MICAJAH ROGERS is listed having been in War of 1812 and was detached from MONTGOMERY CO. NC, and I assume he could have been from a surrounding county to Montgomery such as RICHMOND Co. NC as well ?

We think MICAJAH ROGERS may be same person as the later MICHAEL ROGERS of the 1830 Carroll Co. TN census and is listed then as MICAJAH ROGERS on the 1840 Carroll Co. TN census and by 1850 Carroll Co. TN census is listed as :

1850 Carroll Co. TN census : Dist. 17

HH 1947
Mary Rogers F age 65 born NORTH CAROLINA
Martha Swayne F age 35 born NORTH CAROLINA
Ambrous B. " M age 02 born TENNESSEE

HH 1948
Mahala Rogers F age 33 born NORTH CAROLINA
James M. Rogers M age 09 born TENNESSEE

We assume that Martha Swayne is a daughter of Micajah Rogers and wife Mary, and that her son Ambrous B. Swayne is also living with them. Next door appears to be another ROGERS male of age to be son to Micajah And Mary Rogers and brother to Martha Swayne. We have no further info on this family but believe as SWAYNES also lived with our ROGERS family in the 1850 Carroll Co. TN census too, that our WILLIAM L. ROGERS and family of Montgomery Co. NC who moved to Carroll Co. TN by 1823 have a connection to Micajah Rogers but he is not listed in the Will of William Rogers so we discount him being a son to William L. Rogers b. 1770 Montgomery Co. NC who died 1842 in Carroll Co. TN.

William L. Rogers is son of JAMES ROGERS Jr. b. abt. 1746 whose land was entered into Montgomery Co. NC in summer of 1779 and this land was located along Long Creek, Riles Creek, and Curl Tail creek in Montgomery Co. NC.

Our William L. Rogers line is now DNA tested as well as tested on the haplogroup which is now listed as R1b1b2a1b5 indicating that our ROGERS are tested to be from SCOTLAND and not ENGLISH and were possibly the MacRORY scots who were SCOTTISH Mercenaries who went to Ireland from Scotland. We need to know if anyone is also reseaching MICAJAH ROGERS and or MICHAEL ROGERS who was born about 1785 NORTH CAROLINA and enlisted in the War of 1812 and was detached from MONTOMERY CO. NC and who possibly later on is the same man shown in CARROLL Co. TN Census's as both Michael Rogers and Micajah Rogers who had wife MARY.

If anyone has info on MICAJAH ROGERS b. abt 1785 NC and had enlisted in War of 1812 and detached from Montgomery Co. NC please post. I assume that Micajah Rogers could have been from any surrounding county to Montgomery, such as Richmond Co. NC which also was formed out of Anson about the time Montgomery was too. We have our Montgomery Co. NC records on our ROGERS but I have never researched ROGERS in Richmond Co. NC and need help if anyone has answers to Micajah Rogers/ Michael Rogers unknown parents, or his wife Mary, or their association with the SWAYNE family also of NC who are found in Carroll Co. TN by 1850.
