Mother: Catherine Middleton Doswell there May be a connection to the following people. 1. John Rogers who died March 15, 1714 in York Co., Va. and was married to Agnes Adustan who was born around 1640 in York Co., Va.

2. They had a son named Thomas Rogers who was born Bet. 1670 and 1673. He Married Grizzell Clements of Abington Parish, Glouchester Co., Va.

3. They had a son named Clayton Rogers who could be a father or uncle to Adenstone who you have mentioned as a possible father to doswell. This would certianly make the connection between Rogers, Doswell, Adustan families. --- John Aduston is the man who began the Aduston entailment. There is a very good article in the 1989 NGS Quarterly, Vol. 77, #2, June, 1989,. which explains in full how it happened. However, the possible connection did not happen as you have described in steps #2 and #3. I am going to skip all of the generations in between John Aduston and where I think that my Doswell may have been created. You can read them for yourself in the NGS Quarterly. My brief lineage (which is still in question) possibly begins on page 97 +4 iii.

Many years after John Aduston died an Adduston Rogers married a Catherine Doswell. They have 3 children which are named in the York Co. VA Parish records. One chld is found in a grandmother's Will. The rest I am trying to document as being possible children--Doswell Rogers b. 1736 and Thomas Rogers ca 1740. (I suspect to be a brother, but NOT proven.)

I am looking for descendants of Adduston Rogers and Catherine Doswell of York Co.VA to Goochland Co. VA where Adduston died ca 1747. I have not found provisions for his family which may or may not exist because he died intestate. There is a very small inventory which reveals very little data.

At present I have found about 25 or 30 Adustones Rogers who are WEST of the Blue Ridge and are not from those of the Tidewater area with the possible excetpion of one. I am trying to keep a profile on each of them Possibly I have found a grandson of Catherine in Cape Girardeau, MO.
