Need info on J. R. Rogers of the 1880 Johnson Co. AR census shown below. This same J. R. Rogers purchased land in BOONE CO. AR by 1885 from a Mr. Edward McMillan of Texas. Then J. R. Rogers and family moved to Boone Co. AR from JOHNSON CO. AR it is believed. Need to know which ROGERS group he was in around JOHNSON CO. AR in that 1880 era. Tina Rogers Beller
1880 Johnson Co. AR Census, PERRY TWP.
HH 92-92 ROGERS, J. R. WM 28 Farmer AR TN TN , Nancy M. WF 33 Wife AR AL AL , Minerva E. WF 9 Dau. AR AR AR , Cynthia F. WF 4/12 Dau. AR AR AR
J. R. Rogers was age 28 b. AR and his father born in TN and mother born in TN. So my calculations for year of birth for J. R. Rogers is about 1852 in Arkansas.
Listed in HH 90 near to J. R. Rogers is another ROGERS family who is J. C. ROGERS age 53 b. TN who had his mother CYNTHIA ( age 87 b. NC ) living with him in this 1880 Johnson Co. AR Census. Also listed in same household of J. C. ROGERS age 53 b. TN is his two nieces, Cynthia Rogers age 24 b. AR and Mary E. Bray age 9 b. AR. Could be that J. C. ROGERS is the father to J. R. ROGERS as they lived close to one another.
If anyone has further information on these ROGERS listed on the 1880 Johnson Co. AR Census in PERRY TOWNSHIP, please post. Or if anyone in Boone Co. AR has information on J. R. ROGERS who later moved to that county, please post as well.The land Mr. J. R. ROGERS purchased in 1884-1885 Boone Co. AR from Mr. McMillan of TX is listed on the deed and described as being the OLD COFFMAN FARM.Mr. McMillan had been born in Carroll Co. AR but later moved to LAMPASAS TX and his father is buried in the old ROGERS Cemetery near Gaither.There may be further connections of the McMillan lines and the ROGERS lines including the families of JONES.
