Alexander and wife Lucy were 2nd cousins.
The Springs Valley Herald (May 9, 1929) reported "Alexander Rogers, son of Hugh and Mary Rogers, was born in Orange County, Indiana, July 22, 1873. God called him to his reward April 22, 1929 at the age of 56 years and 9 months. All of his life was spent as a farmer in the immediate community of his birth where he is widely known amoung his many friends. He was married to Lucy J. Lane January 16, 1896. To this home five children were born, three daughters and two sons, namely, Marie M. Beaty, Zoe Kearby, Geneva R. Clay of French Lick, Guy E. of Indianapolis and Hugh T. of Los Angeles, California. For several months he had been in failing health and a few weeks ago went to his son Hugh in California thinking the change of climate would be helpful to him. This proved to be of no value and at dawn, on Monday morning April 22, he passed away in a Los Angeles hospital. He was converted at an early age and was baptized in the faith of the Church of Christ at South Liberty where he was a faithful member. He served as deacon for many, many years and was never absent but very few times the past years and then only when sick or called away from home to help someone in trouble. The community has lost a good citizen. The weather was never too bad nor the distance too far, for him to go and administer to the sick and the suffering. A good man is gone. The home, community and church will miss him. We cannot know or understand God's plans but our faith gives us insight in the future and confidence to believe that this kind and loving father and husband who has made his home here one of paradise for his loved ones, has gone to prepare for them an eternal home where moth and rust cannot corrupt. As he loved and adored his grandchildren he now stands waiting with outstretched arms to receive all who follow in grandfather's footsteps. He leaves to mourn his departure four sisters, one brother, a devoted wife, two sons, three daughters, two son-in-laws, three granddaughters, a grandson and a host of relatives and friends. His mother, father, one brother and two sisters preceded him to the city Beautiful."
