[Identification of item], James Rogers papers, 1800-1900, 1F52M-65, Special Collections, University of Kentucky. Farmer, soldier. James Rogers was born May 13, 1840 in Bourbon County, Ky. He served in Company C of the First Battalion, of the Kentucky Mounted Rifles and later as adjutant of the Third Battalion during the Civil War.  After the war he returned to his home in Bourbon County as a breeder of trotting horses and to manage the farming business. Journals, pages of account books, notes, tax receipts, bills and correspondence comprise the majority of this 19th century family collection. The correspondence is mainly between Warren B. Rogers and his wife Mary Lindsay Rogers when Rogers was away on business selling horses and mules. The early letters from Rogers are addressed to Flat Rock, Ky. and the later ones to "Glenwood" in Bourbon County, Ky. Also included are letters from their daughters, Mary, who attended Daughters College near Harrodsburg, Ky. and from their son James, who fought with the Confederate Army in Virginia. The letters discuss personal and business matters as well as politics. Financial records are comprised of bills from various nurseries, clothiers, hardware stores and shoemakers, as well as random pages of account books. The journals are those written by Mary Lindsay Rogers and her son James. Mrs. Rogers' journal (1853-1861) is composed of short entries noting such things as the weather, the doings of her family and friends, business dealings and politics. James Rogers' journal (1852, 1854, 1856, 1859-1860 and 1861) discusses similar subjects. Also included are some records of the Flat Rock Debating Club and a publication entitled "MANUAL OF SUBORDINATE GRANGE OF THE PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY", published in Philadelphia in 1873.
