William G. Rogers (1854-1933) homesteaded in the Carberry, Manitoba area beginning in 1878. He was born in New Boyne, Leeds County, Ontario. Rogers' parents were Bessie Alexander (1819-1900) and Thomas Rogers (1837-1895) who had children Mary Ann, Elizabeth, Alexander, Alecia, Pricilla, Charolette, Thomas S., Joseph McKenzie, Adaline, and Amelia. He married Margaret Ann Stinson ([187-]-1960) in 1890 and they had children Mary Eliza, Olive Margaret, Ruby Winnifred, William Byron, Hazel, Irene Gertrude, Mildred, Alexandra, and Alma. Rogers moved to Manitoba from the area near Perth, Ontario. He was educated at home until 1870 when he attended the Farmersvillle Grammar School. After six months there Rogers worked at a general store, teaching, cheese-making, farmed, loaded trains before moving to the Red River Settlement.
