Hi! Do you know anything of the Shadrach Rogers who was living next door to Joseph Nathan Rogers in Sumter Co., AL in 1840? I believe they owned land together, as their names appear on deeds of one another. I believe they may be brothers!
I know very little about my Shadrach, other than he came from SC (so did your Joseph), lived next to Joseph on 1840 Sumter Co., AL census, then was in Tattnall Co., GA in 1850. I think he died around 1855, when his wife (Cynthia/Synthalia) and son (Joseph) sell his land and move to Sumter Co., SC.
Do you know anything more about your Joseph than you did when you first posted this message? I would love to hear from you!!
I have done a bit of research on this Joseph and Shadrach and do strongely believe they are brothers.
