The early life of Rev. Charles w. Rogers is very obscure. Having been born into a wealthy family and becoming a Minister, I am going to assume he was well educated. He married Caroline M. R_?., a native of Connecticut. To them four children were born; Anna, Carrie, Georgia and Charles U. Rogers. Indications are that Anna was the oldest of the four children, named for her grandmother. Already married at the time of her father's death, she was also first child mentioned in her father's will. Anna married Dr. Joseph West. Daughter Carrie married Samuel Stiles of Savannah. Two months after the death of her father Georgia Georgia married Peyton L. Wade of Screven County July 16, 1861. Georgia was later widowed and in 1865, she married Fraser Ho Grant Jr., a local bookkeeper. Charles w. Rogers, son of Rev. Charles W. Rogers died in 1863, at the age of 18, two years after the death of his father.
