New for 2020

Three Daniel Hogans are now Candidates to be son of Thomas Hogan “I” (ca1716)

Found Under Thomas Hogan “I” (ca1716 to 1779)


Part 1 - This Chapter has the following Hogans


John Hogan of 1710 Stafford County, Virginia

William Hogan (ca1690 to 1757) + Margaret _  (Will 1767);

Daniel Hogan (ca1720) + Ann

John Hogan (ca1720 to 1778) + Mary Ann Catlett

Thomas Hogan (ca1716 – 1779 will)       


Results in this review are mostly based on records found in these counties.  This is written for you - the reader to review the details and decide what happened with these Hogans.   Even so, there are still family puzzles needing your help to resolve.    Marriages are a major problem and sometimes we are left with almost no information (or no information) about a wife.  Final years for John Hogan “I” (ca1720) are still a mystery and need more work.   In later years, records spelled some of these Hogans as “Hogain.”   When there is a lack of good information to estimate a birth or death date, “ca”= circa is placed before the date, indicating an unstable date estimate.

Part 2 - Early Hogans in Colonial Fauquier and Prince William Counties, Virginia


(A). John Hogan of Stafford County, Virginia – Earliest Hogan in area (maybe)


This John Hogan is recorded in 1710 and 1711 with 740 acres.  Stafford County Courthouse burned and many records were lost.  Speculation exists that he might be the father of William Hogan (ca1695 – 1754), John Hogan (1711 or ca1720), and maybe Thomas Hogan (~1716-1779).  But…this is only speculation.  More research is needed.  


(I). William Hogan (ca1695 to 1754) and wife Margaret __ (died 1767, will)

Born ca1695, difficult to estimate – could be earlier

Parents – not known, but suspect an earlier generation in America. 

Immigration date – not known

Family records exist - zero.  His family requires reconstruction.

War Records – died before French-Indian Wars of 1755+

Married Margaret __, date unknown who has a 1767 will.   Current theory is their marriage was about 1720.

Occupation: Tobacco grower.

Earliest Record – 1724 Tobacco Tender – Stafford County, Virginia:  William Hogin, 1 tithable, 4018 plants. 

Will - 1754 September 23:  Prince William County, Virginia Will of William Hogan, reported for William Hogan with Margaret Hogan Executrix, son Daniel for proof, as identified in Order Book, page 139.  Actual will not yet found and could be lost.


Children of William Hogan and Margaret include (1) – (5):


(1). Charles Hogan, (ca1737 Fauquier County, Va.) per will; possibly last child.  Has records from 1759 to 1767 and then disappears from view.

(2). Mary Hogan, per mother’s 1767 will, married __ Banester

(3). (probably) James Hogan who was a bondsman during William Hogan “I” 1754 Estate Administration.  He appears only from 1757 to 1761.

(4). Daniel Hogan (ca1720) is listed as a son in the 1754 Estate Administration.    Wife was Ann __.  Earliest record is 1742 Land Grant and last in 1763.  He appears to be the Daniel Hogan who makes records in these two counties.  Mixes with other brothers.  Children, if any, not identified.

(5). William Hogan “II” (ca1725/30).  Wife was possibly Elizabeth __ and owned land next to his brother Daniel.  First record 1749 is “William Hogan, Jr”.  Some William Hogan records show him mixing with Charles, James, and Daniel Hogan.  This helps separate him from a later William Hogan, the son of Thomas Hogan.   In later years, this is less clear.   Last record is possibly in 1786.  In his 1775 Fauquier County tax, his second male in his tithe is John Hogain, who should be his son.  Based on this entry, one son is:

(i). John Hogan (ca1754) is noted in 1775 and 1783 tax records.  In 1781, this most likely the John Hogan who purchased 400 acres in 1781 Berkeley County, Virginia (now West Va.) on the head waters of the Lick Branch of Sleepy Creek.  His 1810 US Census of Berkeley County, shows 1 male 10-15, 3 females 0-9, 1 female 16-25, 1 male 45+.  Next door to him is Martin Hogan, 1 male 0-9, 1 female 10-15, 1 female 10-15, 1 male 26-44.  John Hogan left for Logan County, Kentucky in 1810.    This John Hogan has a son William Hogan who lived near him in Logan County.   Martin Hogan was still in Berkeley County in 1813 but soon left for Logan County.


(II). John Hogan “I” (ca1720 to >1778) of Prince William County 

Born: Beware of a tobacco plant record in 1724 Stafford County listing a” John Hogins,” age 13 serving with William Farrow, head of household.  May or may not be our subject.   Birth year estimate of ca1720 seems to fit better, but this could change with better information.

Married Mary Ann or Maryann Catlett, daughter of John Catlett whose 1778 will mentions Maryann Hogan and John Hogan as an executor.

Parents not identified.

Family records: zero

War Records – So far, nothing; French-Indian War from 1755-1759 should be checked.


Earliest Record – 1745 Sexton in Church, followed in 1747 with 500 acres at Broad Run in 1747 Prince William County, Virginia.  After this, his trail becomes faint and may be in Prince William County where fewer records survived.

Migration away from area – unknown

Will or estate record: Does not appear to be the 1775 Estate Administration record which is very incomplete.  This may be a reference to a different John Hogan’s estate administration in 1770.  This last John Hogan married Mary Francis Carrell/Carroll.   John Catlett ‘s 1778 will indicates our subject John Hogan was still alive.

Children’s names are likely:  

(i). John Hogan who married Molly Mauzy in 1780. Earliest record 1778 and last record 1797 in Fauquier County.  Served as a 2nd Lieutenant for Fauquier Militia in the American Revolution during 1780.

(ii). Rawleigh Hogan who married Peggy Conway in 1786.  Earliest record 1778 and served in the American Revolution under Capt. Benjamin Harrison.

(iii). Bathsheba Hogan (1764 – 1850+ White Co. IL) who married John Nelson in 1780.  Nelson was in the same military unit as Rawley Hogan under Capt. Benjamin Nelson.

(iv). Barbara Hogan who married in 1786 Fauquier County to Samuel Stephenson.


(III). Thomas Hogan “I” (ca1716 to 1779 will) + wife – not known, of Prince William and Fauquier Counties, Virginia. 

Born ca1716 

Parents: Not known

Family records: not specifically identified


War Records- Undetermined.

Married, name unknown and not found in county records; maiden name reported by others to be Elizabeth Griffin and appears incorrect.


Earliest Record – 1741 Prince William County Land Grant

Will 1779 March 1 – Prince William County, Virginia:  Will of Thomas Hogan: Names sons - Thomas Hogan, William Hogan, Daniel Hogan, grandson – Thomas Hogan, Daughters Mary Hogan, Elizabeth Hogan, Sarah Hogan and Charlotte Hogan.  Notice that his will does not name a son – “John Hogan.” 

Genealogy: A Weekly Journal of American Ancestry, Volume 4, Number 9, Oct. 1914, page 81; reported to be WB G/39.  Actual will is in Will Book G/39 with Inventory in Inventory Book G/57, but original not seen.


Children of Thomas Hogan “I” and Elizabeth per will:


(1). Thomas Hogan “II” (ca1745 to ~1804) married Judith __ who is only noted once in a 1796 deed.  This is their last Fauquier County record when he and wife Judith sold their land.  1792 Fauquier tax records indicate he has a son – Thomas Hogan, Jr. or “III”.   In 1796, Thomas Hogan has a deed in Hampshire County, Virginia (now W. Va.) suggesting a migration path and he owned a mill.    In 1800 Hampshire Co. Personal Tax, there is Thomas Hogan Senior, Thomas Hogan, William Hogan, and Elizabeth Hogan.  By 1810, there is only the younger Thomas Hogan “III,” 1 male + 1 female 26-44 and who has two daughters.   Elizabeth Hogan, whose age and generation is unclear in these records, should not be forgotten.  Children of Thomas Hogan “II” and his wife Judith, (i), (ii):


(i) Thomas Hogan “III” (ca1774 to 1832 Hampshire Co., Va., will).   Has two daughters, Susanna Hogan and Mary Hogan.  If he is age 21 in his 1792 tax, his birth date would be estimated to be 1771.


(ii). William Hogan (ca1779).  Appears only in 1800 and 1801 tax records in Hampshire County, Va. (W. Va) then moves on.  The two records for free males 21+ suggest he is very young, and if so, 1800 – 21 = 1779 for a birth date.   Future findings could change this.


 (2). William Hogan (ca1745/50) who is son of Thomas Hogan “I:” Earliest records in these two counties belong to William Hogan, Jr. son of William Hogan.  Unable to separate the two in later years at this time, but probably this William Hogan did not make records in Fauquier and Prince William Counties.  Unable to track at this time.  Further review is needed.


(3). Daniel Hogan.  There are three possibilities – (a-1) to (a-3):


(a-1). Daniel Hogan (29 July 1753 to 19 January 1787 Orange County, North Carolina) married Sarah Lloyd.  The Lloyd book* lists Daniel Hogan + Sarah Lloyd, but does not specifically state Daniel’s origins or relationship to Col. John Hogan.  Daniel and Col. John may or may not be brothers.  Daniel and Sarah Lloyd Hogan have sons - (i) & (ii):


(i) Thomas Lloyd Hogan, Senior (5 August 1785 to 4 July 1858 Orange Co. NC) + wife Elizabeth Freeland (8 August 1790 to 14 September 1852 and both are buried at Thomas Hogan Cemetery, Orange County, North Carolina.  Notice his birth date conflicts with the next son. 

(ii) Daniel Hogan “II” (4 January 1786 to 5 July 1849 Orange County, NC per

* Thomas Lloyd of Brunswick County, Virginia and Orange County, North Carolina,” by Betty Scanlan Collins and Gerald Edward Collins, found online at


(a-2).  Daniel Hogan (ca1745 to 1801+) of St. Paul Parish, Ga. and Warren County, Georgia:  Birth date estimation is in question.  If he was age 25-35 when he received his 1774 English land grant, then a rough estimate might be ca1739—1749.   For the moment, let’s use ca1745.    Wife’s name likely was Tabitha, who was the mother of William Hogan (1786 to 1856) of Washington County, Louisiana.  Other children are more problematic and include John Hogan who married 1802 in Warren Co. Ga.

Details from a future Daniel & William Hogan of Georgia chapter.


(a-3). Daniel Hogan (ca1755 to 1796) of Camden County, Georgia participated in the failed 1795 Spanish East Florida Rebellion and died in a 1796 Spanish prison.  Known to have a wife and at least two children, names not known.   Also, living in both areas was a Reuben Hogan who is suspected to be a brother.  Reuben has two known sons – John Reuben Hogan and Charles Hogan, per Camden County deed.

Details from a HoganDanielWmGa.doc chapter,, not yet online.


(4). Mary Hogan

(5). Elizabeth Hogan

(6). Sarah Hogan

(7). Charlotte Hogan

(8). A grandson named Thomas Hogan

(~9). Other children, claimed to belong, but not in will – A discussion follows on whether they belong:


Some genealogy websites have linked these Fauquier/Prince William County Hogans to the following Col. John Hogan.  They report his father to be Thomas Hogan (1716 to 1779) and wife Elizabeth Griffin.      


Col. John Hogan (~1740 to ~1810) married Mary Lloyd, daughter of Thomas Lloyd (~1710-1792).   Settled in Orange County, North Carolina by 1770 or 1772.     He is not in the Prince William County will of Thomas Hogan.  This may or may not be important, but he does have strong family naming pattern for his first three sons – Thomas Hogan (~1771), John Hogan (~1773), and William Hogan (1774).   The name given to son Thomas Hogan is likely from his father-in-law - Thomas Lloyd, unless both parents were named “Thomas.”  A recent book details their history: “Hogan Genealogy: The Descendants of Col. John Hogan and Mary Lloyd Hogan of Orange County, North Carolina and Montgomery County, Tennessee,” by Cleo G. Hogan and C. E. Hogan, 1998.   This researcher has not found a copy and believes the book unavailable (12/2019).  However, Cleo G. Hogan gives a summary in “Montgomery County, Tennessee Book 2000” on page 214 which can be found on Google Books.   This account does not mention Col. John Hogan’s origins.   


              From the book “Thomas Lloyd of Brunswick County, Virginia and Orange County, North Carolina,” (page 27): Col. John Hogan mentioned he had two brothers on the Orange Co. NC debtor list: 1 - Zachariah Hogan who moved to and died in Anson County, North Carolina.  2 – Isaiah Hogan on a July 1777 debtor list, and who died in 1781.  Isaiah’s widow remarried and she and his son may have moved to Georgia.   Louisa County, Virginia records an Isaiah or Isiah Hogan in its Chancery Court in 1797, who cannot be the same person.     


Given these details, this conflicts with Prince William County’s Thomas Hogan “I” being the father.  Thomas “I” did not have sons named Zachariah and Isaiah Hogan. Take-away from this…Col. John Hogan does not belong here and our subject Thomas Hogan’s wife is not Elizabeth Griffin. 


Reconstruction details for another John Hogan (~1740 to 1770)

Appears to fit with Thomas Hogan “I” – as grandson Thomas Hogan in 1779 Will

And unnamed son who died before Thomas Hogan’s 1779 Will


(1). John Hogan (~1740 to 1770 Fauquier Co., Va.), who married Mary France Carroll/Carrell.

Birth date - not known; estimated roughly ca1740 if matched somewhat with wife. 

Parents unknown, but could relate to Thomas Hogan “I,” since they named their son Thomas Hogan.  

Married about 1766 to Mary Frances Carroll or Carrell (~1747 to 1836)

Death before 20 June 1770.  His estate administration is important evidence that they were an actual family. 


Earliest County Record – none found

Last County Record – Estate administration 20 June 1770.

Children – two are reported, but there seems to be only one - Thomas Hogan (estimated born ~1767) and cannot pick up his trail, but his widow mother remarried and probably left the area.     


1837 March 6 – Wilkes County, Georgia: Mary Owens (Mary Frances Carroll Hogan Owens) is reported born 1747, and had a will written 24 October 1836, and entered 6 March 1837 Wilkes County, Georgia.    She lived to the age 90 and is reported to have married 1st to John Hogan who lived in Fauquier County and reportedly had two children, one which was named Thomas Hogan.  She married 2nd to __ Owens and had six children by the second.”   


Mary Frances Carrell/Carroll was the daughter of Demse (Demsey) and Frances Carrell/Carroll.   “Demise Carrell died in Loudoun County, where his undated will was proved 13 May 1776, naming his wife “Rebekah” and twelve children, but not his eldest son, Daniel who may have predeceased him.  Executors were his wife and son-in-law Silvester Welch, and bequests included his plantation, horse, money, and slaves.”*    In his will, daughter Mary is named “Mary Owens” and Demise’s will names her son to be “Thomas Hogan.”
