Joseph Rodgers was born abt 1810-11 in NC. He married an lady named Elizabeth and the census reports her as being from SC. They came to Ala where they had Dorah Angelina abt July 1844.
I found them in 1860 Hardin County TX with Dorah living at home. In 1870, Dorah is with her husband, William Stephen Cross and is missing from the family.
