Who was the first wife of John M Rogers?

The 1900 census for Houston Co TX lists the family of John M Rogers.
Name: John Rogers
Home in 1900: Justice Precinct 6, Houston, Texas
Age: 54
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1846
Birthplace: Alabama
Relationship to head-of-house: Head
Spouse's Name: Low (Lou) ( I submitted the alternate name of Louella)
Race: White
Neighbors: View others on page
Household Members: Name Age
John Rogers 54
Low Rogers 34
(Walter) Wattie J Rogers 22 TX
Berthe N Rogers 14 TX
Nettie A Rogers 11 TX
Jennie L Rogers 9 TX (name was Jane Jennie L Rogers)
Lena May Rogers 16 TX
Roscoe Rogers 8 TX
Nancy A Moore 16 TX
Henry Moore 14 TX
William Moore 11 TX
Geo F Moore 9 TX

On that census his wife was the widow of William Richard "Dick" Moore - Louella Jones.

John M Rogers died about 1908 because Louella Jones-Moore-Rogers married William Abner Allbright in 1909.

More mysteries.

I think I got the birth date of Louella from someone's data of 30 Mar 1856 (could I have transposed the 5 and 6?)
The inscription on the Hagan Cemetery graveston for Louella has a ??? for birth and 1964 for death!!! Was she over 100 years old?
her age on census show:

1900 = 34 (birth abt 1866)
1910 = 44 (birth abt 1866)
1920 = 55 Birth abt 1865)
1930 = 65 (birth abt 1865)

Thanks for any assistance in clearing these matters up

This is no help on John's first wife but in regards to the children. Lena May Rogers & Roscoe Rogers are the children of his brother, Henry. Roscoe's full name is Roscoe Conklin Rogers, my grandfather. At his time I'm not quite sure how they ended up with John.

Tanks for the information. I just checked your online tree and now have information on John Roger's parents. Louella "Lou" Francis Jones wa first married to William Richard "Dick" Moore (1860-1896), and after John M Rogers died she married William Abner Allbright (1854-1930).

Hi Doug, I'm also no help at the moment on the first wife of John (though I'm looking.)

I gave this info to James some time back, but realized that you might want it as well - Lou(ella) Francis Jones Moore Rogers Allbright was born 21 Sep 1864 in Alabama, and died 11 Mar 1939. This is per her death certificate. The marker at Hagan Cemetery was raised by my grandparents, William Frank Clark (grandson of William Allbright, Lou's last husband) and Eula Jones Clark (granddaughter of Lou by her daughter Nannie Ann Moore Jones). Apparently the engraver "had difficulties" with the order, and the dates have never been corrected on the marker.

I am not related and to complicate things two of John M Rogers children married other Rogers, whom I believe to be their 1st cousins.

John's brothers were Elijah H, Henry C, William, George and Alfred sons of Caleb W Rodgers/Rogers and Perlina A Brown the daughters were Minerva, Matilda and Mary all born in Marshall Co ? AL.

Caleb and Paulina Rogers are buried Stranger Cemetery in Limestone County he died in 1875 and she in 1877.

Unable to find 1st marriage of John M Rogers to " N S " born TX abt 1852.

Nettie Alice Rogers Rogers died in Shamrock TX in 1973 her death record says mother was Nancy Ann "Mewtor" perhaps Mentor or Minter ? She married Wm Wirt Rogers son of Elijah H Rogers and Susan Griffith. Elijah appears to be brother of John M and Henry C Rogers.

I believe John Walter Rogers married Henry and Frances's daughter Lena May Rogers.

Regarding Bertha Neoma Rogers: I have also been unable to locate where she is buried, nor have I found a death record. I know that Ben and Charles Albert (her son) are both buried at Ivie Cemetery (Kennard, Houston Co., TX).

If anyone has any info please forward that to me.

Found Lou Allbright's death certificate on, Texas Deaths, 1890-1976. She is listed as Mary Allbright, birthdate is 30 Nov 1876. Father's name is Wm Jones, mother is Annie Childress; death date is 16 May 1964, buried in Hagan Cemetery.

Nope, that one is not Lou Allbright's death certificate. Mary Allbright was her niece, and she was married to Alva Allbright; William (Larkin) Jones was Lou's brother.

Lou Jone's death certificate (listed as Mrs. Lou Albright) give DOB 21 Sept 1864 and DOD as 16 Mar 1939; she is also buried at Hagan Cemetery, near her last husband, William Abner (W.A.) Allbright who died in 1930.

Alva Allbright, mentioned above, was a grandson of William Abner Allbright.
