1826 There were several documents for the estate inventory of Isaac Rogers, of Nottingham/Chesterfield township, dated 14 to 28 of August, with signatures of John Rogers and Ezekiel Rogers. [50] Thomas Billanger and John Taylor (perhaps the brother of Ann Taylor) made the appraisal of his estate, which included notes of John Cubberly and S Dancey, and which was approved by Ezekiel Rogers and Stacy Decow, administrators (records filed both in Burlington County and Middlesex County). [51] [List, 1826 Isaac Rogers estate inventory.][52]

1826 The real estate of Isaac Rogers was divided on December 13, 1826. [53][54][55]:

In pursuance of a decree of the Orphans Court for the County of Middlesex made in the term of September last past, appointing us the subscribers commissioners for dividing the real estate late of Isaac Rogers dece'd situate in the County of Middlesex, between Ann Lutes late Ann Rogers, Ezekiel Rogers, John Rogers, Isaac Rogers, Mary Schooley late Mary Rogers, Rachel Groom late Rachel Rogers, Achsa Cubberly late Achsa Rogers, Sara Clark late Sarah Rogers, children of the said Isaac Rogers deceased, and Daniel Rogers, Phebe Rogers, Susanna Rogers, and Martha Rogers children of Daniel Rogers a deceased son of the said Isaac Rogers deceased. And Abraham Wall, Elizabeth Wall, Isaac Wall, Ann Wall, Jacob Wall, and Sarah Rogers late Sarah Wall children of Edith Wall late Edith Rogers a deceased daughter of the said Isaac Robers deceased, his heirs at law and tenants in common, a part of whom are minors under the age of twenty one years ... We have hereunto set our hands this thirteenth day of December A.D. 1826..

1826 Ezekiel Rogers, Stacy Decow, Thomas Ballanger, and John Taylor posted bond on 28 August, 1826 for the inventory of the goods of Isaac Rogers of Burlington County. [56]

1828 The account for Isaac Rogers, made by administrators Ezekiel Rogers and Stacy Decow, was disputed by Robert Lutes. The accounts were to be audited by Joshua Wright, David Scherick, and John B Abbott. They were to meet at a house in Nottingham. [57][58][59]

1829 Ezekiel Rogers, administrator for Isaac Rogers gave an account to the Burlington County Orphans' Court at the May term, 1829. On 26 August, 1826, the estate had assets $692.62. Payments were made to Thomas Ballanger for appraising at Mount Holly. Payments were made to John Taylor, Mary Schooley, Benjamin Schooley (administrator of James Schooley for boarding of the deceased), Joseph Schooley, Peter Ellis (for coffin), Isaac Rogers, John Rogers, Thomas Atkinson Tavern, and Samuel Hamilton for professional services. Last payment made 12 January, 1829. [60][61] The account for Isaac Rogers, made by administrators Ezekiel Rogers and Stacy Decow, was disputed by Robert Lutes, of Middlesex County, regarding sale of property. [62]

1847 The inheritance of Achsah Rogers Cubberley was described in the partition for John Cubberley Sr, deceased. Applicants ... John Cubberley Jr, had died, as had Ezekiel Cubberley, leaving heirs Ann Elizabeth Cubberley, Edward Cubberley, Margaret Cubberley, and Enoch Cubberley, all being minors under the age of 21. Premises had formerly been occupied by John Cubberley Sr, deceased, as a tenant by courtesy, being the share that had been allotted to Acsah (Rogers) Cubberley, former wife of John Cubberley Sr, out of the division of her father, Isaac Rogers, deceased. It adjoined Randall Robbins, Joseph Ayres, Robert Lutes, deceased, William Tinsdale, et al. Thirty acres. Order to partition dated December 10, 1847. [63]

Research Notes:

1815 Benjamin Schooley and Ann Kirkbride Ivins were married at the Chesterfield Meeting of Friends on May 4. Witnessed by Ann Rogers and others. [64]

The ancestry shown here for this Isaac Rogers has been disputed. We show John Rogers (born 1686/87) and Martha Clayton (born 1695), of Chesterfield Twp, as parents. A few researchers have named John Rogers and Sarah Stokes, of Chester Twp, as parents, but they lived in a different part of Burlington County and their son Isaac had only one daughter Elizabeth at the time of his death. There are records, overlapping in time, for these two Isaac Rogers's in two townships of Burlington County: Nottingham/Chesterfield, in the north (also Windsor Twp, Middlesex County), and Chester Twp, in the south. These appear to be different persons. The notes above are for Isaac Rogers of Chesterfield/Windsor.

The relationship to Samuel Rogers, who died 1807 in Chesterfield Twp, Burlington County, with nephew Benjamin Rogers, if any, is unknown to us. [65][Josiah Granville Leach. Genealogical and biographical memorials of the Reading, Howell, Yerkes, Watts, Latham, and Elkins Families (1898),58]

Estate accounts were made for another man named Isaac Rogers, as documented below. We suspect that the account made by Ezekiel Rogers, in the notes above, was for Isaac Rogers, married to Ann Taylor. We do not know who the estate, below, is for.

1826-28 The account of the estate of Isaac Rogers, deceased (perhaps not this one), was prepared by John Rogers and Aaron Robbins, administrators, for the Burlington County Orphans' Court, February term. They posted bond as administrators on 24 August 1826. The first payment was dated 24 August, 1826. Payments were made to Batter Atkinson (tavern expenses), Peter Ellis (grave digging), Mary Parker for nursing, Joseph Cook for medical attendance, and Thomas Tallman for professional services. The accounts were closed on February 11, 1828. [66]

1762 Ezekiel Rogers was born to Isaac Rogers, although no prior marriage record has been found.

Descendants of Isaac Rogers and Ann Taylor were named in a Sons of the American Revolution application. [67]

Several DNA matches have been found wih descendants of this couple. However, there are no shared matches among these descendants, nor do they match with other Schooley descendants through daughter Mary Rogers, spouse of James Schooley. Perhaps the DNA matches are not through this couple.
