Col. Samuel Rogers was born in Wendall, N.H., Nov. 13, 1766 and died in Concord, Lake Co., Ohio, Sept. 9, 1850. He was in the Revolutionary War for New Hampshire in the company of Capt. Samuel Richards, regiment of Col. Stark, for which he received a pension. He was married twice, first to Sally Pike, afterward to Rhoda Harvey.

He was also in the War of 1812, in which he received a Lieutenant's commission, but was always known as Col. Rogers, probably receiving that title from the militia.

He held the office of Justice of the Peace in New Hampshire, coming to Ohio in 1831, and is buried in Concord cemetery, near Fay's mills.
