Cecil Rodgers, known as “Buck,” was my mother, Lucille’s, oldest brother. He left home at a young age and headed west. He ended up in Arizona and was a working cowboy on cattle and horse ranches. He met his wife, Betty, a full blooded Navajo Indian and they opened Trading Posts in Cameron, Vermillion Cliffs and Antelope Hills, known throughout Arizona as Buck Rodgers Trading Post. My aunt was adopted as a child by the Wetherills, who were instrumental in helping the Navajo’s and educating the Navajo children on the Navajo reservation. Her father John discovered the Rainbow Bridge around 1919.

How to Make Cecil "Buck" Rodgers Calves Liver and Onions
