Narrative

Some notes for Edward "Ned" and Anna (Cunningham) Rodgers that don't fit anywhere else.

Ned Rodgers is not listed in the First Valuation Revision Book, which covers the years 1864 - 1879, at least not in Ballymadeerfy. Were they living with one of their families?

I have a note that says that the 50th anniversary picture of the Rodgers and their descendants was taken in February on an exceptionally warm day. This is according to their grand-daughter Ann (O'Rourke) Telzrow, who is in the picture and was about age 5 at the time.

The early research on this family was done by Edward and Anna's granddaughter, Ann "Nan" (Gallagher) Fleming, who was a librarian. She provided a lot of information which made it possible to find original records, to locate married children on the later censuses, etc.

Family information had said that their first three children were born in England, but their oldest daughter Mary's birth record is in Ireland. Hugh's baptism was in Kilkeel while his parents were living in Ballymadeerfy.

Hugh's places of death is unknown. He may be the Hugh Rogers who died in West Derby and Toxteth Park, Liverpool, England, in the third quarter of 1870. He did not accompany his mother to the United States, and the family always said that he died in England.

In 1900, when asked for their year of immigration to the United States, Ned Rodgers said 1867 and Ann said 1870. These might be the years they each left Ireland, or they might just be the typical inaccuracies of immigration years on censuses. If it is the year that each of them left Ireland, that would fit in with the family's story that Ned left Ireland first and then went back to get his wife. See below under "Was Edward "Ned" Rodgers a Fenian?"

According to Edward Rodgers' granddaughter Ellen (O'Rourke) Guarnieri, when Ned and Ann were riding the train from New York to Ohio, Ned wanted to get off in Scranton, Pennsylvania, because the other immigrants they were with were all talking about how easy it was to get work in the mines. Ann said, I didn't come all this way to have you spend your life underground, we're staying on this train to Ohio.' This seems to imply that they arrived together, or that one or the other waited in New York for the other to make the voyage.

-------------------
Was Edward "Ned" Rodgers a Fenian?

According to his granddaughter Ellen (O'Rourke) Guarnieri and others, Ned Rodgers "was in the British Navy. He had to leave Ireland because of some trouble with the predecessors of Sinn Fein. He went back to get his wife, and then they came to America."

Since the predecessors of Sinn Fein were the Irish Republican Brotherhood, and there was indeed "some trouble" involving them in Ireland in 1867, it is possible that Ned had some role in the trouble. He was a sailor when married, their first daughter was born in Ireland in 1866, their first son Hugh was baptized in January 1868, and their next child William was born in England in 1870. Additionally Ned gave 1867 as his year as immigration.

On Jan 2, 2010, there was no reference to Ned Rodgers' service records in the [British] Registers of Seamen's Services at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/royal-navy-service.asp. It appears that all the records in this series, Continuous Service engagement books, ADM 139, were online by then.

In October 2010 I emailed the British Archives and asked if suspected Fenians' records were removed from the military records. They responded with the stock answer suggesting how to do research, when the library was open, etc. But they also said that the merchant marine data was not yet online. Perhaps Ned Rodgers was in the Merchant Marines.

There is also a chance that he was working for a local sailor and the story was embellished, but I don't think that is the case.

Ned Rodgers' name is not in the online list of those attending a Fenian Convention in Cleveland in 1877.(freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mruddy/VCAttendees.htm).

In March 2019 I inquired on the "One Day in the Life of Kilkeel" group at facebook.com regarding records of Fenian activity in Kilkeel. Dermot Balson was only able to find a few clippings. The only one from 1867 only talked about planned or canceled activity, and did not mention any names.

When their daughter Helen "Nell" was born on August 9, 1878, the Rodgers were living "near city limits, Meech Street." The record was from the Board of Health of the City of Cleveland. Meech St. is in the Newburgh section of Cleveland, so it must have been near the boundary with Newburgh City at the time.

Naturalization before June 15, 1900   possibly in 1883 7a
General

On the 1900 Census Edward "Ned" Rodgers said he was a naturalized citizen.

There is a record in the Probate Court records of Cuyahoga County of the naturalization of an Edward Rogers on October 6, 1883. (Vol. 17, Page 143, NB. Country IR). His witness was Theodore Keegan, of 2300 Woodland Hills Rd.

There is no address or other information for Edward. I don't know if this is "our" Edward Rodgers or not. This man's Declaration of Intention to become a citizen was made in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio. Those records are kept in the National Archives branch in Chicago and are not yet online.
