Rogers County was formed January 26, 1907 from the Cherokee Nation and was named for Clement Vann Rogers. It might have been Cooweescoowee County instead. Some said the name was too long and no one could pronounce it, so the county should be named John Ross County after the Cherokee Chief whose Indian name was Cooweescoowee. Citizens of the area began circulating a petition asking that the county be named for "Uncle Clem" because of his long-time contributions to local and tribal affairs. According to the Inola Register, Jan. 25, 1907, Clem Rogers "did himself proud" in accepting the honor conferred upon him by the naming of the county in his honor, Clem Rogers is the father of the well renowned Will Rogers.
