In 1861 he enlisted in the 122nd regiment and served for over three years. He was to be commissioned lieutenant when he was wounded at the Battle of the Wilderness, which caused the loss of one hand. He was married to Mary A. House in 1870. To this union were born five children, three of whom died in infancy. Mrs. Nowels, of Nellie is the only child now living.
Mr. Rodgers united with the M. church at Mt. Nebo in 1872 and was a faithful andactive [sic] member until sickness prevented. He leaves a wife, one daughter, one brother, one sister and three grand children. Mr. Rodgers was a man of strong body, strong mind and a strong faith in Christ as his savior. He had confidence in his fellow men and believed that right would finally triumph. The funeral sermon was preached by his pastor, Rev. H. S. Willis, and his remains were laid to rest in Warsaw's beautiful new cemetery.
