aug 29, 1798 - Patrick Rogers arrives in Philly, within few months a tutor at UPenn

Description:

But about the time of the Irish E-ebellion, which broke out in May, 1798, he contributed to Dublin newspapers articles hostile to the government which, his friends believed, were likely to cause his arrest." ^

A kinsman, Alexander Eogers of Hill-head, having supplied the necessary means, he fled to Londonderry and sailed for America, arriving in Philadelphia, after a passage of eighty-four days, in August, 1798. At that time there were many Irish refugees in Philadel-phia. Mr. Eogers evidently made his way rapidly, for only a few months afterwards we find him appointed as a tutor in the University of Pennsylvania.
