In 1870 their neighbors were William A J & his wife Martha.
William A. J. Rogers, b. GA, 35, dry goods merchant, $1550 real estate & $2000 personal property although the Census taker writes down whatever valuee is told to him

Didn't find either family in the 1880 Census.

In 1910 Martha, Benjamin and John (her son) were living in King Co., TX.

I didn't find John Rogers death info in Ancestry or FamilySearch. However, you can contact the Motley County Clerk, www.co.motley.tx.us/default.aspx?Motley_County/ .

I looked through the indexed cemeteries that are online but didn't find him there either.

Cemeteries of Motley County Texas, www.cemeteries-of-tx.com/Wtx/Motley/ListMotley.html

Cemeteries of Motley County, www.hiddenancestors.com/txmotley/cemeteries.htm

He wasn't listed in findagrave.com either

After you find his death date, you might be able to get a copy of his obituary from the Motley County Library, Matador, TX. There doesn't appear to be genealogical society in this county. Successful Searching!
