Descendants of Roger Rosser


18. ELIZABETH7 ROSSER (JAMES GLENDENING6, JOHN5, THOMAS4, JOHN3, WILLIAM2, ROGER1) was born Abt. 1769 in Smithfield Co., Johnston City, NC, and died in Georgia. She married ALEXANDER SMITH. He was born Abt. 1765.

Notes for A
LEXANDER SMITH:
Did James (1756) have a son, James, born possibly around 1790? My James L. Martin was in Jasper Co. no later than 1821, when he married Sarah C. Smith, dau of Alexander Smith and (possibly) Elizabeth Rosser. He was supposed to have been born in South Carolina about 1790 (per 1850 census). Also, do you know where John Martin was before Bulloch? Or do you think he was born there?

Yes, this James Martin (b. 1756) lived in Bryan Co. GA and is thought to have died in the 1820s. I am descended from his daughter Tobitha who was born in 1793 SC. I still haven't been able to find out from what area of SC they migrated.

According to the will of his widow Mary (d. 1841) he had a son John, but we don't know anything about him. Other in-laws were the Stricklands, Futchs, Haymans, Bealls, Baxters.
