 The Rogers' are Irish.  The Rogers family descends from Colla Uais “Colla the Noble”, 121st Monarch of Ireland.  They are Presbyterian by faith. They are from the County of Atrim in the North of Ireland.  They are described as 'Presbyterians and bitterly opposed to the Roman Catholic faith.'  The Rogers were a remarkably intelligent, highly respectable and moral people.  Members of the Rogers family had emigrated from Scotland by the middle 16th Century.

Jeremiah Rogers

 Revolutionary Service:  Capt. James Newell's Company of Militia, Apr. 5, 1781; Capt. James Newell's Militia, 1782.[i]

 Jeremiah Rogers appears on the 1787 Montgomery County Personal Property Tax List "A", in the District of James Newell, Commissioner.  He is charged with his own tax and that of Reuben Rogers,  he also is shown possessing three (3) horses, mares, colts, & mules.  The commissioner visited at the home of Jeremiah Rogers on 9 May 1787.[ii]

 Jeremiah Rogers is the possible father of:

 Reuben Rogers, b. ca. 1740

Reuben Rogers

Reuben Rogers, possible son of Jeremiah Rogers??, m. Elizabeth (Unknown).

 Reuben Rogers is found on the 1787 Montgomery County Personal Property Tax List "A", in the District of James Newell, Commissioner.  The person charged with his tax was Jeremiah Rogers (his father?).  The commissioner visited at the home of Reuben Rogers on 9 May 1787.[iii]

 Reuben & Elizabeth (Unknown) Rogers is the possible father of:

1.  Thomas Rogers, Sr., b. ca. 1740, VA; d. ca. 1811/1812, Hawkins Co., TN; m. Jane/Jean (Unknown)
2.  Doswell Rogers, b. 1736, VA or Tyrone, Ireland; d. 1809 Hawkins Co., TN

Apparently, some of the brothers [namely - William, Jeremiah, and Reuben] went left Montgomery County, VA to settle in Sesquatchie Valley, Tennessee, Cherokee Indian Territory (later Marion Co., TN).  In a correspondence  from the Indian office at Washington  from Col. Return J. Meigs, Indian agent we find:

1.  The known ancestor of the Lee County, Virginia Rogers' is Thomas Rogers.  Thomas Rogers, b. ca. 1740, Virginia; son of (unknown); d. between 1811-1812, Hawkins Co., TN - his will was made 8 Sept 1811; m. Jean/Jane (Unknown). 

In his will he divided his land equally between his two sons, Dauswell and Thomas, Jr.  His wife, Jean in will, and four daughters were given portions.  His name appears on an election return list dated 9 Mar 1790[iv].  Thomas Rogers, Senior signed the petition to form Lee County, Virginia.  The Legislature passed the petition on 25 Oct 1792.  Thomas Rogers, Sr. was residing in Lee County, Virginia.  He owned 680 acres in Blue Springs and another 100 acres on the North Fork of the Clinch.  A land sale registered on 2 Dec 1796 shows[v]:  Thomas and Dauswell Rogers to William W. Clain.  For $400 in Hawkins County on the north side of Clinch Mountain on Little War Creek beginning on a spur of Clinch Mountain.  This land is near the present day Moorsburg.  The sale was witnessed by Drury Holt, Absolum Looney, Thomas ______, and Thomas Rogers.

In 1810, the following Rogers' are listed in Capt. Looney Co. Hawkins Co., Tenn. taxpayers listing:

 In 1812, one of the Thomas Rogers' is dropped from the taxpayers list however, Dauswell is shown with an additional 25 acs.  From William Nichols List in 1812 for Hawkins Co., Tenn. we find the following Rogers':

F      Thomas Rogers           75 acs.                   1 poll
F      Douswell Rogers         75 acs.                   1 poll

Doswell Rogers I

2Doswell Rogers, b.  1736, VA  or possibly  Tyrone Co., Ireland, d. 1809, Hawkins Co., TN.

He is shown on the 1767 List of Tithables for Pittsylvania Co., VA [present day Henry Co., VA].  In 1770/1771,  he is on the tithables for Botetourt Co., VA.  The area of Botetourt Co. in which he resided was included the following year into Fincastle County.   Doswell is found in the deed records of Fincastle and as a member of the militia.

Doswell participated in the establishment of this country.  He served for 29 days as horse hire during August 1774, he participated at the Battle of Point Pleasant, on the Ohio River Lord Dunmore’s War.  On 27 Dec 1774, 296  acs. were surveyed for Doswell in Fincastle Co., VA..  He signed the Oath of Allegiance to the Commonwealth of Virginia and refused all allegiances to George third King of Great Britain on 30 Sept 1777,  enlisting in Cox’s Company.  Doswell Rogers has been referred to as “old King Daus”, a hero of the Revolution.  Cox’s Company assisted in the defeat of Major Patrick Ferguson’s Loyalist on 7 Oct, 1780 at the Battle of King’s Mountain.  This company fought along side the forces of “lighthorse” Henry Lee’s Legion helping to bring about the defeat of Cornwallis at Yorktown.

His service continued after the Revolution, he served in May 1781 as a member of a Grand Jury in Montgomery Co., VA.  On 5 Mar 1782, Doswell together with John Rice (possible father of Lucinda Rice), posted bond for John Roberts.  Then on 3 Oct 1785, he witnessed the will of James Walling of Montgomery Co., VA (present day Grayson Co.).

Thomas Rogers apparently left Eastern Virginia around 1786, for he appears in Montgomery County, VA in 1787.  He is found in March 1788, on the tax list for Montgomery County.  Apparently he and his brother Doswell left Virginia sometime before March 1788, for they are  charged on 12 May 1788 for unpaid 1787 taxes (a notation beside their names indicates that they had moved to North Carolina).

Looney’s Gap, Lee Co., VA[xxxvii]; m. ca. 1818 to  Lucinda Rice, probable daughter of John M.C. (McClellan) Rice[xxxviii] [John M.C. Rice, b. ca. 1770]; b. 1801, North Carolina[xxxix]; d. bef 1879, Scott Co., VA[xl], bur. Looney’s Gap, Lee Co., VA.

 

In the 1830 Census[xli] Jesse Rogers is shown with six members in his household. At the out break of the Civil War Jesse and his family were in Scott County, Virginia.  Due to a strong Union sentiment and outspoken opposition to the war, he was taken as a prisoner during the time that the Confederacy held and held in a Confederate prison.  (Possibly Andersonville).  He came home after the war almost starved and in broken health.  Jesse Rogers was a landowner and land dealer in both Tennessee and Virginia.  Land purchases/sales: a) 199 acres purchased from Alexander Williams on 28 Jul 1815; b) 199 acres sold to Rachel & David Tyree in Apr 1816; c) 199 acres purchased on 21 Sept 1830.

 

Apparently Jesse and Lucinda separated for a time or Jesse was away visiting at the time of the Census, because we find in the 1870 Scott Co., VA Census that Lucinda Rogers is shown alone with her grandson Robert.  Jesse Rogers is found in the home of Hiram Herd in Hancock County, Tennessee.

In the 1850 Scott County, Virginia Census, Rachail Miller (b. 1836 - 14 in 1850 Scott Co. Census) is shown in the home of Jesse & Lucinda.  She was not a daughter of Jesse & Lucinda.  She was probably a girl hired to help Lucinda for a while or she could have been a relative that was in need of a home.[xlvii]

 

*$In the Scott Co. Cemetery Records there is a record of two small graves in a hallway of a barn on land where Jesse & Lucinda once lived.  It is speculated that two children were buried there during a terrible winter, at the time the ground was frozen so deep the only place that they were able to dig graves to bury the girls was in the barn hallway.
