Please include me in your new mailing group. I am descended from John Rogers (1757-1822) through his son, Benjamin, born circa 1804 in Claiborne County, Tennessee and married 10 December 1828 in Washington County, TN to Artemesa Rogers, daughter of Joseph Rogers. Joseph is believed, but not yet proven, to have also been a son of Benjamin Rogers, Sr.

My ancestor, Benjamin (born circa 1804), is proven to be a son of John Rogers (1757-1822) by a deed, filed in Claiborne County, TN, naming "Benjamin Rogers of Washington County, Tennessee" as conveying his portion of "a certain tract or parcel of land formerly belonging to my father, John Rogers, deceased." [reference: Claiborne County, TN Deed book K, page 261 - Benjamin Rogers to William Rogers, Jr. 11 November 1831]

Dear Ms. Stone:

I just saw your query on "Rootsweb" regarding Zachariah and Stacy (Rogers) Freeman. Stacy was the daughter of Joseph Rogers (ca 1765-1828), an early settler of Washington County, Tennessee, and Elizabeth (maiden name unknown). Joseph was the son of Benjamin Rogers, Sr., who came to America from England in 1739, settling first in Virginia and later moving to Blount County, Tennessee, where he died circa 1802.

I am descended from Joseph and Elizabeth's daughter, Artemesa Rogers, who married her first cousin, Benjamin Rogers, in Washington County, Tennessee, 1828. Artemesa was a sister of your ancestor, Stacy (Rogers) Freeman.
