Lucretia Treadwell married William Thomas Rogers about 1783 in Sampson County, North Carolina. She died 01 August 1844 in Quitman, Brooks County, Georgia. She was the daughter of Major John Treadwell, Revolutionary Soldier, and Sarah Herring of Sampson County, North Carolina. They were married  about 1783 in Duplin, now Sampson County, North Carolina.

Information that conflicts what was recorded in this book: William Thomas Rogers was the son of Thomas (1716-1782) and Elizabeth (d. bef 782). His father came from Rhode Island with his parents, Peleg Rogers (1695 - 1768)  and Isabel Brand (d.754). He died about 1815 in New Hanover County, North Carolina. He, as well as his cousin, also named Thomas, son of Job Rogers, served in the Revolutionary Arm from North Carolina.

By 1816,Lucretia Rogers was in Bulloch County, Georgia with some of her children. She was listed as a widow in 1819 in the sale of land along the Black Creek in New Hanover County. The 1820 census shows Lucretia and her children in the household of Benjamin Devane.

n 1825, Francis Devane, Benjamin's brother, acted as attorney for Lucretia Rogers and her children James Rogers, Ann Rogers and Benjamin Devane in the sale of 585 acres of land in New Hanover Count, North Carolina. The Rogers family then came to Lowndes County (now Brooks County), Georgia in 1828, moving with the Devane family.

Lucretia Rogers is buried in the Rogers cemetery about six miles north of Quitman, Georgia (Dist. 12, lot 382) in an unmarked grave where other Rogers and Devanes are buried. The Rogers Cemetery exists where stated and is being maintained by a Devane. Stanley D. Rogers, Sr. visited he cemetery in June 1997. There were five tombstones or markers as follows.

The Rogers children intermarried with several of Brooks County's pioneer families including Devane, Folsom and Hicks.


There is a question on the maiden name of Lucretia Treadwell. Found in the library at Wilmington,
North Carolina in a folder was a flyleaf of a bible with the following handwritten words:

W. H. Rogers., Bo

A Soldier's Letter

The following letter was written to Mr. W. H. Rodgers of Brooks County, Georgia by a former Yankee soldier, and reflects the strong feeling of kindness and sympathy which in so many instances was manifested by soldiers on both sides.

                                                                                                                                Augusta, Maine

                                                                                                                                  August 1, 1866

Mr. Wm. H. Rodgers

My Dear Sir:

I will now do a duty which I have been prevented from doing before on account of a want of mail facilities.

I have been a solider in the Federal Army; was at the battle of Cedar Creek, VA on the 19th o October, 1864, just at night of this day as we were advancing over ground lately gained. I came upon a soldier in gray uniform whose intelligent and expressive countenance so attracted my attention I could not resist the temptation to stop and learn something of him. He was a sergeant in Co. "G" (I think), 26th Georgia regiment, and his name was Rodgers, but the first name I have forgotten. He was wounded in his left breast, and seemed conscious that he had but a short time to lives. He told me he had a brother (older I think) lying dead but a few rods away. He was calm, quiet, and resigned, and said he would feel no anger for those who had caused his wound, as they, like himself, felt they were doing their duty. He seemed as quiet as though sleeping, suffering no pain.  I gave him a drink of water, placed his blanket comfortably under his head, and pinned his  name, regiment, and company upon it.

In answer to my inquiry whether he wished any word sent any friend or relative, if ever opportunity offered, he said, "If ever the war is over, and you can, write my father who lives in Quitman, Georgia and tell him where I died." He then gave me your address. Reluctantly, I left him, feeling as though leaving a friend so strongly had his quiet demeanor and forgiving spirit impressed me. In those few minutes I had, I did not know whether he died or lived for I could never find the time to return to the spot, although wishing to do so, but often has my mind returned to that spot, surrounded by those scenes of duty which everywhere wet the eye in Shenandoah Valley, with the autumn sun sinking behind the mountains, and have felt at times when weary with the perplexities of life, almost envious of the quiet repose of the soldier.

It would gratify me to know if you receive this. Anything directed to Augusta, ME, care  "Maine Farmer" will reach me.

I am, dear SIr, with great respect,

Your obediant servant,
LaGrange Severance


          P. 192 Additions/Corrections
Lagrange Severance is not a family member, however, I checked and found that a man named Lagrange Severance was born in Maine in 1839/40, and married and became a physician.

LaGrange Severance was born December 28, 1839. His early education was obtained in public school and academy, which he left at the age of fourteen, and entered the office of the Bangor Daily Whig and Courier, Bangor, Me., where he remained until he arrived at the age of twenty-one. At the breaking out of the war, he unhesitatingly entered the army, as a private, in Company H, Twelfth Regiment Maine Volunteers. His regiment was assigned to Gen. B. F. Butler’s Division, and after the capture of the forts in the Gulf of Mexico, was assigned to duty at New Orleans. He was promoted to the rank of Second Lieutenant in April, 1863, and again to the responsible position of Adjutant of his Regiment, in February, 1864. He was with his regiment at the battles of Ponchatoula, Irish Bend, siege of Port Hudson, and in the campaign of the Shenandoah; under Gen. Phil Sheridan at the battles of Winchester, Fisher’s Hill and Cedar Creek; was wounded at Ponchatoula and Po!
rt Hudson; after the battle of Cedar Creek, was again promoted to the position of Acting Assistant Adjutant General of the First Brigade, Second Division, Nineteenth Army Corps, where he remained until the mustering out of the regiment in December, 1864, at the expiration of its three years’ service. Soon after the close of the war, he began the study of medicine, and graduated from the Eclectic Medical Institute, Cincinnati, Ohio, in May 1868, when he commenced the practice of medicine in South Whitley, Ind., and in October, 1869, he came to Huntington County, and has remained here ever since, enjoying the confidence and respect of all with whom he has associated. Dr. Severance is a member of the Masonic Order, having attained the rank of Knight Templar.

5H(F). GEORGE FOLSOM, born in either Duplin or Cumberland County, North Carolina about 1770 to Nathaniel Folsom and his wife. He moved with his family to Georgia between 1808 and 1810. His brothers Nathaniel and Thomas, and others connected came about the same time and all settled in Pulaski and Washington Counties.

George served in the War of 1812, in the Georgia Militia under Capt. Allen Tooke, in 1813. His detachment built forts on the frontier of Pulaski County, to protect the county against Indian depredations.

George Folsom died intestate in Pulaski County, Georgia in 1819. His homeplace was on lots 315 and 316 in the 15th District. The estate was administered by William Folsom and Mrs. Edith Folsom, the widow; they were appointed 6 September 1819, giving bond in the sum of $8000. A dowry was granted the widow on 7 March 1820.

m. EDITH PENNYWELL, in North Carolina, probably around 1795. Edith was born around 1770, according to one source in Scotland and another in North Carolina.

On her husband's death, she was administrator, along with her son-in-law William Folsom, of his estate. She was made guardian of her children, Pollie, Chloe Ann, and Ebenezer Folsom, still minors.

Sometimes between 1825 and 1830, the widow and her minor children moved to Lowndes (now Brooks) County where she died about 1845.

On 23 June 1823, she married George Brice in Pulaski Count, thus her guardianship of her minor children was revoked on 6 September 1824 by Pulaski Court of Ordinary. In those days, married women could not make or assure any contract or obligation, hence after her remarriage, the revocation of her appointment.
