    In Alfred, N. Y., May 27, 1916, Mrs. Benjamin F. Rogers, in the sixty-third year of her age.
    Arletta Elvira Greene, the daughter of Russell W. and Olive A. Greene, was born in Berlin, N. Y. She grew up in Berlin, teaching school a while in early life. August 19, 1889, she was united in marriage to the Rev. B. F. Rogers, who was then pastor of the Seventh Day Baptist Church of Berlin. In 1891, after Mr. Rogers had served the church at Berlin faithfully for sixteen years, he accepted the pastorate of the Seventh Day Baptist Church of Scott, N. Y., and they moved to that place; here they remained nine years, Mrs. Rogers performing faithfully the duties falling to her as wife of the pastor. Sixteen years ago, Mr. Rogers, being about threescore and ten, retired from active duties of the ministry and they removed to Alfred, N. Y. Mr. Rogers death occurred May 27, 1913, three years to a day prior to the death of Mrs. Rogers. In early life she was baptized and joined the Seventh Day Baptist of Berlin; when they moved to Scott her membership was transferred to the church of like faith in that place; and upon coming to Alfred she became a member of the First Seventh Day Baptist Church of Alfred. She was deeply interested in the work of the church and denomination, and proved the sincerity of her professions of interest by her works and the gift of her property. Mrs. Rogers leaves an aged mother and many relatives and friends. Funeral services, conducted by pastor William L. Burdick, were held in Alfred, May 31, and her mortal body was taken to Berlin, the home of her childhood and youth, for burial. Elder Rogers' remains were removed from Alfred to Berlin and buried with Mrs. Rogers, June 2. Wm. L. B.
