We share a common ancestry as Eliza Malvina ROGERS (Mrs. Frederick Bird Smith COCKE)is also a great.....grandmother.
I have an artical written by her son about the trip to Texas. It was published many years ago in the Kerrville paper as part of the history of the Cocke and Ridley families. Both are in my lineage.

If you have information on this lineage it would be helpful. I need verification such as locations of birth, marriage, death, census records as I will be working on this lineage for the DAR in the future.

I am in the process of proofing this lineage and have been notified by the NSDAR that I must prove connections between John Alexander Rogers his daughter, Elizabeth (Liza) Malvina Rogers; his wife Margret (Mary) Rogers. Any information such as birth, marriage, death, ect. confirmation will be helpful.

I am working on the Thomas Amis Revolutionary War hero supplement and this is in that lineage.

I was born in Del Rio, Texas and have information about various families in the area.

I have six supplements approved by the DAR and am glad to share information.

Please send me an email @ blue.jay2@verizon.net. I have just finished the last part of a supplement on John Alexander Rogers, Sr., for the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) which will be sent off next week. Yes, I have a list of all the children from the three marriages. Letters between the third and first child, wills, land deeds, pictures, etc.

Let me know which lineage you are trying to get. My is from Eliza Rogers (Cocke) who was my Great Great Grandmother.

John Alexander Rogers, Sr. (the one we are discussing) came to Texas with Sam Houston. He was his negotiator with the Cherokee Indians and participated with his grandson (lead negotiator for Texas) and son at the Council House Fight.

I will be glad to provide sources and information for you later. I am getting ready to take my camper out for the week end and just do not have time to give you what you may need in a proper way tonight. I will be back Sunday afternoon and if you let me know exactly what you would like to have I will be glad to share with you. I believe the best way to keep information for future generations is to have it located in as many places as possible.

Currently, I am working on getting supplements approved by the DAR and other organizations on the thirty+ Revolutionary War Heroes in my lineages and writing a series of books in story form to preserve these connections and the stories of my family. There will be six books in the series when I finish. Currently, three are just about finished (final proofing), the fourth is three fourths finished, the fifth and sixth are started.

I am more than glad to send you copies of the information I have and hope to have it cleared so others can connect to it if they desire membership in the DAR or just genealogical information.

This lineage connects with four others I have proved and there is another I will be working on in this lineage.

Hi! We are related. My great grandmother was Eliza Cocke Watkins, daughter of Frederick Bird Smith Cocke and Eliza Malvina Rogers who was the daughter of John Alexander Rogers. I am really confused about John Alexander Rogers. Was he related to Tiana Rogers who was married to Sam Houston? My father thinks there is a connection, I do not. Any thoughts?

I have just completed the first Daughters of the American Revolution Supplement for the John Alexander Rogers, Sr. lineage. This is the first time our lineage has been accepted.

I have considerable documentation and the children of his first three wives. I have some information that indicates he may have been his daughter from the Cherokee Nation who was married to Sam Houston. I am still not certain, but suspect this relationship.

My name is Peggy Ridley Homer. I was born in Del Rio, Texas. My Grandmother was Ethra Mae Vaughn (Ridley).

If you desire information from me, my address is:
Peggy Ridley Homer
500 Sunbeam Road
Lompoc, CA 93436
email: blue.jay2@verizon.net

If you contact me I will be glad to answer questions and share copies of original documents after Christmas.

Your Cousin,

Peggy
