James F. Rogers (Frank Rogers) was born in Indiana. Married Elizabeth Hines in Vigo County. James’ death was survived by wife Elizabeth, two sons Adelbert (Delbert) Clifton Rogers (Woodridge Park – sales manager for the Terre Haute Gas Corporation) and Oscar Frank Rogers (of Waukegan, Illinois) and four brothers Charles, Harry, Earl, and Jack. Much is unknown about Lizzie Hines. Her parents may have been George and Sarah Clark. She died 10/09/1953. Survived by same two sons. Adelbert (Delbert) Clifton Rogers was born 07/26/1906 and died 04/1973. He married Thelma Orilla (Myrick) Rogers and adopted only son Robert James Rogers (Bobby) (My father). Oscar Frank Rogers was born about 1904 in Indiana, and married Awilda (?).

James F. Rogers (Frank Rogers) was son of James O. Rogers of New Goshen, Vigo, Indiana. He was born in Kentucky. He married Evana (Lenderman) Rogers. She was born about 1850 in Indiana. Her mother and father were born in North Carolina. Evana died 10/3/1937 in Terre Haute. Survived by six sons: Charles, Orlie, J.F. Rogers of Terre Haute. Earl of Youngstown, Indiana, Jack of Chicago, and Harry of Detroit. A brother: Daniel Linderman. Four sisters: Ms. Laura, Ella, and Sadie Linderman, and Mrs. Lou Funkhouser, all of New Goshen.

My father remembers James F. Rogers telling stories about his father and the mini-ball hole in his chin. James F. Rogers said that he wore a bright red beard to cover the hole.

I have many old photographs of James F. Rogers and unknown people. They are very old, and some are on metal. We believe that the unknown people are actually the rest of the James O. Rogers Family. I would love to verify and trade photos with someone. One of the photos is labeled as grandma Linderman, who would be the grandmother of James F. Rogers because James O. Rogers married Evana Linderman.

My father interviewed an aunt before she died. I have more information, but I would like to verify it before posting it on the internet.
