Harry Alexander Rodgers, Sr.
Son of Abram Wiley Rodgers (1823-1883) and Isabella Dick Saffell (1844-1927). First married widow Sarah (Sadie) MacGuire Rosenbaum (b. 1875), San Francisco, 1901. The marriage soon ended in divorce; there were no offspring. In 1904, he wed Olive Craig, of Paris, TX, after moving to St. Louis, MO, where the two of them met. Harry was a well-known and innovative young advertising executive; he owned his own company and billed himself as an "advertect." She was a singer. Earlier, he had worked as a newspaper reporter and as a representative of several western and midwestern companies. The couple had two children: Harry Alexander, Jr. (1909-1938) and Mary Isabelle (1911-1968). Both are buried, as is their mother Olive, in Evergreen Cemetery, Paris, TX.
