Name of creator
David Rogers, of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, assembled information about his aunt Esther Elizabeth Rogers in 1995 as part of his research into family history. Esther E. Rogers was born 4 October 1894 in Northhampton, New Brunswick, daughter of Harrison W. and Emily Knox Rogers. She attended the Mount Allison Ladies’ College, 1914-1915, taking elocution and music. She taught piano privately in Northhampton. She married John Draper on 28 May 1918 and died 23 February 1919 in Woodstock, New Brunswick, said to be the victim of “the Spanish flu”.
Esther Rogers' letters were kept by her sister Jean Rogers and transcribed by David Rogers, who also recorded an interview with Jean Rogers in 1994. David Rogers donated these transcriptions to the Archives in 1995.
