THOMAS W. ROGERS, photographer, who was born in Beallsville, Washington County, Penn., July 17, 1846, is a son of James R. and Sarah (McLean) Rogers, also natives of Washington County.  Mrs. Sarah Rogers died in 1854.  Mr. Rogers, who is a carpenter and contractor, now resides in the State of Indiana.  His family consists of seven children now living—five sons and two daughters (five dead).  Thomas, who is the third son, was reared in Washington County on the farm, and attended school at Beallsville.  In 1861 he learned photography, at which he worked for over three years before he opened his establishment in Carmichaels, where he has been a very popular and successful photographer.  In 1869 Mr. Rogers married Miss Belle, daughter of Joseph Daugherty.  They are the parents of five children, viz.—Olly, Velma, Wilber, Ina and Fred.  Mr. Rogers is modest and unassuming but industrious and energetic in his business, and has always had the respect and confidence of the community, from which he has received a liberal patronage.  In politics he is a Republican; and he and Mrs. Rogers are among the most faithful and prominent members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
