Steven, are you still working on the Rogers family of Portage Co?
I am looking for connections with a Samantha Rogers. She was born 18 August 1840 [or 17 Aug 1841] in Portage County Ohio to Jospeh and Charlotte (Cox) Rogers. She m. in Ohio to Obed E. Hartman who was born in Pennsylvania but moved to Ohio when young.This was her second marriage.She first married Wheaton who was killed in the Civil War.
Samantha was an early pioneer of Labette County Kansas.She married four times that I know of and out-lived all of her husbands.She was a female born 100 years too early.She was one of the first women in Labette County to own land and had her own biography published in the county history.She reportedly always carried a rifle which she was not afraid to use!
Do you know which family she is related to in Portage County?
