NOTE THIS LORENZO IS EXACTLY THE CORRECT AGE TO BE OUR COUSIN LORENZO ROGERS!;
1880 us census seneca co OH has a Lorenzo Rogers aged 61 born OH father b. VT
mother born MA --so I compiled this Lorenzo as son of Lorenzo born 1804 VT;
NOTE THAT FORSYTHE USES, in compiling the son, LORENZO JR BORN CA 1826-27 FROM
1870 US CENSUS OF SENECA CO. OH;
1850 us census of rutland Co. VT
there is a Lorenzo rodgers aged 50 wife Lydia 47 kids David 10 and Mary 18
all were born in VT;
1840 us census of Crawford Co PA (near Erie Co PA) is a Lorenzo Rogers who
seems to be possibly our cousin: 022001-010001 man and woman aged 40 a 5-9 nine
year old girl and 2 boys aged 5-9 and two older boys over aged 10. The
over 40-year ages seem inappropriate, but the kids could be from an approx 1825
marriage, and the geographical location is near where we suspect Lorenzo was
from in 1820s in probably Erie Co. PA. NOTHING UNDER LOR--- RODGERS IN 1840 ;

I amazed to find that Lorenzo Rogers b. 1804 was a Methodist Minister. You know
that my Grandfather, George Washington Corey, was a Methodist Minister, also.
His mother was Nancy Rogers, sister of Harry.
About Lorenzo, we have proof of his birth in Vermont in the Thetford Town
Records, The Congregational Church of Thetford Records and the Bible records.
I have his wife as Elizabeth Brown and his death as 17 Feb 1865 in Cleveland.
About the Mary Rogers, I am confused. She was daughter of Zenas and married
to James Crawford (he was brother to Polly Crawford who married Harry Rogers).
That comes from the family Bible. Could that Mary be another generation?
About Zenas' death and burial, I had already searched for records in the
Village, Town and County. I was told that there were no records that early. I
know that Hannah, Zenas' wife, had two brothers in the Chatauqua County at the
time. I wonder if Zenas was buried on one of their farms. They were Jacob and
John Annis. I haven't found and cemetery records published in their vacinity.
There was a Zenas Rogers buried in Oak Hill Cemetery at North East, but he was
a generation or two later than our Zenas. Also the stone for Hannah in the
Crawford plot in the Oak Hill Cemetery has sunk some. It reads "Hannah, wife
of Zenas Rogers" and below ground level is "wife of Asa Hall" ;
