I don't research MECKELNBURG ROGERS that are not my lines, however, many good RESEARCHERS in Mecklenburg Co. NC do research these ROGERS / RODGERS lines and have provided good documentations. Per some MECKELNBURG CO. NC RESEACHERS,who use verified court records and files, the DAVID ROGERS of this deed is son of JOSEPH ROGERS, Jr. and wife MARGARET. JOSEPH ROGERS Jr. ( who had wife Margaret ) is son of JOSEPH ROGERS, Sr. and wife MARTHA POORE.

JOSEPH RODGERS who is son of JOHN RODGERS/ ROGERS the ULSTER SCOT had wife ISABELLA WHITE as others have posted and verified their data.

LEONARD's files are confused and he used various ROGERS/ RODGERS lines and combines all their court records as if they are his own verificaitons of his GEORGE ROGERS / RODGERS family, by adding in individuals who are not of these many ROGERS/ RODGERS lines in AMERICA, so that his own line of GEORGE RODGERS will have verified siblings, but are incorrect information on his line. BEWARE of LEONARD'S work as it is a very confused file. He has combined many verified families into a mess of an unverified line in his GEDCOM, so his GEORGE ROGERS and family will look like it is a verified line that is factual.

We all make mistakes in our work, but LEONARDS work goes beyond honest mistakes as he deliberately confuses ROGERS/ RODGERS lines of many researchers who have spent years verifying their ROGERS/ RODGERS lines with Court Records and documentations. I have been told, that GENFORUM is aware of this situation with LEONARD. Most of us post on here to learn and share documentations not to confuse everyone. Honest mistakes are common but it is up to each of us to verify our lines and not manipulate others work.

Anyone using Leonard Turnbull's files as fact, can expect the facts to be confused of many ROGERS / RODGERS lines in Amererica, and most realize his antics are a manipulation of those who do verify their lines.
