1.       Rachel Elizabeth Rogers,  b. 1794; m. 1808 to David Tyree . David & Rachel Tyree  moved to Burke Co., NC where David worked in a gold mine. See Tyree

2.       Nancy Rogers , b. 1799; m. 26 Apr 1827, Scott Co., VA (by Robert W. Wynn ) to Samuel H. Duff .

Questions here on parentage, they could or could not be the children of Roger & Nancy (Unknown) Rogers :

6.       Doswel Rogers l , b. 1790; m. to Patsey Unknown . The problem with this child is that this " Rogers " family of Surry did not use the name Doswell. I haven't been able to figure out exactly where he fits into the mix.
