Abolitionist, Journalist and Lawyer. Nathaniel Peabody Rogers was born in Plymouth, New Hampshire June 3rd, 1794. He was the son of John Rogers, M.D. and Betsy (Mullikan) Rogers. He married Mary Porter Farrand in 1832. They had 8 children. A law graduate of Dartmouth College, Rogers practiced law in Plymouth for roughly twenty years before moving to Concord in 1838 to edit the Herald of Freedom, an abolitionist newspaper. Many of his editorials were reprinted by the New York Tribune under the pen name The Old Man of the Mountain. From 1840-1841, he was also an editor for the National Antislavery Standard. In 1840, Rogers was a State of New Hampshire delegate to the World's Anti-Slavery Convention in London, England. He withdrew from the convention in protest after American women delegates were denied seats. Rogers was a widely-known speaker on the issues of abolition, temperance and women's rights.
