      • Oct. 2 Wolfeboro's First Settlers with Jim Rogers

        The Settlement of Wolfeboro passed through several phases before development finally stabilized. Early attempts inevitably failed. These are discussed as milestone timelines. The last phase prior to stabilization only partly met the conditions specified by the proprietors, but it codified the eventual distribution of a core piece of land conveyed to a set of seven families that we now refer to as the original settlers.

        The story is told from the viewpoint of the Lary/Rogers family. Mercy Rogers, the daughter of Lt. Charles Rogers, was the wife of Joseph Lary one of the seven families mentioned above. Mercy gave birth to Wolfebrough's firstborn child Eliza.

        Jim is a direct descendant of Lt. Charles Rogers who fought in the French & Indian War with Gen. Wolfe and was honored by King George.

        Jim Rogers was Corporate Director for Technology Integration at Allied Bendix Aerospace, Director of Engineering for SDC east coast operations and Director of Advanced Programs at Defense Systems Inc. He has served as President of the Wolfeboro Historical Society for the past eleven years. He is also a native son of Wolfeboro, born at Huggins Hospital on New Year's Day 1939.

        ?The event will take place at the community center, 22 Lehner St., at 7:00pm. Free refreshments will be served.
