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.

on the other hand, there is this record that says she was born in Newburgh
