John Rogers was born on 22 September 1670 in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony, the son of John and Elizabeth (Pabodie) Rogers.[1][2][3]

His grandfather, John Rogers, in his 1691 will, left his grandson John his house and land in Duxborough. He was to pay his sister's legacies.[4][5] [6][7]

He died in Boston on 02 November 1696.[8] The estate of John Rogers Junr. of Duxbury was inventoried on 17 November 1696, and sworn by his administrator, brother-in-law Samuel Bradford of Plymouth, on 04 December 1696. His estate contained housing and lands valued at £150, as well as the usual farming equipment and stock. From the inventory, it appears he was mainly a cattle farmer.[9] No marriage record is found for him, and there is no mention of a widow or children in his probate records, so it is presumed he was unmarried.[3]
