I received an email response to my requests for information about the parents of my great-great grandmother Tabitha Rodgers Russell.Dennis Rodgers, an in-family source, confirmed my suspicion that Alexander Rodgers, born between 1781 and 1790 in Pennsylvania, was Tabitha's father.Tabitha's mother was Martha Taylor, born about 1705 in Pennsylvania.The father of Alexander is reported as living to 103.Martha's father was in the Revolutionary War, so if anyone discovers pension records that relate to this family, please let me know.
Children to Alexander Rodgers and Martha Taylor were
Elizabeth, born about 1817 in Ohio Tabitha , born on January 20, 1818 in Ohio (my gg grandmother) Eliza Jane, born on 07 Aug 1820 in Delaware County, Ohio Alexander, born on 23 Jan 1824 and died on 23 Mar 1895 in Defiance County, Ohio Ruben Taylor, born about 1829 and moved to Whiteside County, Illinois, as did his sister Tabitha Mary, born about 1831 Lovinia, born in December of 1834 Louis or Lewis, born about 1837 in Ohio Ann, no birth date Joseph, no birth date
I suspect that the elder Alexander Rodgers had relatives in early Delaware County in Ohio, but I do not know their names.Any help appreciated.
This family multipled enormously with many lines of descent.I ran an outline descent report from Alexander and it filled nine pages even though a fraction of his descedants were listed in my computer.
