in GEDCOM file chis.ged

(S29) Talahina Rogers came with her sister, Mrs. Ignatius Chisholm, from East Tennessee to Fort Gibson and there we find them when Sam Houston arrived in April 1829. There were really three Rogers sisters, Martha(I048) , wife of Ignatius Chisholm(I002) , Talahina (Tiana) and Susanna. It seems they all attended Dwight School.

Sam Houston had been elected Governor of Tennessee in 1827, at the age of thirty-four. He was Governor in 1829, and made a brilliant marriage on January 22, 1829, to Eliza Allen, who belonged to one of the leading families of Tennessee. Something occurred that wrecked this marriage and on April 16, 1829, Sam Houston resigned the office of Governor of Tennessee and wended his way to the west to the Cherokees, landing at Fort Gibson. At Nashville he took a small steamboat, Red Rover, that followed down the Cumberland River into the Ohio, then the Mississippi, then on to the west. While in Indian Territory he went into business, became a trader and in a short time he met Talahina Rogers, a sister of Jesse Chisholm's [step] mother(I048) . Sam Houston knew Talahina Rogers in East Tennessee when she was only ten years old. Her father was Charles Rogers, and her mother was Jennie Dew. Talahina's older sister married Ignatius Chisholm, as has already been mentioned, and they emigrated to the west and settled in Arkansas. Talahina was a modest, half-breed Indian of very high type of character. Sam Houston married her according to the Indian custom and took her to his home, "Wigwam Neosho," near Fort Gibson.

By marriage to Talahina Rogers, he became the uncle of Jesse Chisholm(I001) , and Jesse Chisholm had the right by law to call him "Uncle Sam." Sam Houston sought forgetfulness in the activities of the life of the west. When he reached the land of the Cherokees in the Indian Territory, he found the Rogers family and Jesse Chisholm near Cantonment Gibson. Jesse Chisholm, Talahina Rogers' nephew, who was half Scotch and half Cherokee, had settled near Fort Gibson, and here, in the summer of 1829, Jesse Chisholm and Sam Houston met after nearly twenty years of separation.
