One Response to Early Initiates of Omicron Chapter at Virginia, 1859-1860

  1. Jody Cullen says:

    I lived in the Rogers homestead until my husband’s death. Louis Magoon Rogers was in the family cemetery. His memorial stone had an inscription by Gov Wise-he was a color bearer in the Civil War, and died in Williamsburg following his release from Chimberazo Hospital in Richmond-he died due to infection from a shot in the shoulder.
