John Rogers of Newton, Massachusetts.

John Rogers was born in 1724 and died in Newton on October 19, 1815 at the age of 91. He is also listed as a blacksmith and reportable trained under a Joseph Ward. He maintained two shops. One in Newton and the other in Waltham. He had a number of business dealings with Clockmaker Benjamin Willard. A law suit file against Willard is recorded. The few signed John Rogers clocks we have owned and sold over the years seem to resemble the style of the latter Massachusetts Makers and their competitors. Examples of brass composite dials, an engraved brass dial and painted dial clocks are known.
