ROGERS, J. A. (1846 ~ 1929). Confederate veteran James Rogers was born in Missouri in 1846.

According to pension records, he served in the "Reserve Corps" during the Civil War and was discharged at Bastrop, Texas. It is uncertain where the "Reserve Corps" was stationed or what its function may have been. Some records indicate that a Texas Reserve Corps was attached to the Department of the Gulf and its members served as prison guards. It was only in existence for six months until the War ended.

Rogers married Amanda Gathrie in 1875. The couple had eight children named Asa Rogers, Jerry B. Rogers, William Rogers, Mrs. Inez Gold, Mrs. Edwin Quinn, Mrs. Vida Chriswell, Mrs. Mollie Epps, and Robert Rogers.

Rogers and his wife entered the Confederate Men's Home together at an uncertain time. He died on November 30, 1929 and was buried at the Texas State Cemetery.
