B. F. SIKES

Rogers City (Rogers) Cemetery
Benton County,
Arkansas

B.F.
Sep 22 1825 - Mar 30 1908

B.F. Sikes, son of pioneer settler Robert Sikes, owned what would be the original town site of Rogers. Rogers was founded as a stop on the St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad. In 1880 the Frisco established a route through the eastern part of Benton County, bypassing the county seat of Bentonville. B. F Sikes granted the right-of-way for the railroad tracks, donated a site for the depot, platted a town, and began to sell lots. Incorporated in 1881 and named for railroad vice president Captain C.W. Rogers, the city of Rogers is located in Benton County southeast of Bentonville.
