Would anyone know of a David Rogers, b. 1769 in
NC? He would have been born in the area that
eventually became Rutherford Co. NC. We know
that he had children Isaac, Jacob, Millie and
Rowena. In 1810 he is in Rutherford Co., 1820
in Rutherford Co. when he disappears. In 1850
he is with a daughter Rowena and husband in
Cherokee Co. In 1860, he was in Polk Co.
with a daughter Millie. In 1850 and 1860,
he is listed in census as blind. We know that
daughter Rowena was born in Jefferson Co. TN
as was whom we think was another son, William.
Personally, I believe that he was a preacher
but cannot prove that. He sold his land in 1822
at which time he must have moved to Jefferson
Co. TN. When he became blind, must have moved
with dau to Cherokee Co.
Any help would be most appreciated.
