Re: Martin Co., NC Rogerson info
If you are of African-American, heritage, check into the annual "Rodger'stown Family Reunion" held at Rodger'stown, North Carolina. (Near Williamston). If Anglo-American, look into "Rodger Plantation" that used to be near Rocky Mount, N.C. (Extinct).
You may find Rodger, Roger, Rogerson are all linked in one way or another. Your interest in the "Down East" branch may be worth some collaboration. E-mail direct if you with to discuss further.
