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.
