Heenan J. Rogers was born in McGregor, Iowa,
on September 9, 1861, being the son of Jabez S. and
Sarah (Reeves) Rogers, natives of Ohio and Wis-
consin, respectively, and now deceased. They both
came from old American families and the father served
in the Twenty-first Iowa Infantry for three years and
three months. Our subject was reared and educated
in his native place and when fifteen went to work in
a shingle mill. He went to contracting in this busi-
ness later and remained until 1884, when he went to
South Chippewa, Wisconsin, and opened a barber
shop. His skill had been gained in shaving the mill
men and from the first he did well in the shop. On
December 23, 1885, he arrived in Minneapolis and worked in a barber shop for two years. Then he took
a position with the Minnesota harvester works and
later operated as trainman on the Chicago & Milwau-
kee. In 1890 we see him in his art in Butte, Montana,
and on January 12, 1891, he landed in Wallace. He
wrought at his trade for two years and in 1893 he
bought an interest in the O. K. shop, which he and his
partner are now conducting in a successful manner.
Mr. Rogers has one brother and two sisters, Charles
F., Edith M. Ford, Eva M. Dressel.

On August 15, 1885, at Hudson, Wisconsin, Mr,
Rogers married Miss Sarah J. King, whose parents
dwell in Mauston, Wisconsin. Mrs. Rogers has three
brothers and three sisters, Peter J.. William, Patrick,
Mary Galagher, Eliza and Martha. Two children
have been born to Mr. and Airs. Rogers, James F.
and Verna R. Mr. Rogers is a member of the B.
P. O. E., and the K. O. T. M. He is an active Repub-
lican and wields a good influence in the campaigns.
