1. Dr. John George Rogers. Dr. John George Rogers was one of the most noted of the physicians and surgeons of the pioneer days of Clermont County, who practiced at a time when it was necessary for great sacrifice of personal comfort for the taking of long, arduous rides over poor roads in sparsely settled districts. Dr. Rogers was one of the most influential and unflinching opponents of slavery and lived to see his cherished anti-slavery principles adopted and carried out by the government.

. A staunch abolitionist, Rogers along with Caleb Walker and the brothers Francis and Thomas Donaldson were the nucleus of a group called the Chieftains of Liberty, a vigilance committee set up to protect Birney’s press from destruction by pro-slavery mobs from Kentucky and Cincinnati. Rogers died in 1882 thus he was able to see the child that he delivered win the war that liberated 4 million enslaved African Americans, the goal that Rogers dedicated most of his life to accomplish.
