Notes:  Agnes Jane Roger was circa 1869 in Fullarton Twp., Ontario.  A family source and her death certificate give a 13 Jun 1872 birthdate, but she was three years old for the 1871 Canada census, 12 for the 1881 Canada census, and 22 for the 1991 Canada census.  Her parents were George Roger and Isabella Pringle.  Her father George was a grain farmer, and the family lived in a place called Motherwell.  She had an older brother Robert, younger brothers George and William, and younger sisters Elizabeth (Lizzie) and Ada.
Agnes married Alexander B. Detwiller (Alex) on 14 Feb 1900 in the Avonbank Presbyterian Church, Motherwell, Ontario.  One of the official witnesses to the wedding was Lizzie Roger, her sister.  The local newspaper reported that the couple departed for North Dakota about 1 Mar 1900.

Agnes and Alex made their home in Tyrol Twp., Griggs, North Dakota.  The 1900 through 1930 U.S. and North Dakota census records report that Alex was a grain farmer.  Agnes was reported as a naturalized citizen in the 1920 U.S. census.  In the 1925 North Dakota census, Elizabeth Roger, her sister now age 40, was living with or visiting the couple.  Agnes and Alex did not have any children.  Agnes died 6 Feb 1938, in Griggs County, North Dakota.  Alex died 26 Apr 1954 in Vancouver, British Columbia.  Both are buried in the Cooperstown Cemetery, Cooperstown, North Dakota.
