Mrs. H.W. Rogers Dead

It is with sincere sorrow and regret that we are called upon this week to record the death, at 8 o'clock Wednesday evening, April 10th, 1912, of Mrs. Nancy Francis, beloved wife of Mr. H.W. Rogers, of Bee Branch, and sister of Mrs. W.H. Maddox, of Clinton, and S.H. Bradley of Culpepper. Mrs. Rogers had been in failing health for some years and her death was not unexpected by family and friends. She was one of four children born to Jim and Liza Bradley, early citizens of this county, (Mr. Bradley being an elder brother to our fellow citizens Messrs Apt and S.H. Bradley), and both of whom died when she was but a child.

Mrs. Rogers was about fifty years of age and was married to Mr. Rogers some twenty-four or five years since. As a result of their union six children were born, the youngest now being six years of age, and all of whom survive her. She was a true and noble Christian woman, a member of the Christian church for many years, and died in the faith she professed. Funeral services were conducted Thursday afternoon by Rev. Loftis, following which interment took place at the cemetery at Bee Branch, many sorrowing friends and relatives being in attendance. To the bereaved we join with a host of friends here and elsewhere in extending our most profound sympathy.
