ACCOUNT OF A NOTED DUEL AS TOLD 
BY V^^LLIAINI T. AUSTIN, Sr. 

Battle Island, Brazoia Co. 

Stephen F. Austin, first cousin of John Austin and 
William T. Austin, was impresario of the five Austin 
Colonies. There existed in Texas at that time a faction, 
opposing Stephen F. Austin in most of his measures, 
known as the Wharton faction. After the battle of 
Velasco and other troubles with JMexico, Stephen F. 
Austin Avent to JMexico in the interest of the Colonies 
and after arriving in Mexico, he was treacherously be- 
trayed and throw into a dungeon, where he was detained 
for eighteen months. During his absence the Wharton 
faction broke out in the most bitter denunciations against 
him and his measures. John Austin, being next in com- 
mand and kin of Stephen F. Austin, felt that it devolved 
upon him to champion Stephen F. Austin and his cause. 
The excitement raged violently throughout the colony, 
parties were formed upon the subject and scarcely a 
colonist could be found who did not take part in the 
controversy by joining one side or the other. John 
Avistin challenged the head of the Wharton faction, Wil- 
liam H. Wharton, to a duel, considered in those days 
the honorable means of settling a difficulty. Before the 
day appointed for the duel John Austin died.) Shortly 
after a banquet was given by the Whartons, where John 
Austin's death was discussed as removing the barrier to 
the Wharton supremacy and Col. John A. Wharton of- 
fered a toast to John Austin's bones burning on the 
gridiron in Hell. William Tennent Austin was so in- 
censed at the insult offered his brother's memory that 
when he was told of it he went to find Col. John 
Wharton and an altercation ensued and a challenge for 
a duel followed from Col. John Wharton., The Whartons 
being practiced duelists were confident of a successful 
termination in their favor. William T. Austin did not wish 
to shoot to kill, but only wanted to disable John Wharton, 



— 17 — 

which he did by shatteriii*? his right wrist. William Austin 
deeply deplored the iieeessity of the duel and it is evident 
that John Wharton did also, as an offieial pa|)er from 
John Wharton ap])()inting William Tennent iViistin to 
an office of honor is still in possession of the Austin 
family. 

John Austin joined Gen. Long's expedition and 
entered iNlexieo in 1821. lie was taken prisoner, hut 
was released and returned to U. S. A., through the in- 
fluence of /Poin eett jof South Carolina, Minister to Mex- 
ico, who was a college chum of John Austin. John 
Austin was a co-partner with Stephen F. Austin and 
S. M. Williams in coloni/ing Texas. While navigating 
the coast between Texas and New Orleans he was twice 
taken (prisoTier by pirates .and the second time he made 
his escape bj'^ swinnning. 

He was Alcalde of Erazonia and second Alcalde of 
San Philipe.

He enii<4Tated to Texas with his wife, Johanna Thomas, 
and child, in the month of October, 1880, and located at 
the town of Brazonia on the Brazos River. He engaged 
in the mercantile business until after the great overflow 
of the Brazos in 1833. His goods were ruined and 
damaged by the water and such of the stock as was at 
all valuable after the overflow was taken to the town of 
Washington, Texas, and disposed of. Directly after the 
overflow the cholera made its appearance. 

William Tcnnent Austin made his mark on the page 
of Texan history by saving his country in the Texan 
War for Independence. 

"He was in both expeditions to San Antonio, com- 
manded at Velasco, the then important port at the 
mouth of the Brazos, and was always on duty — held com- 
missions and served as Aide-de-camp to the Commander 
in Chief of the ^'^olunteer Army of Texas, under Edward 
Burlesen, with the rank of Colonel — under President D. 
G. Burnett as Conmiander at Velasco — under Presi- 
dent yi. B. I.amar as aide to the Commander in Chief, 
which commission recites that he was appointed because 
of his 'acknowledged character for chivalry and honor' — 
and imder President Sam Houston as Commander in 
Chief with like rank, and was in very truth: 'A soldier 
of the Republic.' 

"Like every man possessed of force of character, he 
was a firm friend, a fearful foe, yet his enmity was ever 
tempered with justice and at the first peace offering, a 
little child could lead him."

Tennent Austin, who was present as a volunteer, during

BATTLE OF GALVESTON AS TOLD BY 
HENRY GRIFFIN HARDEN. 

"The battle of Galveston was planned by General 
Tom Green and Brig. General William T. Austin. 

"We made our start from Huston, Texas. General 
Green commanded the gun boats, which consisted of 
three transports. General Austin commanded the land 
forces. I was in Col. Hardeman's division. Our land 
forces boarded a train of flat cars in Houston and pulled 
out for Virginia Point. Our engineer got up all the 
steam he could and our train fairly flew over the rails. 

"The facts regarding Wm. T. Austin's war career have 
not been put in history owing to his not being a man who 
boasted or bragged. Wm. T. Austin was the most 
agreeable commander I ever served under ; he was a gen- 
eral favorite with all the boys. I served under William 
T. Austin from April, 1836, to July 25, 1836. After- 
wards served under him at the battle of Galveston, 
1863." 

William Tennent Austin helped Pres. Burnett to es- 
cape the Mexican Army. He Avas appointed by Gov. 
Houston Brig. General of Confederate States to organ- 
ize and drill the militia of Chambers, Jefferson, Mont- 
gomery and Galveston counties in 1860 and was ap-

his classical studies being pursued and finished at a private 
school in Bucks Co. He taught school for three years, 
but gave it up for the study of law. He began the study 
of law under Joseph Fornance, finishing under .Judge 
David Krause. He was admitted to the bar on Jan. 2, 
1854, and at once began jiractice in Norristown. He soon 
became very popular and prominent. He was elected 
District Attorney of the county in 1856. His record was 
a remarkable one and stamps him as one of the strong 
men of his day. He acquired important business in- 
terests in Norristown, but in 1894 he resigned from the 
presidency of the Alberta Trust and Safe Deposit Com- 
pany, now the Penn Trust Co., of which he was first 
president, formed a law partnership with Edward E.

Daring Exploits of Chas. W. Austin, Family of One of South's Greatest Naval 
Heroes Resides in Houston. Manassas First Ironclad His Design. 

Contrary to all the teachings of history, to a Texan belongs the honor of 
having constructed and commanded the vessel that revolutionized naval war- 
fare and displaced wood hulls for those of steel. 

Throughout the world it is stated that the Merrimac and the Monitor 
were the first successful exponents of ironclad architecture. This idea is 
taught in the public schools from one end of this land to another and the 
teachers have impressed and continue to impress it upon their pupils. 

But it is not true history. Designed conjointly by Capt. John A. Stevenson 
and Capt. Chas. W. Austin and constructed and commanded by the latter 
the confederate ram Manassas was the first ironclad ever built. Capt. Austin 
was a Texan, a relative of Stephen P. Austin, and his family resides today 
at Houston at 2712 Fannin St. But for the success of this vessel the Merrimac 
would never have been built, and Ericsson would never have submitted his 
plans for the "cheese box on a raft". 

The first ironclad, The Enoch Train, a tow-boat on the Mississippi was 
purchased by Mr. Stevenson before the Federals had been driven from the 
field of Bull Run. It was a powerful vessel with twin screws and mammoth 
engines for a craft of its size, ISO ft. in length, it was registered at about 
100 tons. Hauled upon the ways at New Orleans builders swarmed over iis 
hull while all the city laughed at the plans laid down by the two captains. 
It was sheathed above the water lines under the direction of Commander 
Austin with two thicknesses of railroad rails and was fitted with a ram of 
iron pointing out beneath about five ft. in length. 

Before the vessel had been completed the blockade of the Mississippi 
had been established. A commodore stationed at New Orleans refused to 
man the vessel and shared the accepted belief that she was useless. Permis- 
sion to call for volunteers was given, however. With a crew of 19 men she 



— 35 — 

steamed down the river to its nioiitli. There lay 4 sloops of war hcariti}; a 
total armament of 56 guns. 

Of all the 20 souls aboard Capt. Austin alone stood upon the tlcek. 
Bearing down at full speed upon the blockailing fleet he aimed for the 
steam sloop of war F^ichniond 22 guns. In the teeth of a hail of fire thundering 
from half a hundred cannon the intrepid commander, standing alone and in 
open sight from every vessel, commanded the engineer to pile more coal 
under the boilers. Broadside after broadside came crashing about him like 
the fury of hell. Plowing through the water with all the speed of which the 
vessel was capable it was seen too late that a coal schooner lay between 
the ram and its victim. Without swerving the Manassas steamed on. Solid 
shot crashed and broke upon the iron sides, but still Capt. Austm stood un- 
hurt. With an awful shock the ironclad cut through and through the sailing 
vessel and plunged her spur far into the wooden sides of the Richmond just 
as every cannon aboard belched forth its load of canister and shell. 

The Manassas backed away unhurt with its gallant captain still standing 
on the deck. His clothes were torn into shreds, but burned and blackened 
as he was not a wound appeared upon his body. The Richmond, however, 
was a wreck, while the coal schooner was already at the bottom of the sea. 
In hot haste the remainder of the Federal fleet were steaming away from the 
monster that had attacked them. The Confederate vessel was left alone and 
the blockade was temporarily broken. But in getting away from its victimv 
the port engine of the ram had been broken. Pursuit was impossible. Slowly 
the Manassas steamed back to New Orleans only to be later vitally injured. 
She was run upon a sand bank to save the crew and was there abandoned 
by force of circumstances never to sail the sea again. 

But the advantage of an ironclad vessel of war had been demonstrated. 
The Manassas had been unarmed. At the same tune the power of a craft 
of her stamp manned by a sufficient crew and mounted with guns of large 
bore was recognized. Upon similar lines the Merrimac was built on the 
Atlantic coast and the Monitor was evolved from the brain of a Scandinavian. 
Capt. Austin and Capt. Stevenson had gained their victory in more ways 
than one. They had taught the scoffing world a lesson and in doing so de- 
veloped a hero for the Southern States whose record is unusurpassed. 

And yet his name is almost unknown while those of lesser lights have 
been brought into a publicity that will live forever. There was much to be 
desired in the chronicled histories of the southern navy and its official records. 
No man who ever fought upon the seas showed more intrepid valor than 
did Capt. Austin in his service beneath the stars and bars. In the North 
his name in unknown, while in the South few recognize the fact that a hero 
came out of Te.xas who set a standard for the world in fortitude and daring. 
With his death in 1889 the major part of his life's history was lost. Like 
all true men he seldom talked of his achievements. 

A distinguished family: Roger Sherman, one of the New England ancestors 
of Capt. Austin, signed the Declaration of Independence. Another of his rela- 
tives, Stephen F. Austin, is known as the Father of Texas. While his parents 



— 36 — 

resided in Ohio, Capt. Austin lived in the Lone Star State and commanded a 
vessel of the Harrus-Morgan line plying between New Orleans and Galveston. 
With the outbreak of the war his sympathies were with the South. He built 
and fought with the Manassas. Four of his brothers were in the Union Army 
while another was in the Confederate army. 

He was the only one who took to the sea. For four years his life was 
filled with daring exploit after exploit. Three times he was in prison, twice 
escaping. Now but few of his adventures are to be remembered, but those 
same few are enough to brand him as one of the greatest naval heroes of 
the age. After the Manassas has been abandoned he took to blockade running 
and from that time one feat of daring crowded rapidly upon another. 

Capture of the Fox: From New Orleans he went to Mobile, where the 
blockade was close. A great fleet was anchored off the town which practi- 
cally forbade all entrance to the harbour. The days dragged by until finally 
Capt. Austin, driven by waiting to an uncontrollable desire for something to 
turn up, sailed out of the harbour in the murky darkness of a cloudy night 
on a tour of investigation. There in the offing he discovered a steamer loaded 
with arms, ammunition and supplies for the waiting fleet. Back in the city 
he proposed his plan to the commanding officer. It was too daring for official 
recognition, but permission was given to enlist volunteers for the desperate 
mission. 

On the first favorable night in a small steam launch, Capt. Austin and 
six brave men went glinding out of the harbour. Unobserved they steamed 
to the steps leading down from the steamer's side. Confident of security, 
but one man had been left on the deck and he hailed the launch as it tied 
up to the vessel's side. 

"This is launch Number 7," came the response from Capt. Austin. "Where's 
the Capt, of this ship?" "He's asleep in the cabin," answered the watchman. 
"Lead me to him," commanded Capt. Austin. Without a thought of danger 
the sailor turned and led the way along the deck, the leader of the expedition 
following. As he climbed up the side of the vessel the remainder of the 
crew came close behind. Each had been instructed as to his duty and without 
a word they went to their different posts. Without knocking, the watch led 
the visitor into the Captain's cabin. When he awakened he was looking 
down the barrel of a revolver. 

The hatches had been closed on the crew and the 6' men were in control. 
Quickly slipping anchor chains the vessel was headed towards the harbor. 
She was laying to the westward of the channel and must necessarily cross 
its mouth. Scarcely had she started when she was hailed. "Transport Fox, 
bound for Key West," came the response from the deck of the vessel as she 
glided past. 

Again she was hailed, but the same reply took her safely on toward the 
goal. Once in the channel she was quickly put about and the next morning 
found her tied up at the Mobile wharves. Thousands of muskets and a hull 
full of ammunition were turned over to the confederacy with the ship. Capt. 



— 37 — 

Austin became the lion of the hour, and was presented with an eiu<^ant gold 
watch by the citizens of the town. 

This surpasses fiction: It was after the capture of New Orleans that 
Capt. Austin fell into the clutches of the enemy and was lodged there in prison, 
But jail walls could never hold him. Within a few days he was assisted to 
his liberty and secreted in the house of a sympathizer. For ten days he 
remained in hiding before a means of escape from the city was devised. 
Finally one dark night a friend from the outside came to the house and 
led Capt. Austin with his companion to the water front. Swimming out into 
the muddy water the two men climbed over the side of a coal schooner and 
hid themselves in the hold. The vessel was going out light bound for Havana, 
a haven of safety for the prisoners. 

At the appointed time a shuffling of feet on deck told the men below that 
the ship was under way. Until far out at sea they remained in the hold, 
stifled with the odor of bilge and the dust of coal. Their friend from the 
outside had shipped as mate. When darkness came he opened the hatch 
and the men released. 

Stealthily creeping to the cabin occupied by the master they opened the 
door and walked in. The captain was a German and all of his teutonic wrath 
blazed up at the sight of the dust begrimmedstdwaways. He demanded their 
story. Very frankly they told him that they were" estnping prisoners of war 
and wanted to go to Havana. With a great Prussian oath the masted rushed 
toward the door with the intention of giving the order to bout ship. Coolly 
producing a revolver Capt. Austin pointed the..f8tiz.z,le in the Captain's face. 

"Stay where you are," came the hoarse c-o+nmand. Obedience seemed neces- 
sary. The stowaways agreed to pay their passage if allowed the freedom of 
the vessel as passengers to Cuba. In the face of the demand the request was 
as complied with and the ship sailed on its course. 

But it was not for long. Morning dawned and with the dawn the stars 
and stripes appeared in the distance. The captain rushed to the rail and 
made an attempt to signal the vessel. Suddenly he felt himself held in a 
grasp of steel. He was forced hastily back into his cabin, the door was 
locked on him and Capt. Austin took command. A week later the shooner 
was tied up at the Havana wharves and Capt. Austin was still in charge. 
Turned over to the Cuban authorities his further immunity from captivity 
was avoided by virtue of a previous meeting with the captain general of 
the island. How this was brought about is another story. 

A terrible journey: The details of the capture of the blockade runner 
commanded by Capt. Austin in 1862 is forgotten history, but the fact remains 
that he in company with his second in command was confined in a dungeon 
in Fort Taylor at Key West. From their cell a window looked out over the 
waves of the Gulf of Mexico that beat fully 50 ft. below. For weeks they 
languished in captivity until finally help arrived. One day a rope was hastily 
thrust through the grating, followed by a jug containing a surplus supply of 
water and a package of bread. 

Below the window of the prison a ship floated at anchor and at her 



— 38 — 

stern was tied a small boat used as a tender. The location of the ship 
was marked. That night was dark. Securing the rope within the cell, Capt. 
Austin, with the water jug tied around his neck, climbed from the high aperture 
and swung out. Hand over hand he went down to freedom. Owing to the 
necessary haste his companion was just above him bearing the bread. When 
fully 20 ft. above the water Capt. Austin found himself at the end of the rope. 
It was too late to go back up. Letting go he went crashing feet downward 
into the waves below. His companion was fairly on top of him when he 
went under. Fortunately the noise was not noted, but the water in the un- 
corked jug was lost, as was also the bread. With bridges figuratively burned 
behind them and untold suffering ahead, they struck out according to previous 
agreement for the ship. Securing the yawl, Capt. Austin climbed aboard the 
vessel. The watch was napping. Working fast and quietly he unscrewed the 
compass from its place and dropped back with it into the small boat. It 
would have been suicidal to have attempted to secure provisions to replace 
those lost, and so the two sailed away destitute, shaping their course for 
Havana. Day dawned, but still the two men rowed on, assisted by a makeshift 
sail. The heat of a summer sun blazing over a tropic sea was intense. They 
were out of sight of land with water everywhere and not a drop to drink. 
Hunger gnawed at their vitals, but safety was in front, not behind. With the 
coming of night their suffering had increased to a point that seemed mad- 
dening. 

Another and another day passed; still there was nothing but the burning 
sun and the salt sea. Havana was ahead of them. Loaves of bread and 
bunches of fruit appeared piled up in luxurious plenty on the seat beside 
them only to vanish under touch. Clear, cool springs drippled from the bottom 
of the boat, but the water was not for their parched and swollen throats. 
Land appeared just behind only to fade away as with renewed efforts they 
rowed toward it. With sailor instinct they kept to their course. Another 
night found the two men raving stark mad, lying in the bottom of the yawl 
too weak and emaciated to even cry for help. Before another day came 
that would have assuredly brought death, the men were picked up by fisher- 
men just off the Cuban coast a few miles below Havana. Water and food 
were forced down their throats a little at a time. At first it seemed as though 
relief was as likely to prove fatal as suffering had been before, but slowly 
under the ministering hand of the fishermen they improved. Almost worn 
out by their awful experience they were taken to Havana and turned over to 
the authorities. They were taken before the captain general and told their 
story. Struck by their tale and by their appearance, he released them on 
parole. The freedom of the city was theirs. 

But the publicity given the event reached the army authorities in the 
North and an officer was despatched to bring them back. When he arrived 
Austin and his companion were summoned to appear before the governor 
of the Island. A young lieutenant in his blue uniform was there awaiting 
them in the private office of the captain general who sat at his desk writing. 
At last he turned toward the group. In his hand he held a document which 



— 39 — 

he handed to Austin. It was n certificate of citizenship in Cuba. Snapping 
ther fingers at the officer who had come to get them, they left the palace 
free men. 

During the remainder of their stay in the Cuban capital Capt. Austin 
and his companion struck up a close friendship with the Governor who iiad 
given them their liberty. This fact proved their salvation later. 

The Blockader's last run: But it was in Galveston Harbor that Hie last 
and most brilliant event in a civil war career occurred under the eyes of 
the entire city. Old men tell of it yet, although with years tile memory of the 
deed is dimmed. In broad daylight Capt. Austin ran the blockade of the port 
with his ship the Susanna and brought provisions and war supplies to a 
distressed land. 

It was in the last year of the struggle the result of which was already 
foregone. Almost all of the blockaded ports along the Atlantic and the gulf 
had been captured and the entire southern squadron was blocking the harbor. 
The story of the event as told by the U. S. ship Seminole, which led the 
chase, has already been published in the New York World under the title, 
"A Dash Through a Fleet." The authority for the tale already told was un- 
actjuainted with the identify of the captain of the vessel he had chased, but 
with due consideration gives him credit for being the coolest man that ever 
walked a quarterdeck. 

The Susanna was built on the Clyde and was a long, low steamer built 
for speed and concealment. Time after time she had run into Galveston 
Harbor through the fleet collected outside, but always before at night. Her 
arrival was regular and always on time. When expected she always turned 
up and tied at the wharf in the morning. Her last run was momentous. Leav- 
ing Havana with a cargo of gunpowder and provisions, calculations had been 
made as formerly to arrive off the harbor under cover of darkness, but a 
break in the machinery caused delay. Steaming along Capt. Austin found 
himself one morning but a few miles off Galveston and in sight of the blockad- 
ing fleet. 

As yet he was unseen owing to the low construction of his ship and he 
decided to run out to sea; but enquiry below elicited the information that 
the supply of coal would not be sufficient for 12 hours more. The only 
filternative was to make for a place of concealment under the shore and 
thither the prow was turned. 

But the overhanging smoke had attracted the attention of the fleet, and 
a ship of war was fast bearing down upon the daring blockade runners. 
Without a moment's hesitancy Capt. Austin determined to run the gauntlet. 
The course was again changed and the Susanna again headed for the bar. 
A dozen ships barred her way. 

With great clouds of smoke pouring from her funnels, and all attempt 
at concealtment thrown to the winds, the swift Susanna rushed on seemingly 
to sure destruction. Soon she came within range and every vessel opened 
up on her from a long distance. The Seminole was in the lead and sent a 



40 



solid shot across the bow of the long dark ship that fairly skimmed the 
water. Foam splashed up over the deck, but the warning had no effect. 

Cutting in the warship decreased the distance between it and the Susanna 
until objects could be plainly seen from one deck to another. Shot after shot 
went screaming through the air toward the blockade runner, but still she 
kept her course. The regular channel was blocked, but she went straight 
ahead, raked fore and aft. The Susanna quivering like a frightened animal, 
rushed on; all Galveston was on the wharves watching the engagement, hoping 
and praying for the safety of the vessel. Suddenly the course of the Susanna 
was changed. Doubling around the Seminole, she made straight for shallow 
water and the bar. On board the sloop of war they believed her captain 
decided to beach her and the course was taken up in the hope of capturing 
the crew and preventing the absolute destruction of the vessel. 

But it was part of the trick. Another turn that sent the water swirling 
under the prow and the course was again changed. Crossing at a dangerous 
and generally unknown place on the short bar the Susanna entered the deeper 
channel of the bay. Her prow had been shot away and both smokestacks 
were wrecked, but riddled with shot and shell as she was she steamed slowly 
to the wharves and discharged her cargo. 

During the entire engagement Captain Austin, according to the Commander 
of the Seminole, coolly paced the bridge with his hands in his pockets and 
a cigar between his teeth. Not once did he leave his place or show a sign 
of trepidation in spite of the fact that half a ton of black powder was stored 
directly beneath him. In the shower of shot and shell he stood as he had 
on the deck of the Manassas facing almost certain death while his ship v.'as 
being shot away beneath him. Cool courage, perfect seamanship and an 
absolute knowledge of the harbour assisted him in performing another exploit 
that had never been equalled and that only emphasizes the fact that some 
of the credit given to others belongs to him. 

On the next voyage the ship commanded by Capt. Austin was cornered 
and captured at sea by a federal sloop of war and he was taken to Philadelphia 
in his own vessel, there to be thrown into prison. A short time afterwards the 
struggle was ended. Returning to Galveston the hero went back to the 
Merchant Marine and again took charge of a A'lorgan liner. It was at this 
time that he met and married Miss Georgia Grafton, who resided in the 
Texas seaport. During the struggle Capt. Austin was unknown to the girl 
he later took for a wife, but his vessel, the Susanna, had brought her many 
good things from foreign lands and his reputation as the handsomest and 
most daring man in Texas was common property. 

Some time later the couple removed to Savannah, where Capt. Austin 
took charge of the construction of the jetties at the mouth of the river. There 
the family of two sons and one daughter grew up from childhood to maturity. 

In 1889 this naval hero of the South died as a result of exposure during 
the war and today his body rests upon the shores of the Atlantic while the 
ever-bearing waves pay tribute to his greatness. — "Nor should his glory 
be forgot while fame her record keeps."

as ail exconiinunicated heretic, l^inloii was dfi'trcd him il' he 
woiihl rc'iioniK'c Protcstaiitisiii, I)ut witli scorn he refused it. 
The Roman Chin-ch, to its everlasting- shame, reiused to permit 
him to see his wife and ehihh-en. His death, as a martyr to 
free religion, on Fehruary 4, 1554>, was a stain on Queen Mary 
and the Roman Catholic Chuicli that never can l)e effaced. 

17. Bernard Rogers, fifth child ol' the \{v\ . .John Rogers and 
Adriana Pratt, was I)orii in 1.543 at \N'iltenl)crg, Saxony. lie 
married in Scotland ahout 1564. 

18. Thomas Matthew Rogers, eldest son of Bernard Rogers, was 
horn ahout 1.5().). He married al)out 1.38<> a Miss Mc.Murds. 

19. Thomas Rogers was the eldest son of Thomas Matthew Rogers. 
He was horn in July, lo8(!, and died in Feh., 1()21. He married 
about 1606, Grace. His children were Joseph, 1). KiOT; 
Thomas, 1609; John, h. 1 6 H,; William, h. 1618; and James, 
b. 1615. He came to America, with hi5f*oldest son, Joseph, in 
the good ship, "Mayflower". He left the others hehind l)e- 
cause they were too young to make tjje,.trip. They all came 
over later at different times, and, «s-6crC^! Bradford said, "mar- 
ried and had many children." --—»"'=-"'' 

20. James Rogers, youngest son of Thomas Rogers and Grace, was 
born in England in 1615; and died in New London, Conn., on 
February 16, 1687. He married in Stratford, Conn., Elizabeth, 

daughter of Samuel Rowland, a landed proprietor of that place. 
She died at New London, Conn., in 1709. 

James Rogers came to America in 1635 in the good ship 
"Increase". In 1637 he was one of the six men from Say- 
brook, Avho, under Capt. John Underbill, took part in the 
Pequot War. 

He then moved to Stratford, Conn., where he acquired pro- 
perty, and from there he went to INIilford, Conn., where he ac- 
quired considerable property and became a baker on a very 
large scale. He supplied all New England, New York, Virginia 
and Barbadoes with biscuit. Milford became too small for the 
operations of this great business man. His friend, Gov. Win- 
thrope, induced him to settle in New London, where he took a 
place next to the Governor's. He soon became by far the largest 
land holder and richest man in the colony, and, in addition to 



— 92 — 

his large baking business, he took charge of the town mill. 
He also carried on by far the most extensive domestic and 
foreign trade of any man in New London County. He and his 
sons were more esteemed and liked by the Indians than any 
other men in the colonies. 

Uncas, Chief of the Mohigans, blood brother of Samuel 
Rogers, one of the sons of James Rogers, promised Samuel that 
he would protect him with all his warriors in case of emergency. 
Samuel decided to test the faith of his friend, Uncas. "When 
prepared for the experiment, he fired a signal of alarm, which 
had been concerted with his tawny friend, in case either should 
be disturbed b}- an enemy ; and in half an hour's time grim bands 
of warriors were seen on the hills and soon came rushing down 
with the sachem at their head to the rescue of their friend. 
Rogers had prepared a feast for their entertainment, but it was 
probable that they relished the trick nearly as much as the 
banquet." 

James Rogers was deputy to the Court of Elections for May, 
1661, May, 1662, and October, 1662. He was representative 
to the General Court seven times between 1662 and 1673. He 
was Corn Commissioner for New London in 1662, and was 
on the committee of fortifications for New London. 

Rev. John Rogers, son of James, founded the Rogerene 
Church in America, and suffered great religious persecution. 

21. Capt. James Rogers was the sixth child of James Rogers and 
Elizabeth Rowland. He Avas born in Milford, Conn., on Feb- 
ruary 15, 1652, and was baptized by the Rev. John Ci'andall 
of Westerley, R. I., and he died at New London, Conn., on 
November 8, 1713. He married on November 5, 1674, Mary, 
daughter of Jeffrey Jordan. 

Capt. James Rogers was a member of the earlj^ Rogerene 
Church. He owned a great deal of land and also a tannery. 
His household articles were verj^ numerous and very costly. 
He owned and was captain of a large ship which he ran between 
foreign ports and America. "His ability to navigate and com- 
mand a foreign bound vessel at such an age (21 years old) is 
sufficient guarantee of the skill and enterprise of this youth." 
Mary Jordan Avas a passenger from Tester, Ireland, on his ship. 
He married her upon landing, and in after life he often said 



— 93 — 

that it was the riflicst i'a;,<40 lli..; lu' t\tr cai-iicd. Maiv died at 
the hoiist' of her son, James, on February 28, 171. 'J.
