Samuel C.A. Rogers was born 1810 in Virginia. He participated in battles against the Lipan Apaches and Tonkawas and in the summer of 1832 fought in the battle of Sandy Creek. On July 17, 1835, he was elected secretary of the Lavaca-Navidad Meeting, which drew up a document protesting the Mexican government’s treatment of American colonists. Mexican officials later ordered the seizure of all participants of the meeting, but warned by his future mother-in-law of his impending arrest, Rogers escaped. In the fall of 1835 he was a member of the Texas Army of the People and participated in the Grass Fight and the Siege of Béxar. During this time he served in Capt. John Alley’s company. He was a member of Capt. John Sutherland’s company from June to September 1836. In August 1840 he was also involved in the battle of Plum Creek against the Comanches, and he was with Capt. Lafayette Ward’s company on the campaign against Rafael Vásquez in 1842. Rogers died on February 13, 1892.
