MISSES ELLA AND PRISCILLA ROGERS, twin sisters, and daughters of Mr.
Robin and Mrs. Cynthia Crittendon Rogers, of Meador, Allen County, Ky.,
were born January 2, 1891. They professed a hope in Christ in 1904.
These two girls were well reared and have proved an honor to
their race, both morally and intellectually.
Miss Priscilla was united in marriage to Mr. Hershell Stark and
in a short time while afterward died. Miss Ella is still living with her
parents and to know her is to love her.
The little boy standing between them [photograph included] is
their nephew, Vernon Rogers, son of Mr. James Rogers. He was born April
28, 1918. His mother is dead. The girl on the left of the boy is Ella.
