Notes for Erastus Edmund Rogers:

Rock Island County Ill Portrait & Biographical Album

 

Dr. E.E. Rogers, residing at Port Byron, is one of the prominent and substantial business men of that place. He is a native of Plainfield,

 

Ohio, where he was born Nov. 14, 1829. The parents of Dr. Rodgers were John and Margaret (Williams) Rogers, natives of Mifflin County, Pa. They were among the early pioneers of Ohio, where they resided until their deaths.

 

Dr. Rogers was educated in the schools of Zanesville and Athens, his native State, and completed his education by a thorough and complete academical course. At an early age he determined to adopt the profession of medicine as the business of his life, and with that end in view he read the standard text books of medicine while yet in his minority. When he attained his majority he came to Davenport, IA., arriving there in April, 1850. He remained there until the May following, when he came to Illinois and settled at Port Byron, hung out his shingle and commenced the practice of his profession. The county at that time was thinly settled, entailing

 

upon the Doctor long and fatiguing rides to visit patients living in remote settlements; but he was possessed of a stout and vigorous brain that has never known an hour of sickness during the last 35 years. In 1855, realizing the importance of having pure drugs in his practice, he opened a drug store in connection with the practice of his profession, in which business he is still connected with his son. In 1871, Dr. Rogers began the banking business and established the bank known as the Bank of Port Byron, under the firm name of E.E. Rogers & Sons. The bank is well and favorably known throughout financial circles. It is regarded as one of the solid institutions of the county. The volume of business transacted by the bank has aggregated $1,500,000. Prior to engaging in the banking business Dr. Rogers commenced dealing in grain, shipping, etc., and the firm as it now exists was organized in 1871.

 

As seen by the foregoing, the life of Dr. Rogers has been one of business activity. He belongs to that class of Western men who are noted for their push and enterprise, good judgment and energy. It is needless to say that the energy, tact and good judgment of Dr. Rogers has brought its reward in wealth that ranks him among the substantial citizens of Rock Island County. His accumulation of this world's goods is attributable to none other than his own indomitable energy, keen judgment and energetic endeavor.

In December, 1853, Dr. Rogers was united in marriage with Miss Susan Moore, a native of Vermont, at Port Byron. The issue of their union has been two sons, - Frank E. and Edward M. Both the sons are partners in the firm of E.E. Rogers & Sons, bankers, grain dealer and druggists at Port Byron.

 

Frank E. Rogers, eldest son of the Doctor, married Miss E.A. Maxwell, and they have two children,- Walter Harry and Hazel. Edward M. Rogers, second child of the Doctor, married Miss Elizabeth McCall, and they have one child, Bertha by name.

Mrs. Rogers, wife of the subject of this notice, is a member of the Congregational Church. Socially, Doctor Rogers belongs to Port Byron Lodge, No. 624, I.O.O.F. Politically, he comes from good old Democratic stock, his first Presidential vote having been cast for Franklin Pierce in 1852, and since that time he has not failed to cast his vote in support of the principles of that party. Thus, in short, is the brief biographical sketch of Dr. Rogers, and thus we have an exemplification of what push and energy may accomplish. He started out in life with nothing but a strong determination to succeed and a healthy constitution, and by his energy and perseverance has procured a competency and a name and reputation second to none in the community in which he resides for fair and honest dealing with his fellow-man.
