Daniel ROGERS (RODGERS), early settler of Shelburne, NH (Later Gorham)

Journal by YankeeRoots

If anyone has any information about this Daniel Rodgers, I would be very grateful. He received a land grant dating from 1770 (recorded 1771) in the town of Shelburne (now called Gorham) NH , making him one of the town's founders. Other grantees are the eminent Mark Hunking Wentworth, as well as Daniel Pierce, John Rindge, Isaac Rindge, and Jotham Rindge. Daniel Rodger/Rogers and his family are recorded as residents there in the first US census, dated 1790. Any history on this man; residence, emigration, ancestry, etc, would be greatly appreciated.

I see the name Wentworth there in your line so perhaps you are researching the same Rogers as me. Moultonborough NH and Bethel VT areas. Several Daniel's, one born in 1811 whose father Daniel was born in 1780 and married a Norris, and I think his father was a Daniel Rogers who married Patty R....which I think may be Martha Reed...maybe Martha Tucker Reed...as Patty is a nickname for Martha. To make my search more complicated, the youngest Daniel (1811) married a Plausipine Rogers whose mother was Anna Wentworth...whose first husband was John Rogers, who died young, and then Anna married John's brother's son, Samuel...who was born about 1804. I suspect that John was possibly a brother to the 1780 Daniel but can't find any proof of that yet...I think Patty R. would have to have died in the 1780's and the elder Daniel have married again as I find no John with Patty R. and Daniel. Or maybe John's brother is not Daniel. I am caught up with these Rogers and the one directly linked to my husbands line is David A. Rogers who was born about 1818. I think he married Lucy E., but there seems to possibly be another Lucy Rogers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ossipee NH and Stockbridge VT are also places for this Rogers line, and possibly Massachusetts...but perhaps everything goes back to Massachusetts
