Birth: Oct., 1853
Beallsville
Washington County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: 1934
Chambersburg
Franklin County
Pennsylvania, USA

Photographer Albert L. Rogers owned studios in Chambersburg and Carlisle, Pa., and in Hagerstown and Baltimore, Md.

He was born in Beallsville, Pa. to carpenter James Robinet Rogers and Sarah McLean Rogers. His elder brother, Samuel G. Rogers (1841-1935), had studios in Waynesburg, Greene County, Jackson, Indiana, and Bowling Green, Kentucky. Albert lived with Samuel and his family in Waynesburg; Albert learned his craft from his brother.

Three other brothers also became photographers:, John H. Rogers, was also a successful photographer in Brownsville, Luzerne County, Pa.; Thomas Wilson Rogers had a studio in Cumberland, Greene Co., Pa.; their youngest, half-brother, Jessie Addison Rogers, had a studio for a time in Greensburg, Indiana.

Before moving to Chambersburg with his first wife, fellow photographer Elizabeth E. Jonas, Rogers owned a studio in Baltimore. Examples of his cabinet card photographs from Baltimore and Pennsylvania can still be found.

After his first wife died, Rogers became an orchardist. He remarried to a much younger woman, a Canadian immigrant named Louise McCann. They had two daughters, Marie and Helen.

Thanks to Jim Houpt and the Franklin County, Pennsylvania Genweb for the locations of the Rogers' graves.
