Minnie Lou Ella Allen Rogers

Minnie Lou Ella Allen was the daughter of Mary Catherine Finney and William Allen. In my Finney book, I had no information other than what Rosamary High Finney's book supplied - her parents and her husband on page 98.

Recently, her grandsons Dave and Gene Rogers, and their sister Jan Rogers Caputo gave me the missing information.

Minnie Lou Ella (or Louella)  Allen

Birth: 8 Aug 1889inTyro, Montgomery, KS
Death: 11 Feb 1922inMontpelier, Blackford, Indiana

Minnie was married to Grant J Rogers (in the book) and Joseph Grant Rogers in his records
          Birth: Feb 16, 1888inMontpelier, Blackford, Indiana

Death: July 30, 1957inCanon City, Fremont, Colorado, USA

Minnie Lou Allen (sure looks a bit like Clarissa Copeland - Samantha Jane Finney Copeland's daughter!)

Joseph Grant Rogers

The grandchildren are trying to solve the mystery of where Minnie was buried. She and her family lived in Colorado, but she must have been traveling when she passed in 1922. After sending for a death certificate, they discovered her place of death. They have written to the cemetery in Blackford, IN but have received no response.
provides a detailed and fascinating history of his life and times.

Minnie and Grant had one son.

Loren was married to Mary Alta Cunningham

The Rogers grandchildren have supplied a host of photos on the Findagrave web site, as well as When the Finney book is updated, I will include several. I have included some on this page.
