The book, "Ancestors and Descendants of Luke Rogers and Sarah Wright Brown." Compiled by Ethel Brigham Leatherbee, this book was privately printed in Boston in 1907. It is absolutely filled with genealogical and personal information about Luke & Sarah's ancestors and their descendants. The time frame covered is from about 1625 to the writing of the book in 1907. Luke Rogers was born on August 4, 1792, the second son of Abraham Foster Rogers and Patty Faulkner Rogers. He married Sarah Wright Brown on March 11, 1816. Sarah was the fourth child of Ephraim Brown and Sibel Wright Brown. Please note: This is not a paper book, it is a scan of the original paper book into the digital Adobe PDF format, written on a CD-ROM. You read this book on your computer using the free Adobe Reader software. It is a digital version of a hard to find book. If you could find a copy of the 1907 printed book, it would be very expensive.
The book is not indexed, but it does contain a comprehensive pedigree chart for both Luke and Sarah - and the middle section of the book lists all of the people on the pedigree charts in alphabetical order. One section of the book lists genealogical data on Luke & Sarah's ancestors, a second section lists the data for their descendants (as of 1907). Unlike many digital (CD) genealogy books, I have taken great care to 'link' the names in the pedigree charts to the paragraphs in the book about the individual. This means that you can click on a name in the pedigree chart and go directly to the page where the individual is discussed. This makes it very easy to research these folks.

The book itself has about 75 pages. There are photographs of Luke Rogers, Sarah Wright Brown, and all of their children but one. The Adobe Reader software allows you to page through the book just as if it were a printed copy.
Some of the folks in this genealogy are pretty interesting, For example Abigail (Dane) Faulkner was found guilty of witchcraft! Massachusetts State archives have the following records (transcribed into this book): "The jury find Abigail Faulkner wife of Francis Faulkner of Andover, Guilty of ye felony of witchcraft. Committed on ye body of Martha Sprague also on ye body of Sarah Phelps. Sentence of death passed on Abigail Faulkner."
There are lots of interesting facts & stories like this in this book!
