An excerpt from "Past and Present of Randolph County, Indiana":
Dr. Aaron G. Rogers, one of the most prominent physicians of Randplph County, is descended from a family which played its part well in the shaping of the first United States; a family which has literally been in the vortex of human events and activities; and which has been represented in nearly every place where human passions have clashed, or civil and moral questions have been settled in "the court of blood". In the dubious years at the close of the eighteenth century there were Rogers who performed their duty heroically and faithfully; in 1812, in the '60's, and in the intervening years when smaller strifes and Indian wars troubled the land, the Rogers family have won their spurs in every sense of the word. Dr. Rogers has not had the opportunity for military glory, but in a profession that requires the stamina and nerve of the battlefield he has been a commander; his work has been characterized by that conscientious devotion to duty, that disregard for self in the interest of others, which mark one as a man among men. It is for such men as Dr. Rogers that biograpy is intended, and so it is highly appropriate that he should be given conspicuous mention, for it is to such as he that future generations point to in extolling the generations and years of the past.
Aaron G. Rogers was born in Henry County, Indiana, on August 18, 1849, and was the son of Thornton and Eliza (Luellen) Rogers.
In religious matters, Dr. Rogers attends the Friends Church. His mother-in-law was a preacher in this denomination. Fraternally, he is a member of the Free and Accepted Masons, the Knights of Pythias, and the Independent Order of Odd fellows. Politically, he is a Republican, and takes a great interest in the affairs of the party. At one time Dr. Rogers served well as a member of the county board of charity.
