Thomas ROGERS, brother of my gt-grandfather, was born in
Lancashire, 1845 & died in Deerfield, Portage Co,1917. The informant
of his death was Rose NOTMAN [daughter?]. His MI in Deerfield
Cemetery gives merely his name and dates, but mentions his wife,
Alice ROGERS 1850 - 1940. I believe that this family emigrated to
the USA c1880, but I've not been able to trace them in any census
and have no knowledge of their descendants. If somebody would give
me a reference number from the death indexes, 1940, I shall be able
to send for Alice ROGERS' death certificate. Many thanksfrom New
Zealand for any assistance.
