Andrew Locy Rogers (1854-1943) was a Utah native who helped establish a Latter-day Saint community in Northern Arizona.
Andrew Locy Rogers was born on December 19th, 1854 in Farmington, Utah, to Thomas Edward Rogers and Aurelia Read Spencer Rogers. Answering the call of President Brigham Young in 1876 for volunteers to help establish a Latter-day Saint community in Northern Arizona, Locy relocated immediately. On August 27th, 1879 he married Clara Maria Gleason in Salt Lake City. The couple soon returned to Arizona where they raised a family of ten children. Known as “Uncle Locy” or “Honest Locy” in his hometown of Snowflake, Arizona, Andrew Rogers also served two missions, one in Arizona as a young man and another to Ireland and Scotland when he was in his mid-fifties. His wife Clara died in 1932. Five years later, in 1937, he married Florence Evelyn Thomas Blaine. Andrew Rogers died November 20, 1943 in St. Johns, Arizona.
