RODGERS, ROGERS posted by Nelda Conner on Thursday, March 6, 1997

ROGERS, George W. born 1850 in GA. Last name was originally Rodgers. He married someone named Susan E. ?? after 1850. They had the following children all born in TX: Matt, George, Lee, Joseph, and Ada. According to a relative George and Susan were married in Callahan Co., TX; but it could have been Erath Co. George, Susan, and their children went to California and I found them on the 1910 census. Since the last child was born in TX in 1904 they must have left after that time.
