Ann Patton Rogers
by Barbara T. Claiborne
Mary Ann Patton, wife of Hugh Riah Rogers, daughter of Dorn Patton
and Sarah Spaulding Ryan. She was born about 1824 in Fayette County
Alabama. Her husband Hugh Riah Rogers is buried just over the
Tishomingo line in Allen Cemetery. She went to Hill County, Texas
with the Beachum family, so she isn't buried with Hugh. Her burial
place has not been located. There are deeds from Iuka where they
sold out and went to Texas in the late 1880's. Dorn Rogers left
first, then lastly the Beachums.
I found her grave in Hillsboro, Hill County Texas. She died shortly
after being taken there by her daughters and sons... all went to
Hill County Texas and are buried there, except daughter Mattie
Rogers Tynes who stayed in Tishomingo County where her husband old
Hugh Rogers is buried. My dad said it caused a big stink in the
family, and his grandma Mattie Rogers Tynes never forgave them.
