Thomas Jefferson Rogers Family

Classification: Query
Surnames: Rogers, Ramey/Rainey, Ragsdale
The family of this son of James Peleg Rogers and Winifred Ann Lane disappears in the 1870 Titus (now Morris) Co. census. This Thomas Jefferson Rogers is the one born September 18, 1805 in Athens, GA and married Caroline C. Ramey/Rainey in 1831 in Georgia and practiced as a lawyer in Jefferson, TX in the 1840s into the 1860s along with his brothers James Harrison Rogers and Martin Dickinson (Dixon?) Rogers. The 1850 Titus Co. and 1860 Daingerfield census lists Thomas Jefferson Rogers' children: (estimated birthdates)
Louisa 1832
Walter 1834
Andrew 1837
Frances (Caroline) 1840 (actually September 27)
George A. 1841
Catharine 1847
Allice (Alice?) 1852
Since wife C. (Caroline) C. Rogers is found with daughter Alice Ragsdale in the 1870 Jefferson, Marion Co., census, it is assumed that Thomas died between 1860 and 1870, but I have not yet found any other children in the 1870 census or anywhere else after 1860. I don't yet find a record that all the sons died in the Civil War and I don't know who the daughters (except Alice) married. Surely not everyone except for Alice and Frances (who I descend from) disappeared.
