This name is listed on a "monument erected AD 1888, in memory of those members of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who died in 1846, 1847, and 1848, during their exodus to seek a home beyond the Rocky Mountains."
History - Noah Rogers was president of the Society Islands Mission from 1844 to 1845. He was baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ is Latter-day Saints in February, 1837, and was from that time until the day of his death an active member of the Church.
Noah and his wife, Eda Hollister, had joined the Church in 1837, at which time he had given up his practice as a physician, or country doctor, so he could devote all his time to furthering the gospel.
In company with his brother Chandler Rogers, and Silas Smith, he started for Far West, Mo., and at the conference held in Nauvoo, Ill., in April, he was called on a mission to Vermont with Addison Pratt, Knowlton Hanks and Benjamin Franklin Grouard. In a council meeting held May 11, 1843, in Nauvoo, he was called to fill a mission to the Pacific Isles, and was set apart on May 23, 1843, for that mission.
He remained one year on the Islands and returned to Nauvoo Dec. 29, 1845, in time to join the Saints in their exodus from Illinois. With the Rogers family again reunited, they moved on to Mount Pisgah (now Talmadge) Iowa, a gathering place of the Saints. Here Noah began making preparations for the trek westward, but he fell ill with pneumonia and died - only five months after returning from his mission.
