"LUKE ROGERS, son of NATHANIEL S. and RACHAEL (CAIN) ROGERS, is a native of Hampshire County, Virginia, born November 28, 1830, and is the eldest in a family of sixteen children. The father of MR. ROGERS was a native of Loudoun County, Virginia, and was one of three men to begin the first settlement in Princeton Township, coming here in 1844, removing, however, from Virginia to Big Creek Township, this county, in 1837. LUKE ROGERS remained at home and worked for his father until he was twenty-five years of age. He was married, February 22, 1855, to MISS HARRIET A. DOBBINS, daughter of JOHN and CATHERINE DOBBINS. To MR. and MRS. ROGERS were born five children, viz.: JAMES P., JOHN N., SARAH E., WILLIAM and JOSIE. WILLIAM died April 15, 1861. MR. ROGERS enlisted June, 1861, in Company K, Twentieth Indiana Volunteer Infantry, and was honorably discharged at Indianapolis July 29, 1864. He was in the seven days' battle before Richmond, second battle of Bull Run, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, where he was wounded in the right hand by an accidental discharge from his own gun. MR. ROGERS was elected Township Trustee in April, 1880, and was re-elected in 1882, having no opposition at the last election. He was formerly a Republican, but now is a stanch Greenbacker; he is a member of the Christian Church and of the Grand Army of the Republic. MRS. ROGERS died March 4, 1881."
