(1) was born on 4 May 1677 in Dorchester, Suffolk,
MA. She died on 19 Jan 1770 in Little Compton, Newport, Rhode Island. Parents:
John Rogers and Elizabeth Pabodie
Stanley Rogers(2) was born in 1874. Parents: William Clayton Rogers and Huldah M. Baker.
William Rogers(2) was born on 19 Feb 1805 in Ardleigh, Essex England. He was educated between 1816 and 1818 in "Free Boys on the Foundation", Dedham Grammer School, Dedham, Essex. He died on 8 Oct 1880 in Cleveland OH. He was buried in Woodland Cemetary, Woodland Ave. & 71st St.: Sec. 21, Lot 42.. He was christened in At Great Meeting Friar St. Independent Chapel, Sudbury, Suffolk Cty.. The wooden model ships on the mantle at Madeline Island are supposedly from wood of one of the ships Admiral Nelson sailed on. John Wilson was a Captain in the Royal Navy, supposedly serving under Admiral Nelson. His service was so outstanding that he was offered a knighthood but declined the honor since he had no male heirs to inherit the title, only 3 (4?) daughters. (More information on John Wilson can be found in the notes under his name).
After the defeat of Napoleon in 1815, peace prevailed. However, in England poor harvests and a decline in exports produced poverty and unemployment. In 1825, the first of the cyclical crisis and depressioms occurred which upset commerce and industry every 9 years or so throughout the 19th century. In the summer of 1830, the last of the agrarian risings: laborers in the sothern and eastern districts had grievances due to low wages, winter unemployment and the introduction of thrashing machines. Rioting and burning but no killings. Nine were hanged, 450 were transported to Australia and 400 imprisoned. In the early 1830s, laws wre passed to allow some male householders to vote as well as leaseholders; parliamentary reforms slowly gave wider representation in the House of Commons.
In the obituary of his son, William Clayton Rogers, in 1911, it mentions that William Sr. was a pioneer of Cleveland and laid out and donated Clinton Park to Cleveland.
Much of the following information was obtained at the Historical Soceity Library, Case-Western Reserve University, Cleveland OH.
The 1850 census reports them in Cuyago County: William as a 40 year-old farmer and Harriet 11 years younger; Montague (12) and Frederick (12) as well as Wm. Clayton (10), Emily (5), Clarence (2), all born in England, a 2 month-old female born in Ohio and Thomas (20) born in England are also mentioned. The age is probably wrong for Harriet just as it is for William.
The 1857-58 City Directory lists Harriet as a dressmsker living near Main & Elm on the west side of Cleveland.
The 1860 census lists William as a gardener in Newburgh Township owning $1000 in real estate and $300 other property. Harriet is now listed as 5 years younger than William which puts her birth year closer to 1810 than 1815. Interestingly, Montague and Frederick are listed in both their parents' household on July 9, 1860 and also in Rachael Rogers' (40) household, in the 2nd Ward (southeast of downtown), on July 20, 1860; with Rachael are Robert (20), Isaac (18), Wm (15), and John (13) all born in Ohio just as Rachael was. The twins' occupation is listed as sewing machine operators...this, of course, foretells their moving to Hamilton, Ontario, to start the Rogers Brothers Sewing Machine Company about 1861.
The 1862 City Directory lists William as a landscape gardener at Hemlock Park, Cedar Avenue, and Harriet as a teacher living on Cedar Ave.
The Directories for 1863-1875 listed various Wm Rogers with a variety of occupations such as brewer, carpenter, brakeman and clerk, but I couln't find any other familiar names at their addresses. In 1871-72, a Mrs. Harriet Rogers is listed as a boarder at 10 Union but no one else familiar.
The 1880 Directory shows Wm at 2348 Brecksvill Rd/ which is the address given on his death certificate, but he is not in the 1880 census...at least the two Wm H. Rogers do not seem to be nor is a Harriet in the census.
The 1882 through 1887 directories have Mrs. H.M. Rogers at 2217 Broadway and the 1889-90 lists Mrs. Harriet M. Rogers, widow of William, residing at 1162 Giddings with no other Rogers mentioned. No mention of her in the 1890-91 directory. However, a necrology file stated Harriet M. Rogers died Jan. 29, 1891 at age 80 o 81 at Chattanoga TN and was buried there from her daughter's residence. A copy of a death record from Hamilton Cty. (Chattanoga) shows Hannah M. Rogers, age 78, born in London, died on 1/29/91 of bronchitis and is buried in Forest Hills Cemetary in Chattanoga. Parents: Isaac Rogers and Dorcas Phillips.
