they had
jobs on the river. Will died in New Orleans, but Sam and John later joined their parents
in Hopkins County.
        Gilbert Smith operated a tavern or inn at Tarrant. President Sam Houston
stayed with the Gilbert Smiths in Tarrant when he made an inspection of a boundary
dispute between the United States and Texas. Sam Houston offered to appoint one of
Gilbert Smith‟s boys, Sam, as sheriff of Hopkins County, which was being formed.
        Sam declined the appointment and told Sam Houston, „If the people of Hopkins
County want me for the sheriff, they must elect me.‟”

Dec 1864: History of Greene and Sullivan Counties (Indiana) “The grand jury returned an
      indictment against Haydon Cuppy, William W. Rogers and James T. Allen, charging
      them with the murder of a stranger by hanging him by the neck. The circumstances
      of the case were substantially these: Shortly previous to the sitting of the grand jury,
      two strange men, claiming to be from Louisville, Kentucky, got off the cars at the town
      of Shelburn and to the country for the ostensible purpose of looking for land that one
      of them claimed to own and proposed to sell to the other. They had not been long gone
      when one of them returned. Sometime during the day, a lady and some children were
      attracted into a thick woods by the moans of a person, where they found the other
      stranger apparently in a dying condition. He had been beaten over the head with a club
      in a terrible manner and had also been stabbed a number of times. He was entirely
      insensible, and no hopes of his recovery were entertained. He had been robbed of all
      his money and other valuables carried upon his person. The news of the supposed
      murder and robbery spread rapidly and soon there were several hundred people on the
      ground. The man that had returned to Shelburn was recognized as the person that had
      got off the train in company with the murdered man. He was promptly arrested and
      admitted his crime. He was taken to the woods east of Shelburn and, in the presence
      of a crowd of from five to seven hundred people, was hanged. The cause was not tried
      till the February term, 1867, and the defendants were admitted to bail in the sum of
      $5000 each....The case of the State vs Haydon Cuppy, William Waugh Rogers and
      James T. Allen was tried by jury and the defendants were acquitted. Although it was
      claimed that over five hundred people witnessed the hanging, no witness was
      produced, although many were examined and testified that they were present and
      witnessed the hanging as previously stated, who were able to state who the parties
      were that who was able to state who the parties were hung the man. The excitement
      and confusion seemed to have been so great that no one knew how or by whom the
      hanging was done.” History of Greene and Sullivan Counties, Indiana, Chicago:

19 Feb 1888: Shelburn, Indiana "Mrs Georgeanna Sartain Dear Daughter I recieved your
       letter a few days ago but have not had an opportunity to answer until now. I was glad
       to hear from you and that you was all well. I have been poorly all winter with cold and
       rheumatism but am some better now and I think that if the weather would only clear up
       and get setled I would feel a great deal better. I think we have had the most
       disagreeable winter we ever had. it is raining today and looks as though we will have
       a general thaw now. I had a letter from Leide last week. They were well satisfied, they
       were going to buy a lot and build this summer. She said the wrinkles had all left her
       face and they all look better than they had in a long time it had been very cold down
       there. Colder than ever known before. We heard from Lou this week they were all well.
       I have not been down to Wills since Christmas I have not heard from them for
       sometime. Sims are well so far as I know I had a letter from Mollie Whaley last week
       she said that her grandmother fell on the ice and hurt her arm very badly. I had
       received a letter from Margaret a few days before and she said she was thinking about

                                                     68
       coming out to see us all, but I am afraid this will put her out of the notion again. I was
       sorry to hear that you lost your horse. I have been thinking of coming up for sometime
       but the weather keeps so bad and I am so crippled up that I will not come up till the
       weather gets better. I am here at Andy's at present - they are all tolerable well. How are
       Terse folk I have not had a word from her this winter. Tell her to write to me I believe
       that is all. Regards to all. write soon and often to your Mother. Rose A. Rogers".

       Georgeanna Rogers Sartain said : During the civil war one son of William Waugh
              Rogers fought for the south, two sons fought for the north - ruined financially
              by the war, went to Sullivan County, Indiana. She also told her children that she
              had two slaves. She had no use for “old Abe Lincoln”. She always wept when

                                                  69
       she heard the song “My Old Kentucky Home”. [I have never found any member
       of this Rogers family listed on the slave censuses in Kentucky. BJE]
Hazel Rupert Evans: “William Waugh Rogers was involved in a lynching in Sullivan
       County. Acquitted by jury trial.”
Ora (Rogers) Singleton:
“I have heard my mother say that her father, William Waugh Rogers, came to Texas,
       and took his father Nathan Foster Rogers back to Springdale after he got sick
       down here.”

Mrs. Penn said that Nathan Foster Rogers became sick and was taken back to
Kentucky by Gilbert Smith. They met William Waugh Rogers “somewhere” on the
way.

Ora Singleton:
"The first ancestor I know about was Ezekiel Rogers, born October 20, 1729, but I
don't know where he was born. He had three sons and a daughter, but I do not know
where they lived, except that the daughter was living in Mason County in 1853 and one
son John Rogers was my great-great-grandfather born September 8, 1757 and died
March 8, 1826, and his home was in Mason County then. John Rogers had two
brothers, George Rogers born September 6, 1762, and Thomas Rogers, born
February, 1767. His sister ELeanor Rogers was born September 28, 1771 and in
1853 my great-grandfather wrote about visiting her and called her 'my Aunt Ellen
Bolton.' He did not mention either George or Thomas who were his uncles.

John Rogers married twice and my great-grandfather Nathan Foster Rogers was his
son by his first wife, who evidently was a Miss Foster, but I do not know her name,
when she died, or when Nathan Foster Rogers was born or just when he died. He was
alive in August, 1854, according to family letters. John Rogers marries Miss Diadamia
Curtis, September 5, 1799 and their children were half-brother and sisters of Nathan
Foster Rogers. Diadamia was still living on the old Rogers home with her son Thomas
in 1854 according to letters written by her stepson Nathan Foster Rogers, my
great-grandfather. Members of the Waugh and Rogers families were buried near the
old home Springdale, near the mouth of Cabin Creek, but in the late sixties or early
seventies a railroad was built across that land and my grandfather William Waugh
Rogers son of Nathan Foster Rogers, moved all the dead to the cemetery in Maysville.

There are only a few letters available now, to give my generation very much family
history, but what we do know makes me ambitious to learn more.

Our great-grandfather Nathan Foster Rogers so the story goes, came to Texas about
1833 as a surveyor for General Sam Houston and from then to 1854, he divided his
time between Mason County Ky. and Texas. We have several of his letters written by
him to one of his daughters between 1849 and 1854 that are very interesting. His
description of Texas, especially Hopkins County are so fine I had that published in a

                                         70
local paper last spring. He wrote from Mason County, Ky. part of the time, but he was
anxious for his children to move to Hopkins County, Texas, so he told a great deal
about it. Three of his daughters did move to Texas, and he called it 'home' after 1846.
His son William Waugh Rogers, my grandfather, was a steamboat captain from
Springdale to New Orleans, but moved his family from Springdale before 1870 to
Sullivan County, Indiana where he died in 1881. Later three of his daughters moved to
Sulphur Springs, Texas and I am the daughter of one of them. Why W. W. Rogers
moved to Indiana, I do not know, but there were some other Rogers already there and
they may have been related to our family."

1 Nov 1847: born Springdale, Mason County, Kentucky.
27 Dec 1877: married Sullivan County, Indiana, Andrew Carter (_____-30 May 1900).
14 Aug 1884: daughter Ora born Sullivan County, Indiana, married 7 June 1915 in
      Texas, Robert W. Singleton. After her mother‟s death, Ora lived with her aunt
      Lida Rogers Higdon until Ora‟s marriage. Both were teachers several years
      and after they retired as teachers they lived near Cooper, Delta County, Texas.
      She and her husband died in an automobile wreck by 1969. She was deeply
      interested in genealogy and deposited much of her work in various libraries to
      be available to all searchers. Apparently she had kept the originals and after
      she and her husband were killed, their house burned to the ground. I suppose
      the originals went up in flames.
Jan 1903: Margaret and her daughter moved to Sulphur Springs, Hopkins County,
      Texas.
9 May 1906: died Sulphur Springs, Hopkins County, Texas. Her obituary reads: "In
      Memoriam. Margarette Agnes Rogers was born near Maysville, Kentucky
      November 1st 1848 and lived there until she was 16 years old when her father's
      family moved to Shelburn, Indiana where she lived until four years ago when
      she came to Texas. At an early age she joined the Baptist church and lived, a
      devoted member. She was the mother of three children, 2 having died in

                                         75
      infancy. She leaves a devoted daughter, Ora and four sisters to mourn her
      loss."
Known as “Ag.”
Margaret was a teacher for several years before she married. Margaret had two more

Hampshire County, Virginia 1782 and 1784 County censuses (tax lists?).
It is suggested that if in 1782 a man and his family are listed, but are gone in 1784, that the
        1790 census for Pennsylvania be consulted, and the counties in the western part -
        Alleghany, Bedford, Fayette, Washington and Westmoreland - be especially noted. It
        is quite likely that the names will be found there.
The census takers had contiguous territory, therefore the same initials following two names
        indicates that these families were neighbors. The names of the takers and the initials
        used are as follows.
        JhW = John Wilson; JbW = Job Welton; MC = Michael Cresap; MqC = Marquis
        Calmes ('84 only); LA = Levi Ashbrook ('82 only); VW = Vincent Williams; WV =
        William Vause; AH = Abraham Hite; DM = David Mitchell; AJ = Abraham Johnson;
        OJ = Okey Johnson; MS = Michael Stump; ST = Simon Taylor; AR = Abel Randall;
        WB = William Buffington ('82 only); SR = Stephen Ruddle; EP = Elias Posten ('84
        only).
        1782: figures indicate free whites; sl indicate slaves.

                                                 89
      1784: 1st figure = free whites; 2nd dewellings; 3rd other buildings.

Ora Rogers (Carter) Singleton (Mrs. Robert Singleton) of Cooper, Delta County, Texas, a
      descendant of Ezekiel Rogers. Found in the Rogers file in the Kentucky Historical
      Society‟s Library in the Old State House at Frankfort, Kentucky. Ora‟s mother was a
      sister of Georgeanne (Rogers) Sartain.

        “Two brothers, Jacob and Hezekiah Rogers from Scotland settled in Bucks County,
Pa. before 1729. On January 17, 1729 they received a deed for 250 acres of land in
Plumstead Township near Plumsteadville. On April 21, 1733 Jacob Rogers deeded part of
this land to Hezekiah Rogers. On March 11, 1780 Hezekiah deeded this same tract of land to
his son, George Rogers. Another record says that „Hezekiah Rogers, an old man, died July

                                                90
2, 1780.‟ This was in Plumstead Township in Bucks County, Pa.
       In the will of George Rogers, Plumstead Twp., Bucks Co., Pa., dated November 12,
1815 and proved March 21, 1816, mention is made of his wife Mary and these
children—Hezekiah Rogers, Mary Kirkbride, Elizabeth Walton and Ann Geary. So far no
proof has been found that Ezekiel Rogers, who was born October 20, 1729, was also a son
of Hezekiah Rogers I.
       Ezekiel Rogers served in Capt. William McCalla‟s Associated Company of Militia in
Plumstead Township, Bucks Co., Pa. on August 21, 1775 and John Rogers was in the same
Company. On June 2, 1780 George Rogers was in Second Class and Ezekiel Rogers was in
Third Class of the Bucks County Militia. In 1779 George Rogers was taxed for 75 acres of
land and Ezekiel for 50 acres in Plumstead Township, Bucks Co., Pa. (Records from
Pa.—except the date of the birth of Ezekiel Rogers which is on record in his family history,
also the fact that he had a son, John Rogers, born in Pennsylvania September 8, 1757.)
       From the Fillson Library, Louisville, Kentucky comes this record, „An Ezekiel Rogers
was in Bedford Co., Va., in 1793 and went from there through the Cumberland Gap to
Kentucky and in 1809 he lived in Bourbon County, Ky.‟…
       In 1853 a nephew of George and Thomas Rogers wrote about his Aunt Susan and his
Aunt Mary. He also mentioned „my Aunt Elin Bolton‟ who must have been Elinor Rogers. John
Rogers lived in Mason County, Kentucky in 1792 and 1793. This nephew was Nathan Foster
Rogers, born in Pa. in 1777, son of the above John Rogers. The name of his mother is not
known nor is it known whether he had any own brothers and sisters; but John Rogers married
on Sept. 5, 1799 Diademia Curtis, born Sept. 2, 1779, and they had six children. It is not
known when John Rogers and his son, Nathan Foster Rogers, went to Mason County,
Kentucky, but John Rogers died there March 8, 1826. In 1854 Nathan F. Rogers wrote that
„Mother Diame‟ was living on the old home place and that her son Thomas was with her…
       The community of Plumville in Mason County was probably named by either John
Rogers or his son in honor of their old home town, Plumsteadville in Plumstead Township,
Bucks County, Pennsylvania.”
