Nicknamed "Jack" or "Johnny", he was the younger son of Sarah Jane (Moore) and Henry Rogers. His older brother was William Robert Rogers (1856-1937) who lived at Douglass, Texas. Their father, John A. "Henry" Rogers, died in about 1859 and Sarah married Richmond Bennett and had several more children.

Johnny married Sarah Belle Davis Rogers on 11 August 1889 at Nacogdoches, Texas. They had the following children:

William "Will" Rogers [no information], Della May (Rogers) McAdams, Allen Richard "Babe" Rogers, Roy Vernon Rogers, Sarah Ann "Annie" (Rogers) Ashworth.

Note regarding birthdate for John: Bennett Cemetery Association has transcribed his birthdate as 23 Feb 1858 as that is what is shown on his headstone; however, the Bennett family Bible shows his birthdate to be 17 Feb 1858.
