  • Notes 

    • Margaret Ann Mayhew was the wife of Robert L. Rogers. Although no marriage record has been found, evidence for the marriage is found in the death certificate of Lacy Rogers, daughter of Robert Rogers and Margaret Ann Mayhew. North Carolina Death Certificate No. 25741.

      Margaret appears in the 1880 census with her husband Robert Rogers. See, notes for Robert Rogers. She was 18 years old. Based on the 1880 census, the birth date for Margaret Mayhew is about 1862.

      A Margaret C. Mayhew (36) is listed in the 1870 census in Davidson, Iredell Co., NC. Her household includes Thomas (16), William (14), Franklin (12), Laura (10), Margaret (8) and Florida (4). 1870 U.S. Census, Iredell Co., North Carolina, Roll M593_1144, p. 85B. The younger Margaret may be the wife of Robert Lee.

      William Mayhew (70) is listed as head of household in the 1860 census in Iredell Co. His household includes John Mayhew (30), Margaret Mayhew (24), Mary Mayhew (9), Thomas Mayhew (7), Billy Mayhew (5), Frank Mayhew (3) and Laura Mayhew (3m). 1860 U.S. Census, Iredell Co., North Carolina, Roll M653_902, p. 143. John and Margaret Mayhew may be the father of Margaret Mayhew who married Robert Lee. If so, William Mayhew would be the likely grandfather.

      Note that the William Mayhew in the 1860 census does not appear in the 1870 census. A William Mayhew died and left a will in Iredell Co. in 1870. Iredell Co. Will Book 4, p. 73.

      Also note that a John Mayhew died in Iredell Co. in 1838 and left a will. Iredell Co. Will Book 2, p. 185. The children of John (d. 1838) include William, Presley, Matilda, Eveline, Mahala, George, John and Janes.

      William Mayhew (d. 1870) also had daughters named Matilda and Avaline. See, 1850 U.S. Census, Iredell Co., Roll M432_633, p. 103A. The naming pattern strongly suggests that William Mayhew (d. 1870) is the son of John (d. 1838).


      Phyllis Harrison, great-granddaughter of Robert Rogers and Margaret Mayhew, states that, according to family tradition, Margaret Mayhew died instantly at a young age when she was kicked in the chest by a horse. Robert Rogers was apparently remarried by 1910, suggesting that Margaret Mayhew died between 1900 and 1910.
