Cemetery History

John Alexander Rogers, Jr. was born May 14, 1817, in Rogersville, Hawkins County, Tennessee.  First serving as a courier to Stephen Austin and Sam Houston in 1835-36, he was a soldier for the Republic of Texas Army until 1845. He brought his wife and family to Harper in 1876.
John died January 22, 1886, and was buried here, just a few years after the first post office was established. Prior to his death, Rogers deeded 2 1/2 acres for the Harper School on Jan 30, 1885.
His widow, Mary Williams Rogers, deeded his grave site along with 3 acres to establish the Harper Cemetery on June 26, 1897.
