Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)
Elizabeth's father was Wing Rogers, from Mansfield, Massachusetts. He settled in Danby, Vermont, about 1770. He is noted as being a birthright Quaker, a resolute pioneer of the area, a man of many eccentricities, and one of the wealthiest men of the region. He is inextricably tied to the early history of Danby. He was married four times (Deliverance Chapman, Mercy Hatch, Rebecca Sherman, and Hannah Titus. He moved to Ferrisburg, Vermont in 1800 where he died "well advanced in years." [book-history-and-map-of-danby-vermont-1869]
Wing may have been born 14 Jun 1740, Marshfield [rather than Manfield?], Plymouth County, Province of Massachusetts Bay, British America. He is also likely the Wing Rogers listed in the 1790 U.S. Census for Danby, Rutland County, Vermont, on page 243, column 1, line 11. This page also holds entries for Elizabeth's husband Nathan Smith and his father Caleb Smith. Unfortunately, the census does not include the names of anyone other than the head-of-household.
Elizabeth's mother may have been Mercy Hatch (b. 23 May 1746) and she may have married Wing in 1766 at Marshfield, Plymouth County, Province of Massachusetts Bay, British America).
Elizabeth may have been born in Massachusetts, or maybe Connecticut, and married Nathan about 1785.
One of Elizabeth's daughters may have married Benjamin Boyce. [story-by-the-old-mill-stream]
Elizabeth may have died 29 Dec 1817.
