The name Telatha Rogers does not appear on the Dawes Roll. However there are 395 people on the roll with surname Rogers.

She still could have Native American blood. Just did not register.

1850 US Census Marion, SC has a Telatha age 7 est b 1843 as in the household of Sarah Rogers age 45 with sibblings.  If this is yours go to Family Search (a free site) and just type in the name.  You will find this one among others listed.

US census records are not reliable to decide if a person is Native American. Many lied an said they were white to escape people prejudices.
