Louisa, this may or may not help you. I am descended from Joseph Jefferson Rogers b. ca 1790?, it is strongly believed he is the son of Doswell Rogers, and was the brother of Elisha, William, Thomas, and Catherine Rogers, and possibly others. In 1842 the heirs of Joseph Jefferson sued the following my notes are in parenthesis,
James Roberts, William Roberts, John Roberts, Jesse Roberts, Emanuel Robers George B. Roberts, and Jesse Robinett and Susan his wife, heirs of William Roberts deceased. (note-husband of Catherine or her son William?)
and Emanuel Roberts, Elizabeth Roberts, and Joseph Roberts, heirs at law of Joseph Roberts deceased,(her son?)
and George Rogers, Commodore Rogers, Mary Rogers and Joseph Rogers, heirs of Elizabeth Rogers (wife of Adenston, daughter of Catherine) deceased,
and Sally Lawson, Peggy Lawson, Susan Lawson and Catheine Lawson, heirs of Mary Lawson, deceased.(was Mary daughter of Catherine as well?)
The defendants, James Roberts, William Roberts, George B. Roberts, Commodore Rogers, Mary Rogers, and Joseph Rogers, not having entered their appearance...
This was in Lee county, VA. The complaint is over some land and an interest in Blackwater Salt works, that Joseph Jefferson and Elisha Rogers went in on together, and was evidently sold/bought to William Roberts. In 1819 Joseph's widow sued to get her dower from the land, Joseph had died before the land could be transfered. His children were minors at the time. Elisha's family and Joseph's son went to Tennessee, and both settled in Hamilton County, as did their mother Susanah (Suzie Shue) Walling, who remarried James Walling (? time) I think I read somewhere, that Commodore was Elisha's nephew (he would have been great nephew, if Catherine Rogers was his grandmother) and that Elizabeth Roberts was married to her cousin, a son of one of her Roger's uncles, who had Adenston.
I know it is confusing, but somehow all these Rogers' from Scott/Lee county do tie together, Jennifer
