  • Notes 

    • Lafayette Rogers was born about 1826 according to census records. The parents of Lafayette Rogers are currently not known.

Joseph Rogers is listed on the same page of the census as James and Nancy Knox, the parents of Lafayette’s second wife Sarah E. Knox. Further, both Joseph Rogers and Lafayette Rogers had a daughter named Narcissa. Thus, it is possible that Lafayette named his daughter after his sister.
