March 31 - Mattie Rogers
March 31, 1870 is the birthday of Martha Jane (Best) Rogers, my great-grandma. She was the daughter of Augustus and Eliza (Holmes) Best. Married in 1887 to Willard Rogers, she was the mother of twelve children. This picture of Mattie was taken, I believe, in the forties on another birthday. Mattie died in Feb. 1953 and is buried in the Brown Cemetery - Just adjacent to her birthplace and later the home of she and Willard and their children.
