Eli was my great grandfather. I have photos and know where the graves are. I went to the Spencer, WV geneology fair in 2008. I meet our cousins. One of them has his cival war dog tag.

I am not sure where Benjamine was born but Agnes wa born in Stafford Co, E. Virgina 11/6/1821.
They were married in Washington Co, Ohio.
My grandmother (Eli's youngest daughter) said Benjamine's mother was a Tuchahoe Indian. (may be part of the Cherokee tribe)We need a male to prove that by a blood test.
I ran into dead ends about him prior to their marriage.

Eli met Lucy when he was wounded during the war. He had taken his brother's place in the war and was 15 when he joined the Union Army.
My grandmother left diaries with the family information.
Look at my site at My Hertitage dot com.
I tried to put most of the information there. I moved to CT after my grandmother died and ironically moved about a mile from where her mother was born. Most of the Rogers and Spencer families are from New England so I have had access to a lot of records.
We are also part of "The Spencer" family family...we are the poor distant cousins of kings and queens.
What child are you decended from?

here is a bit of info for you

ROGERS, Eli-sev. wound. in side at battle of Winchester, VA 20 JUL 1864 & in 1927 liv. on farm near Spencer
from

The Battle of Opequon, more commonly known as the Third Battle of Winchester, was fought in Winchester, Virginia, on September 19, 1864, during the Valley Campaigns of 1864 in the American Civil War.

As Confederate Lt. Gen. Jubal A. Early raided the B&O Railroad at Martinsburg, Union Maj. Gen. Philip H. Sheridan advanced toward Winchester along the Berryville Pike with the VI Corps and XIX Corps, crossing Opequon Creek. The Union advance was delayed long enough for Early to concentrate his forces to meet the main assault, which continued for several hours. Casualties were very heavy. The Confederate line was gradually driven back toward the town. Mid-afternoon, the VIII Corps and the cavalry turned the Confederate left flank. Early ordered a general retreat. Because of its size, intensity, serious casualties among the general officers on both sides, and its result, many historians consider this the most important conflict of the Shenandoah Valley.[4]

I apologize for the delay in responding. I am on the road to Akron (my hometown) for a family get together, and then to West Virginia, including Spencer. I will respond to your wonderful postings one at a time.

Eli Rogers was likely wounded at the Battle of Rutherford?s Farm (July 20, 1864) just outside of Winchester, Virginia, where the WV 9th Infantry participated under the command of Major Benjamin M. Skinner and ultimately General William Averell. The 2007 book, Shenandoah Summer: The 1864 Valley Campaign, by Scott C. Patcham (University of Nebraska Press) has a chapter devoted to this battle.

I hope to make contact with Terry Cummings, who is the Commander of Capt. John White Spencer Camp No. 9 of Spencer of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War
[Terrence Cummings, 2833 Egypt Ridge Road, Spencer WV 25276]. I have tried to reach Mr. Cummings unsuccessfully. He wrote an amazing article in 2002 about Capt. Spencer in the local Spencer newspaper:

http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1035&dat=20020418&id=LFEMAAAAIBAJ&sjid=z2MDAAAAIBAJ&pg=6375,258369

I am wondering if anyone knows how I might reach Mr. Cummings?

Thanks so much, Tom Vetter

My Rogers/Spencer lineage is the following:

John W. Spencer + Permelia Andrews --> Lucy Spencer + Eli Rogers --> John W. Rogers + Carey Cain --> Verlie Rogers + Merle Reece --> Peggy Reece + Wayne Vetter --> Thomas Vetter

I am not sure how to access your archived information on myheritage.com, but I will try to create a tree and see if it ties into yours.

I have delved pretty far back on the Spencer line through the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the early 1630?s and from there back to England. I am not sure that lineage to Edward III is accurate.

Eli Rogers was my great-great grandfather, so we are clearly directly related. I would have loved to take part in that 2008 get together in Roane County. Which cousin has Eli?s dog tags? I am getting his and John W. Spencer?s military pension records from the National Archives, so I can make application to the Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War. Ironically, I have relatives on my Reece side of the family (Putnam and Cabell County) that fought for the CSA Virginia forces.

I would love to read those diaries. Is there any way you can scan them and send them to me? I also would love to review all that you have posted on myheritage.com! Best, Tom Vetter
