Ben M. Angel notes:

This is the extent to which the Sears family has proven ancestry along this branch of the family. There is no proven connection with the family of Thomas Rogers, and attempts to prove there is a connection (suggesting an interesting but again undocumented connection with Abigail Rogers) have been the source of a considerable amount of misinformation related to the Rogers family.

I'm happy to apply an Master Profile to this ancestor, but until primary documentation is provided that accounts for the chronology established by the Thomas Rogers Society, earlier ancestral connections into the Rogers/Richmond family will be severed.
