Since your searching RODGERS in Benton Cnty I thought I'd ask if you've requested marriage records before 1880? If so, where? My GGgrandfather's death certificate was vague and I'm hoping that a marriage record will supply me with more.
I'll still keep my eyes peeled for your line. I'm on the AOL genealogy chat lines at night too! Maybe something will come about.
Thanks a bunch. I had gotten these dates from the cemetary index on the Benton County, AR webpage. I sincerely wish we were related but I think it's highly unlikely. I found out this year that James Greene Rodgers was an only son. Appreciate the help. Debbra

Not sure if this helps, but sometimes you never know. It looks like you have a lot of people you can request death records for to find out further information. Atleast most of them stayed in Benton County, AR. You will only have to contact:

Sanders, all collected from the Northwestern Arkansas History, Ancestry. com. I am looking for Edward P. Wilson who married Mary Rodgers in Benton,and his ancestry. Thanks, if you know any info.
The Mosteller.org is my fathers family. One of the Mosteller
girls in Fredrick Vardy's line married into the Rodger family
in Springdale/Fayettevill AR.
