Thomas J. Rogers1,2

d. 1841
Marriage*22 June 1811He may have been the correct husband, surname of Rogers, who married "our" Mary on 22 June 1811 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We've taken a major leap of faith to suspect that Mary's surname was "Unites" and that the Rogers she married was "Thomas J." . Mary had a son named Thomas J. Rogers, who may have been named after his father; and, although 1811 may have been early if their first child wasn't conceived until 1823, there may have been earlier children that were deceased or adults and on their own by the 1850 census.

We realize we may have jumped to totally erroneous conclusions, and welcome any and all corrections, ideas and information.1,2
Death*1841He may have been the Thomas Rogers who died in 18413
Burial*1 February 1841 and was buried on 1 February 1841 in Christ Episcopal Churchyard, Brownsville, Fayette County, Pennsylvania.3,4
