There were TWO William Rogers living in Marion Co. TN. One William Rogers who was b. ca 1793 was married to Patience (mine) and the other William was married to a Mary Igou. In fact, William Rogers b. ca 1793 could have married in White Co. where his father, Wililam was living. Bledsoe is just a guess, but could be totally incorrect.
William who was b. ca 1793 had NO documeted middle name. There is a William Perry Rogers who was born FOUR generations later, but they are NOT the same person.
William's father was William (no middle name) Rogers born in Halifax Co. VA on 14 Oct 1763. He married Rosannah Heard. At the time of their marriage BOTH of their families were living in Mont. Co. VA. We believe that the circuit riding minister, Joseph Anthony, who was from Henry Co. VA married them in Mont. Co. and put his returns in HIS hometown courthouse. Although their marriage is listed as Henry Co., neither one of them was living there. There are deed records to prove their fathers' lived in Mont. Co. in 1786. Henry Co. is on the OTHER side of the Blue Ridge Mtns. Therefore, Rosannah Heard was NOT born in Kyles Ford, TN. She died there ca 1806. Most likely she was born East of the Blue Ridge.
I have no idea what happened to Mary Igou and her husband William Rogers, but they are not related as far as I know.
