It is BELIEVED that Thomas  is the bro of old Doswell  of Halifax Co. The main reason being he has a son named Dauswell  and that name is carried on in his line as well. They are found living in the same places across VA. In 1787 Thomas and Dauswell leave Mont Co. and move to NC according to the tax records. However, this was Hawkins Co. NC, which shortly became Hawkins Co. TN. Some people assume that they really went into what we call NC today, however, that is not true[1].  Checking the maps closely you can see that old Thomas and old Doswell still ended up living very near to each other.  Doswell have lots of property on the Clinch River just across the line of what was then Hawkins Co.[2]

Ella Rae's Thomas  and Nancy Unknown  are not related in any way to old Thomas. He cannot be old Thomas' son.

Why not son of Thomas  & Nancy (Unknown) Rogers [3] --

1. Old Thomas  was not named Reubin .
2. Old Thomas
 was not m. to an Elizabeth .
3. Old Thomas
 was not living in Accomack Co. or Surry Co. in 1785. He was in Montgomery Co. VA.

Thomas Rogers,  Sr.

aka Old Thomas Rogers

The known ancestor of the Lee County , Virginia Rogers  ' is Thomas Rogers .

Thomas Rogers,  [possibly, NOT PROVEN, son of Adenstone  & Catherine (Doswell) Rogers [4] of York Co., VA] b. ca. 1740, Virginia ; son of (unknown); d. between 1811-1812, Hawkins Co., TN - his will was made 8 Sept 1811; m. to Jean /Jane Unknown .  

In his will he divided his land equally between his two sons, Dauswell  and Thomas , Jr. His wife, Jean  in will, and four daughters were given portions.

Although it appears on the surface that Thomas Rogers  did a lot of moving from place to place, what happened was actually the shifting of lines on a map.  

·         His name appears on an election return list dated 9 Mar 1790, Hawkins Co., TN[5]. 

He was living on his farm in Hawkins County when a shift in the state line placed his farm into the state of Virginia for a brief time.  It was during this time that he signed the Russell Co., VA petition.  Thomas Rogers ,  Senior signed the petition to form Lee County , Virginia . The Legislature passed the petition on 25 Oct 1792. Thomas Rogers Sr.  was residing in Russell County (an area that would become Lee Co.), Virginia[6].

·         Shortly, thereafter the state line shifted once again and returned his home to Hawkins Co.  So as it can be seen - it appears that he moved around, but it was just the state line that did all the moving

Because of the constant variance in the line separating VA from TN that Thomas  was still living on the land in Hawkins, but at the time of this signing they may have put his land in VA thereby giving him the right to sign the petition. It would also help his relatives in Russell to have a courthouse nearer to them than 150 miles. However, there was NO Lee Co. at the time that this was signed. It was still Russell Co.[7]  

In 1810, the following Rogers ' are listed in

Thomas Rogers ,  Sr., and his son Doswell Rogers Jr.  left Virginia sometime before 1787, for they are charged on 12 May 1788 for unpaid 1787 taxes (a notation beside their names indicates that they had moved to North Carolina ).  The area to which they were moving was what we presently call Tennessee , at the time of their move it was known as Hawkins Co., North Carolina . Shortly after their arrival in Hawkins Co, NC it became Tennessee .

 A land sale registered on 2 Dec 1796 shows[8]:  Thomas  and Dauswell Rogers  [residents of Hawkins Co., TN] to William W. Clain . For $400 in Hawkins County on the north side of Clinch Mountain on Little War Creek beginning on a spur of Clinch Mountain . This land is near the present day Moorsburg. The sale was witnessed by Drury Holt , Absolum Looney , Thomas {Illegible} , and Thomas Rogers .

Apparently Jesse  and Lucinda separated for a time or Jesse was away visiting at the time of the Census, because we find in the 1870 Scott Co., VA Census that Lucinda Rogers  is shown alone with her grandson Robert. Jesse Rogers  is found in the home of Hiram Herd  in Hancock County, Tennessee.

In the 1850 Scott County, Virginia Census, Rachail Miller  (b. 1836 - 14 in 1850 Scott Co. Census) is shown in the home of Jesse & Lucinda. She was not a daughter of Jesse  & Lucinda . She was probably a girl hired to help Lucinda for a while or she could have been a relative that was in need of a home[lxxvi].

John M.C. (McClellan) Rice was listed in the 1850 Hawkins Count Tennessee Census in the home of Orville Rice. The assumption that he is the father of Lucinda Rice  is based in part on the fact that the last child of Jesse & Lucinda (Rice)Rogers was named Patton M.C. Rogers . This assumes the M.C. in his name would be to honor her father.
