Kentuckiana Genealogy: Births: Rodgers/Rogers
|By Steven Rogers (Huskersteven) (184.108.40.206) on Tuesday, February 07, 2006 - 05:20 pm:|
I am looking for information on Michael Rodgers (rogers) and his parents? Jenkin Rogers and Elizabeth Stockwell Rodgers. Michael was born about 1830 in Hardin County Kentucky and his parents were married in Hardin County Kentucky about 1820. This is my brick wall. Here is some further information:
Michael was born in Kentucky, according to all the census's. I firmly believe that his parents are Jenkin Rogers and Elizabeth Stockwell, who married on Feb. 23, 1820 in Hardin Co., KY.
Jenkin was born in VA, and I believe comes from the Jenkin Rogers line that came from England to VA in the late 1600's. I believe that Michael
had brothers Nathan and John, and a sister Sarah who married a Hammel.
The 1850 census is the kicker. Newlyweds, Michael and Mary A. are living next to her parents William and Jane, also next to John Rogers, Nathan
Rogers, and Jenkin Rogers. Mary Ann Rogers was from Harrison county Indiana, father William Kingery and grand father Tobias Kingery who is buried in Little Flock Cemetery near Elizabeth.
