Who Was The Founder Of Rogers, Ohio?

His name is Theophilus Gates Rogers.  On the map you will see T.G. Rogers.  He platted Rogers in 1883.  Now, finding history on Rogers, Ohio has proven to be very difficult.  Imagine my surprise when I found a picture of Mr. Rogers in an old book at the library!!  Like finding buried treasure!  Now if the rest of Rogers history will just unfold as easily!  Very respected, a republican, and a Quaker, he owned several plots of land around Rogers, until his death in 1898. 
The map is Rogers, 1902, but you can still see T.G. Rogers and the property he had owned.  I am still looking for information on Rogers and it's history. If you know any, I would love to hear it!
