From Mary Cross (12 Apr 2000) on message board (http://boards.ancestry.com/surnames.rogers/1099.1112/mb.ashx) cites Richard Pagburn's Indian Blood: Finding Your Native American Ancestor, Vol 1 (Louisvills:Burler Books, 1993) when she writes:
"When Gen. George Rogers Clark attacked the Shawnee town of Piqua (Pickaway) in Aug of 1870, there were members of his family living among them. A nephew Joseph Rogers ran out of the village,, was shot by mistake. 'Silverheels' was among those Shawnees who fled Piqua. He reported to the British that Rogers was missing. Also Henry Rogers (a Shawnee), who had been adopted by Blackfish, but was living in another village. Henry Rogers' halfbreed children included Lewis Rogers, William Rogers, Polly Rogers, Graham Rogers."
Henry married Chelatha Blackfish, daughter of Chief Black Fish and Watmeme. (Chelatha Blackfish was born about 1761.)
