Fact #1: 1900 Leon Co. Census shows Virginia Page Rodgers had 7 children by her marriage to Joseph W. Rodgers. Only six are accounted for in the family bible.

  58 iii. Otis Iscar RODGERS, born 10 Feb 1889 in TX; died May 1963 in New York.
     Notes for Otis Iscar RODGERS:
     He changed his middle name from Iscar to Oscar. Otis served in WWI. He had a cleft palate which was fixed when he entered the military. He drew a war bonus from the Army. After the war, he became a hobo. He started a hobo newspaper. He got an old typewriter and began publishing the hobo news in a stable that he owned. He married in New York. He is probably buried in Long Island at the Central Islip Cemetery.
Mother went to New York to get an affidavit for her passport from Uncle Oscar. He told her to meet him at 90 Church Street at 8 A.M. which is right across the street from the World Trade Center (which wasn't there at the time). She went with her father-in-law, August Blome. He showed up with an old wrinkled suit as usual. They hadn't seen each other for years but when he walked up it was as though they hadn't been apart. They knew each other instantly. He said "Let's go up to my lawyers office. It's in this building." They went upstairs and he proceeded to go into the lawyer's office. He went right behind the desk and began to look through the "IN" box. He asked the secretary if he had any mail and she said no. They got the affidavit and went to get the passport. When they were out on the street walking, everyone that passed by would say, "Hi, Mr. Rodgers." It was as though everyone knew Otis Rodgers.
Otis called himself the "Boomer Poet".
The following is part of one of his poems that mother remembers. "When Lindy flew, how well he knew he reached his destination. That is why he did not rely upon determination."
He said he got shanghaied on a ship to China. They did that to hobos or drunks back then. They would need a hand on the ship and they would find some guy passed out. They would pick him up and put him on the ship. When the guy woke up, he would find himself out to sea on a ship bound for who knows where.
One Christmas, Otis came to Leety's house all dressed up like Santa Claus. Reni was over at Leety's house with all of her children and Leety already had a house full of children. Uncle Otis produced a bag full of gifts and gave them out to Leety's kids. Reni's kids were dying to play with Leety's children's gifts. If they even looked at one of the toy's, Otis would tell them they were for Leety's kids. Reni was the jealous type and got angry. At the end of the evening, Reni went home with her children only to find that Otis had already visited her house and left toys for her children all over the house.

He was a Mason. He owed a year's dues so he didn't get a full masonic funeral. It was only like three dollars but that was in 1937 so it was quite a bit of money. Lillian Colwell, his daughter, who was five at the time does remember men throwing sprigs of greenery into the grave which was part of the ritual. He wasn't buried with apron.
On his WWI Draft Registration card he is described as being tall and slender with light blue eyes and dark brown hair. It also states that he had lost a finger.

     Notes for Owen Joseph ARKISON II:
     He was in the Merchant Marines. He started sailing when he was 17 years old. He was in China when the Japenese bombed Pearl Harbor and he came home through the Panama Canal. He was on a ship with both navy and merchant marines. His ship was blown out of the water in the Gulf of Mexico by a German submarine torpedo. The submarine surfaced and the German captain came out. He spoke perfect English and told the remaining crew where the lifeboats were and that they would be rescued in the morning. The next morning they were indeed found by the Americans. However, none of them had any papers so the Americans put them in jail because they didn't know which side they were on. The state department verified the identities of the navy sailors immediately. However, it took a while longer for the merchant marines to be released.
In 1942, a hurricane was coming in. The government covered it up because they were worried about the enemy doing damage in the Houston Ship Channel. It hit Galveston and took everyone by total surprise. The government covered up a lot of things.
