I just know there has to be someone out there that knows of my gggrandfather.
Wilson Rogers b. January 22, 1843 in Mississippi and died May 26, 1899 in Coryell Co., Texas.Both of Wilson's parents were born in Mississippi.Didn't families usually migrate together? I do find a James C. Rogers on the 1880 Coryell County census, his age is 30 so he was born about 1850 and his wife's name is Isabella(27) and their children are Willard W.(9),Mary M.(6), Zana I.(4) and Robert H. (2). Does anyone know of this family? James C. was born in Mississippi and so were his parents, just coincidence? Could this be Wilson's younger brother? What does that W in his son's name stand for?
I can first account for Wilson in texas in the 1860's but he could have been here before this time. His first child was born in 1867 and he married Sarah Elizabeth Williamson before this birth in Coryell County, so maybe the mid 1860's.
