Searching for information on a Sylvana Rogers born about 1842 parents: Wm Riley Rogers and Nancy Robinson. Have a copy of a picture taken when she and her sister Nancy E were in their late teens. Does anyone know if she married and who if so? That's the only name I've found for her.

Thank you

Hello All,

I have a few pieces missing from this family and would like to know if anyone has the missing pieces.

Almira Elizabeth ROTEN (d/o William Harrison ROTEN/ROETEN & Mary Ann ?) m James Noah ROGERS (his parents; William Riley ROGERS & Nancy ROBERTSON/ROBINSON). Does anyone know the parents of Nancy ROBERTSON/ROBINSON?

Almira's daughter, Rosa Jane ROGERS (1877 - 1927) m Seaborn Hiram RAINEY (grandson of Hiram Kennedy RAINEY & Margaret BLACKWOOD, sister of India Judah BLACKWOOD).

Rosa Jane ROGERS' sister, Mary Catherine ROGERS (1883 - 1971) m Noah J. Hugh Digger ROBERTSON. His father was Mathey Emerson ROBERTSON. Does anyone have further information on these ROBERTSONS?

Almira's brother, Jefferson Davis ROTEN (1859 - 1941) m Martha Othella ROBERTSON. Marth's parents were, Thomas J. ROBERTSON and Edith CHAMPION. Thomas' father was Asa ROBERTSON, mother Nancy CHISOM. I have been working for awhile attempting to attach Asa ROBERTSON (who was in Tippah Co., MS at the same time as my Susannah ROBERTSON BLACKWOOD) to my line.

Almira's sister, Frances Emaline ROTEN (1865 - 1947) m Hiram William BURROW (1865 - 1945).

Almira's brother, William Carrol ROTEN (1846 - 1910) m India Joanna BURROW (b 1848)

Almira's sister, Sarah Adaline ROTEN m J. M. ROBERTSON (1851 - 1930).

I am from the Andrew C. BLACKWOOD & Susannah ROBERTSON Families. Their daughter, India Judah BLACKWOOD (1812 - 1899, Alcorn Co., MS) m #1 Ishman BURROW (abt 1801, NC - betw 1850 - 1858?)
m #2 John Henry ESSARY

India's son, Andrew Harmin BURROW m Sarah WIN. Their daughter, India Judah BURROW (abt 1865, MS --??) m John Neely CRUM. India BLACKWOOD ESSARY, her husband, John ESSARY & her mother BLACKWOOD 98 yrs of age (I believe) were living w/John N. CRUM in the 1870 Census Alcorn Co., MS.

John's brother, Thomas CRUM m Mary Etta ROBERTSON/ROBINSON (1881 - 1958).
I know there is a connection between the BURROW families and the ROBERTSON line, but I don't have enough information yet.

Any help would be appreciated,
Linda Cashen Gaunt

Noah Robison was the son of Matthew Emerson Robinson/Robison/Roberson and Margaret Settlemires. She was the daughter of Hucken Settlemires and Elizabeth C. Jones. They are buried at Shiloh Methodist in Tippah County as well as Matthew'Dence' and Margaret. Matthew's parents were George Robinson and Lucretia Streetman. Lucretia was the daughter of Jehu B. Streetman and Mary 'Polly' Strickland who are buried in Alcorn County at Griffin Cemetary. George Robinson died in Itawamba County at a young age. The only proof I have of him is an 1850 Itawamba census as George E Roberson age 23 from TN. Would love to find out more on him and the Robinson family. I am descended from Noah and Mary Robinson thru their son Lawrence Robinson and Claudia Leona Smith. Thanks.
