Catherine “Caty” Rogers

3.  Catherine “Caty” Rogers ,  daughter of Dauswell  & Ann (Unknown) Rogers ,  m. to William Roberts [xli], d. by 7 Nov 1842.

Deed Book 5 – pages 5, 6, 7   Lee County, Virginia[xlii]

Joseph Rogers  had an agreement with old William Roberts  whereby he acquired an equitable interest to 1/8th to four tracts of land lying on Blackwater and including in one tract the same interest to the Blackwater saltworks.  The legal Title to the last was still in William Roberts name at the time of Joseph Rogers death and the widow, Susannah Rogers  who was then m. to James Walling  was entitled to one third of one eight of the said land as her dower, Since she wanted to sell these lands the title had to be cleared.

William  & Catherine ( Rogers ) Roberts  had nine (9) children:

3.1.        James Roberts

3.2.        William Roberts

3.3.        Thomas Roberts

3.4.        John Roberts

3.5.        Jesse Roberts

3.6.        Emanuel Roberts

3.7.        George B. Roberts

3.8.        Susan Roberts , m. to Jesse Robinett

3.9.        Elisabeth Roberts , m. to Adenston Rogers [xliii] (her 1st cousin), son of one of the brothers’ of Dauswell  & Ann (Unknown) Rogers .

4.  Elisha Rogers ,  son of Dauswell  & Ann (Unknown) Rogers ,  d. at age 70 of sudden death.

He was a member of the M. E. Church.

Elisha Rogers  had at least two (2) children:

4.1.        Joseph Rogers  – found a village in Giles Co., TN

Joseph Rogers

5.  Joseph Rogers ,  son of Dauswell  & Ann (Unknown) Rogers ,  m. to Susannah Shue/Shoe [xliv].  Susannah (Shue/Shoe[xlv]) Rogers  m 2nd Tennessee to James Walling .

In 1819 and in 1821 Susannah ( Rogers ) Wallen  was trying to clear the Title to land in which she had interest as her Dower Right.  The case eventually settles out of court for her Dower interest in the land.  From what I have here, it appears that William Roberts  (brother-in-law of Joseph Rogers ) sold her Dower and she then took it to court.  A settlement was reached while the children were still under age. 

Deed Book 5 – pages 5, 6, 7   Lee County, Virginia[xlvi]

Joseph Rogers  had an agreement with old William Roberts  [husband of Catherine Rogers ,  sister of Joseph] whereby he acquired an equitable interest to 1/8th to four tracts of land lying on Blackwater and including in one tract the same interest to the Blackwater saltworks.  The legal Title to the last was still in William Roberts name at the time of Joseph Rogers  death and the widow, Susannah Rogers  who was then m. to James Walling  was entitled to one third of one eight of the said land as her dower, Since she wanted to sell these lands the title had to be cleared.

However, we find that her children take the case back to Court in 1842.  All the parties in the suit are related to one another.

I remember going to Maryville as a child she would walk to the store and end up getting a ride home from the bag boy or someone else who worked there. Everyone liked her. They never owned anything of value she rented a storefront apartment before she moved in with us . She loved life and the Lord more than any earthly possession she had or could have ever owned. She battled diabetes for years and on April 1,1978 she died in prayer at the hospital. She died talking to the Lord in her prayer.
