RAOGK: The Bible of Wells Rogers
This is a Random Act of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK) for a friend who is seeking descendants of the family of Wells Rogers, born about 1829 in New York. She found his Bible among her mother's things and would like to learn if her own family is related to Wells's family. She's done some research but hasn't yet made a connection. I suggested posting the Bible to see if anyone else might be searching and find the photographs here. So that's what we're doing. Unfortunately, the Bible does not have family history pages.
This is the information she's collected thus far:
Wells's parents were Hiram Rogers, b. 1795 and Cynthia.
His grandparents were Eliphalet Rogers, b. 1764 and Irene.
Wells Rogers married Henrietta, b. 1837.
Their children include Harriet Rogers, b. 1857; Mackintire, b. 1859; Marie, b. 1867; and Nelly J., b. 1878.
Wells's son, Mackintire, married Katherine and they had a daughter, Harriet J. in 1889.
