I was delighted to read this as I am descended from the Irish Rogers family listed in this article. It painted such a warm and interesting picture of their life there at that time. Meredith Rogers and Eliza (Donnelly) and their 13 year old son were there in the 1870 census, and I imagined James in the school... and the Nation's rails having been forged with the help of my 3x Great Grandfather. It also answered a question I had for my research about how it was that my 3xG Grandmother Eliza was listed as having lived in the "Campgrounds" on her death certiicate. It made me sad to think of her living in... a tent? But now I'm happier to know it was better than that. Lovely article. Thank you for putting it out here. - Joy
