Mr & Mrs. Cicero Rogers


Mr. Cicero Rogers Dead. On May 30, 1914, at his home at Bellton, Mr. Cicero Rogers answered the call to "come up higher." Great indeed is the mystery of life and death. He had been declining in health for several years, due to affected lungs and kidneys. He was well known to almost everyone of Hall and White Counties. He was born in Hall county about sixty-nine years ago. He was an old soldier of the confederacy; joined the 7th Georgia Regiment at Savannah, went out in Company D, under Capt. Anderson. After Captain Anderson was shot, he went under Capt. Wiley. Thus, one by one our dear old soldiers are receiving the summons to "cease firing." That life's battles have been fought, the last roll call on earth has been answered. It is with sad hearts that we give up such noble spirits. The deseased's watchword were always, Honesty and Truthfulness. He had been married twice and was the father of thirteen children. In 1866 he was married to Miss Sophroney Carter, sister of S.S. Carter, of Lula. To them nine children were born, eight of whom are still living; Mrs. Hester Carter, Mrs. Mattie Garner of Bellton, Mrs. E.F. Whitworth of Lula, Mr. S. B. Rogers of Gainesville, Mrs. Frank Peck, Mrs. India Jones, Mr. Scrogs Rogers of Murrayville, and Mrs. T. W. Tate of Cleveland. He was married the second time about eleven years ago to Miss Emma Patton of White county, who still survives him. To them four children were born, three of whom are still living-- Fay, age eight years, Claretta, age five years and George, age three years. Mr. Rogers was a member of the Baptist Church. The funeral services were held at Wahoo Church in Lumpkin county, conducted by Rev. James West. After the services at the Church the body was taken to the Church cemetery and placed beneath the sod to wait till the resurrection morn.

In another newspaper clipping is as follows: The many friends of Mr. Cicero Rogers regret to learn of his death, which occurred last Saturday. He had been residing in Lula for the past few weeks, but he is a former citizen of White county. He was well known in this part and had many friends. His remains were laid to rest at Wahoo cemetery last Sunday. Submitted by: Iris Thompson Fry Great Granddaughter
