She came to America in 1888 and on June 18th of that year was united in marriage to Jacob Rogus at Chicago, Ill. In the year 1895 she returned with her husband to Poland, where they resided until 1913 when they again came to this country and settled on a farm in the Township of Reseburg. This became her home and where she and her husband reared a family of nine children. A sons and one daughter preceded her in death. She had been a resident of this village for the past ten years and was a devoted member of St. Hedwig’s Catholic Parish and of the Ladies Holy Rosary Society.

Just a year ago Mr. and Mrs. Rogus had the pleasure of celebrating their fiftieth wedding anniversary.

I LOCATED THE OBITS FOR MY GRANDPARENTS JACOB (1943)/SOPHIA(1939) ROGUS IN THE THORP COURIER. UNFORTUNATELY NEITHER OBIT LISTS MY DECEASED FATHER'S NAME (STANISLAW-STANLEY) WHO IS THEIR SON WHO DIED IN 1935, AS WELL AS THEIR DECEASED DAUGHTER LEOKADJA. CAN AN ADJUSTMENT BE MADE? THANKS LEONARD ROGUS
