Lucy and husband Alexander were 2nd cousins.
The Springs Valley Herald (December 26, 1940) reported "Mrs. Lucy Rogers, 62, widow of Alexander Rogers, passed away Tuesday evening at 8:30 o'clock at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Gallie Clay, after a cerebral hemorrhage which struck her around noon that day. Mrs. Rogers, daughter of Thomas and Rachel Lane, spent her entire life in the French Lick vicinity and was well known. She was a member of the Christian Church and while health permitted was an active worker in the church. Funeral services will be held by Rev. C. W. Parks at the Christian Church Sunday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock, followed by a short service and burial at South Liberty. She is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Marie Barber of Indianapolis, Mrs. Roscoe Kearby and Mrs. Gallie Clay of French Lick; and two sons, Hugh and Guy Rogers of California. The Springs Valley Herald (January 2, 1941) reported "In Jackson Township, Orange County on May 24, 1878 the first of nine children was born to Thomas and Rachel Hobson lane and they named her Lucy Jane. Her early life was spent at her birthplace and as the years flew eight other children were born into their home. On January 16, 1896 she was married to Alexander Rogers and they moved to their new home and five children came to bless it. After the death of the mother-in-law, she and her family moved in to take care of her father-in-law and this she did until his death. Her husband's health took them to California only to stay one short month before he passed away on April 22, 1929. Since that time she has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Geneva Clay in French Lick. On December 24, 1940 she was taken suddenly ill and lasted only a few hours, slipping peacefully into Eternity at 8:25 on Christmas Eve. She said it was her time to go and all was well for she was ready for the beautiful transition; one that we all should work at a lifetime that it might be a beautiful climax; one with confidence; that our life here will be the only memorial necessary to mark our passing. Words seem so meaningless when trying to decide a rich, full life so nobly lived. she was ever busy with the comforts of her family. The beautiful handwork created by her skillful and ever busy hands is symbolic of the loftiness of her character. Since early girlhood days she has been a devoted member of her church, first South Liberty and since coming to French Lick she has made the First Christian Church her home, where she was ever ready and anxious to do all in her power for the betterment of God's cause and relieve the suffering of God's children. The years are fleeting and a brief history of one's life so soon written on paper, but the influence of a life so nobly lived as this one will last throughout eternity. The world has been a better place because she lived and worked and loved and now is at peace. Her children, Mrs. Marie Barber of Indianapolis. Mrs. Zoe Kearby and Mrs. Geneva Clay of French Lick, Hugh of Azusa, California and Guy of Verdugo City, California, have so many precious memories to be cherished. In later life she has had grandchildren upon whom she lavished her love and devotion and found it was returned to her full measure and pressed down. One great grandchild, Donna Sue Cox, three sisters, Mrs. Maude Beatty, Mrs. Cloe Anna Beatty, Mrs. Pearl Briner, two brothers, Sampson and Noble Lane are left here. Her father, mother, Ruth, Grace and William have gone on before."
