My name is Cheryl Rogers and I am a descendant of Sarah Battle, born about 1725. Sarah is the mother of Shadrack (b. abt. 1746 and Robert Battles (b. 1755). My lineage is connected as follows:- Shadrack, Jr. married Nancy Shiflet and resided in Albemarle Cty., VA. They had a child Chevoit. Chevoit had a daughter, Sarah Battles (b. 1833), my gggrandmother. Sarah married John Coles and resided in Charlottesville, VA. She had a daughter, Susan (b.1862) who married John L. Slaughter. They had a son James Nicholas Slaughter b. 1882) who married Harriet Gibbs and had a daughter, Ruth Virginia (b. 1924). Ruth Virginia Slaughter married Ernest H. Bannister, Sr. and had a daughter Cheryl Ann ( b. 1950) -ME.

I have documentation of Shadrack's military service and his family migrations in the VA area. According to my records, they were at least "free people" prior to the Revolutionary War. I know that Sarah (#1) and her sons were free as early as 1762. Shadrach served in the war from 1777-80 or 81.

I have a lot of documentation for this family. Which part of Shadrack, Robert, or Jane 's family are you connected to? If you would like to give me your email address, I will be happy to forward my descendant tree to you. Possibly you can help me to fill in some of my blanks.

Cheryl A. Rogers
