In the year of 1941, on the 28th day of October in Webster Parish, a son was born to Bolden Green and Mazerie Autrey. They gifted him with the name Rogers Green. Rogers’ parents preceded him in death.
Rogers confessed Christ during his youth, under the leadership of the Rev. B. F. Martin. Although not actively participating with any religious affiliation, he held strong to his belief in Christ and of his salvation.
Rogers united in holy matrimony to Georgia Isaac and remained united for 46 years until her death.
Rogers was a hard worker and serviceman. He began his work history as a young teen delivering for David’s Drug Store. At the age of 24, he was inducted into the Army Branch of the military and upon completion of his service to his country, he received a Honorable Discharge.
