heart in which dwelt no evil or unkind thoug-hts and desires.
Harsh words never passed his lips. Gentle and unassum-
ing, he was a beloA^ed physician and friend.

In his home life he showed the most considerate and
affectionate solicitude for his family. His wife embodied
all the graces of attractive womanhood. Charming in
appearance and manner, she was universally admired. Full
of animated dignity and gracious courtesy, she entertained
in the most hospitable way, giving her guests the freedom
of her home, losing no opportunity to add to their comfort
or pleasure, esteeming no means oi contributing to their
pleasure a sacrifice. She and her husband lived in the
enjoyment of unselfish endeavors to bestow kindness and
affection on their family and friends. Her soft voice and
sweet accent of speech were indicative of her gentleness and
amiable disposition. She survived her husband seven
years. In 1870 he virtually retired from the practice of
his profession, and in 1875 a slight paralysis was the

beginning- of a progressive disease which resulted in his

XVII. William Rodgers* (Jennet Quigley Rodgers*,
Robert Quigley-, James Quigley^) was bom December 29,
1809 in Hopewell township, Cumberland Co., Penna., be-
tween Quigley's Bridge and Newburg, died January 19,
1894 at Springfield, Ohio; married April 13, 1841 Sarah
Harrison, daughter of General John Harrison and Frances
Harrison of Pennsylvania, and sister of Effie Harrison, the
wife of Dr. Robert Rodgers.

Not far from the Conodog^inet Creek, bounded on the
north by the Kittatinny mountains, was the Rodgers home-
stead, where William was born and spent the first twenty
years of his life. The peaceful quiet of the country was
not alluring to the active brain and body of the young man.
"Far from the maddening crowds ignoble strife," he did not
find the energetic thrift and enterprise for which he hunger-
ed. With the prospect of greater advantages and a wider
field in the business world, and with the encouraging ac-
count of prosperity in the west, which his brother Robert
gave after the year he spent along the river at Ports-
mouth, Ohio, he decided, with his sister and brothers to
leave the old home in Pennsylvania. The remainder of his
life of eighty five years he passed in Springfield. His love
for the scenes of his boyhood was genuine and beautiful,
and though separated by distance and ever changing events,
he remembered the friends and haunts of his youth. His
warm hearted manner and cordial greeting were as much a
part of his personality, as his true gentlemanliness of life
and speech.

In Springfield was a vigorous throng of men, actively
engaged in laying the foundation of a city, giving their
strength and energy to make it what it has proved to be —
commercially, morally and artistically — one of the finest
and most attractive business and residence cities in the
United States, its beauty and industrial zeal largely due to
the determination and cooperation of the early pioneer set-
tlers. Good, reliable, intelligent men they were, with no
false pride of place or station, with practical views and per-
sistent effort which knew no retreat.

To this eager, ambitious multitude William Rodgers
joined his keen perception of facts, clear judgment, thor-
ough discrimination and estimate of trade and enterprise.



268

He was interested in rural life and owned a farm. To the
Dry Goods business he gave his attention and was success-
ful in its pursuit, though for a number of years prior to
his death he was not actively engaged in mercantile trans-
actions.

He was strictly honorable in all business affairs, strong
in defense of the right, upheld the good in humanity and
denounced evil in all things. His name, and kind, thoughtful
manner are remembered by many friends who received from
his hand the most gracious consideration. He was a con-
sistent member of the Second Presbyterian Church, and one
of her charter members. In her doctrines he was rigid,
and in his views thoroughl}^ Calvanistic. He was true to
her standards, and he was a power for good in the church
and community. His life was long and useful.

His business career brought him in contact v/ith people
who had the most profound respect for him and esteemed
him above his fellow men. Upright, and conscientious in
the discharge of his duties, he sought to benefit those about
him, and they learned to depend upon him and his wise
decisions, and loved him for his true manliness and worth.

His wife, who was born in Lebanon Co., Penna., was
attractive in manner, with a bright, happ}?- disposition. Her
loveliness of person and character were ideal. She was a
wife in whose companionship her husband found every wish
gratified, and in whose society her friends lingered with
delight. She was full of lively, gladsome thoughts and im-
parted the warmth and brightness of her nature to those
around her, making her home a place of real comfort and
cheer. Her gentle courtesy made her always approachable,
and her strength of character challenged respect and
admiration,

XVIII. Rev. James Linn Rodgers* (Jane Linn Rodg-
ers^, Robert Quigley^, James Quigley^) son of James Rodg-
ers and Jane Linn Rodgers, was born May 5, 1827 near
Shippensburg, Cumberland Co., Penna., died January 21,
1895 ^t Springfield, Ohio, and is buried in the Fern Cliff
cemetery beside his wife, Hettie Burd Cochran, who was
born September 20, 1829 in Shippensburg, married May 20,
1850, died January 21, 1887, daughter of Robert Cochran
and Eliza Linn Cochran of Shippensburg.



i 26&

James Linn Rodgers was graduated from Jefferson Col-
lege in 1847, ti'om Princeton Theological Seminary in 1850,
licensed June 12, 1849 by the Presbytery of Carlisle, ordain-
ed May 2, 185 1 by the Presbytery of Donegal to preach to
the Presbyterian congregations of Donegal and Mount Joy,
Penna., which charges he held from 1852 to^ 1856.
From 1856 to 1857 he \vas stated supply at Sterling, 111. In
May 1857 he moved to Springfield, Ohio and together with
Rev. Charles Sturdevant took charge of the Female Semi-
nary, of which he was its Principal. In 1857 he became sole
proprietor and continued so until 1871. During his con-
nection with the Seminary he preached at various places in
Ohio, and after severing his ties with the institution in 1871,
he was pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Yellow Springs,
Green Co., Ohio, ten miles from Springfield, which was his
last regular charge. He resigned about 1881, but preached
as the opportunity offered until the day of his death. He
filled the pulpit of the First Presbyterian church in Spring-
field on the last Sabbath of his life. A few days later he
was stricken with heart failure and died suddenly. His
service and faithfulness to his church was long and useful.
He was eminently fitted for the duties of his ministerial
calling, and was beloved by his people. He was strong in
the doctrines of his church and maintained her ordinances
during the years in which he taught her truths. His conse-
crated life bore testimony to the beauty of his religion.
Although claimed by the Middle Spring Church as one of
her sons and baptized by the Rev. John Moody D. D.. his
pastorates were far removed from the scenes and home of his
childhood, yet he cherished the memory of places and things
pertaining to the old landmarks in the Cumberland Valley
where his forefathers lived and died. He was patriotic and
rejoiced in the welfare of his country and growing prosper-
ity of its institutions.

tion and ability to inspire confidence and affection.
