This page's purpose is to provide a starting place for Descendants of the Rogers and Related Families of Estill County, Kentucky who are researching and collaborating with other family members in order to learn more about our family history and connections.

The title of this page is the same as the first book compiled and written by Ellen Stanley Rogers-35700 and Diane Rogers. Rogers and Related Families of Estill County, Kentucky published in 1980. The book contains 380 pages of research and genealogical data concerning the descendants of Susannah Rogers born before 1765. It is believed her husband was John or Charles Rogers. Her second husband was James Sparks.

Ellen and Diane Rogers followed the first book with The Rogers Book (1994) a 1049 page edition containing more information on Susannah's descendants plus descriptions of research by others along with titles of other books they had written. You may go to the website to download a copy of this book, if you wish. you can find the book by clicking the search label at the top of the page. Then click on Books in the drop down menu. Type in Diane Rogers for your search terms. Click on The Rogers Book. Once on the book page, click on view all pages. From the next pages near the bottom left, there will be a square icon with a down arrow in it. Click this button to print or download. I suggest printing to a PDF file.

Excerpt from page 1 (not numbered but directly before page 2) of The Rogers Book 1994: "Our work is not perfect', but maybe it will be a starting place for others who are wanting to research their family tree. We hope you enjoy our work and will start working on your own family roots. Don't take our work too seriously. We took information from many sources. You will need to prove and to document all facts."

Susannah's children are as follows:

Mary Ann "Polly" Rogers-16430 married William Sparks-2900; John Rogers-35779 married Elizabeth Betsy Larrison-202; Sarah Rogers-18284 married Isaac Dunaway-499; William Rogers-10534 married Abigail Larrison-113; Hiram Rogers-4949 married Malinda Lucy Milly Witt-639

It is the goal of this page to add the children and their descendants to the collaborative tree here on WikiTree. All members of this page can help by entering their own families to the tree and connecting to the ancestors from the book. In this way, we can all learn our history and meet our cousins near and far.

Our Cousin, Nathaniel Rogers (Rogers-30908), has started a Facebook group you are more than welcome to join! It is a place to share info, photos, and ask questions about family research and the Rogers DNA project.
