Mrs. Callie Rogers...

Title

Mrs. Callie Rogers...

Description

"Mrs Callie Rodgers, who owned one-half block of valuable property. She was forced to leave her home and take an insane daughter to safety, leaving a helpless sick daughter behind. There she was found by the burners. They took her out and placed her in a chair, from which she watched them burn the little home, not leaving her a pillow or bed to rest on. She was later rescued by the Red Cross workers and taken to a place of safety. Before the disaster, this little family was independent. Today they are subjects of charity."

Callie Rogers and her family lived at 608 E. Eastor Street.
