"The information on John is very confusing. Some make him the Immigrant Rogers Ancestor. Some move him into Mass. and have him on military duty. It is probably doubtful that John ever went to Mass. because there is good evidence that he was buried in Virginia after going there (from Edinburgh) to see his son Giles."

Seen as a son of Thomas Matthew Rogers d 1608 (before Capt John was born) with no supporting evidence. Disconnected May 2014


John Rogers arrived in Weymouth, MA from England around 1637 as an immigrant.
