Thank you so much for the quick response. My confusion (and hope actually) is that there is something to the date "1798" listed below as a birth for another Robert Wooding Rodgers. I found the reference in Ancestry somewhere and tried to email the author(s) but all email bounced. You will see what I mean:
1. Title: The Nathaniel Kerr Rodgers "Yard Sale Papers"
Author: Frances Genevieve Rodgers
Note: In 1999, Dianne Nalesnik (firstname.lastname@example.org
) obtained some old papers relating to Nathaniel Kerr Rodgers and wife Elizabeth Champ, resident of Texas Co., MO. at a yard sale. They had been prepared many years ago by a descendant, Frances Genevieve Rodgers, in support of her applications to hereditary societies, the Daughters of the War of 1812 and the United Daughters of the Confederacy. The first application was based on Nathaniel's service and the second on that of his son, Robert Wooding Rodgers, b. 1798. It is very clear that this is the family of Elizabeth Rodgers, mother of Sarah Henry Rodgers, b. 1839, Cooper Co., MO. I obtained the information in the papers from the present holder, Clarke Rodgers, email@example.com
, May 10, 1999.
