ELIAS ROGERS, farmer, P. O. Venango, was born December 25, 1823, in Chautauqua County, N. Y. His parents, Aretus and Elois ROGERS, left that county, and after living some years near Albion, Erie Co., Penn., finally settled in Cussewago Township, this county, in 1837. They lived the lives of upright pioneers, and died here leaving four children: Mrs. Eliza Cole, Mrs. Jane Wing, Elias, and Mrs. Mahala Hotchkiss (deceased). Our subject married Miss Catherine Siverling March 23, 1844. She is a daughter of the pioneer John Siverling, a native of Venango Township.
