Looking for ROGERS, descendants of the famous Will Rogers

Journal by LBRogers

Trying to find a connection between my father, Larry Bert Rogers, and the famous Will Rogers, actor/author/comedian.

Seeking information on James Rogers, born 1819, in Georgia or Alabama and possibly later moved to California. He is the great-uncle of the famous Will Rogers.

Siblings and information on Robert (great-great-great-great-grandfather of the famous Will), William (3 greats), and Robert J. (great-great) would also be helpful.

Here's what I've got so far, only including surviving male siblings and children:
