Secretary of Standard Fire Insurance Company Victim of Typhoid Pneumonia
Typhoid pneumonia cause the death yesterday of Irwin W. Rogers, secretary of the Standard Fire Insurance Company at this home, 824 West State Street. He was stricken four weeks ago.

Mr. Rogers was in the 48th year of his age, having been born December 10, 1863 at Edgewood, Bucks County, PA. He was the son of the late Levi H. Rogers. His mother is Mrs. Jane Rogers who resides on Jackson Street, this city. Mr. Rogers attended the schools at Edgewood and later became a student at the old Steward-Rider Business College.

At the conclusion of his business education Mr. Rogers affiliated himself with Samuel Bailey, an insurance broker of this city, with whom he acquired a knowledge of the business and after a time branched out for himself representing the German, Buffalo and American Insurance Companies in addition to a number of others. His greatest success, however, was as secretary of the Standard Fire Insurance Company, whose main office is situated on West State Street.

Mr. Rogers was a member of Trenton Lodge No. 5, F. & A. M.; the National Union and other bodies. For ten years he was associated with the I.O.O.F., but later severed his connection with the organization. In politics Mr. Rogers was a Democrat. For a number of years he and his family resided on Bellevue Avenue, near Prospect Street, and later lived on West State Street, near Overbrook Avenue. Some time ago he erected a handsome residence, which is situated at 824 West State Street. While a resident of the Thirteenth Ward Mr. Rogers, at the insistence of his friends, was twice a candidate on the Democratic ticket for Councilman.

A widow, who, before her marriage, was Miss Mary Tallman, also of Bucks County; three sons, Dr. Lawrence H. Rogers of Paterson, Norman and Irvin W. Jr. and one daughter, Miss Helen M., all of this city, survive. His mother, Mrs. Jane Rogers and a sister Miss Ella Rogers and a brother, Dr. Benjamin Rogers of Paterson also survive. The later Dr. Elmer Rogers of this city was another brother.

The funeral will be held Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock from his late residence. Interment will be in Riverview Cemetery, under direction of Irvins & Taylor.
