The Rev. Richard G Miller, Jr.

The 1910 Census show James and Lillian Rodgers and their five children living in London Grove, which would have been the Chatam mentioned above. The Rodgers had been married 15 years, which would put their marriage year as 1895. Harry is their eldest at 24 years. William is 20. Frank is 14. Daughter May is 12. Daughter Ruth is 10. Ralph is eight. Norwood is just three. They also had two boarders - widower Walter Finnefrock and his three year old daughter Margaret - living with them. James and son William were butchers in James' own shop at home.

J. Norwood Rodgers was the son on James and Lillian Rodgers. The 1920 Census lists 12 year old Norwood living with his parents and two brothers - Ralph W. & J. Clarence - on Virginia Avenue in Coatesville.

James and Lillian Rodgers appear on the 1930 Census with 19 year old son Clarence in Coatesville. Norwood would be 33 and is evidently on his own. Norwood is more elusive.
