I have been searching for a conneciton between Anthony Rogers and his wife
Isabelle Snoddy to John Snoddy & wife Margaret Walker. This will gives John
Snoddy as brother-in-law to an Adam Rogers, so perhaps this Adam Rogers died
and Anthony Rogers then married Isabelle (Snoddy?Rogers?) A son of Anthony
Rogers was born 1777(8) in Hawfields, Orange Co NC. Anthony later moved to
Lincoln, Green, & Madison Co's KY, close by to John Snoddy.
This may help to connect John Snoddy to Samuel Snoddy of NC.

These are believed to be the children of Anthony Rogers and
Isabelle Snoddy, some proven some not. The Mary Rogers below, could be the
daughter of Adam Rogers and Isabelle Snoddy.
