My ROGERS in Montgomery Co. NC are not Isom and Nathaniel that I can determine at this time. HOWEVER our recent DNA Test on our William L. Rogers line shows that we have a close match with sevearl including a line out of JOHN ROGERS b. 1617 England who arrived in James City Co. VA ( Jamestown ) in 1635 aboard ship "GEORGE" with his brother THOMAS ROGERS. No further info on THOMAS ROGERS. This line also is same as WILLAM ROGERS and his 2nd wife ELIZABETH CARTWRIGHT of SURRY CO. VA. So far we cannot see our connections to them and are in process of sorting out some of their family names in records we have for our ROGERS. One such name is an ISHAM or ISOM ROGERS shown to be in this line in Surry Co. VA and later in NC. I was just wondering if the ISOM ROGERS In the voters list with NATHANIEL ROGERS could be that family of Surry Co. VA to NC and had they passed through Anson/ Montgmery / Stanly Co's NC regions then when our ROGERS still lived in NC ?
MY DIRECT ROGERS line in Montgomery Co. NC are :
JAMES ROGERS Sr. b. between 1700-1720 who signed the 1774 Anson Co. NC petition with his son JAMES ROGERS Jr. and a JOHN ROGERS( no info on John ).
JAMES ROGERS, Jr. b. abt. 1746 NC ( probably born on land that became Anson Co. NC by 1750 ). James Rogers, Jr. signed the 1774 Anson Co. NC petition with his father listed above, as well as the John Rogers we have no info on. James Rogers Jr. also had other petitions he signed in Montgomery Co. NC and had entered his many acres on Long Creek in 1779 Montgomery Co. NC. James Rogers, Jr. and his son Frederick Rogers are also on the 1790 Montgomery Co. NC Census. James Rogers ( Jr. ) and his sons Frederick and William (L. ) Rogers are all on the 1800 Montgomery Co. NC Census. By 1810 Montgomery Co. NC Census we feel that James Rogers, Jr. had lost his wife and is then living with his son William shown as "W. ROGERS" on that 1810 Montgomery Co. NC Census. We believe that James Rogers Jr. may have died between 1810-1816, for his sons William Rogers and John Rogers ( b. 1775 NC ) both signed the 1816 Montogmery Co. NC Court House Petition that failed, along with Basil Rogers ( son of William). By 1823 William Rogers and son Basil Rogers sold their Montgomery Co. NC ROGERS Lands along Long Creek to Mathias Barringer and he had the BARRINGER GOLD MINE along that area.
WILLIAM ( L. ) ROGERS b. abt. 1770 Montgomery Co. NC ; md. abt. 1790 to wife named NANCY UNKNOWN ( possibly Nancy E. Cheatum / Chittim etc. ). They had several children in Montgomery Co. NC and later in 1823 sold their land in Montgomery Co. NC and moved to Carroll Co. TN. with their children, and their spouses and their grandchildren. Over 85% of early arrivals in Carroll Co. TN are crossreferrenced in both Carroll Co. TN and earlier in Montgomery or Anson Co. 's NC. So it was a mass migration out of NC into Carroll Co. TN. in about 1820-1825.
BASIL ROGERS b. abt. 1794 Montgomery Co. NC ; md. Rebecca Unknown and had children there and later moved to Carroll Co. TN with his extended famlies and was later a Judge and Justice of Peace for his Dist. 17 in Carroll Co. TN.
GREEN D. BERRY ROGERS b. abt. 1825 CARROLL CO. TN. First of Basil Rogers children to be born in Carroll Co. TN after his move there from Montgomery Co. NC.
