  1. New EnglandHistorical and Genealogical Register , NEGHS, Boston Mass, Vol 5 page 314.

He was the son of President John Rogers of Harvard and Elizabeth, daughter of Gen. Daniel Denison, and brother in law of his associate on the bench, John Appleton, who married his sister, Elizabeth. He was graduated from Harvard in 1686 in his nineteenth year and became the teacher of the Grammar School. He presented a certificate of approbation signed by Rev. William Hubbard, Rev. John Rogers, his brother, and Rev. Joseph Qerrish to the Court at Ipswich in March, 1702 and was admitted to practice law. Returning from Hampton on the first day of December, 1722, he missed his way in Salisbury, took a wrong path that led into Salisbury marshes, where he was bewildered and lost. He called twice at the nearest house, explaining that he was bewildered and praying for help and guidance that he might reach the ferry over the Merrimac. His body was found some days later.

The Latin found on the gravestone of Daniel Rogers:

Turbidus ad Laetos Solari Lumine Portus Souicitos Nautas per mare fert Aquilo:

Me Borealis Agens Nilidum super Aetheris Axem Justitiae Solis Luce beavit Hvems.

May be translated freely :

The stormy North wind drives the anxious sailors over the sea to the harbors rejoicing in the sim light.

The northem Winter, bearing me above the blasts, has blessed [me] with the light of the Sun of Righteousness.
