    Notes 
    • "According to Rogers family historian, Col. Sidney D. Rogers, the surname is traced back to Roger Roberts (Roger ap Roberts) of Ciltalgarth, Parish of Llanfor, County Merioneth, Wales. Roberts became a Quaker in Wales, and was part of the Welsh emigration to America at the turn of the 17th century. They settled in the Welsh Tract in Pennsylvania. As a rule, Welsh people were provincial in preserving their language and customs, and they were loyal to their homeland in Wales." [5]
    • "Rogers lived in Back Creek Valley near present-day Gainesboro, but there is no record of his owning land. He applied for a Fairfax grant for 114 acres that appears to have been in Hampshire County. John Mauzy achieved a land survey for this plot in 1754, and Rogers died before a Fairfax grant was awarded to him. In 1777, Evan Rogers testified before Magistrate robert White that this father, John Rogers, died without a will and that his widow, Ellen, "has been dead many years." The reference to his mother as a widow suggests that Ellen may have briefly survived her husband John." [5]
