I just wanted to thank you for the info you have made available in regards to the Rogers family. Col. Matthew Roger's wife (Anna Morse) is my 5th gr-grandmother's (Mary Morse Kinney) sister. Judge Timothy Morse is my 6th gr-grandfather...this whole line of ancestors has been a very interesting one!
What you are working on is awesome!

Rogers information
Hi again - for those interested in more information on Col. Rogers, there was an article published in Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society, entitled: "Three R's in Lincoln s Education: Rogers, Riggin and Rankin" by James T. Hickey.

It was Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society (1908-1984), Vol. 52, No. 1, Lincoln Sesquicentennial (Spring, 1959), pp. 195-207, Published by: Illinois State Historical Society.

Let me know if you have trouble locating the article.
