Clark County Clipper, February 16, 1928

(Clarrisa Isabel Phillips Rogers)

Clarrisa Isabel Rogers was born near Madison, Jefferson county, Indiana, June 11, 1859.  She departed this life at her home in Buffalo, Oklahoma, February 5, 1928, at the age of 68 years, 7 months, and 24 days.

At the age of 19 years she was converted and united with the Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church of Madison, Indiana and remained a member until the time of her death, it was a matter of pride to her that she and her husband were charter members of the Buffalo Methodist Episcopal Church.

She was united in marriage to Delaney G. Rogers at Taylorville, Indian, on October 16, 1884.  To this union seven children were born.  All but one are living and were present at the funeral services.  One son, Edward Taft, died in infancy in 1907.

With her husband, she came from Indiana in the early days and located on a farm in Clark county, Kansas.  Later they moved to Harper county, Oklahoma in 1889 and homesteaded northwest of Buffalo.  They resided on their farm until a few years ago when they moved to the town of Buffalo, where they have since resided.

To mourn her departure, are her husband, D. G. Rogers, three daughters and three sons, Mrs. Ora Baker, Ashland, G. M. Rogers of Enid, Mrs. Stella Baker of Protection and Mrs. Alta Blasdel, William and John Rogers of Buffalo, and ten grandchildren; also two brothers, Alonzo and Cavel Phillips, who live near the old home in Indiana, besides a host of relatives and friends.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist church at 2:30 o'clock, Monday afternoon, by Rev. P. O. Blackwell, assisted by Rev. A. M. Barker and Rev. W. J. Chapman.  Burial was made in High Point cemetery east of town.

Mrs. Rogers was of a kind and loving disposition and she was ever ready to make a sacrifice for her family and anyone in need of assistance.  While of a retiring disposition she had many friends and was loved by all.
