Pictures in the John Rogers' Family Bible
Click on any picture to see it super large.
There are 12 pictures in this post.
These two young men look suspiciously like the men in the front row of the "3 workmen & Dandy" picture. Note how tall & long limbed the man on the right is.
I suspect this picture of "3 workmen & Dandy" was taken by a newspaper or someone other than a studio photographer. See how the plain backdrop isn't big enough to get in all of them. Also note the objects revealed on the right by the inadequate backdrop.
This was not in the Bible, but was a framed wedding tintype.
Compare the groom to the bearded man upper left in the picture of "3 workmen & Dandy."
-Such long nose bridges & heavy brow ridges! Are they the same man?
The woman seated with the book on her lap is Sarah Clowes, wife to John Rogers. It seems she wore that harsh hairstyle for all her life. I have many pictures with her in this style. Perhaps the woman standing is her mother, Nancy Anne McKeen.
