NELSON ROGERS. – Born on a farm in Vermont in 1841, and early apprenticed to the trade of chair-making, Mr. Rogers determined to come to this coast, and arriving in California in 1858, there engaging in placer mining, and farming for the space of eight years. The discontinuance of his residence below was immediately succeeded by a removal to the Granite creek district, in Eastern Oregon, where he followed mining until 1873, when he located at Burke’s Hollow and farmed until 1882. Converting his entire property into money, he made advantageous loans until the reinvestment of his capital in a mercantile business at Pilot Rock, Oregon, where he is at present living.
