James ROGERS/RODGERS was born 2 July 1760 in Culpepper Co.,
VA. James was in Sevier Co., TN in 1788, and in Lincoln Co., TN in 1811. Marriage
records of Madison Co., Mississippi Territory show that a James ROGERS married
Polly SPEAKS on 17 June 1812. James was in Limestone County, Alabama from 1816
to about 1833 when he shows up in Franklin Co., TN, then in 1837 he is in Pickens
Co., AL. He dies in Monroe Co., MS in 1843. In his Will he names his wife, Mary,
and children Francis, Julia Ann, Martha, Silas, and Margaret. The wording of the
Will—the children of my current wife, Mary—hints at the existence of a former
wife and other children. Another query (without sources) indicates that James
had a son named Joseph Larkin Rogers, born 21 August 1794 in TN. James ROGERS
is a prime suspect for the father of my gg grandfather, Robert M. ROGERS, who
was born in TN ca 1794. Can anyone furnish additional clues about the families
of James ROGERS.

I have heard that my grandfather (William Dock MCELROY) and
his 1/2 brother, (Marion Tipton STANFORD) were raised by STINNETTS or STANHOPES.
My grandfather's death certificate said his mother was ? YAUBERRY. There is a
family in the 1870 census with a William that fits his age. It is the family of
Albert Yawberry, age 24;wife Matilda, age 20; William, age 8 (Was this William
possibly Albert's brother?)and Mitchell S. age 1/2. They were living in Sevier
Co, Dist 1. Another Family was Benjamin STINNETT,age 42; wife Molly, age 38 and
8 children. One of them was Tipton, age 12. Our Tipton was born in 1858, so
this age fits our Tipton STANFORD. Would like to know more about the above families
so that I can confirm or rule out any connection between them and my grandfather
and his brother. Thanks much!!

John and others. These names were carried on to some of Elihu's
children. I shall welcome any help with clues as to the parentage of
Elihu and the names of his brothers.
