"Anthony Rogers
b. 14 April 1768, d. after 1845
Anthony Rogers was born on 14 April 1768 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.1 He was the son of Anthony Rogers and Zilpah Holcombe. Anthony Rogers was baptized on 23 July 1769.1 He married Lydia Ledden on 13 November 1797.2 Anthony Rogers died after 1845.2

Anthony held many parish offices during his lifetime, including those of pound keeper, hogreeve, clerk of the market, and surveyor of lumber, which show that he was both a farmer and lumberman. He was also a hunter, as Arthur Nicholson stated in 1790, and his name was often found among those of Indian hunters in the area. He would seem to have lived in closer contact with the local Indians than almost any other settler. He spoke the Micmac language and was the only non-Indian to be engaged as a Micmac interpreter by the Court of Quarter Sessions. He also acted as interpreter at a meeting held in 1832 between Richard McLaughlan and the members of the Indian band at Red Bank. 2

Nancy Rogers is included in the following list for circumstantial reasons alone. Edward and Robert are identified as sons in land documents. There are Anglican baptism records for Anthony, Elizabeth, and Matilda. There were undoubtedly other children, possibly including Mary Rogers. 2
