This is my first time at this site and I have a lot of brick walls. But Joseph Rodgers or Rogers as I've sometimes found was part Cherokee, and a medicine man who lived out his later years in Warren Co. NC. He was born abt 1866 (don't know where), died in 1952 in NC. He told his grandchildren (my mother)that he killed someone someplace else, and was smuggled to NC. I don't know if true, but my mother said he was always making medicine and seemed very mean to her.(I would have loved to meet him). Anyway I've found several names on the Dawes Roll that could be him but was hoping if anyone had access to it to see if it had more info. I'm trying to determine which one is my Rodgers, and who were his parents. Can anyone help me?
