I am seeking those who have the Rogers surname attached to Brady and Prichard and Hodson. The time around the 1750's to 1850's in North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri and possibly Ohio.
My maternal grandfather descends through David Pritchard and Catherine Sharp both born about 1800 in Claiborne Co. TN. Their daughter, (according to the book Know Your Relatives: The Sharps ) Sarah married an E.V. Rogers June 12, 1853. The daughter of Sarah and E.V. Rogers, Anne married a man named E.R. Carter. Many in the Pritchard/Sharp family settled in MO in 1830's and I suspect possibly some may have lived in Ohio and others further south. Many descendants of David's son Laban Pri(t)chard settled in Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma (I have yet to identify many of them).
I also share DNA with people with the surname Rogers who also share the surname Brady with me. My Brady matches (paternal great-grandmother) link to many is Hugh Brady b. 1709 IR settled in Cumberland, Pennsylvania in 1730's.
My maternal 5th great grandmother was Elizabeth Rogers b. about 1753 (location unknown-- suspect Wales (according to family lore).
GEDmatch shows my parents are not related.
I am looking for people who share these surname combinations in their lines to see if I can match DNA with any of them to determine if the Rogers surname can possibly be from one source.
Basically, I have loads of Rogers in my searches and I am trying to sort them. Any advice greatly appreciated.
