An excerpt from "Past and Present of Randolph County, Indiana":

Aaron G. Rogers was a farmer, and the father of six children, five boys and one girl. He was a native of Virginia, and died in Missouri at the age of eighty-six years. Besides his farming activities he preached in the methodist Episcopal church. His military record is interesting and notable. In 1794, when General "Mad Anthony" Wayne, the hero of Stony Point, New York, was sent into Ohio to quell the hostile Indian tribes there, Aaron Rogers was a soldier in the small army of rangers and riflemen. he braved the hardships along with the rest of that courageous company, and wielded his flintlock as effectively as any. Again, 1812, he saw hard service under command of William henry Harrison, after "Old Hickory" had made his name famous at Tippecanoe. The campaign against hostile Indians was practically ended for an interval by the defeat of the Shawnees at the above mentioned place, and consequently Aaron Rogers' service was, for the most part, directed against the British, who were then in the process of being "licked" the second time.
