Wasn't SION ROGERS a Chickasaw or Choctaw or Native American ?I seem to recall early research work on him saying that but all I really know is that he was the first SHERIFF of CARROLL CO. TN.For some reason I am associating him with the ROGERS in TIPPAH CO. MS but that may be inaccurate but seem to recall something about him being in MS later on ???
The TIPPAH CO. MS line of ROGERS out of William Riley Rogers line are out of GEORGE ROGERS and he is somehow linked with the same ROGERS group in Surry Co. VA and Jamestown as our DNA MATCHE was. .but look it up to be sure.
One of the families in Tippah Co. MS was in Carroll Co. TN when a baby was born and I seem to recall they are a ROGERS group as well, and it confused us all researching the CARROLL CO. TN ROGERS and the TIPPAH Co. MS ROGERS until we realized it was just a young mother to be from MS. visiting relatives in Carroll Co. TN. and they didn't seem to be connnected with our WILLIAM L. ROGERS line who also had a son named WILLIAM RILEY ROGERS b. 1805 too but ours was born in NC and the WILLIAM RILEY ROGERS b. 1805 who lived in Tippah Co. MS was born in TN.Later it turns out our DNA are in same lines of Jamestown VA group who were in Surry Co. VA..
