I don't know the name of his first wife, but he had at least one child with her, Ida Rogers, b. 1883 in Illinois. He married Lucy Ann Morris in 1888. She was born in 1856 in Gallatin or Saline Co. Ill. She was the daughter of Valentine Morris and Eliza Jane Hall.
I found her in the 1900 census in Lake Co, TN. She was a widow with her step-daughter Ida, 17,b.1883/84Her son Charley Henry ( My grandpa )b. 1890 and Mabel, b. 1892 all were born in Ill.
My GGrandma Lucy told several family members that they had lived in KY at some point.
My G Grandfather , William Leroy Rogers was said to have died in a mining accident in Illinois abt 1899.
Lucy and her children stayed in TN for several years. Ida married a Johnson and moved to ARK - Tex -OK. Mabel married Homer Davis abt 1912. He died soon after and she married Clarence Hawkins and moved to St Charles Co , Mo. Charley married Ada Williams from Lake Co TN in 1908 They had several children therethen moved to West Alton Mo.
I am truly stuck on my Grandpa William. He likely went by a nickname, Billy, Bill, Roy as most of the Rogers boys did. My Dads name was Andrew Jackson Rogers, b 1926 in Marston , Mo. He died in St Charles Co in 1999. There were 13 children in Charleys family.
