What I know of Isabella Rogers. She was a sister of my great-great grandmother - Emeline White. Their parents' names were Saul White & Mahala White from the Spartanburg, SC region. I think they moved to Atlanta right after the civil war. The story is they disowned my great-great grandmother because she married a U.S. soldier stationed at Ft. McPherson in Atlanta. His name was Alfred Kocher. They either didn't like him because he was foreign or they considered him a yankee because he was in the U. S. military. He was killed in a work accident and she raised her children by sewing. When her parent's died they sent her only $1 which was required by law. I have hit a brick wall in trying to find where Mahala & Saul White are buried or anything further back in the family line.
