Anne (Coleman) Rogers (1858-1934)
Mrs Anne Caroline (Coleman) Rogers
She was just seven years old when she and her brother, Robert, inherited a controlling interest in one of the richest iron-producing businesses in America, established in 1798 by their great-grandfather (Robert Coleman) at Cornwall, Pennsylvania. In 1889, Anne and her brother were worth $30 million and said to have made $1,000 a day purely on interest.
