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.


 New information has come to light and has shed great insight into the Rogers early family history.  Special thanks to those who have shared information, especially Eleanor Rogers Edmundson ; she has provided me with my much need clarification of the 3 different Rogers ' families. –

My Rogers Trouble

My trouble with the Rogers ' family lines may be that I, in fact, descend from two of the three families. There may also be a connection to the Doswell Roger  line – thorough my father's Vaughn line [this has not been explored].
