See 1780 MONTGOMERY COUNTY TAX LIST:
ROGERS, James
ROGERS, John

As you know, these names both presumably over age 21 in 1780, to be taxables. Certainly places them there at early time. Have you checked Va. land grants for James (or other Rogers) in old Augusta/Botetourt or Montgomery Counties. Your James sounds old enough to have been the one there in old Montgomery Co. in 1780. Might have been in same part that became Wythe, then later Grayson.


I don't have the notes with me, but I used to wonder whether this William Eaton may have been related to one of the same name over in Surry County, NC. A Surry genealogy web site mentions that he was an officer in Rev War. Always a possibility that James
Rogers have served with him there?
