I ran across your blog regarding JL Rogers of Vermillion Kansas.  As a boy, I lived near his house, and we went by Roger's corner on the way to town. He had been the Postmaster back in the late ninety's and early 1900's.  The house sat on the south west corner, a half mile east of Vermillion, on what is now referred to as the Axtel corner.  We have been away from there since 1942, but keep in contact with the old home town, I recall his daughter Irene, and she had a young son a little younger than I am [I'm no 85].  I know nothing about the place you describe.

How exciting! Yes, I am family, and I have an awesome portrait of J.L. Rogers of Vermillion, KS. He was my Grandfather's Grandfather. I have pictures of him with his children as well, and even a trunk full of his papers and things, I believe that in the trunk there are even the original blueprints/plans for the house you have pictured above. His daughter also kept scrap books while growing up in that house. She was Mable Rogers- Dillehay... my Grandfather's Mother.

This is absolutely fascinating information you have gathered and so generously host here. Im just thrilled to have found it, and I would love to contribute any of the artifacts/ info I have that you might find of interest.

I am following on Google+ so you can get a hold of me that way. Or look me up on Facebook and I will post those pics for you.

Thank you so much for this,
Tani Hughes, Nampa, ID
