Part 1 - This Chapter Has the Following Hogans

 

(A). Hugh Hogan is noted in 1719-1742, first in a New Kent County, Virginia grant record, next in Hanover County, Virginia merchant and land grant records.  Hanover County and New Kent Courthouse records cannot help us because they have been lost.   He has a wife and son Zachariah Hogan.   There is not enough information to determine how he belongs to the Hogans who follow. 

 

(B). William Hogan “I” (ca1705/10 to 1794 Louisa Co., Va.) + Mary Mills.  Children are:

(I). James Hogan (~1752 to 1800+) + Mary Peers.  Children names not identified.

(II). William Hogan “II” (~1751 to ~1776 Am. Revolution).  No heirs.

(III). Elizabeth Hogan

(IV). Francis Hogan

(V). Ann Hogan + John Mallory

 

(C) John Hogan “I” (ca1715/20 to ca1790/not known) + Judith __.  Children are:

(I). Zachariah Hogan (1753 to 1787 will) + wife, possible daughter of John Power.  Children:

(1). Hugh Hogan, (2) John Hogan, (3) Molly Hogan, (4) Susanna Hogan

(2). Daniel Hogan, noted on a tax in 1771 and in 1794.   Cannot trace.

(3 - Possibly) Isaiah Hogan, noted only once in 1794.  Cannot track.

(4). William Hogan, possibly noted in 1784 with wife Susannah Williams.  Possibly is widow in 1791 Madison Co. Ky. tax record.

(5). John Hogan “II.” (ca1745 – 1798 Garrard Co. Kentucky). Evidence indicates he married Elizabeth Penax.  Children are:

(i). Lewis Hogan, (ii) Edmund Hogan, (iii) Zachariah Hogan (1783) + Delilah Marksberry, (iv). Sarah Hogan, (v) John Hogan, (vi) William Hogan – three possible candidates – (a) Captain William Hogan who died in the Civil War, (b) William R. Hogan (~1780 – 1839) or (c) William B. Hogan (1785/95 – 1835) (vii) Elizabeth Hogan, (viii) Elihu Hogan (!1788 to 1850+) + Isabella Roety

   

(D). John Hogan (ca1745-<1806 Va.) + Eleanor Cootes (1758 to 1847 Harrison Co. Indiana):  Children are: (i) John Hogan (1786 to 1852) + Polly Martin, (ii) Rebekah Hogan (1781), (iii) Patsy Hogan + John King, (iv) Sally Hogan + Stephan Cootes, (v) possibly - William Hogan.  Unknown relationship to the above Hogans.  Details near end of review.

 

(E). Brief comments about Phillip Hogan in 1701 & 1736-1755 Hanover County, and a Prosser Hogan in 1756.  Details in a separate review for Prosser Hogan (~1761-1831).    Included is a David Hogan of Hanover County, who died in the American Revolution, and who possibly belongs with this line.   His widow Mary Hogan claimed a pension in 1786.  Details will be found in Prosser Hogan review.

 

Part 2 - Summary of Two Early Hogans in Louisa, Goochland, Hanover Counties, Virginia

 

William Hogan “I” (~1705/10 to 1794)

Born:  Pension record estimated his age to be 76 in the year 1786.   

Immigration - Imported to America in 1719 as an indentured servant, age not given.  

Brother needs proof, but appears to be John Hogan (ca1720 to 1789 or date unknown).  In 1761, William Hogan sold John Hogan land.

Parents: not determined 

Relative - Hugh Hogan?   No information found. Relationship could be anything.

Married about 1742 to Mary Mills, daughter of Charles Mills (died 1764) and wife Ann.

American Revolution: Enlisted April 1779 for 1 ½ years as a Private in the Virginia Lines commanded by Col. Buford.  Believe this was Col. Abraham Buford who in 1779 commanded the 3rd Virginia Detachment (Regiment).   Hogan was disabled in the fighting and given a pensioner’s certificate of allowance by Virginia.

Occupation: Merchant and planter.

Children: 1 - James Hogan (birth ~1752); 2 - William Hogan “II” (~1751- ~1776); 3 - Elizabeth Hogan, 4 - Francis Hogan, 5 – Ann Hogan who married William Mallory - son of John Mallory

Died 1794 Louisa County, Virginia

Mary Mills (1720’s to 1796+), wife of William Hogan “I”
Born ca1720, but could change with better information

Parents were Charles and Ann Mills

Grandparents were Nicholas Mills and Ann Clopton.  Clopton name will appear again.

Sister – Elizabeth Mills married James Burnley

Death – last known record 1796

 

John Hogan “I” (ca1715/20 to 1789 or date unknown)

Born ca1715/20, with little info to estimate a birth date

Immigration date not known

Parents – not determined.

Relative - Hugh Hogan.  No information found.  Could be any relationship.

Married before 1752 to Judith __ (ca1730’s and still living 1800 somewhere outside of Virginia).

American Revolution: Likely too old to be drafted.

Occupation: not known but possibly a tradesman such as black-smith, joiner carpenter, etc. He moved around quite a bit suggesting farming might not be his main occupation.

Children: 1 - Zachariah Hogan (~1753), 2 – John Hogan “II” (~1745) who married Elizabeth Penax on 3 December 1781 Louisa County – see details below, 3 - Daniel Hogan who was a witness in Judith’s Chancery Court records, 4 – Possibly Isiah Hogan who was Judith’s security in Chancery Court. 5 - probably William Hogan.  Details follow under children of John Hogan “I.”   

Died - date unknown, maybe 1789; Problem - uncertain if and when and where their son John Jr. takes over tax records.  John “I” could have died earlier or even moved away.  Records, so far, do not help.

Note: “ca” with a date refers to a roughly estimated date that could easily change with better information.   Dates such as ~1750 have a better basis but still an estimate.

 

Problems with this research: This is a reconstruction of Hogan family lines without the help of family records (none found).  Reviewing all existing records is not possible.   Hogans are grouped together here in order to sort them out, but adds confusion when reading.   Most of these reconstructions are based on evidence found in these counties.  If anyone can help this researcher improve details, please do.   Consider this a work in progress and this is written for you, the reader who is interested in Hogan family history.

 

Part 3 - Overview for Hanover County, Virginia Courthouse Records

 

Note that Louisa County was established 1742 from Hanover County, Virginia and has lost its 1810 US Census.   Hanover was established 1720 from New Kent County whose court house burned down several times.  Hanover records were lost except for what was stored at the Post Office.   Binns Genealogy has yearly tax records after the American Revolution.   Familysearch.org’s online copy of Hanover County taxpayers - Saint Paul’s Parish 1782-1815 shows no Hogans, suggesting Hogans didn’t live in that section of the county.  The 1810 US Census of Hanover County indicates no Hogans, but does have a number of Mallorys (and many more by 1850).  

 

Part 4 – Details for Hugh Hogan (died about 1743/44) of Hanover County, Virginia

 

So little is known about Hugh Hogan that additional records need to found.  There is no clue to his birth date and the name of his wife.   Merchant records indicate he had at least one son named Zachariah Hogan.  Clues that Hugh Hogan might be closely related to our Hogan subjects include (a) John Hogan “I” who named one son Zachariah.  This Zach then named one son “Hugh Hogan,” (b) had lands in the same general location, (c) merchant books indirectly suggest (do not prove) William Hogan assisted widow Hogan with Hugh’s estate.   Relationship to William Hogan “I” and John Hogan “I’ could be either an uncle or something else but this researcher (J. Murphy) cannot be more specific.            

 

1719 February 20 – Virginia Land Grant – New Kent County: To Thomas Jones, 3275 acres in the fork of Pamunkey River, between the Little and Newfound River, beginning on the south side of Little River a little above Hugh Hogan’s Plantation.   

Library of Virginia – Virginia Colonial Land Office, image 1719-0220

 

               This description is the best we have to locate Hugh Hogan’s lands.  The Thomas Jones’ land appears to be in today’s northeastern Hanover County.  It is west of the North Anna River and the Hanover/Caroline County border.  

 

1719 February 20 – New Kent County, Virginia: Thomas Jones of the City of Williamsburg, 3273 acres of new land in New Kent County in the fork of Pamunkey River, the Little & New Found Rivers, on south side the Little River., a little above Hugh Hogan’s plantation, adjacent King’s land, Charles Fleming, Thomas Nelson and Thomas Jones.  Importation of 66 persons: (including) Wm. Hogan.

Cavaliers and Pioneers, Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents by Nell Marion Nugent, Volume 3, 2004, page 220.

 

               “Imported” means headrights.  For every person Jones imported/paid to bring to the colonies, he received 50 acres of land as “headrights.”  In exchange, William Hogan would be contracted as an indentured servant for a period of time.   This might be for seven years.   Question becomes – where is John Hogan in all this and how did he get to America?  In 1820, Hanover County was established from New Kent.

 

1723 September 5 – Virginia Land Grant:  To Hugh Hogan of Hanover County, 400 acres in same county on the Southside of Little River, beginning at a mouth of a branch….   

Library of Virginia – Virginia Colonial Land Office, image 1723-0905

 

1732 April 11 – Virginia Land Grant:  To Hugh Hogan of Hanover County 434 acres in Hanover County adjoining land of Capt. Carr’s Land…by Bear Swamp.

1735 July 3 – Hanover County, Virginia Court Records:  Hugh Hogan of Hanover County deeded to William Munkass of said county, 30 currency money, 150 acres…to corner on ye lower side of Hogan’s Swamp near ye mill…corner Charles Davocks line….Barbary Winston’s line…Presstwood’s corner…Hogan’s corner….upper side of Hogan’s Swamp down ye swamp to a corner in a Meadow a little below ye Mill.  Signed: Hugh “”H” Hogan.  Witnesses: Robert Harris, Richard Harris, Mourning Harris.  Entered 3 July 1735.  

Hanover Court Records – Davis, page 67, (original page 267-268), as found on ancestry Message Boards, Gary Violette, posted 5 March 2007.   

 

      Apparently, one small book of Hanover Court Records survived for the years 1734-1735.

 

1736 June 9 – Williamsburg, Virginia: Hugh Hogan Land Dispute

 

At a Council held at the Capital June the 9th 1736: Present – The Governor James Blair, Clerk John Carter, etc.

 

On hearing this day of the Board, the parties on the Caveat entered by John Mallory against Hugh Hogan for 293 acres of Land in Hanover County surveyed for the said Hogan in MDCCXXXIVIV no Patent ever sued out by him.  It appearing that the said Hogan hath not complied with the Orders of Government.  It is Ordered that the said John Mallory have a Grant for the said Land according to the Prayer of the Petition.

 

Wm. Mallory having Petitioned for a Grant of 400 acres of Land in Hanover County formerly surveyed for Hugh Hogan who failed to Sue (suit/issue) out a Patent for the same in due time and said Hogan & the Petitioner being now heard & the Allegations of the Petitioner being found true, it is ordered that he have a Grant for the said 400 acres of land upon his producing rights for the same.

The following tax records are from “Louisa County, Virginia Tithables and Census 1743-1785,” by Rosalie E.

1781 April 19 – Douglas Register: “Jo. Hoggan” married on 19 April 1781 to “Eliz: Pinax,” and includes “both of Louisa County.”   They are entered into the Douglas Register marriage records in the marriage section which was directly recorded by him.  Also, surname is spelled Penix or Penax.

The Douglas Register, edited by W. Mac Jones 1928, page 26.

 

“The Douglas Register” was kept by Rev. William Douglas from 1756 until near the time of his death in 1798.  Records covered birth, marriages, and deaths of St. James Northam Parish of Goochland County and encompassed others with marriages and birthdates from nearby areas not directly handled by him.  The book is 412 pages long.  This researcher (J. Murphy) finds some errors whereby both marriage dates and birth/baptism dates sometimes are the same.   Furthermore, there is evidence that this John Hogan who married Elizabeth Penax belongs to our subject John Hogan “I.”  See the discussion in the section under Children of John Hogan “I.”  The next item below adds confusion.  If not confusion, it is complexity…. 

 

1781 December 4 - Douglas Register: John Hoggan” married to “Helener Couts” on 4 December 1781, and stated this marriage was from a birth record and not taken directly by Reverend William Douglas.    

The Douglas Register, edited by W. Mac Jones 1928, page 108, 213. 

 

Douglas Register also records for John Hoggan and Eleanor Couts, the birth of their daughter Rebekah, born 4 December 1781 and Baptized 21 February 1782.   The last two dates for Rebeckah Hogan may be accurate but not the parent’s marriage date.   The Douglas Register recorded this marriage under a separate section listed “Marriages not recorded by Rev. Wm. Douglas but indicated by the Birth Registry.”  They apparently did not live in St. James-Northam Parish.

This isn’t William Hogan “II.”   A record exists stating he died in the Am. Revolution!  This must be William Hogan “I” or a different person.   One later record shows a different William Hogan and wife Susannah Williams have a daughter “Peggie Thomson Hogan” born 16 January 1784 and baptized 25 November 1784.*

Mowatt.    

 

               Richard Neave had collected money from the Manor of Eastwood Estate of Wm. Hammond, deceased of Stepney Parish, Middlesex County, England.   The estate money was to go to his uncle – William Clopton and any of his children living at the time of the Hammond’s death.   Apparently, the Manor of Eastwood had long ceased to function.  The unidentified writer for this article concluded that money from the estates had already gone to pay debts and other persons.

Overview from Tyler’s Quarterly - Hanover and Louisa Counties, Virginia: “The (family) lines of Nicholas and Charles Mills, positively sons of the Charles Mills who died 1764, son of Nicholas Mills and Ann Clopton, have been traced to the extent of the writer’s knowledge (see above entry).  Apparently, Charles had also daughters Mary who married William Hogan and Elizabeth who married Jas. Burnley.  Our first mention of William Hogan is in Louisa (Rec. DB B/319), February 6, 1759, when David and Elizabeth Anderson of St. Martin’s Parish Hanover, deed to William Hogan of Fredricksville Parish, 400 acres which David Anderson had purchased Dec. 31, 1757, from Thos. Emmerson.  William Hogan died intestate in 1794 (WB 3/571) on Dec. 8, 1794, James Hogan with Chas. Jackson as his security gives bond to administer on the estate.  In Louisa (Rec. DB K/92) July 8, 1805, William Mallory, James Hogan, Frances and Elizabeth Hogan deed to Mary Hogan their share of Wm. Hogan’s land on Little River, of which he died seized and possessed.”   Question is Mary Hogan – the widow or a daughter?

(2) William Hogan, Jr or “II” (~1751 to ~1776).  Birth date is based on 1768 tax record if age 17.   He has no heirs and probably did not marry.  

 

~1776 (uncertain of year) – Revolutionary War: “William Hogan, Jr,” soldier, infantry, whose name appeared in the Army Register but had not received bounty land.

 

1832 May 19 - Revolutionary War Land Grant:  Exec. Dept. (May 19, 1832).  “The heirs of William Hogan are allowed land bounty for service during the war as a Private in the (Virginia) Continental Line, John Floyd, Governor.   Louisa County Court – Anthony Winston made oath that early in the war of the Revolution, William Hogan enlisted for the war under Captain Thomas Johnson of Louisa County, Virginia and that he ‘always heard and firmly believes that said William Hogan fell in battle somewhere to the south, and that Mary, Elizabeth and Frances are the sisters and only heirs of said William Hogan.’”  Sworn to before William Waddy, J.P. (20 November 1831).    Another entry in this source states this land was issued in the name of Mary, Elizabeth and Francis Hogan.   William Scott was the agent to whom the script was delivered.

One must be careful here, the term “heirs” usually refers to descendants of a deceased person.   If that person never married or had a no family, then the heirs broadens to include the subject’s brothers and sisters.   This reference is unclear and doesn’t state the married names of these sisters.  The original source has not been reviewed, but might add details.  Date of 1832 seems suspiciously late based on the sister’s last names being written as Hogan instead of married names.   Can we verify the date?

1787 June – Louisa County, Virginia: In a very awkwardly written document, Zachariah Hogan complained to Louisa County Chancery Court that he had given Edmund Powers the sum of three pounds in several payments sometime after Hogan had given his Bond to the said Powers.  Powers disagreed on the amount paid.   Later, the complainant “made application by his brother William Hogan to know who your said orators bond was, but could never be informed where (what) the bond was.”   He asked the court to discharge him from the Bond to Powers.

(2- William Hogan, son of John Hogan “I.”   If correctly interpreted, brother Zachariah Hogan stated he had a brother named William Hogan.   Nothing is known about him, except for the several unexplained entries for a William Hogan in 1784 which are:

 

1784 January 16 – Virginia County not identified: William Hogan married Susannah Williams on 16 January 1784 in Douglas Register marriages not recorded by Rev. Douglas. *   

* The Douglas Register, edited by W. Mac Jones 1928, page 108.

 

1784 January 16 – Virginia County not identified: “Will: Hogan & Susannah Williams, a child Peggie Thomson (Hogan), 16 January 1784.  Baptized 25 November 1784. (p. 97)” *    Under “Births and Baptisms” section. 

* The Douglas Register, edited by W. Mac Jones 1928, page 213 and yes, the birth date and marriage date are the same.  This suggests the marriage date was incorrectly entered by the Douglas Register transcriber.

Douglas Register states “Jo. Hoggan” married on 19 April 1781 to “Eliz: Pinax,” “both of Louisa County.” *   He migrated to Garrard County, Kentucky in 1797 and died there on 6 August 1798.  His widow Elizabeth was left to raise their youngest children.

1 - James Hogan (1750 to 1811 Garrard County, Kentucky) married Elizabeth __(1754-1828) and was the son of James Hogan (ca1728 to 1793 Anson County, North Carolina) who married Silence __ (maiden name possibly Lane - ~1730 to 1811 Anson Co. NC).   James and Silence Hogan originated from Lunenburg, Halifax, and Pittsylvania Counties, Virginia before finally settling in Anson County, North Carolina.   James and Silence Hogan did not have a son named John Hogan, per their two wills.

2- John Hogan (ca1745 to 1798 Garrard County, Kentucky) married Elizabeth Penix (ca1750 to 1811 or later) in Louisa County, Virginia (minister’s record).  He was not a brother to Garrard County’s James Hogan (1750-1811).  This John Hogan was the son of John Hogan (ca1720 to about 1789) of Louisa County, Virginia who married Judith __ (ca1730’s to 1800+ outside Virginia).  John and wife Judith Hogan lived in Louisa and Goochland Counties, Virginia.  

 

Both James Hogan (1750-1811) and John Hogan (ca1745 – 1798/unknown) both had sons named John Hogan and William Hogan.   It is important to separate them. 

 

James Hogan’s son - John Hogan (31 October 1791 Kentucky to 26 October 1834) is buried in Hogan Cemetery, Garrard County with his father James Hogan (1752 – 1811).   This John Hogan had a son John M. Hogan (23 October 1830 Barron Co. Ky to >1881+ Bates County, Missouri) who married Elizabeth Dishman.  Do not confuse with another John M. Hogan noted later below.

 

John Hogan’s son is likely - John M. Hogan (16 July 1788 Goochland Co., Va., to 20 July 1865 per Bible record) married 1830 to Margaret Ann Baker was born Feb. 4, 1811 and died Jan. 23, 1885).  

 

James Hogan’s son – William Hogan was living in 1825 as noted his mother’s Jessamine County will, and can be found on the 1820 and 1830 US Census of Jessamine County, Kentucky.   Little else is known about him.  The other William Hogan - son of John + Elizbeth Penix Hogan, is more obscure and is discussed later in this review.

* The Douglas Register, edited by W. Mac Jones 1928, page 26.

 

               Available Goochland County personal tax records (Binns Genealogy) were checked from 1782 to 1797.   There is a John Hogan in 1783, 1784 and 1787 to 1789, but no Hogans from 1790 through 1797.  Unable to define which John Hogan is recorded during these years.

      * These eight children names were repeated twice more again in the indenture.   Notice that the first time for the children, that only 5 were mentioned.  Why?  Possibly, the other three were not legal age to be named grantors.  In the following tax records, The * continues to indicate our current subject Hogan and children.

 

1810 US Census of Garrard County, Kentucky:

Hogan, Jas - 2 males 10-15, 1 male & 2 females 16-25, 1 male + 1 female 45+, 5 slaves.

*Hogan, Elizabeth – 1 male + 1 female 10-15, 1 male 16-25, 1 male 26-44, 1 female 45+

Hogan, Betsey – 1 female 0-9, 1 male + 1 female 10-15, 1 male 16-25, 1 female 45+.  Who is Betsey? Possibly is the wife of the above Jas. Hogan but the idea of second entry is odd unless both were running separate farmsteads or a farmstead plus a Garrard County River Ferry, with tax list taken by two different tax takers.  Also, better speculation suggests she could be the wife of Philip Hogan.  Notice that the 1810 county tax below does not list any free males with Philip’s name.  This Philip Hogan is thought to be a brother of Prosser Hogan – see their write-up.

1825 May 10 – Jessamine County, Kentucky: Will of Elizabeth Hogan: …I, Elizabeth Hogan of the County of Garrard and State of Kentucky being weak in body but of sound memory and discretion do make and ordain this my last will and testament in manner and form following, to wit, my will and interest in a tract of land lying in Garrard County and my undivided interest in a tract of land lying in Rockcastle County, Ky. near Roccastle river  in the main state road be sold by my Executors on _ terms as he may judge and the money arising from the sale to be equally divided among  my sons – John Hogan, Samuel Hogan, and William Hogan.  Secondly, I give and bequeath to my daughter Betsy Baldock my negro Woman Crease and all my wearing apparel.   Thirdly, all the rest and residue of my goods and chattels whatever.  I give and bequeath to my sons John Hogan, Samuel Hogan, and William Hogan after paying my just debts.   Fourthly, I do hereby I do constitute and appoint Williamson G. Mullens Executor of this will…this day 10th of May 1825.   (Signed – Elizabeth Hogan) with her seal.   Witnesses: John Dunn and Benjamin Dun.  Probated March Court 1828.  (Will Book D/101). 

 

This is the will of Elizabeth Hogan, widow of Garrard County’s James Hogan who died 1811.   Do not confuse this with Elizabeth Hogan, wife of John Hogan who died 1798 Garrard County.   John and Elizabeth Hogan did not have a son named Samuel Hogan.  

       

Part 11 - Children of John Hogan, Jr. or “II” (ca1745 – 1797)

and wife Elizabeth Penix: (i), (ii), (iii), etc

 

(i). Lewis Hogan: 

 

1802 Garrard County, Kentucky Tax: Hogan, Lewis, 10001, 29 May, #230/491

1820 US Census of Garrard, Garrard County, Kentucky: Hogan, Lewis 2 males 26-44, 1 female 45+

 

        The oldest female in Lewis Hogan’s family could be his mother Elizabeth Penax Hogan.

 

(ii). Edmund Hogan: 1803 Garrard County, Kentucky Tax: Hogan, Edmon, 10001, May 30, #283/491

 

(iii). Zachariah Hogan (~1783 Virginia).  Married in 1806 to Delilah Marksberry, by consent of her father Samuel Marksberry.) (Bond 416, box 2).  Deed Book E, page 237:  Zachariah Hogan purchased 29 acres on Sugar Creek in 1812; same land that he and wife Delilah sold to Bailey Richardson on 21 September 1815.  Moved to Grant County, Kentucky where his wife Delilah died 1824 and he died about 1850.

1820 US Census of Grant County, Kentucky: Zachariah Hogan – 2 males + 1 female 0-9, 2 males + 1 female 10-15, 1 male + 1 female 26-44.

 

(iv). Sarah Hogan

 

(v). John Hogan is likely to be John M. Hogan (16 July 1788 Goochland Co., Va., to 20 July 1865 Bible record*) married 1830 to Margaret Ann Baker was born Feb. 4, 1811, formerly of Culpepper Co., Va.; died Jan. 23, 1885.   Transcriber Molly Hogan Gentry noted John M. Hogan (born July 16, 1788) in the War of 1812 was wounded in the Battle of the River Raisin; his brother William was Captain of his company in the Civil War and was killed in action.  Gentry may have been the one to add John M. Hogan was born in Goochland County, Virginia.   “Goochland” noted in this record is a key to placing this Hogan here.

Hogan Bible Records owned by Mrs. Martha Parrish, daughter of John M. Hogan of Fayette County, Kentucky.   Found in Kentucky Pioneer and Court Records, 1981, page 265, Google Books. 

 

Children of John M. Hogan + Margaret Ann Baker, per Bible record are:

 

(i) William Jefferson Hogan (8 July 1839 – 16 May 1878) married 1 December 1870 to Nancy Margaret Hundley) – was a Baptist Minister and (a Union Captain in the Civil War), (ii) Isham Talbot Hogan (7 March 1832 – 25 April 1896), (iii) John Henry Hogan (12 September 1834 to 7 March 1909) married 7 February 1877 to Mary Baker, (iv) Lucy Ann Hogan (23 March 1837 to 21 April 1896) married 3 July 1862 to James Stipp, (v) Samuel Preston Hogan (29 June 1841 – 2 February 1871), married 25 August 1870 to Belle Montgomery – was a Baptist Minister, (vi) James Hamilton Hogan (28 March 1844 to 24 August 1856), (vii). Margaret Jane Hogan (26 September 1846 – 3 March 1917) married 5 January 1871 to Joseph Stipp, (viii) Martha Hane Hogan (1 July 1850) married 29 December 1869 to Joseph Parish, (ix) Nannie Olivia Hogan (18 July 1860). 

 

1860 US Census of District 2, Fayette County, Kentucky: John M. Hogan 69 Va. Margaret Hogan 50 Ky, Isom Hogan 27 Ky, John Hogan 25 Ky, Lucy Hogan 22 Ky, William Hogan 18 Ky, Samuel Hogan 16 Ky, Margaret Hogan 13 Ky, Martha Hogan 8 Ky.   

 

(vi). William Hogan, son of John Hogan “II” + Elizabeth Penax.

 

               There are three candidates to consider: (1a), (2a), (3a)

 

1a – Captain William Hogan.   Brother to John M. Hogan whose history is noted above.  This William Hogan died as a Captain in the Civil War.  That’s all we have for information.   Based on current information, keep in mind that their father died 1798.  That would make William Hogan in the Civil War, if born maybe 1795, to be age 67 to 70 during the years 1862-1865.   This seems most unlikely unless he was serving the CSA near its end.       

 

2a – William R. Hogan (~1781 to >1 April 1839 Madison Co., Ky).   There is no evidence that he is John Hogan “II’s” son, but does appear to be a reasonable candidate.  His middle initial comes from 1839 Guardianship papers for his young son Matthew Hogan.

 

1809 March 2 – Madison County, Kentucky: Marriage of William Hogan to Lavina Mullins.

1810 US Census of Madison Co., Ky: William Hogan 1 female 0-9, 1 female 16-25, 1 male 26-44

1820 US Census of Madison Co., Ky: Wm Hogan, 4 males 0-9, 1 male + 1 female 26-44

1830 US Census of Western Division, Madison Co., Ky: William Hogan, 1 male + 1 female 0-4, 1 male + 1 female 5-9, 1 male + 1 female 10-14, 1 male 15-19, 1 female 40-49, 1 male 50-59, 2 slaves. 

1839 April 1 – Madison County, Ky. Court:  After his death, his son Matthew Hogan, an orphan (without a father) comes under the guardianship of John Hogan.

Kentucky Probate Records 1727-1990, at familysearch.org under Madison County, image 3/1121.

1839 September 3 – Madison Co. Ky: Lavina Hogan married William Curtis.

 

Comment: If one checks the 1820 census records for William R. Hogan, his oldest possible birth date would be 1776.   On his 1830 census, his youngest possible birth date would be 1780.   If the census records are truly accurate, then his birth date falls between 1776 and 1780.    John Hogan “II” and Elizabeth Penax married 19 April 1781.   If John’s son William proves to be not the first or second born, then this would eliminate William R.   More research is needed to sort out this problem.     

 

3a – William B. Hogan (1785/95 to 1835 Warren County, Kentucky) of Simpson County, Ky. and Barren County, Kentucky.   No evidence exists that he is a son of John Hogan ‘II.”  His earliest record was when he first volunteered his services in 1812 Green County, Kentucky.   He later became a Corporal and was at the Battle of New Orleans in January 1815.   He married 1st _ and 2nd on 23 July 1823 Barren County, Kentucky to Sarah D. Mallory “Sallie” (1801/2 to 1889).  His first marriage is reported three times in her widow’s pension application, but without further detail.  

Children are (i) Malvina Hogan (1823), (ii) Elizabeth Hogan (1826), (iii) Jerome Hogan (1833-1908), (iv) Robert Thomas Hogan 1834-1922, (v) Martha Ann Hogan, (vi) Alexander Hogan (1831).  Death was 31 October 1835 Warren County, Kentucky per widow’s War of 1812 pension application.   Further details can be found on his separate review.

 

(vii). Elizabeth Hogan

(viii). Elihu Hogan (~1788 to 1850+)

 

1824 September 14 – Garrard County, Ky: Marriage of Elihu Hogan to Isabella Roety (county record)

 

1840 US Census of Garrard County, Kentucky: Elihu Hogan – 1 male 0-4, 2 males 5-9, 1 male 10-14, 1 female 30-39, 1 male 40-49

 

1850 US Census of District 2, Fayette County, Kentucky: Jane Roety 85 location? Elihu Hogan 52, Ky. manufacturing, Isabella Hogan 50 Ky; Jas. C. Hogan 20 Ky lawyer, John T. Hogan 18 Ky. lawyer, William P. Hogan 16 Ky,  ? B. Hogan 13 Ky. Mary F. Hogan 5 Ky.

Part 12 - John Hogan who married Eleanor Couts/Coots/Cootes/Coats

 

John Hogan (ca1750’s to before 1813) who married Eleanor Couts/Coots (1758 to 1847 Harrison Co. Indiana):    The Douglas Register states “John Hoggan” married “Helener Couts” on 4 December 1781 at a location not named.*   Later records show her first name as Eleanor.   This family line is traceable to Harrison County, Indiana.   Family Bible in possession of James Darby of Clarksville, Indiana states Eleanor Hogan, mother of John Hogan, was born December 1758 and died 27 March 1847 at age 89.**   Their back-trail to a primary Virginia county needs to be found.  The Virginia State Census of 1782/1787 notes three persons with the closest spelling to Coots or Couts are William Coutts x 2 and Reuben Coutts, all living in 1782 Henrico County, Virginia (census lacks Hanover County).  ***   Relationship to the above Hogans is unknown.

Details for John Hogan (1750s to before 1806) + Eleanor Coots

 

1781 December 4 - Douglas Register: John Hoggan” married to “Helener Couts” on 4 December 1781, and stated this marriage was from a birth record and not taken directly by Reverend William Douglas.

Nelly Hogan (chargeable) and John Hogan (1 white tithable), 0 0 0   Both names are not in 1807-1812 taxes.  Nelly is a nickname for Helen, Ellen, Eleanor and several other names.  Believe this is Eleanor Coots/Couts of Louisa County, Virginia who married John Hogan (1750’s to before 1806):  The 1806 John Hogan is most likely Nelly’s son (born 30 December 1786) and not her husband.  This also increases the possibility that the 1806 William Hogan is also a son, perhaps slightly older.

(ii). Rebekah Hogan, daughter of John Hogan, was Baptized 21 February 1782.   Douglas Register states “Jo: Hoggan & Helener Couts, a child named Rebekah, born Dec. 4. 1781; Baptized 21 February 1782.”   Note again the marriage date and birth date are the same and this the 3rd time the transcriptionist has been noted to make the same a birth and marriage dates; most likely the marriage date is wrong.  Also, Rebekah is likely to be another name for one of her sisters.

(v) possibly – William Hogan who shows up in the 1806 Henrico County tax record which also lists John and Nellie Hogan.  These three are the only Hogan names that show up Henrico tax records from 1783 to 1812.   If he is a son to John + Nellie Hogan and this is his first tax record, then his birth date can be estimated 1806 - 17= 1789, if his age was about 17. 

 

Part 13 - Short Summary About Philip, Prosser, and David Hogan

Hanover County, Virginia – whose county records failed to survive  

 

Merchant records also indicated there is another Hogan line in Hanover County during this era.  This is Philip Hogan.  Included a single record, there is a Prosser Hogan in 1755 or 1756.  This Prosser Hogan in Hanover County is not the same Prosser Hogan (1761/62 – 1830) of Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky.   Philip Hogan Jr. can be found in later records in Orange County, Virginia between 1761-1769.   Their details are in the Prosser Hogan review and are still too incomplete to reconstruct families. 

 

Later in 1787, Hanover County, Virginia Court certified that David Hogan, was a Private who died while serving in the 5th Virginia Regiment of American Continental Army under the command of Capt. Richard B. Anderson.   His widow Mary Hogan was entitled pension payments commencing the first day of January 1787.   Pension payment was signed by John Lawrence, Gent. under the direction of Edmund Randolph, Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

See the “Prosser, Phillip, and David Hogan Review” in their separate chapter for details.  All three of these Hanover County Hogans – Prosser, Phillip, and David Hogan are not the same Hogans which are reviewed in their own chapter.
