I'm sure you know that Quakers practiced pacifism, so this would rule out fighting in the ARW, etc...and, that Quakers must marry only other Quakers, or be disowned.
It's easier to 'work' from a known, what is the earliest documented generation you have? Maybe we could go from there, rather than a lot of 'maybe's and 'about's. Also, why do you think these folks were Quakers? Sometimes that contains a clue as to know where to look.
I checked the CD of PA wills and found this, that might be something to consider;

ROGERS, THOMAS. West Nottingham.
March 18, 1772. May 27, 1772.Provides for wife Catherine. To sons William and Thomas plantation I now live on. To daughter Rachel, son Saml., to daughter Elizabeth 20
each, the latter at 18. As there is a burying ground on my plantation my will is that 1/4 acre be set apart for that use forever and privilege of one perch wide to the great road south of the same to and from it. Executors: Sons Wm. and Thomas.Wit: Timo. Kirk, Wm. Knight, Jacob Brown.

this is an earlier generation, of probably, the same family;
Pennsylvania Wills, 1682-1834

ROGERS, THOMAS. West Nottingham. Husbandman.
March 7, 1744/5. September 20, 1748. C. 58.
Provides for wife Elizabeth. To daughter Hannah Brooks 5. To sons William and Rowland 20 shillings each. To daughter Elizabeth Knight 20 shillings. To son John 30. To daughter Deborah Ruddell 20 shillings. To daughters Priscilla Rogers and Susanna Rogers 20. Remainder real and personal to son Thomas. Executors: Wife and son Thomas. Letters to Thomas, the widow renouncing.
