D. Rodocker

[1870]        PAGE 61.
D. RODOCKER was the oldest established photographer in Cowley County, Kansas, and his headquarters were at Winfield, where he was known as a good, honest, businessman and a loyal and enterprising citizen.
Mr. Rodocker was born in Ashland County, Ohio, in 1840. He remained on his father’s farm until he attained the age of seventeen years, but the three seasons following were spent in working about a sawmill near Fort Wayne, Indiana. In 1863, he went to San Francisco, California. In 1865 he returned to his native state and in August of that year went to Champaign, Illinois, where he began to learn photography. He continued there with good success until 1870, when he moved to Winfield, Kansas, and became one of the earliest settlers in Cowley County, Kansas. The country, being new and thinly settled, Mr. Rodocker did not pursue his regular vocation, but like many other professional men, he accepted what ever work presented itself.
During the winter of 1870-71 he was employed at Bartlow’s sawmill, and in the spring he took up a quarter section of land, which he was obliged to abandon at a later period.
In 1874 he resumed the photograph business, in which he continued to the present time [1901]. In 1887 he sold out his business in Winfield and entered the photographic department of the United States government for which he took pictures until 1894. He then returned to Winfield, where he opened a gallery at No. 814 Main Street. He also opened galleries at Dexter and Cedarvale, Kansas. Mr. Rodocker was a photographer of rare ability, having had the advantage of many years of valuable experience, besides being well adapted to his profession. He did nothing but first class work, and guaranteed satisfaction.

                                                           The Masquerade.
The members of the Pleasant Hour Club have made the winter thus far very pleasant in a social way. Their hops have been well attended, and the utmost good feeling and harmony has prevailed. Their masquerade ball last Thursday evening was the happiest hit of the season. The floor was crowded with maskers and the raised platforms filled with spectators. At nine o’clock the “grand march” was called, and the mixture of grotesque, historical, mythological, and fairy figures was most attractive and amusing. Then, when the quadrilles were called, the effect of the clown dancing with a grave and sedate nun, and Romeo swinging a pop-corn girl, was, as one of the ladies expressed it, “just too cute.”
The following is the list of names of those in masque, together with a brief description of costume or character represented.
Mrs. D. Rodocker, Jockey.

A Complete Art Gallery. Amongst all the great and beneficent improvements in Winfield, our completed system of water works, gas works, our prospective street railway, and first-class buildings going up to accommodate our continually increasing business, none of these improvements reflect greater credit than the re-fitted and greatly enlarged Art Gallery of D. Rodocker. His parlors are all that taste and refinement could desire, and his increased facilities for business gives him great advantage over his former gallery. Mr. Rodocker recently went to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to attend the Photographers Association of America, of which Association his certificates shows him to be an honorable member. There he acquainted himself with all the recent improvements of the Art, and he is now in possession of all the facilities to insure work equal to the best done in the State. He has recently secured one of the best workmen in the west in the person of George Dresser, who, for four years, ran a first-class gallery in Independence, Kansas. Copying, enlarging, and painting, with all that pertains to the business are promptly attended to. We would call special attention to the enlarged crayon portraits of the late Rev. J. E. Platter and the Hon. Senator Hackney, now in the gallery for a few weeks. Our citizens will do well to investigate his work in all its departments before they go further and fare worse. It is a matter that interests parents and children, that they have each others’ likeness so true to nature to look upon when the spirit has gone to the God who gave it. O, how much comfort there is in a complete family group; we may secure it today, but tomorrow it is broken forever.
Winfield Courier, July 24, 1884.

The annual masquerade party of the Winfield Social Club has been the crowning social event of every winter for years past, and the one at the Opera House last Thursday evening was all that past successors could have spoken for it—in fact, many pronounce it superior to preceding ones in selectness and refinement of conduct. It was free from the promiscuous crowd and jam that usually characterize such gatherings, there being just maskers enough to fill the floor nicely and make dancing most enjoyable. The characters represented were varied and unique, elicited much admiration from the large number of spectators, and we regret our lack of space to mention each in detail. Following are the names of the maskers and the characters represented.
Mrs. D. Rodocker, Daily News.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, June 18, 1885.

Owing to lack of care in taking, it was found that the photograph of Mrs. Julia Ann White’s eye before burial was imperfect and incapable of proper development. Our officials were determined, if possible, to get a clue to the murderer, and yesterday afternoon, Sheriff McIntire, Dr. S. R. Marsh, and Photographer Rodocker went out to the graveyard, exhumed the body, took it from the coffin, stood it up against a board, reflected light on the eye, and with an extension lens got a perfect photograph. It is several inches in diameter, and is developing splendidly. Indications are strong that when fully developed it will reveal the perpetrator of the awful deed. It took some grit to go through this process of obtaining it, but our officials are abashed at nothing that seems in the line of duty. The body gave sickening evidence of decomposition. The photograph is taken on the established theory that the last person appearing before the vision in consciousness remains a perfect picture on the eye, and when the eye is photographed can be drawn out, as plainly as life, by the ophthalmoscope. The photograph will be sent east for enlargement and proper scientific treatment.

Clark County comes in for criminal notoriety with a vim. It has recently had two despicable and revolting murders. Like every new county, it has its “bad men,” though Ashland is a remarkably temperate, civil place for a border town. Last week Julius Muret was shot through the heart. He went with his wife and child from Pleasant Valley, this county, and took a claim near Ashland. Afterward Mrs. Lindley, mother of Mrs. Muret, and two sons came to Clark County. She took a claim near Muret that had not been occupied by the young man Clouch, who had taken it for three months. Old man Clouch had said his son was holding the claim till his daughter would be of age to take it. Muret and the Lindley boys were going out to dig a foundation for a shanty for their mother. Muret got there first and was spading, when old man Clouch and a young Kentuckian, Bill Churchill, came up. Muret had never seen either of them before. Without a word Churchill shot Muret through the heart. One of the Lindley’s arrived just in time to catch Muret as he fell, when Churchill fired another shot. It went through Muret’s shoulder and into Lindley’s arm. The murderer was arrested and placed in the bastille at Dodge City. Muret’s body was brought to this county for interment. Mr. D. Rodocker shows us a letter from Miss Rose Frederick, well known here, chronicling another terrible murder. Dr. Lafield, Ashland’s dentist, received $800 from the east a few days ago. That night, with it on his person, he was shot dead, and the money taken. The murder was for no other cause than robbery. Tobe Taylor, a drunken cowboy, was arrested for the crime, though there is no positive evidence against him. The same letter tells of a terrible storm that swept over that section the other day. Two storms met, one from the northwest and one from the northeast. Everything in their track was inundated and much property swept away. Dugouts by the dozen were filled with water and caved in, leaving the occupants homeless. And most of the wells, not yet being walled, caved in. It was very destructive and a hard blow on those trying to establish homes in the “wild west.”
Winfield Courier, Thursday, July 9, 1885.
Mr. W. J. Hodges came up from Ponca Tuesday, accompanied by seven Tonkawa Indians, who took back loads for him. The chief, Sam Houston, was along. They were intelligent, more than average in looks, and patterned rudely after the American style of dress. They are a band of two hundred who were removed, a few weeks ago, from Ft. Griffin, Texas, to the Ponca reservation, where Mr. Hodges is trader. Photographer Rodocker got their “phizzes,” after much importuning. They were afraid the camera would kick.

George Dresser, our photographer, leaves us today to take temporary charge of the Stevens gallery at Arkansas City. Mr. Dresser is an artist of eleven years experience and stands high in the profession. He is associated here with D. Rodocker. Good work is his motto. Arkansas City can rest assured of obtaining a first-class artist in Mr. Dresser.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, October 1, 1885.
RODOCKER’S ART GALLERY IN THE LEAD. Rodocker had a very fine display at the Fair, the pictures of some of our young ladies. The work was admired by all. Strangers stopped and gazed in admiration at those beautiful portraits and exclaimed, what fine work! I hardly thought Kansas could produce such fine work or such handsome young ladies. Call at Rodocker’s north Main, and examine this work. We challenge the state to produce such a fine collection of art.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, October 22, 1885.

ARKANSAS CITY REPUBLICAN. Geo. Dresser, the photographer, returns to Winfield after December 28, 1885. He goes there to take charge of D. Rodocker’s gallery.
Geo. Dresser takes over Rodocker gallery...
Winfield Courier, Thursday, January 7, 1886.
According to previous contract Geo. H. Dresser, the photographer, took possession of the Rodocker gallery January 1st. Mr. Dresser is no stranger in Winfield, having been associated with Mr. Rodocker for the past year and a half, all but the last few months, making a temporary stay at Arkansas City. The result of his labors while there can be seen at the gallery, in the shape of a fine exterior display of photos of some of Arkansas City’s prettiest faces, and at the same time give you an opportunity of judging the merits of his work. Mr. Dresser has had the advantage of all modern improvements, and an experience of over eleven years; also is a member of the Photographic Association of America, and is considered by the fraternity an artist of true merit. Mr. Dresser is making arrangements to make pictures of any size and style known to the art science of photography. You are cordially invited to call in and see his work and its merits, and a share of your patronage is respectfully solicited. Mr. Dresser expects to sustain the well known reputation of this gallery, and he is cheerfully recommended by Mr. Rodocker as very amply qualified.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, January 7, 1886.

George Dresser and family have moved up from Arkansas City. He will take possession of Rodocker’s gallery in a few days.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, January 7, 1886.
Geo. H. Dresser, photographic artist, removed his studio to Winfield today. He has established his reputation in this city as a first-class workman, and many of his patrons regret his removal. Mr. Dresser has done a good business during his stay here, but being under contract to take Rodocker’s gallery in Winfield, his change of base is a sort of legal necessity. Dresser is a useful citizen. A. C. Republican.

Inasmuch as there are a number of citizens in Walnut township, Cowley County, Kansas, living on land which has never been platted adjacent to the city of Winfield in said county, and said citizens have not petitioned to become citizens of said city of Winfield, and inasmuch as land not platted cannot be arbitrarily taken into the city limits, therefore be it resolved, that it is the place of the mayor and council of the city of Winfield that under the law only those citizens of Walnut township who are living on said lands who petitioned to become citizens of said city, whose names are as follows: A. J. Thompson, T. H. Soward, S. L. Gilbert, H. G. Fuller, D. Rodocker, and others, are citizens of the said city and those who did not petition the said city to become citizens thereof living on the said land are still as heretofore, residents of Walnut township.
State of Kansas, Cowley County, ss.
I hereby certify that at a meeting of the city council of the city of Winfield, Kansas, held January 25, 1886, the above resolution was passed by unanimous vote of the councilmen present.

Messrs. Gregg & Rice, the new firm of fruit men who have located in our city, have closed a contract with D. Rodocker, whereby they agree to plant 120 acres of Mr. Rodocker’s farm in Pleasant Valley township, in fruit trees, and to have it stocked in the course of three years. Gregg & Rice are to bear all the expenses, Mr. Rodocker to furnish the land, and as soon as the trees begin to bear, Gregg & Rice will start a canning establishment. They will also make a specialty of fruit for the market, and in connection will run a nursery. The profits are to be divided equally between the first and second parties. The land is a valuable place for this business, laying on the Frisco, and is well adapted for such purposes. It looks like a good thing for all parties interested.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, March 18, 1886.
D. Rodocker is out after several days indisposition.
