If you provide the profile ID of the two people in question, it would help us answer your question better. As is, the profile which is linked to the question does not have the last name of Rogers, and is also Red privacy, so no details are available to see.
Michael William Rogers was born in 1812 in Georgia.  He and his family are listed in the 1850 census for Texas.  Wikipedia states that Burwell Rogers was his father, but I have never seen any verification for this.  I would  like to know the source of that information.
