Rogers, James Blake "Jim"  84, of Bakersfield, CA died Friday at his home. He was the third child of Betty and Will Rogers. He was the last surviving child of the Rogers'. He will be interred in the family tomb on the Will Rogers museum grounds in Claremore, OK. He is survived by his second wife, Judith BRAUN, and two sons and a daughter.

Last surviving son of Will Rogers succumbs to cancer 4/29/00
CLAREMORE (AP) -- Jim Rogers, the last surviving son of cowboy humorist Will Rogers, died Friday after a bout with cancer, officials with the Will Rogers Memorial said.
Jim Rogers, 84, served as the family's representative on the official Will Rogers Memorial Commission of Oklahoma. He died at his home in Bakersfield, Calif.
"Jim Rogers was inspirational, kind, humorous and articulate just like his father," said Michelle Lafebvre-Carter, director of the Will Rogers Memorial Commission of Oklahoma.
"Jim Rogers referred to Will Rogers affectionately as `Dad' in family matters and `WR' in reference to the icon."
Born July 25, 1915, in New York City, James Blake Rogers appeared in three of Will Rogers' feature films. He was a cinema cowboy in three Hopalong Cassidy westerns, made Army training films with Rod Cameron, and co-starred with Noah Beery Jr. in "Dudes are Pretty People," "Calaboose," and "Prairie Chicken," all produced by Hal Roach Jr.
In the 1940s, Jim Rogers was editor- publisher of The Beverly Hills Citizen. He joined the Marine Corps in the latter period of World War II as a writer- correspondent.
He was married for nearly 50 years to Astrea Kemmler, who died in 1987. He married Judith Braun in 1995. The couple ran a riding stable in Bakersfield.
In addition to Judith Braun, Rogers is survived by sons James Rogers of Nashville, Tenn., and Charles Edward Rogers of Cave Creek, Ariz., and daughter, Astrea Elizabeth Rogers, of Chowchilla, Calif.
Rogers was the third child of Will and Betty Rogers. His father died in a plane crash near Point Barrow, Alaska, in 1935, and his mother died nine years later.
Jim Rogers' brother, Will Rogers Jr. died in 1993; his sister, Mary, died in 1989 and his brother, Fred, died in 1920.
Jim Rogers will be interred in the family tomb on the Will Rogers museum grounds in Claremore.

Obituary
__________
Dal Walker was born in Oowala, Indian Territory, September 15th 1883 and departed this life June 8 1955 in Claremore, Okla. He was the son of Newton and Mary Walker and with them came to Oologah when he was a small boy and spent the remainder of his life in this community.

On January 10, 1906 he was united in marrige to Eva Tucker in the home
of Mr. and Mrs. John Arnold.
He was a farmerand rancher and maintained a large ranch and home near
Oologah until January 1950 when he sold his property and retired from actual ranch work and moved to town where he lived until his death.
Dal Walker will never be just a name to the community he has left. He was a source of help and inspiration to scores of young people and friend and advisor to older ones. Hislive was a lesson of brotherly love to all who knew him and his heart, his home and his hands were always open and ready to help thos who needed im. His countless acts of kindness and generosity to young peole who were endeavoring to obtain an education will stand forever as a living monument to his memory. He himself was a pupil at the first school established in Oologah. No bigger hearted men lived than the pioneer cowmen and Dal Walker lived up to every tradition made by that early day group in the Indian Territory. He lived a life of belief in God and faith in his fellow man. He is survived by his wife, Eva, scores of relatives and hundreds of friends. May the realization of a life well lived, a life of unselfish devotion to both loved ones and comfort to those he has left. His memory will be forever cherished as "One who lived in the house by the side of the road and was a friend to man".
Dedicated by Mrs. Herb McSpadden.
