OLD PIONEER PASSES AWAY

Boliver Amos Rogers, a resident of Ipswich for forty-four years and one of the oldest men of the city, died on Tuesday afternoon at 5:30 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. H. D. Doolittle, at the age of eighty-six years, ten months and twenty days.

Funeral services are to be held at the Doolittle house at 2:30 Thursday afternoon with Rev. H. T. Owen officiating. Burial will be in the Ipswich cemetery.

B. A. Rogers was born August 22, 1840, in Ohio. He was married to Emma Jane Fish November 6, 1862. He moved to Osage, Iowa in 1872 and later in 1883 came to South Dakota, where he has lived ever since.

He was a member of the Christian Church and also a Mason.

He leaves one daughter, Mrs. H. D. Doolittle, with whom he has made his home the past two years and two sons, O. A. and E. M. Rogers of Los Angeles, California

Mr. Rogers was a man of most sterling honesty, a kind neighbor and a friend to all who were entitled to friendship. In his passing, Edmunds County loses one of its early founders who left his imprint and whose name will be associated with its progress from the earliest settlement
