ROGERS 11 October 1997

I am researching the ROGERS family. Josiah Hill ROGERS was born 1744/45 in Bertie County, North Carolina, died 1813 in Chatham County, North Carolina. He was the son of John ROGERS. Married to a Frances (?) about 1770. Frances died in Corinth Orange, VT. They only had one child as far as I know, his name was Levi ROGERS. Josiah and Frances had a large family I think, but have no information on this. Would appreciate any and all information on this family. Thanks in advance.
