This update 1 December 2020, planetmurphy.org, James R. Murphy

 

Part-A. William R. Hogan (~1780 to 1839) + Lavina Mullins of Madison County, Kentucky

Part-B. James Hogan (ca1760 to 1823) of Simpson County, Kentucky and his two sons: (e1-a) Alexander P. Hogan (1783 Virginia – 1881?) and (e1-b) Nathaniel S. Hogan (1806 Virginia to 1870+ Lafayette County, Missouri)

Part-C. James Hogan (~1791 to 1865) + Ann Baldock of Barren County, Kentucky

 

Part A.  William R. Hogan + Lavina Mullins of Madison County, Kentucky.  

 

William R. Hogan (~1780 to <1 April 1839 Madison Co., Ky) married 2 March 1809 in Madison County, Kentucky to Lavina Mullin.  He does not appear to be a son of Garrard County's John Hogan “II’ (ca1745 to 1798).  His middle initial comes from 1839 Guardianship papers for his young son Matthew Hogan, but was not used.  His children, who are mostly incomplete, are not understood.  Help is needed finding the names of their children.

 

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 blacks. 

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 his census records are truly accurate, then his birth date falls between 1776 and 1780.   

 

Part-B. James Hogan (ca1760 to 1823) of Simpson County, Kentucky and his known two Sons

 

James Hogan

Born ca1760; little to base a birth date and could become earlier.

Origins are definitely Virginia, per descendant claims and as late as 1806.  Specific Virginia location(s) not yet identified.  First records found for him begin in 1819 Simpson County (established 1819 in part from Warren County) and continue yearly in Simpson County until his last record in 1823.

Kentucky: First appears in 1821 Simpson County, Kentucky tax records (established 1819 in part from Warren Co.) until 1824.   Later in Warren County, Ky tax records from 1824 to 1837.  Missouri – Lafayette County, Missouri

County Records for James Hogan and His Sons

 

(Not our subject) 1810 US Census of Green County, Kentucky: (Greensburg District).   James Hogan – 1 male + 1 female 10-15 (1795-1800), 1 male + female 45+ (before 1765), 4 blacks (image 3/9)

 

Keep in mind that this James Hogan (Jr., ~1763 to 1817?) exists and has to be separated from Simpson County’s James Hogan.

 

 Projecting names to this 1810 census record:  Oldest female should be wife “Conny” noted only once in a 1787 Union County, South Carolina deed… if he didn’t remarry later in Kentucky.  The young male 10-15 (1795-1800) is John Hogan, son of Madison, Lincoln, and Green Counties James Hogan.  This John Hogan is recorded deceased in 1815. Green County Court records state his father was James Hogan.  There is no room for Alexander P. Hogan (1783 – 1881?) or Nathaniel S. Hogan (1806 to 1870+) on the 1810 census.   No estate administration or probate has been found for this Green County’s James Hogan who disappears after 1817.   Furthermore, both Nathaniel S. Hogan (born ~1806) and Alexander P. Hogan (born ~1783) stated repeatedly on their US Census records that they were born in Virginia. This other James Hogan was living in Madison County, Kentucky by 1791/94.    

 

My conclusion: This 1810 census record is not compatible with the Simpson County’s James Hogan’s 1820 census – see below to compare.   These are two different James Hogans.

 

1819 Simpson County, Kentucky Tax:

“Wm. B. Hogan”, 1001 (#1 - 1 w. male 21+, #2 Blacks 16+, #3 Total Blacks, #4 - 1 horse

James Hogan, 117 acres, Drakes Fork, 1142

 

Wow!  Tax record says William B. Hogan!  Simpson County, Kentucky was established 1819 from Logan, Allen, and Warren Counties.  Before 1819, these 3 counties might have earlier Hogan information.  

 

1820 US Census of Franklin, Simpson County, Kentucky:

William Hogan – 2 males and 1 female 0-9, 1 female 16-25, 1 male 26-44.  Six names away from:

James Hogan – 1 male 10-15, 1 male 16-25, 1 male 45+, 6 slaves.

 

      Projecting possible names to James Hogan’s 1820 census: Male age 10-15 (1805 - 1810) is Nathaniel S. Hogan. Male 16-25 (1795-1804) is an unknown name.  Male older than 1775 is James Hogan.  Alex is not in this census record.  Notice that James Hogan had no wife in this census. 

 

1821 Simpson County, Kentucky Tax:

James Hogan – 127 acres D. Creek, In whose name entered - A.P. Hogan, 11153 (#1 is white males 21+, #2 is total voters, #3 slaves 16+ & #4 total slaves, #5 horses).  Next name on list is:

P. Alexander Hogan – 110000.  Next name on list is:

Wm Hogan 110000

 

Simpson County has irregular attempts at alphabetic tax lists (A’s, B’s etc.) and surname groupings.  This makes knowing who lived nearby difficult.

 

1822 Simpson County, Kentucky Tax:

Wm Hogan 11000 (2 names from Alex P. Hogan)

Alex P. Hogan – 11000 (next to James Hogan on list)

James Hogan – 127 acres D. Creek, in whose name entered – A.P. Hogan, 111403 (#5 is now town lots and #6 horses

 

1823 Simpson County, Kentucky Tax:

James Hogan 117 D. Creek, in whose name entered A.P. Hogan, 1142 (#2 & #3 blacks)

 

1824 Simpson County, Kentucky Tax:

Alex P. Hogan 127 acres Drakes Creek, 110000 (found on last page of 1824 tax)

 

1825 to 1835 Simpson County, Tax: No Hogans.  Deeds and other court house records were lost.  Alexander P. Hogan and Nathaniel S. Hogan continue in Warren County taxes from 1824 through 1837.   Alexander migrated to Lafayette County, Missouri in May 1837 and a daughter Cassandra M. Hogan married Henry Slasher on 23 January 1845.*
