I am working on a theory that the Ro(d)gers and Brown families moved from Pitt Co., NC to Caldwell Co., Ky together, or at least 1 branch did about 1810. Another family I belive may have traveled with them are the Sanders and probably others.
Anna Brown b. 28 Feb 1789 Pitt NC m. John Rogers b. Abt. 1785 They raised their children in Caldwell Co., KY and I believe are buried in the Drennan Family Cemetery Princeton, KY.
Anna's father was Arthur Brown b. 1761 Pitt Co., NC. He was a Rev War Vet from Pitt co., NC. He applied for a pension in 1813 in Caldwell Co., KY, and in I believe 1823 or 1826 transferred this pension to Carroll Co., TN where he lived until he died.
I have a copy of a letter from Arthur to his daugher Anna Brown Rogers in 1848 where he asks about Drury Rodgers.
I am trying to reconstruct Arthur's family of origin.
