After first reviewing other websites for these Hogans, this researcher (J. Murphy) found previous family reconstructions a mess.     Evidence based documentation was rarely used or too incomplete.  Failure of family records to survive and too much guesswork compounded this.  Tracking wives is always useful, but they rarely surface.   This review is my effort to reconstruct these families and is not finished.  Many children’s names are still missing and placement of some Hogans is still uncertain.  Consider this a working paper.     

             

(Part A) – William Hogan (ca1675 – 1734) + Elizabeth Griffin - 1st Generation:

 

(Earliest known). William HoganI” (ca1675 to 1734 in Brunswick County, Virginia) married about 1705 to Elizabeth Griffin (ca1683 to ??).  Birth date estimations could change with better information.  Previous sources of information are very rough at best, except for a report found on William Hogan and wife Elizabeth Griffin. *  

* Early Colonial Settlers of Southern Maryland and Virginia’s North Neck Counties      

 

1719 February 20 – Isle of Wight County, Virginia:  Thomas Smith grantee of 270 acres new Settlement for the Sapone Indians at Christanna.  Being part of that tract of land whereon the said Indians lately dwelt.   On the North side of Maherine River (error - should be South side).   Now in today’s Brunswick County, Virginia. 

Land Patents No. 10, 1710-1719, p. 459 (Reel 10), on line at Library of Virginia.

 

When William Hogan’s two daughters sold their inheritance land from their father, their grantor deed stated their land was from a land patent to Richard Smith dated 20 February 1719.   This Virginia patent actually went to his father Thomas Smith, and then by inheritance in October 1718 to son Richard Smith, who then sold some or all of it to William Hogan.    This 1719 grant which was located in Christanna should give us a location on the Meherrin River.  DeLorme Virginia Atlas & Gazetteer shows Fort Christanna on the south bank of the Meherrin River, about 5 miles south of Lawrenceville, Brunswick County, Virginia.  Fort Christanna existed from 1718 into the 1720’s and was used to instruct and teach area Indians and one of the first teachers was a Charles Griffin (ca1679 to ca1720).   By 1730 or so, Indians left the area.

Prince George County, Virginia Wills and Deeds 1713-1728, Benjamin B. Wisinger III, 1973, 1718 Will of Thomas Smith is on page 40-41.

 

With this in mind, let us begin with the earliest William Hogan record in 1733 Prince William County.  

   

1733 August 16 – Prince William County, Virginia (old style deed lease and release combined here): Deed from William Hogan and Elizabeth his wife of Prince William County to Mary Griffin of same, widow, 20 pounds for lease and another 10 pounds for release, 409 acres on upper side (between the upper most great fork of said run) of Piney Branch falling into Popes Head Run being one of the branches of Occoquan…granted to Walter Griffin, deceased who by his last will devised to Thomas Simpson for life who being now dead, the same reverts to Elizabeth, as only sister and heir of said Walter.   Signed – Wm. Hogan - his W.H. and Eliz. Hogan - her E.   Witnesses - George Mason, James Gib, W. Watson.  At the court 17 August 1733, William Hogan and Elizabeth Hogan acknowledged this release with receipt to Mary Griffin.  (DB Liber B/98-100).  

Found online on Early Colonial Settlers of Southern Maryland and Virginia’s Northern Neck Counties under William Hogan, aft. 1733 online   

 

Mary Griffin was the widow of Walter Griffin who married later to Lewis Elizey.  Elizabeth was a sister to Walter Griffin.  Next step would be to find a deed from Smith to William Hogan in Southeast Virginia.  Problem is Brunswick County was established in 1720 and held no court until 1732.  During this period, area deeds were probably filed at Prince George County which lost its deeds from about 1728 to 1855.   After William Hogan died, questions arise on whether widow Elizabeth was still alive.  The estate administration below doesn’t mention his wife. 

 

Popes Head Run flows into the northeast side of Occoquan River, several miles east of today’s Manassas Park, Manassas City County with its north branch headwaters ending in Fairfax, Fairfax County, Virginia.  Popes Head Run is completely within today’s Fairfax County, Virginia (established 1742 from Prince William County.  Prince William and Stafford counties lost most of their early county records.  Stafford County landowners (based on Virginia Land Grants and surveys) include Walter Griffin with 426 acres noted in 1723 and recorded yearly from 1726/27 to 1729/30 on Pope’s Head Run (Accotinck Creek), and (the north branch) of Pohick Run, all on the northeast side of the Occoquan River.  Also, nearby is John Hogan who had land vaguely described on the southwest side of the Occoquan River in 1710 & 1711 and who is detailed in the Fauquier County Hogan’s chapter.

1734 November 8 – Brunswick County, Virginia:  Inventory & appraisal of the estate of William Hogin as by court order dated 8 November 1734.  Appraised by James Haley – his “I”, Joseph Turner - his x, James Lundey - his “I.”  Entered in Court 6 November 1735 by Lewis Dupre - Administrator.  Drury Stith CC.  (DB&WB 1/235)

1735 – Brunswick County, Virginia Court:  Accounts for the estate of William Hogin, deceased in 1735 by Lewis Dupree, Administrator.  Accounts named were Jno Brewer, Henry Cook, John Curtis, Mary Dean, Benj’n Chapin Donaldson, John Douglass, Robt. Douglass, William Douglass, Jno Dupree, Francis Harris, Henry Harrison, Mr. Peterson, Timothy Reaves, Richard Smith, Charles Travis and Joseph Wright.  Noted were quitrents on 123 acres.  Returned to Court 7 April 1737 by Lewis Dupree - Administrator. Drury Stith CC. (DB&WB 1/266)

Brunswick County, Virginia Deed Books, Volume 1, 1732-1745, Dr. Stephen E. Bradley, Jr. 1997

 

Children of William Hogan “I” (ca1675 – 1734) + Elizabeth Griffin are (I) to (IV):

 

(I). Obedience Hogan married Edward McGraw/Macgraugh.  

(II). Mary Hogan married Henry Louter. 

 

1742 September 1 – Brunswick County, Virginia: Edward Megraugh & his wife Obedience of North Hampton (Northampton) County, North Carolina, Henry Lauter & his wife Mary of Brunswick Co. to & Richard Smith of Northampton County to James Turner of Brunswick County, 1 September 1742. 

A 1-year lease from the Megraughs & the Lauters for 5 shillings for 100 acres which was part of a patent to said Richard Smith dated 20 February 1719 who conveyed it to William Hogan & descended to said Obedience and said Mary, both daughters of said William Hogan, deceased on the south side of Meherrin River, joining said Richard Smith, joining lands which had belonged to Joseph Turner deceased father of James Turner and now held by said James Turner.  

Also, a 1-year lease from Richard Smith for 5 shillings for 20 acres which was part of the above noted patent, on the south side of Meherrin River, joining James Turner, Smiths Cove, Dupree.  Witnesses omitted. Proved 2 September 1742. Ster. Clack CC.  (DB 2/171).  Next deed does the same thing to James Turner of Brunswick Co. 2 September 1742.  

Brunswick County, Virginia Deed Books, Volume 1, 1732-1745, Dr. Stephen E. Bradley, Jr. 1997    

 

Megraugh and Lauter married two Hogan sisters – Obedience and Mary.  These are daughters of William Hogan “I.”   Notice that the Megraughs were living in Northampton County, North Carolina.  This old-time lease-release deed in two parts is confusing in its language.  It appears to say - Hogan sisters inherited land from their father William Hogan, who purchased it from Richard Smith.  These sisters in 1742 leased/sold their share back to Richard Smith, who then leased/sold 20 of the 100 acres to James Turner.  As mentioned before, the 20 February 1719 land patent went to Thomas Smith, then was inherited by his son Richard Smith. 

 

1742 September 1 – Brunswick County, Virginia deed continued: Edward Megraugh and his wife Obedience of North Hampton County, North Carolina, Henry Lauter & his wife Mary of Brunswick Co. (to) & Richard Smith of Northampton County deeded to James Turner of Brunswick Co,21 September 1742. 

Turner’s release from the Megraughs & Lauters for 20 pounds for 100 acres for 100 acres which was part of a patent to said Richard Smith dated 20 February 1719 who conveyed it to William Hogan & descended to said Obedience and said Mary, both daughters of said William Hogan, on the south side of Maherrin River.

Turner’s release from said Richard Smith for 5 pounds Virginia for 20 acres which was part of the above patent, on the south side of Maherrin River.   Witnesses omitted.   Proved 2 September 1742.         

Brunswick Co, Va. DB 2/173, per Dr. Stephen E. Bradley, Jr. 1997.

 

(III). John Hogan is noted only once in South Carolina in 1750 reference with William Hogan - see below.  So far, he is difficult to trace.

 

(IV). William Hogan “II” (ca1705 to ~1778+) + (? Sarah Sullivan?) + Ann.  (Part B)

 

              William Hogan “II” (ca1705) is reported to marry about 1728 to Sarah Sullivan (ca1708).  She cannot be found in county records relating to our subject and is questionable.  Furthermore, a different William Hogan – “Sarah Sullavan” marriage is recorded in 1778, which is too late and a place distant*.    Records do show William Hogan signing a 1755 Northampton County deed with Ann Hogan who is presumed to be his wife.        

* Rev. John Alderson, likely from Augusta County – Botetourt - Greenbrier Counties, Virginia area wrote: “Married on 4 May 1778 William Hogan to “Sarah Sullavan.”    From Virginia Marriage Records - A Book Containing the Marriages by Me, John Alderson, Va. Vital Records 1600’s-1800’s by Genealogical Publishing Co, Inc. Family Archives, CD 174.  

 

Some websites list our subject here as “William Griffin Hogan.”  Since he named one son “William Griffin Hogan,” one might expect the terms “Senior” or “Junior” would be added to their names.   This did not happen and raises the question if he had a middle name.   William Griffin Hogan (~1730) is the son of William Hogan (ca1705), and this is how county records wisely separated them.  

 

William Hogan “II” (ca1705) lived in Brunswick and Lunenburg Counties, Virginia, and Northampton County, North Carolina.   Living in Northampton County at the same time was a Cordell Hogan / Cardell Hogan (born 1758 Northampton Co. NC to 1840+ Jackson Co., Mississippi).    Both owned land on Kirby’s Creek.   Cordell’s birthdate (1758) appears quite different from William Hogan’s children - James Hogan (ca1728), William Griffin Hogan (ca1730), and Shadrach Hogan (ca1735).  Because of this, the relationship between William Hogan and Cordell Hogan is uncertain.   For more details, see Cordell Hogan’s section in this review.  

 

Evidence favors our subject William Hogan lived in Northampton County, North Carolina.   William Hogan “II” (ca1705) signed his name “WH” or “H” or “h,” and not with a full signature.   “William Hogan” who appears in Anson County records is either William Griffin Hogan (1730 – 1783) without “Griffin,” or William Hogan (1750-1827) – son of James Hogan (+1728-1793) + wife Silence, or William Hogan (~1760), son of Shadrach Hogan, or William Hogan (1760 to 1836) of Fairfield & Kershaw Counties, South Carolina – son of William Griffin Hogan (ca1730) .     

 

His son - William Griffin Hogan has a compete full signature in 15 July 1755 Halifax County, Va.  A second signature needs review.  William Griffin Hogan’s two brothers - James Hogan and Shadrack Hogan signed their full name. 

 

William Hogan’s first record begins in 1734 when William Hogan is appointed an Overseer for a road in Brunswick County.  Over time, Brunswick County boundaries underwent many changes.

  

In 1746, Lunenburg County broke away from Brunswick County. 

In 1752, Halifax County was established from Lunenburg County

In 1766/67, Pittsylvania County was established from Halifax County

 

These changes account for Hogan records being in so many counties.  Later, William Hogan “II” purchased land on the north side of the Dan River near where it dips into North Carolina.  Records mention Cane Creek which empties into the Dan River on the north side of today’s Danville, Pittsylvania County, Virginia.   Hogans Creek is on the south side of Dan River, south of Danville and slightly over the state line in today’s Caswell County, North Carolina.  William Hogan surveyed a road on the north side of Dan River from Sandy River (west) to Double Creek (east), with both creeks emptying into the Dan River.  Double Creek empties into the Dan River in today’s Halifax County 12 miles east and slightly north of Danville.

 

              William Hogan moved to South Carolina before 1750, and then returned to Halifax County, Virginia.  After this, William Hogan appears in Northampton County, North Carolina.  His last record is 1778 in Northampton County.   No will or estate administration has been found. 

 

Details for William Hogan “II” + (? Sarah Sullivan -?) + Ann __

Both Northampton and Anson County, NC records

 are included to review every William Hogan.

Craven was one of first three counties established in 1706 by its proprietors and was discontinued by 1769.   It is NOT Craven County, North Carolina.  Apparently, South Carolina’s early Craven covered as much as 2/3 of the existing colony.  The South Carolina William Hogan is William Hogan “II.”    The next reference indicates William Hogan returned to Virginia.

 

1752 July 21 - Halifax County, Virginia: “William Hogon” of Halifax County deeded to Hance Hendrick of Amelia County for 20 pounds, 140 acres on Dan River, granted to him by patent 5 April 1748, being the lower part, extending to a run called Hogons CreekAll house, woods, orchards, etc.  Signed: William Hogan – his “WH”.  No Witnesses.  Recorded 21 July 1752.

              Notice that there are two William Hogans here - William Hogan the grantor and William Griffin Hogan the witness.  One signs with his full name.

 

A later deed from Hance Hendrick to George Lumkin in 1766 stated land to be at the mouth of Hendrick's Spring Branch, 75 pounds, 354 acres on the long branch of Cain Creek which was granted by Patent to James Terry and by him conveyed by deed to said Jeremiah Terry....to corner of William Hogans....  Witnesses: Jno.

(Not our subject) 1767 Pittsylvania County, Virginia Tithables: James Hogin and William Hogin - 2 tithes, land 100 (acres).   Believe these two Hogans are sons of James Hogan (~1728) + Silence Hogan and in 1767 both have reached age 16.    

 

(Not our subject) 1771 July 9 - Anson County, North Carolina: Grand Jury to wit - Thomas Dockery foreman and Jury includes William Hogan.

Anson County Inferior Court Minutes – familysearch.org, image 59/661, page 60

 

              This court house record is confusing.  This shows at least two William Hogans in Anson County – William Griffin Hogan (son) and another who is simply “William Hogan.”   Other Anson County records specifically for “William Hogan” are either William Griffin Hogan or William Hogan (1750-1827), son of James Hogan (1728-1796) + wife Silence Hogan.  He can’t be William Griffin Hogan’s son William Hogan (ca1760) or Shadrach Hogan’s son William Hogan (ca1765), until either one was an adult.     

 

1771 December 2 – Northampton County, North Carolina: Indenture – William Brown of Northampton Co. to William Hogan of same.  Fifty pounds.  150 acres which was part of a 520 acre patent to Robert Smelly in 1745, on north side of Kirby’s Creek, joining William Phillips, Masses(?)

This date is old calendar style, whereby the year changed about March 25 or so, but this calendar is not so simple.  A converted date might look like January 16, 1772/73, if there was no rearrangement of days.

Cannot tell if these are their own signatures or someone placing their names on the petition.  William Hogan could be the son of William Griffin Hogan.   William Hogan (1750), son of James Hogan (ca1728) is already in earliest Kentucky.

              Our subject here – William Hogan (ca1705) would be roughly the age 73 and he is too old to be buying land.        

      

(Part C) - Children of William Hogan “II” + (? Sarah Sullivan?):

(I). William Griffin Hogan + wife Hannah: Children are (1) to (3)  

 

 (I). William Griffin Hogan (~1730 to 1783 Anson County, North Carolina), son of William Hogan “II” + (Sarah Sullivan?), married about 1749 to Hannah, maiden name unknown.   She first appears on his estate administration.   William Griffin Hogan and his brother Shadrack Hogan moved to Anson County about 1763; brother James Hogan about 1770.     The three brothers lived near one-another on Rocky River which empties into the Pee Dee River.  In 1778, a portion of the north bank of Rocky River became the new Montgomery County where his brother Shadrack Hogan was living.   

 

After William Griffin Hogan, died, Hannah Hogan married 2nd to Joshua Davis.   1788 and 1792 deeds define Hannah’s and her children inheritance.  She received 1/3 of lands which was 65 acres.  Inheritance lands therefore amounted to about 200 acres, indicating four heirs or children received about 35 acres each, as happened with son James.   Other than son James Hogan, names of the other three are a problem since the estate administration does not help.  However, James Hogan’s 1790 US Census of Fairfield County, South Carolina shows him living next to William Hogan, who is likely his brother.   This is census did not use an alphabetical listing.  William Hogan’s American Revolution pension application mentions an older brother named James.   The remaining two inheritance children/heirs have not been identified.   

 

1755 July 15 - Halifax County, Virginia:  William Hogan of Halifax County deeded to Hans Hendrick of same county, for 20 pounds...294 acres between said Hendricks upper line and James Hogan's lower line, it be the plantation whereon the said William Hogan lived in Halifax County on the North side of Dan River and is part of 294 acres granted said William Hogan by patent 1748.  Witnesses: Wm. Wynne, Wm. Astin – his W, Wm. Grifen Hogan.  Signed: William Hogan - his “x.”  Returned 17 July 1755.

 

       William Griffin Hogan’s signature appears to be a full signature, not some form of “WH” or “h.

July Court 1774.   (DB K/144, image 144/752) 

 

              John Hogan is a surprise and his parents need to be determined.  Shadrack Hogan “I” had a son named John Hogan, who was born ~1766 based on his 1850 US Census.  This last John Hogan is too young for our record above and therefore discounts Shad Hogan as the father.  More discussion and details in the James + Silence Hogan chapter.

Interesting….  If one follows to Pee Dee River downstream, it exits through South Carolina.   These Hogans used this river to migrate to South Carolina or to move back and forth.  Montgomery County Courthouse records burned in a fire, which includes deeds and minutes.   Montgomery County, North Carolina was established 1778 from Anson County.   Anson County deed indexes do not show William Hogan and William Griffin Hogan selling any of these lands.  Other administrative records suggest otherwise, but nothing more can be found.   Grantor deeds are useful because they include a grantor signature and sometimes a wife’s name.

(Part D) James Hogan (~1757 - ~1795) and William Hogan (1760 – 1836)

Sons of William Griffin Hogan (~1730 – 1783) + Hannah: listed as (1) & (2)

 

(1). James Hogan (~1757 to ~1795), is a son of William Griffin Hogan, with evidence in deeds which follow.   He likely served in the American Revolution from South Carolina where there are three soldiers records for James Hogan.   Cannot determine which or if any record belongs to him.   

 

Warning:  This James Hogan is extremely easy to confuse with an earlier James Hogan “II” (~1752 to 1811 Garrard County, Kentucky, son of James Hogan “I” and wife Silence of Anson County.  James Hogan “II” did live earlier in Anson County and had a son – James Hogan “III”, born roughly ca1780 who lived in Scott County, Kentucky after 1807.   James Hogan “III” is too young to be our subject here.    Also, there can be confusion with another James Hoggan (born before 1755) in 1797 and 1800 US Census of Montgomery County, North Carolina.     

 

1784 October 23 – Anson County, North Carolina:  Indenture from “James Hoggan, Jun.” of the District of Camden, South Carolina deeds to Henry Player of Montgomery County, North Carolina for 75 pounds, land in Anson County on south side of Rocky River on the branch of said River…to Walter Gibson’s line then corner, being a tract of land granted to the said “James Hoggan” by a grant bearing date 24 October 1782.   Signed: “James Hogan.”  Witnesses – James Marshall, James Hoggan, Elijah Hoggan. (Anson County DB 4/274)  

 

It looks like our subject James Hogan went to South Carolina.   County records separate two adult persons with the same name with Senior (older) and Junior (younger).   They don’t have to be related or even father-son.   When the oldest moves away or dies, then the youngest “junior” should become senior or more likely junior ceases to be used.   In this 1784 case, James Hogan, Senior “I” (~1728 to 1793 Anson Co.) is the one here who married Silence __.   His son James Hogan “II” was already living in Garrard County, Kentucky.  As a result, our subject here becomes James Hogan, Junior.

 

1788 July 21 -Anson County, North Carolina: Indenture between Joshua Davis of Anson County and James Hogan, Jr. of South Carolina (not more specific) in consideration of the right of Hannah Davis’ third which she was entitled to by law, do give, grant, sell unto Joshua Davis, his husband part of a certain tract where-on William Hogan, deceased, formerly lived.   Beginning on Rocky River near the mouth of a branch...corner is an old Patent running with the old line…. 65 acres.   Signed – James Hogan (seal).  Witnesses -Edmond Lilly, Junior, William Marshall, James Marshall.  Entered Anson County January 1789 Court by Oath of William Marshall.   (DB B2/108)

1792 January 19 – Anson County, North Carolina: Indenture from James Hogan of the County of Farefield (Fairfield) in South Carolina and Joshua Davis of Anson County for 100 pounds money, 100 acres, a certain tract of land on the south side of Rocky River, beginning on the bank of Rocky River at the end of William Griffins, up various courses of the river.   Signed: James Hogan (seal) and Joshua Davis, his x.  Witnesses - James Ryles, Elijah Hogan.  Anson County July Court 1792, Proved in open court by Elijah Hogan.  (DB C2/58)

 

              Elijah Hogan is the son of James and Silence Hogan.  James Ryle married Elizabeth Hogan, sister to Elijah Hogan.   Joshua Davis married Hannah Hogan, widow of William Griffin Hogan.  Next, the 1800 US Census of South Carolina shows James Hogan is missing, with only Nancy Hogan, (presumed wife of James Hogan deceased), being named.

(2).  William Hogan (9 September 1760 to 1836), son of William Griffin Hogan + Hanna __, married Jemimah Sanders.  He was born in South Carolina in 1860, likely went back to Anson County, North Carolina with his parents before returning to South Carolina on or before 1780.     

 

William Hogan (1760-1836) was in the Am. Revolution from Fairfield District/County, South Carolina.  Wife mentioned is Jemimah Sanders.   Pension mentions older brother James Hogan and William claims he was born in South Carolina.  Surviving children in 1855 record are Sanders S. Hogan and Jemimah Hogan, and Jemimah Sanders, a sister to Sanders S. Hogan.  Sanders Hogan’s middle name may be Samuel.   This record misses son - Lewis Hogan who was already deceased by 1855.

South Carolina State Archives and Library, online.

 

1780 to 1782 – District of Fairfield, South Carolina - abstracted:  William Hogan filed an American Revolutionary War Pension Application in the District of Fairfield, South Carolina on 2 November 1832.   William Hogan, a resident of Kershaw County, SC, aged 72 years.  Born in South Carolina “not far from Chucaw Hill on the Pee Dee River on 9 September 1760.   His father (unnamed) had all his children’s ages set down on paper which is now in possession James Hogan, William Hogan’s older brother.    When called into service, he was living on the Wateree in Fairfield District (1780), about five miles from Winnsborough east.  Lived there after the Revolutionary War until about twenty years ago (1812), then moved to Sandy Run in Kershaw District; lived there about five years (until 1817), then moved to Twenty-Five Mile Creek in Kershaw District, has lived there and with two or three or four miles of that place ever since.  Now lives on Bear Creek near Twenty-Five Mile Creek in Kershaw District.  

 

       In his first tour of military duty, he volunteered in Captain Woodward’s Company, believes Philip Redford was first Lieutenant and John Milling commanded as Captain Woodward did not go and believes John Winn commanded the Regiment and was along.  Began at Winnsborough (now Fairfield Court House) marched to Captain Tunmen in the fork between Saluda and Broad River called the Dutch Fork; went next after a body of Tories.  Were out two weeks on this tour, which preceded the next tour to Florida.   Here, Capt. John Woodward commanded the company in an expedition under Captain John Graves.   Marched through Augusta and on to the St. Mary River.  A dispute arose among the officers who was entitled to command.  Col. Winn and 500 men were sent on to the St. John’s River but were prevented by the bridges being taken away by the enemy.  The object of the expedition was to take (St.) Augustine (Spanish East Florida).   Encamped some time on the St. Mary’s (Georgia – Florida boundary).   Col. Winn in his return to the St. Mary met with McGirt and party of Indians.  Took no prisoners.    Troops became very sickly and a great many died of the flux.  Was three months and six days on this tour.   

 

       The next tour was under General Sumpter when he took the Congaree Fort also called Mcqualls.   Captain John Woodward had resigned and one John Miles Hill whose father had been hung by the British had the command of the company.   This led to the Battle of Eutaw (Sept. 7, 1781).   

 

       The next tour went to Monks Corner between Orangeburg and Charleston.  William Hogan was elected first lieutenant in Capt. John Woodward’s old company, then commanded by Capt. Bethany and was drafted.   Was placed under the command of Captain Cook.  Marched to Ancuris place on the Congaree, joined other companies who become part of Battle of Biggins Bridge.   Took eleven prisoners, and went on the big church near Monks Corner (Apr. 14, 1780) where a party of British were posted.   They all fled and then went to Thompson’s plantation.  Gen. Marion joined by this time, troops lay at Thompson for some time and then was discharged at Thompsons.  Was out on this tour one month.  

 

Next tour was to Saltlatcher (Battle of Salkehatchie), S.C. March 8, 1780).  General Marion was there, Col Richardson, and Col. Thomson.  This wasn’t long before Battle of Eutaw.    Stayed there three months until discharged.   Next tour was at the Battle of Orangeburg, South Carolina on 11 May 1781 and stayed there three months until discharged.  Deponent is sure that he served 6 or 7 months as a First Lieutenant.

Early Records of Georgia: Wilkes County, by Grace Gilliam Davidson, page 48, Folio 247. 

 

              Griffin Hogan married Mary Gibson, confirmed in his 1801 deed to William Hogan.  Who Elizabeth Gibson married is unclear, but likely a son of Shadrach Hogan “I.”  A big-time question arises on wife Judah’s maiden name.   

 

1790 US Census of Rutherford County, North Carolina: Shadrach Hogan – 3 males <16, 2 males 16+, 4 females.

 

              This census helps us to possibly estimate the maximum size of his family in 1790.  If the census shows a single family, Shadrach Hogan possibly had up to 4 sons and 3 daughters.  If this is the case; we are missing a number of his children.

(Part F). William Hogan, son of Shadrach Hogan “I” (ca1735 to about 1802): (1), (2), etc.

 

(1). William Hogan (born ca1765 to 1806 Lincoln County, Georgia), son of Shadrach Hogan, married Sarah Curry (~1771/1780 – 1840+).   After William Hogan died, his wife Sarah Curry Hogan had young children to take care and her estate continued to grow into the 1840’s.   Estate record, so far found, names only one child who required guardianship - Sylvanus Hogan.  How and why the son James Hogan wasn’t included in the guardianship is not understood.   William Hogan appears to be the one listed in Austin’s “Georgians” book with his children. 

 

Austin’s write-up on William Hogan and wife Sarah Curry named the following children: (1a). *James Robert Hogan, b. 1800, d. 1834 m Elizabeth Huguley., (2a). Griffin Hogan m Mary Gibson, (3a) John Hogan, listed 1820 Jackson Co. Census, (4a) William Hogan, Jr., settled at Hogansville, Ga., (5a). Shadrach Hogan, m. Elizabeth Gibson, (6a) *Sarah Elizabeth Hogan m. Allen K. Curry, moved to Ala.  

The Georgians, Genealogies of Pioneer Settlers, Jeannett Holland Austin, 1984, page 172.  To the reader - this write-up is at end of this review. 

 

        From Austin: “William Hogan of Lincoln Co. (Georgia) married Sarah Helen Curry, buried Hogan Family Cemetery near old Agnes School suite, Lincoln Co. Ga.”  Probate date was 3 March 1806 in Lincoln County, Georgia.  His Bible is reported filed Georgia State Archives, Atlanta, Ga.

The Georgians, Genealogies of Pioneer Settlers, Jeannett Holland Austin, 1984, page 172. 

 

              Be careful with this report.   The reported Bible is not available for review and might refer to someone else – J. MurphyAt this time, only two children on his list can be confirmed and are labeled above with a star *.  Middle names should be suspect at this time.  One of the problems with Georgia research include little information survived for the years up to 1795.

(Part J) - Children of Shadrach Hogan “II” and Frances Dale: (a1) to (a5):

 

(a1). William Hogan (5 August 1804 – 6 May 1861 Hogansville, Troup Co., Ga and buried at Hogan Family Cemetery, Troup Co. per findagrave.com).  He married 1st to Mary __ (28 July 1803 to 1837 Hogan Family Cemetery) and 2nd on 23 November 1837 in Troup County (county record) to Susanna Belcher (15 February 1818 to 17 Oct. 1906, buried same cemetery).   Also, in same cemetery are daughters - Amanda Hogan Hayes (20 September 1845 to 21 June 1913) and Francis Hogan Hurst (Apr. 1831 to April 1880).  The primary clue connecting this William Hogan to Shadrach Hogan “II” is the name “Shadrach” given to his son and later in grandchildren.

 

William founded the small town of Hogansville, Troup County, Georgia, which in recent years has become a tourist attraction.   In 1854, he became legal guardian of Mary Ann Hogan who is noted on his 1850 census.   Later in December of the same year, Mary Ann Hogan married John J. Pullen.    Given the 1854 guardianship paper, a question is raised on what this means in relationship.  In 1861 when William Hogan died, J.J. Pullen and others cosigned to have Susanna Hogan made guardian of their youngest children.  

 

(likely) 1830 US Census of Coweta County, Georgia: William Hogan, 2 males + 1 female 0-4, 1 male + 1 female 20-29, slaves.    Census shows wife’s age in same category as husband.  Later census records show a wife much younger.

Hogans with Undetermined Jackson County, Ga, Parents: (1b) - (6b)

 

       There are a number of Jackson County, Georgia marriages from 1827 to 1835 whose Hogan parents are not known.  Hogan parents for these brides could be not only be Shadrach Hogan “II,” but must include John Hogan (~1766 – 1840+) and his wife Frances, and possibly someone else unexpected.    Specific marriage dates are from Georgia Compiled Marriages 1754-1850 on ancestry.com.  

 

(a?). Elizabeth Hawkins Hogans (1798-1882) or (1810-1880).  Betsey Hogan married 30 January 1827 Jackson County to Benjamin Abner or Alner.  There is another record - Elizabeth Hogan married in 20 January 1835 Jackson County to William Walraven (county record). 

(a?). Mary Hogan married in 1835 Jackson County to Paris P. Casey (marriage record not found).     

(a?). Sarah Elizabeth Hogan (~1805-1874).

(a?) Nancy Hogan (~1805-1831) married in 1828 Jackson County to Charles McKenny, Jr.  There is another record – Nancy Hogan married 7 July 1833 Jackson County to John Moore.

 

1830 US Census of Jackson County, Georgia: Chas. McKenney 1 female 0-4, 1 female 20-29, 1 male 40-49, and slaves.

1840 US Census of Jackson County, Georgia: John Moore, 1 male 5-9, 1 female 30-39, 1 male 40-49.

 

(Part K) – (continued) Thomas Hogan, possible son of Shadrach Hogan “I” (~1734 to ~1802): as (4)

 

(4). Thomas Hogan (possibly fits here): Uncertain, but possibly married Elizabeth Gibson, daughter of Walter Gibson (died 1787 Wilkes Co. Ga.).  A real puzzler.  A record exists for Thomas Hogan (died 1811 Columbia Co., Ga.) who married Mary.    Another lived in Warren County.  Details for both are given here:

 

1778 July 8 – Anson County, NC:  Thomas Hogan enters 100 acres of land in Anson County lying on the south side of Rocky River joining Walter Gibson’s line including improvement made by James Hogans.

Anson County Land Entries 1778-1795 – familysearch.org, image 92/338, page 125.  

 

1787 June 4 – Georgia Land Entry:  By the Court of Justices of the County of Richmond, to John Walton, County Surveyor for the said County, you are hereby authorized and required to administer and lay out…unto Thomas Hogan a tract of land which shall contain 250 acres in the said County of Richmond, located on the waters of Little River on his own Head Rights with 1 black….   Court his 4 day of June 1787.

Georgia, Head Right and Bounty Land Records, 1783-1909, image 26/404, familysearch.org   

 

1787 October 15 – Wilkes County, Georgia:  Will of Walter Gibson.   All estate to wife Judah.  To daughter Mary Hogan, the tract of 200 acres on which I live, cattle, household goods and Hymn book and Bible.  To daughter Patsy Davis, feather bed and cattle.  To daughter Elizabeth Hogan, bay horse.  Five pounds money son Sylvanus Gibson and son-in-law Griffin Hogan.  Probated 26 November 1791.  Witnesses – Thos. Stephen, William Johnson

Early Records of Georgia: Wilkes County, by Grace Gilliam Davidson, page 48, Folio 247. 

 

Griffin Hogan married Mary Gibson, confirmed in his 1801 deed to William Hogan.  Who Elizabeth Gibson married is unclear, but could include a son of Shadrach Hogan “I.”  Could he be Thomas Hogan?

              Notice Elizabeth Hogan who appears to be a widow in 1790.  This Elizabeth Hogan needs to have her husband identified.  Thomas Hogan would not be this husband since he was living in the 1800.

       This may not be the same Thomas Hogan found on the 1790 Georgia reconstructed census.

 

1800 August 1 – Wilkes County, Ga: Silvanus Gibson, Griffen Hogan – E__ of Walter Gibson, deceased came in agreeably to process and produced two (__), one from Thomas Hogan, and the other Nat’l Davis for Legacies in full.    (Wilkes County, Ga. Minutes for date, familysearch.org) 

 

Problem reading this 1800 entry is a worn three letter abbreviation E__ and a badly hand-written word (__).     E__ could mean Executors.  Nothing exactly fits with (__), but might mean “returns.”  The name “Thomas Hogan” is a surprise and found for the first time.

 

What is this 1800 entry saying?   The probate of Walter Gibson, deceased was back 1787.   Sounds like two people – Thomas Hogan and Nathaniel Davis did not receive will bequeaths.  Patsy (Gibson) Davis likely married Nathaniel Davis.  We have been puzzling over who Elizabeth Hogan married.  Could her husband be Thomas Hogan, and is he a son of Shadrach Hogan “I” ?

 

There is a Thomas Hogan in the 1790 Georgia reconstructed census, who lived in Richmond County, Georgia, that part which become Colombia County the same year.    Richmond County is not too far away from Wilkes.  In 1811 Colombia County, Georgia, this Thomas Hogan, now deceased, has an estate administration and his widow was Mary Hogan.  This reviewer – J. Murphy currently thinks Columbia’s Thomas Hogan is the wrong one.   The correct Thomas Hogan’s wife should be Elizabeth Gibson and not Mary __.   In addition, the children’s first names for Columbia’s Hogans show no naming patterns that would relate to our subject.  The following Thomas Hogan of Warren County might be another possibility, but is proving difficult to track.

1811 August 18 – Columbia County, Georgia:  Letters of administration for Mary Hogan (location blotted), Georgia.  By the Court of Ordinary for the County of Columbia -- Mary Hogan relict of Thomas Hogan, deceased, became Administrix of his estate.  In 18 January 1811/12, the estate was divided to include (1) Prudence Hogan, wife of John Garrett, and Mary Hogan became guardian in trust for Edward H. Hogan; (2) for Tabitha Hogan, a minor, (3) for Morgan Hogan, a minor; Edny Hogan, a minor.

(Part L – Children of William Hogan “II” (ca1705 to ?) + (?-Sarah Sullivan-?) - continued

James Hogan “I” (~1728 – 1793) + Silence __.  3rd Generation - Listed as (III)

(III). James Hogan “I” (~1728 to 1793 Anson Co., NC) married Silence __, possibly Lane, (~1730 to 1803 Anson Co. NC).  Their children are, per 1793 will: (i). William Hogan (1750), (ii). James Hogan “II, (~1752)” (iii). Griffin Hogan (~1755), (iv-?) John Hogan (~1757 to before 1793) - not in 1793 will, (v). Edmund Hogan (1762), (vi). Elijah Hogan (1760s), (vii). Elizabeth Ryle (1760), (viii). Nannie Lee (~1762), (ix) Sarah Ryle (1769), (x). David Hogan (1773).   None of their children were named Thomas.  Of these children, only Griffin Hogan will be detailed here.   Details for the others are in a separate James & Silence Hogan chapter. 

James Hogan “I” (~1728 – 1793) named his son Griffin Hogan in his 1793 will.  One question keeps surfacing.  Could there be two Griffin Hogans, with one being a son of Shadrach Hogan “I” ?   The 1787 Will of Walter Gibson forces this question.   So far, there seems to be only Griffin Hogan making records.       

 

(Part M) - Subject here is their son - Griffin Hogan (~1755 to 1828) + wife Mary Gibson.

 

Griffin Hogan (~1755 to July 1827 Wilkinson County, Ga.) is a better fit as a son of James Hogan (~1728 to 1793) + Silence Lane -? (~1730 to 1803 Anson County, North Carolina), rather than Shadrach Hogan “I.”  He is listed as a son in his father’s will (James Hogan’s 1811 Garrard County, Kentucky).  Griffin married Mary Gibson, daughter of Walter Gibson and by 1787 was living in Georgia. 

 

1774 February 24 – Anson County, NC: Indenture from William Brooks to Griffen Hogon, both of Anson County, for 25 pounds money, parcel or land on south side Rocky Creek below Richardson Creek, 100 acres including a small improvement.   Signed: William Brooks.  Witnesses: James Hogon, Jr. Shadrach Hogan, Wm. Griffin Hogan.  Entered July Court 1774 (DB K/137).  

 

There is no deed from Griffin Hogan selling this land.  Notice the witness names.   The “James Hogan, Jr.” in this deed appears to be the son of James + Silence Hogan of Anson County, North Carolina.

 

1787 October 15 – Wilkes County, Georgia:  Will of Walter Gibson.   All estate to wife Judah.  To daughter Mary Hogan, the tract of 200 acres on which I live, cattle, household goods and Hymn book and Bible.  To daughter Patsy Davis, feather bed and cattle.  To daughter Elizabeth Hogan Hogan, bay horse.  Five pounds money son Sylvanus Gibson and son-in-law Griffin Hogan.  Probated 26 November 1791.  Witnesses – Thos. Stephen, William Johnson

Early Records of Georgia: Wilkes County, by Grace Gilliam Davidson, page 48, Folio 247. 

 

              Mary Gibson married Griffin Hogan and is confirmed with their 1801 deed noted below.  Not sure to whom Elizabeth Gibson Hogan married.   Sylvanus Gibson, Sr. has his estate administration in 9 August 1805 in Wilkes County, Georgia.  Sylvanus Gibson (Jr.) served in the War of 1812, 18th Regiment under Col. Henderson of Wilkes County, Georgia.  He was described as 6’ 1 ¾’ tall, light hair and had gray eyes.*

              Elijah Hogan appears on Griffin Hogan’s estate administration, which is our best clue that he is a son.  Also, “The Georgians, Genealogies of Pioneer Settlers,” by Jeannett Holland Austin, names three additional sons – Edmund Hogan, William Hogan, and James Hogan.  The last two lived in early Jefferson County, Georgia.   Austin’s source is “handed down recollections” from Elijah Hogan’s line.  So far, nothing has been found to disprove Elijah’s brothers and sisters as referenced by Austin.   

 

(1a). Edmund Hogan / Brigadier General Edmund Hogan (ca1780 to 31 May 1828 Little Rock, Pulaski Co. Arkansas) and married Lucinda _ per two of his grantor deeds.  Will or estate administration was not found.  Only one son was named in Lucinda Hogan’s 4 January 1845 Pulaski County, Arkansas Will – Woodson B. Hogan, who was executor.  W. B. Hogan become guardian for Robert G. Hogan, a minor, during the probate.  One must keep him separate from two other Edmund Hogans, one born 1761 - son of James + Silence Hogan, and another migrating from northeastern Tennessee into very early northwestern Stewart County, Tennessee.

 

              Edmund Hogan (1780? to 31 May 1828) was the 1st Sheriff of Wilkinson County, Georgia in 1806*.  He soon moved to Pulaski County, Georgia, where he is mentioned becoming state legislator and a Lieutenant Colonel in the Georgia militia (cannot confirm).**  Wikipedia adds further confusion by indicating he lived next in Cape Girardeau District, Louisiana/Missouri Territory from 1798 to 1811.   Contrary to this, Edmund was actually taxed in 1809 and 1810 in Pulaski County, Georgia.   The Cape Girardeau Hogan is not our subject.

Hogan next served 90 days service in the Missouri Ranger Companies during the War of 1812, and on 31 December 1814, was appointed Captain of the 1st Company. 2nd Battalion, 7th Regiment of Missouri Territorial Militia.   He lived in Arkansas County, Territory of Missouri in 1814 and began operating a ferry across the Arkansas River.  By 1820, he sold it and was already living in Crystal Hill, Pulaski County, Arkansas.   On 21 March 1821, President James Monroe issued an executive order appointing him as a Brigadier General of the Arkansas militia.**   Hogan was credited with “considerable force of character” which helped him handle difficult people and situations.   He had several political contests for a seat on the Territorial Legislative Council and finally won in 1827.  On 31 May 1828, Hogan was in a fight with a political rival and was stabbed to death.

(2a). Elijah Hogan / Major Elijah Hogan (1780/90 to 3 April 1839) + Sarah Rye + Mary __.   Sarah Rye’s maiden name is from Austin.*   They lived in Wilkinson County, Georgia.  Elijah must be kept separate from an earlier Elijah Hogan, son of James + Silence Hogan.  Until 1806, Fort Wilkinson was the only defense against Indian attacks.  Davidson mentions a tradition that the home of Major Elijah Hogan was another place where nearby families would go for safety during Indian alarms.   Cannot confirm his military title – J.

              Jefferson County Deeds exist from 1790-1798 and 1803-1808; with the next being 1865+.   This William Hogan of Jefferson Co. Ga., might seem be a good fit to Lincoln County’s William Hogan (ca1760-1806) who surfaces in 1800.  However, wife’s name in Jefferson County is Betsy and not Sarah (Sarah Curry Hogan) or Mary in Lincoln County, Ga.

1756 February 26-27 – Anson County, North Carolina: David White of Anson County to John Hoggan, for 5 pence lease and 18 pounds release money, 270 acres on south side Twelve Mile Creek.  Signed -David White.  Witnesses – Henry White, Jas. Linn, Stephen White.

              Twelve Mile Creek has its headwaters in today’s Union County, North Carolina and is near the small town of Waxhaw.  This Creek empties into the Catawba River in South Carolina.  It is very possible that Hoggan’s land was actually in South Carolina.    In the American Revolution, a road connected Waxhaw with central North Carolina and other South Carolina roads.   This track which was used by militia troops from both sides.     This land is nowhere near Rocky Creek in Anson County.   This John Hogan does not appear again in Anson County records.

 

1772 April 8 – surveyed for John Hogan 300 acres on McBee’s Fork of Thicketty Creek between Vardy McBee’s and Hannah’s Cabin…P. William Sims, John Nuckols, Richard Nuckols, S.C. Bearers.  Grant issued 15 May 1772.

File no. 443, North Carolina Grant no. 59, Book 22, page 16; from North Carolina Land Grants in South Carolina, Brent H. Holcomb, 1980.   

 

This 1772 Land grant in today’s Cherokee County, South Carolina.

 

              “At this time (about 1st July 1780), (Capt. Patrick) Moore (British Military) had command of Fort Anderson, or Thicketty Fort, as it was more generally called, situated a quarter of mile north of Goucher Creek, and two and half miles above the mouth of this small water-course, which empties into Thicketty Creek, a western tributary of Broad River, uniting with that stream a few miles above its junction with Pacolet.  It was a strong fortress, built a few years before for defense against the Cherokees, and was surrounded by a strong abatis, well fitted for a vigorous defense.  It became a great place of resort and protection for Tories (English troops and their Loyalist support) parties.  They would sally forth from Thicketty Fort, and plunder Whig (American Patriot) families in every direction – so that women and children were often left without clothing, shoes, bread, mead, or salt.” 

Kings Mountain and Its Heroes, Lyman C. Draper, 1881/1996, page 86.

 

              …”South Carolina, during the period of 1780-81, was without a civil government, Governor Rutledge having been compelled to retire from the State, and the Lieutenant Governor and some of the Council were prisoners of war.”

This could be our subject, and he may have fought with Patriot Capt. Vardy McBee (1740/45 – 1786) and his son Silas McBee (1765 – 1845) during the Revolution.  Both McBees fought to victory at the Battle of Kings Mountain (South Carolina) on 7 October 1780.   Earlier in South Carolina, Patriots often fought in irregular bands or militia without official sanctioning.

 

(Part Q) - Unplaced Hogans - Cordell Hogan / Cardell Hogan (1758 to 1840+ Jackson Co., Mississippi) + reported wife Charity Cherry. 

 

Cordell Hogan/Cardell Hogan (1758 Northampton Co. NC to 1830+ Jackson Co., Mississippi) + reported wife Charity Cherry.   His parents are uncertain.  The 1775 deed below is a clue connecting Cardell Hogan to William and Ann Hogan in the Northampton County, NC.  Obedience Hogan, daughter of William Hogan “I,” married Edward Megraugh and lived in Northampton County in 1742.  William Hogan continues to make deed records in this county until 1778.  Another clue is that both William Hogan and Cordell Hogan owned land on Kirby’s Creek in Northampton County.   However, the problem is that Cordell’s birthdate (1758) appears quite different from William Hogan’s children - James Hogan (ca1728), William Griffin Hogan (ca1730), and Shadrach Hogan (ca1735).  Because of this, the relationship between William Hogan and Cordell Hogan is uncertain.   About 1790, Cordell Hogan moved to South Carolina.

 

From Ancestry Message Board - lemc44, 14 April 2009, re: Cordell Hogan:  Known children of  Cordell Hogan and Charity Cherry  are (1a) Lemuel Hogan (~1782), (2a) Lewis Hogan (~1784), (3a) John Benjamin Hogan of Mobile Ala (1780/90) married Sarah Vincent (1788 Ga), (4a) William Hogan (1785-1794), (5a) Shadrack Hogan (1786-1790 to >1860 Miss),+ wife Mary D.   lemc44 is descended from Shadrach Hogan.   

 

In confirming these children, a Lewis Hogan (1780 – 1847), who lived in Kershaw County, South Carolina, was found on findagrave.com.   Descendants claim he is the son of William Hogan (1760-1836) and Jemima Sanders Hogan (1762-1836).  More details will be found later.  However, we may not be looking at the right Lewis Hogan.

 

Details about Cardell Hogan (15 January 1758 to 1830+)

 

1755 March 12 - Northampton County, North Carolina:  Deed from William Hogan for __ shillings, to Robert Simpson of Northampton County, NC, two tracts of land in Northampton County: (Tract 1) 50 acres being part of 1720 patent granted to Thomas Turner.  Land lies along old county line to the Cypress Swamp and up the swamp.   (Tract 2) other tract beginning at the old county line and along a line into a wash and to William Hills line, to Cypress Swamp and along Swamp, being part of patent granted Richard Call(?) in 1743.  Dated 12 March 1755.   Signed – William Hogan. His “H” (seal) and Ann Hogan, her “V”.  Witnesses - _ Taylor, Simon Simpson.  Entered Northampton Court August 1755.  (DB 2/222-223)

 

       This deed is important as a Cardell/Cordell Hogan claimed on his Revolutionary War pension application that he was born in Northampton County in 1758.  There appears to be no other Hogans in this county during this era except “William Hogan.”   Just across the county line in Halifax County NC is General James Hogan (died 1781) and his son Lemuel Hogan.  General Hogan is ruled out because only his son Lemuel Hogan received his father’s Revolutionary War Bounty Land granted in Tennessee. To the north is an Edward Hogan in 1764 Lunenburg County, Virginia tax records.  He cannot be better defined at this time.  

 

1778 to 1780/82 – American Revolutionary War Pension filed 1838 for Cardell Hogan of Jackson County, Mississippi.  Information given in 1838 was sent to John B. Hogan of Mobile, Mississippi (his son).  Pension stated Cardell Hogan was born 15 January 1758 in Northampton County, North Carolina.   In Northampton County, NC, he was called to duty.   After the war, he resided in South Carolina in Kershaw District for twenty years, then removed to the State of Mississippi where he has resided ever since.   He served three terms of 6 months each in the Revolutionary War; the first two terms he was drafted and the third he volunteered his first service was under Captain Warner Hart, Major Pace, and Colonel W. Davy who commanded his regiment, the 2nd North Carolina Regiment.   He ended the service on Roanoke River near Halifax he believes in 1778, marched from there to Wilmington and up and down the Pee Dee River…..Third service was in the year 1780 or 1781 and became a Lieutenant under Archer Sheffield, Major Peebles and Colonel William Linton,   Col. Linton was a Continental officer; this tour was on Cape Fear and Nelile? River where they captured about 30 or 40 prisoners and carried them to Brunswick County Jail in Virginia.  Lord Cornwallis was then coming and they __ the prisoners off in fear they would fall into the hands of Cornwallis.   Then in 1782, he volunteered and served 6 months as a Lieutenant under Capt. James Kryer, Major Wm. Horn and Col. Hardy Murphy, they had several skirmishes with Tories but was not wounded.  …he resides in Mississippi near the line between Alabama and Mississippi…in Jackson County.

(Part S) – James Hoggan of Anson Co, NC in 1797 and 1800

And Zachariah Hogan – Some Sightings

 

              There is a James Hogan in Anson and Montgomery Counties, North Carolina during 1797 and 1800 and this researcher is unable to place him.  This 1800 census indicates he was age 45+ or born before 1755.   

 

In Montgomery County is a Zachariah Hogan who is a brother to Col. John Hogan (~1740-1810) of Orange County, North Carolina and is mentioned in the Fauquier County, Virginia Hogan chapter.   From a key source:

 

Posted comment on Montgomery County, North Carolina for Zachariah Hogan (~1750 to after 1810 Montgomery County, NC) had the following children:

(i). Isaiah Hogan (1775/1784) to 1850 Giles County, Tennessee(?)

(ii). William Hogan (1780/90 to 1840-1849 Montgomery County, North Carolina)

(iii). Marmaduke Hogan (1795/1800 to 1860+ Velvet Ridge, White County, Arkansas)
