Sally Barton Rogers

Other Name:
Sally Barton
Home Town:
Catskill, NY
Richard Rogers (1813)
Biographical Notes:
Sally Barton Rogers of Catskill, New York may have attended the Litchfield Female Academy around the year 1812, but no solid documentation exists. The only other information known about her life at this time is her marriage to Richard Rogers of Fishkill, New York in 1813.

help The Citation of Attendance provides primary source documentation of the student’s attendance at the Litchfield Female Academy and/or the Litchfield Law School. If a citation is absent, the student is thought to have attended but currently lacks primary source confirmation.

Records for the schools were sporadic, especially in the formative years of both institutions. If instructors kept comprehensive records for the Litchfield Female Academy or the Litchfield Law School, they do not survive. Researchers and staff have identified students through letters, diaries, family histories and genealogies, and town histories as well as catalogues of students printed in various years. Art and needlework have provided further identification of Female Academy Students, and Litchfield County Bar records document a number of Law School students. The history of both schools and the identification of the students who attended them owe credit to the early 20th century research and documentation efforts of Emily Noyes Vanderpoel and Samuel Fisher, and the late 20th century research and documentation efforts of Lynne Templeton Brickley and the Litchfield Historical Society staff.
Sally Barton is mentioned in John Pierce Brace's Journal in an entry dated April 28, 1814. He is at that time traveling to Hudson, New York and mentions seeing Sally Barton in Catskill. John Pierce Brace would have been at student at Williams College in 1812, not teaching in Litchfield. Barton may have attended the Female Academy and Brace befriended her while visiting his parents during holidays, but there is currently no a strong connection placing her as a student in Litchfield.
