Family Background

Lincoln Rogers was born in Victoria, British Columbia, on November 17, 1864. (He was sometimes called “Link.”)

Lincoln’s father was Jeremiah Rogers (1818-1879), who was a logger in the Vancouver area in the 1860s. (Jericho Beach was named after him, although the details are not clear. Some sources suggest that Jeremiah called the area Jericho, after the biblical Jeremiah, who lived at Jericho. Some say that the area was known as “Jerry’s Cove.” Other sources say that Jeremiah’s logging business was often called “Jerry and Co.”)

Lincoln’s mother was Sarah Strang (1839-1889).

Jeremiah and Sarah were from New Brunswick. They moved to British Columbia in the mid-1860s, first to Vancouver Island, and later to New Westminster. In 1872 the family was living in a house in the Jericho Beach area.

Lincoln Rogers

In the late 1870s, Lincoln Rogers went to school at St. Louis College in New Westminster.

When Lincoln was about 17, he began working in the steamship business. His uncle, William Rogers, built the S.S. “Robert Dunsmuir” and the S.S. “City of Nanaimo” [later called “The Bowena”].

Life in Nanaimo

Most biographies of Lincoln refer to his 1911 marriage to Sarah, the daughter of James Beaver of Wisconsin.

It appears, however, that Lincoln may have had another family, starting about 20 years earlier. In the 1891 Canada census, Lincoln was living with Anne and three children, who were all born in the United States. Lincoln was 26 years old. Anne was 30, and her children were James (age 12); George (age 9); and Walter (age 7), so Anne had probably been married before.

In 1901, Lincoln still had an address in Nanaimo.

In the 1901 Canada census, he was married; his wife was now called Emma (with an improbable age of 27, since her son, Walter, was now 17).

Lincoln in Vancouver

Lincoln first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1903. He lived at the following addresses in Vancouver.

1903 to 1906 Number 11, 22 West Cordova Street
1907 to 1909 255 East Hastings Street
1910 to 1911 Number 4, 618 Georgia Street
1912 to 1914 Number 23, 709 Dunsmuir Street
1915 Number 41, 1601 Comox Street
1916 to 1918 1801 Nelson Street
1919 and 1920 1051 Beach Avenue

Lincoln was the captain of the “Robert Dunsmuir” until 1906, when he became the manager of the Burrard Steamship Company and the Lincoln Steamship Company.

Marriage to Sarah (“Sadie”) and Later Life in Vancouver

On September 18, 1911, in Seattle, Washington, Lincoln married Sarah Martha Rogers (sometimes known as “Sadie”). She was born in Racine, Wisconsin, about 1874. Her parents were Gerald Hanson Beaver and Maria Sunderson (sometimes Stone).

Sarah had been married before, to James C. Rogers. Their marriage was in Seattle on December 7, 1900. James was born in Minnesota about 1880.

In 1910, James and Sarah were living in Seattle. James was a cigar store salesman. It is not clear what happened to James and Sarah between 1910 and the time of Sarah’s marriage to Lincoln Rogers in 1911.

After Lincoln’s marriage, he operated the Lincoln Steamship Company in Vancouver.

Henderson’s Greater Vancouver Directory, 1912, Part 2, page 940.

Henderson’s Greater Vancouver Directory, 1912, Part 2, page 940.

He was also a director and assistant manager of the Vancouver Dredging and Salvage Company.

Lincoln died in Vancouver on November 16, 1920. He was buried in Fraser Cemetery in New Westminster.

One of the executors of Lincoln’s will was Thomas William Berridge, who lived at 743 Denman Street from 1914 to 1919 and at 1859 Robson Street from 1920 to 1931. The other executor was Alfred Robie Bissett (1863-1948), a master mariner who was a brother of James Douglas Bissett (1860-1945), who lived at 913 Denman Street in 1920.

The gross value of Lincoln’s estate was $33,000. The debts and liabilities were about $650. Sadie was entitled to the residue of the estate, after payment of the debts, liabilities and specific legacies.

 

Sadie’s Later Life

In 1925, Sadie was living at 2101 West 10th Avenue in Seattle, Washington. She also had an address at the Angelus Hotel in Vancouver.

On July 5, 1930, in Vancouver, Sadie married Arthur Frank Noel, who was a miner. He was born in Merrill, Wisconsin on February 15, 1869. His parents were Peter Noel and Amelia La Rochelle (sometimes given as “Russell.”

The marriage certificate described Arthur as a widower, but that appears to be incorrect. Arthur was married on December 24, 1899, in Kamloops, British Columbia. His bride was Delina Clara Litalien, who was born in Lillooet, British Columbia on June 17, 1881. Her parents were Joseph Litalien and Clara Castonguay. When Arthur died in Burnaby, British Columbia on April 18, 1946, Delia Clara Noel was the informant on Arthur’s death certificate. Arthur was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby, British Columbia. Delina died in Vancouver on October 15, 1960.

Sarah (Sadie) died in Seattle, Washington, on May 21, 1953.

“Rogers Popular Figure; Death Calls One of Best Known Local Shipmasters Has Always Been in Local Shipping,” Vancouver Daily World, November 16, 1920, page 13: “In the death of Captain Lincoln Rogers, the president of the Vancouver Dredging and Salvage Company, which occurred at his home, 1051 Beach avenue, last night as the result of a stroke, Vancouver loses one of its most popular and familiar figures in the marine world. A native son of this province, Captain Rogers, familiarly known among all his friends as “Link,” has been actively associated with shipping here since he was a lad of eighteen or so. He leaves to mourn his loss a widow, four sisters, two in New Westminster and two in the east, and his cousin, Captain James Rogers, of New Westminster. Born in Victoria In 1864, he was thus 56 years of age. When two years old his mother moved to New Westminster, where his father was engaged in the logging business, and there, in 1891, his uncle, William Rogers, built the City of Nanaimo, with which vessel the late Captain Rogers was intimately associated until 1906. Later the City of Nanaimo was renamed the Bowena. Captain Rogers always took a justifiable pride in his association with her. In 1906 he withdrew from active sea-faring life and became manager of the Burrard Steamship Company and the Lincoln Steamship Company. Five years later he was married in Seattle to Sarah Beaver, of Wisconsin. As president of the Vancouver Dredging and Salvage Company, he has been closely associated with another esteemed member of the marine profession, Captain A. R. Bissett. As one-time president of the now defunct Vancouver Ship-Masters’ Association, an organization which was responsible for many of the lights and other marine improvements upon this coast, the late Captain Rogers did much useful work for British Columbia of an unofficial nature.”
