"All of these as well as Mrs. Patrick Rogers (nee Cassilly) of Cincinnati, long since dead, and I believe the mother of Mr. James Rogers, 8th and Chestnut in our city, were cousins of Michael Phillip's and your grandfather, but of Michael Phillip's more immediate family, and of course of a degree nearer in relationship to him."

Burial: 05 May 1859, Calvary Catholic Cemetery, Cincinnati, Ohio
Notes for JAMES ROGERS:
No will on file at Hamilton Co. courthouse.
Cemetery records at Calvary Cemetery for the large plot purchased by Emma Lawson Rogers on Oct. 20, 1871 indicate that the "Rogers, Familie was reinterred 10/31/1871 from St. John's (chuch or cem??), interment #310.
Could not find an indexed obit for James and do not know if he died in Cinti. I think the "Familie" includes James, Alice and Emma's husband Patrick.
Checked the St. John's cemetery records 2/20/98 and found neither James nor Alice listed as interred there before their removal to Calvary. Also did a little checking in the Gazette "River" columns for a notice of this passing. Will have to read those columns as they are full of news and librarian in special collections suggests they were gossip as much as news.

Child of ALICE CASSILLY and JAMES ROGERS is:
i. PATRICK3 ROGERS.
Notes for PATRICK ROGERS:
In 1857. Mr. (Theodore) Cook purchased the interest of Capt. Davis, uniting with the firm of Barker & Hart, the house then becoming Barker, Hart & Cook, and it prospered amazingly. The war broke out in 1861, and this made business for steamboats and for all connected with them. The trade in which Mr. Cook was engaged naturally brought him in close touch with the steamboat business, and he, with others, such as Thomas Sherlock, Patrick Rogers, and the Gaffs, became large owners of steamboat property, having a heavy interest in the United States Mail Line which plied between Cincinnati and Louisville.
