Georgia Citizens & Soldiers of the Amer Rev

I am reading the book by Robert S. Davis, Jr. and I found the following notes on pages 176-178 in a section entitled "Loyalist Irregulars."
It concerns a petition enclosing a list of the followers of Colonel Daniel McGirth which is found in the Sr. James Wright Papers Telamon Guyler Collection, Special Collections, University of Georgia. In the list of Daniel McGirth's gang is JOHN ROGERS. The petition is dated 5 Sept 1781 in Savannah and if anyone is interested in this Daniel McGirth it makes for very interesting reading.

In the same book on page 56 there is a report charging Dr. M.Leod with sundry crimes toward the American Prisoners wile on board the prison ships in the River Savanna. Three people filed affidavits to this and JOHN ROGERS was one of the three. This is from the The Gazette of the State of Georgia 13 May 1784 p. 1 c. 1 House of Assembly Augusta, Thursday, July 31, 1783.

I would appreciate any information about the John Rogers listed above or any other information about a John Rogers in Georgia during this period.

I am attempting to trace the lines of the John Rogers b abt 1725 d 09 Aug 1790 in Fairfield Co., SC . I know of eight known children and it is possible that he married a Ledford. There is a John Rogers who took an oath of allegiance 25 Aug 1778 in Amelia Co, VA but I have no idea this is the John Rogers I am researching.

I would like to sort out some of these John Rogers if anyone has any information about any of them.

Thank you!

Joyce Phillips
