Ezekiel J. Rogers.
Ezekiel J. Rogers, an old resident of Red Bank, died at his home on Monmouth street yesterday aged 70 years and 7 months. His death was principally due to two strokes of paralysis he received last June, although he had been in poor health during the past three years. Since the attack of paralysis he had been gradually sinking and at various times it was thought that his end was near. He was moved from Ocean Grove to his home here about two weeks ago and shortly after arriving here pneumonia set in. His system was in such a weakened condition that he was unable to rally. Mr. Rogers was born at Englishtown, March 24th, 1825. When he was 21 years old he moved to Red Bank and opened a wholesale and retail tobacco business at the corner of Wharf avenue and Front street, in the store now occupied by John Bailey. He afterward started the first milk route in Red Bank. In 1852 he was elected a constable, and he held this office eight years. He engaged about that time in the produce business in Washington market, New York city. He was also an auctioneer. He retired from active business abut five years ago. He was married twice, his first wife being Mrs. Henrietta B. Cornell, whom he married January 27th, 1848. She died in 1884. In 1886 he married Mrs. Mary VanDorn, who survives him. He leaves four children, Mrs. John S. Throckmorton and Frank Rogers of Red Bank, Lawrence Rogers of Ocean Grove and Mrs. George Hahn of Georgia. He left a comparatively large estate.
The funeral will be held at the house on Friday afternoon at one o'clock. Rev. William Mitchell will officiate and he will be assisted by Rev. F. R. Harbaugh and Rev. J. K. Manning of Red Bank, and Rev. W. M. White of Atlantic City. The interment will be in Fair View cemetery.
