William Rogers and 14 kids
February 13, 2011 04:17PM
I'm looking for a William Rogers who lived "eight miles" from Pikeville, ca 1850 and had 14 kids, 10 boys and 4 girls. According to Leo Boles book on gospel preachers, Rogers had 7 sons who were Methodist ministers. His grandson, either Jefferson C. Rogers or Thomas Jefferson Rogers, was listed in the 1850 Bledsoe Co. census with his wife, Nancy Adaline Carder and three sons, James M., 2, and two 2 mo. old twins, David F. and Ephraim Hicks Rogers, the latter my grandfather. Any help appreciated. What woulld be eight miles from Pikeville in those days? Maybe I can pin William down that way.
Thanks,
