c1896 Photograph of Raymon W. Rogers, possibly Raymond Weston Rogers (1880-1904); by the Cahoon studio of Harwich, Massachusetts

 c1896 cabinet photograph of a young man identified on the reverse as "Raymon W. Rogers, age 16 years".  The photograph was taken at the Cahoon studio of Harwich, Massachusetts.

His given name may have been Raymond, rather than Raymond.

He may have been the Raymond Weston Rogers born 16 July 1880 at Harwich, Massachusetts, the son of mariner Freeman H. Rogers and his wife Bethiah A. (Bearse) Rogers, both natives of Orleans, Massachusetts.  

Raymond went to Cuba to teach and died there in 1904, while principal of the high school at Mayaguez, according to his obituary, which appears on his FindaGrave memorial [which contains an incorrect birth year]. His body was returned to East Harwich, Massachusetts, for burial with family members there.
