Rogers, John,

1829–1904, American sculptor, b. Salem, Mass. Trained as an engineer, he was forced by failing eyesight to work as a machinist. He began modeling in clay as a pastime and studied sculpture in Rome for a short while. His early clay group, The Slave Auction, given publicity by the abolitionists, and "Rogers groups" had attained great popularity by the end of the Civil War. Thousands of copies were made by machine of such subjects as One More Shot, Going to the Minister, and The Wounded Scout. As accurate records of the period, they have regained a certain popularity.

Rogers, John

(1648–1721) religious reformer; born in Milford, Conn. His parents were wealthy Connecticut merchants. He converted to the Seventh-Day Baptist faith (1674) but then developed his own small sect, known as the Rogerenes. He wrote The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ (1720). Persecuted intensely for his persuasions, he was imprisoned seven times, for a total of 15 years. He married three times (1670, 1690, 1714), the second time to a maid-servant without any legal ceremony; she later sued him and was herself imprisoned for bearing a child out of wedlock. He died of smallpox in Boston. Less known than Roger Williams, he was a pioneer of religious freedom.

Rogers, John (Jr.)

(1829–1904) sculptor; born in Salem, Mass. He began as a machinist, draftsman, and railroad mechanic in the Northeast and in Missouri. After study in Paris and Rome (1858–59), he established himself in New York City, and by 1877, lived in New Canaan, Conn. He was famous for the mass production of his narrative figural works in plaster, such as The Fugitive's Story (1869).
