    In Brookfield, N. Y., Nov. 11, 1891, at the home of his son, Dr. A. C. Rogers, Clark T., son of Benj. F. and Susan Truman Rogers, aged 74 years, 2 months and 28 days.
    Bro. Rogers was born in North Stonington, Conn., Aug 18, 1817, was married to Jennet, daughter of Ethan and Sally Rogers, at Preston, N. Y., Oct. 19, 1836. In 1841 he made this place (Preston) his home.
    In early years he became thoroughly interested in the temperance movement, when it was more popular than it is now; and, when many feared to take a firm stand against the evil of intemperance, he came out and joined himself to the societies opposed to the rum traffic.
    In 1842 he was baptized and united with the Seventh-day Baptist Church at Preston. Besides caring for his farm, he had been engaged for twenty years in purchasing fish for Fulton Market, New York City, besides holding other places of trust, which gave him a large circle of friends.
    He had been in feeble health for nearly two years and came with his family to spend a second winter with his children in Brookfield. He had premonitions of the end and did not expect to return to his home. He failed very rapidly for a few days, entering into rest on the morning of the 11th inst. His wife, two daughters, Selina E. Rogers, Mrs. Evaline Langworthy, and son, Albert C. Rogers, of Los Angeles, survive him.
    Funeral services were held at the church Nov. 12th. Interment at Brookfield. C. A. B.
