The founder of our family, Samuel Rodgers, was born on June 29, 1792, near the town of Milford in Donegal County, Ireland.It is reported that his father took part in the famous seige of Derry Castle at the time of the fierce wars between the Catholics and Protestants. Samuel, in the late summer of 1794(?), sailed to America, landing in Delaware about the 30th of October. He married Mary Henry, in the autumn of 1798. They lived in PA and then moved to Ohio. William Rodgers was born Sept. 25, 1823 in Donegal Ireland and married Mary L Pettit . They had 7 children including a son Joseph Camden Rodgers(our great grandfather.) We are trying to obtain more information on the ancestors and descendents of Samuel Rodgers. We do have some additional information on Samuel but have not yet connected him to William Rodgers.
