Star Valley - Former Rogers Farmhouse

My grandparents, Elmer and Olla Rogers, were farmers. This was the house on their farm, in eastern Crawford County, Wisconsin. I remember being at this farmhouse when I was very young, probably in the early 1940s.

 

My grandparents retired from farming around 1941 and moved to Prairie du Chien. They rented the farm to T. J. (Punk) and Pearl Swiggum. Punk had been their hired man. His wife Pearl was my grandmother's niece.

 

The farmhouse burned down around 2000.
