Family Record and Other Sources
(*) Information is from Mrs. Roy (Gladys) Allumbaugh of Boise, Idaho and is considered a family record. Her source is probably a 1926 letter by B. Frank Allumbaugh, as related by Donna Alumbaugh in her 1981 book, “Allumbaugh and Alumbaugh Family – 1740-1981.” This Allumbaugh source is our only record of the “Wadlaw” or “Wadlau” surname. Details follow in write-up below.
(**) Information is from the Bible of James Morphew (1805) which was in the hands of Harold Morphew, a descendant of James Riley Morphew. This was sent by ? to myself in 1963 and discussed in a letter to Theodore R. Specht, dated 7 January 1964. It was forgotten until kindly relayed by Jerry Specht in his 11/2002 e-mail. This Bible does not give the maiden name for Nancy, wife of William Hogan.
(***) Information is from the Bible of David Allen (born 1804), who married Nancy Hogan (born 1811), courtesy of Helen Bandfield 11/2002). This gives us our best dates.

(I). Our Earliest Family Record for William and Nancy Hogan
Our earliest record comes from Gladys Allumbaugh, Boise, Idaho in 1965, whose source was from some old family papers, probably by B. Frank Allumbaugh of Boise, Idaho in 1926, who wrote:
“Rachel Love, born Maryland, married “William Wadlau (Wadlaw).” Daughter Nancy, born 1779, married William Hogan of Tennessee. Their daughter Rebecca, born 1799 Tennessee, married James Morphew October 1825 Estill County, Kentucky....”
This letter is found in “Allumbaugh-Alumbaugh Family 1740-2001” by Donna Jean Allumbaugh, 2nd Edition, 2003, page 1330. This Allumbaugh source included other family history information which is very accurate.
(II). Comments on the Earliest Years
William Hogan and Nancy Wadlow’s Birth State: William Hogan has presented fascinating puzzles to solve because family records were silent about his origins, his parents, and his earliest years. No family records indicate where William Hogan was born, only that William Hogan was “of Tennessee.” One information source is the 1880 U.S. Census which lists parent’s birth state. These are frequently wrong and require confirmation with other records. The following was found with four of his children who lived long enough to be in the 1880 census records:
Birth Year Father born Mother born
(1) William Hogan “II” (1802/04).......Maryland........Maryland
(2) Nancy (Hogan) Allen (1811).........Tennessee......Mar?l??d, (Maryland.)
(3) Ester (Hogan) Tatum (1822/23)...Kentucky*.......Tennessee*
(4) Humphrey Hogan (1809)..............Tennessee......Maryland.
* information discounted, see census record at end of chapter for reason
Three of four records state Nancy Hogan (1778-1853) was born in Maryland. This is good evidence that Maryland was her birth state. Only two 1880 census records state William Hogan (1777-1827) was born in Tennessee. This is less useful.
Y-DNA Evidence: Y-DNA evidence suggests a 92% chance that William's father was Humphrey Hogan (~1745/50 to 1789/90), who migrated to Tennessee Territory about 1771. There is an 8% chance that the ancestor was further back in time, most likely with the next earlier generation. Details of the Y-DNA test are found in Section 12 – "Y-DNA Results and What They Mean."
Given these y-dna results, William was likely born in today's Sullivan County, Tennessee. His birth year of 1777 predates Middle Tennessee and places him among the earliest children born in Tennessee.
Filling in William Hogan’s earliest years from 1777 to 1800: Speculation now suggests William left his parents when he was between the ages of 14 to 17. This seems to coincide with his mother’s 2nd marriage to William Hines. Instead of migrating westward with his brothers, he turns eastward for unknown reasons. He probably was a drifter before meeting his future wife in ~1798, either Sullivan County, Tennessee, Washington County, Virginia, or some other unidentified location.
Wife Nancy Wadlaw: The search for Nancy Wadlaw's origins can be found in the chapter about Maryland Wadlows. The “Wadlaw” or “Wadlau” surname is thought misspelled and should be “Wadlow.” Even though the Allumbaugh papers state her parents were William Wadlaw + Rachael Love (born Maryland), they still haven’t been identified. There are a handful of William Wadlow records that could her father in both Maryland and in Washington County, Virginia. The problem is that these records so spotty that they might belong to someone else.
Washington Hogan Puzzle: Until recently, Washington Hogan was thought to be a brother of William Hogan. The David Allen Bible states Washington Hogan’s birth date was 1802, making him a son. After William Hogan died in 1826, one could speculate that Washington Hogan assumed the role of male head of this family with his mother, brothers and sisters. In 1834, Washington Hogan died, and his 1834-1835 Putnam County, Indiana probate created much confusion. His “heirs” were mis-interpreted as his children when in fact they were relatives. There is nothing to indicate Washington Hogan married or had any children. Future reviews could change this.
(III). CENSUS RECORD CLUES ON EARLY HOGAN MIGRATION
From 1799 to 1823
U.S. Census records 1850+ give the birth state for the children of William + Nancy Hogan, and are helpful showing Hogan movement from Tennessee to Kentucky.
Rebecca Hogan (1799)........... born Tennessee
William Hogan (1801/04)....... born Tennessee
John W. Hogan (1804/05.........born Virginia (1860 U.S. Census)
Solomon Hogan (1805-1809)..born Kentucky (Information questionable)
Humphrey Hogan (1809/10)...born Kentucky
Nancy Hogan (1811)................born Kentucky
Mahala Hogan (1819/22)........born Kentucky
Hester Hogan (1822/23)..........born Kentucky
These records indicate William Hogan and family exited Tennessee as early as 1803. No location in Tennessee has been found and this is becomes part of the mystery. The birth state for his son John W. Hogan (1804/05) was Virginia, if his 1860 census record can be counted on. This suggests the Hogan family was already on the move away from Tennessee. Surprisingly enough, the only Hogan to be found on the complete Washington County, Virginia personal tax records is a William Hogan for the year of 1805.
(IV). An 1802 Tennessee William Hogan Sighting?
There is a William Hogan recorded on the 1802 Roane County, Tennessee tax list, but not in the next surviving 1805 list. No other county records have been found mentioning him. Roane County was formed from Blount and Knox Counties in 1801. The only other Hogan in the area was a James Hogan from 1797 to 1803 in Blount County and 1806 Roane County. These two Hogans do not appear to intersect.
(V). WILLIAM HOGAN IN 1805 VIRGINIA?
John W. Hogan was born 1804/05 in Virginia, according to his 1860 U.S. Census (courtesy of Cindy Lowe, e-mail 1 April 2004). Furthermore the only Hogan to be listed on Washington County, Virginia personal property taxes was a William Hogan in the tax years of 1804 and 1805. This must be our William Hogan.
(VI). William Hogan in 1810 Knox County, Kentucky
The 1810 U.S. Census of Knox County, Kentucky lists a William Hogan, with data strongly suggesting our subject:
5 males born 1800-<1810
1 female born 1790-<1800
1 male and 1 female born 1765-1784.
A second William Hogan Sr. is listed in the 1810 Knox County Census, who was born ~1757 and died 1827. It is reported that he married 1st to Nancy Wadleigh, 2nd Sarah (Grant) Fullington, and 3rd to Hannah Mayes. The similarity of Wadlow and Wadleigh names is a “show stopper” and is hard to explain. “Wadlow” doesn’t sound like Wadleigh until one understands that Maryland and Virginia Wadlows freely interchanged their surname with “Wadley.” Possibly, Nancy Wadleigh” researchers confused her with our own Nancy Wadlaw/Wadlow. Also, the “Wadleigh” spelling suggests New England origin and is not found in colonial Maryland and Virginia.
No Knox County deeds could be identified belonging to our William Hogan, suggesting he was a renter or transient. Yearly tax records for Knox County from 1800 to 1816 indicate that there were only two William Hogans in the year 1810. The one with one adult male 21+, two horses, and no slaves is likely ours. He does not appear again in the 1811, 1815, and 1816 tax records (1812, 1813, part of 1814 tax records are missing or unreadable). Our William Hogan is found next in 1805 Washington County, Virginia. After that, he surfaces again in 1816 Estill County.
This is the second time that William Hogan was found on a tax record for only a single year. Could this be occupational migration rather than a traditional migration path?
(VII). Hogans in Estill County, Kentucky 1816-1828
1816 – 1827 Estill County, Kentucky tax lists: These begin in 1808 and our William Hogan is recorded yearly beginning 1816 through the year 1827. There appears to be two different tax lists and they are not quite the same in content.
1820 July 18 - Estill County Court: Case of William Richardson versus Samuel Plummer; covenant broken 25 February 1818. The defendant rented Miller’s Old Cave, lying on the north side of North Fork of Kentucky River in a survey of land belonging to Samuel Smith. Plummer was to pay 10 pounds per hundred weight of salt peter as rent and $500 sum if defaulted. The Court determined that the defendant broke his covenant. Witnesses included William Hogan and Thomas Brinegar.
1823 Estill County Tax: William Hogan is listed on the Middle Fork of the Kentucky River with 4 children between ages 4 and 14.
1824 Estill County Tax: William Hogan is listed on the "Middle Fork" with 50 acres with 6 children between 4 and 14 years of age. In 1824, Washington Hogan is recorded with 0 children between 4 years of age and 14 years.
1824 January 17 – Kentucky Land Grant for Estill County: On “17 January 1824, surveyed for William Hogan, 50 acres of land with his improvement on Buffalo Creek...to Washington Hogan marker.”
A survey followed showing a narrow six-sided funnel shaped piece of land, without reference to where the creek may be or where on the creek this land lies. There appears to be two Buffalo Creeks on the South Fork of Kentucky River, as pointed out by Bud Miller (2/2003). First Buffalo Creek is on the present day boundary between Owlsey and Clay Counties, north of Oneida, Clay County, Kentucky. The second is “Lower Buffalo Creek” which has its mouth in present-day Lee County at a landmark called “Lower Buffalo” and runs upstream in a southeast direction for a short distance into northern Oswley County. It is this latter creek that is near the mouth of Elk Creek and general location of the Elk Creek Baptist Church. This is most likely the Hogan location.
1825 Estill County Tax: the children's listing was dropped. In 1825, William is now on Buffalo Creek with two white males over 21 and 1 horse.
1825 July 7 – Estill County Marriage Bond: William Hogan (Jr.) to Hannah Allen.
1825 - 1828 Elk Lick Baptist Church records show Hogans, Allens, Eggers, and Morphews belonged to the Elk Lick Baptist Church near the South Fork, whose records are now available at (http://owsleykyhist.org/elk_lick_baptist_church.htm), compiled by Dr. D. L. Brewer and aided by the Owsley County Kentucky Historical Society. These records are a tiny window into the lives of these people and include:
1825 December 28 – Elk Lick Baptist Church: Nathan Murphy (Morphew) became treasurer
1826 Elk Lick Baptist Church: In 1826, James Agers (Eggers) was a moderator and trustee and Daniel Eggers, Jr. Minister. The Church agreed to receive “experiences” within the church with the help of Brethren which included Nancy Hogan, John Hogan, Humphry Hogan, (and a 2nd) Nancy Hogan on 1 May 1826. D. Allen (David Allen) was in a church squabble in June.
1826 July 29 – Estill County Marriage Bond: John Hogan to Cynthia Eggers on 29 July 1820. Comment: Year was misread and should be 1826.
1826 September 20 – Estill County Marriage Bond: Bond reads “for the sum of 50 pounds to which payment made...James Murphey and William Hogan, between James Murphy and Rebecca Hogan. Signed: William Hogan, 20th day of September 1826.” A previous report of Rebecca Hogan married to James Morphew on 5 October 1825 was not found on last visit.
1826 Estill County Tax: Names are:
Washington Hogan with 1 white adult male over 21 and no horse
William Hogan with 1 white adult male and no horse
Nancy Hogan, 50 acres in Estill County, no adult male and 1 horse.
There is an additional Hogan listed, but can’t read it. It looks like Leneyn or Garyn Hogan. Only the “ym” is clearly written. Probably this is someone reaching age 21 and could be son Solomon or Solomyn Hogan.
1827 Estill County Tax: Washington Hogan is noted on the South Fork of the Kentucky River.
1827 April 1 - Elk Lick Baptist Church: Church licensed Brother William Hogan to the ministry. Jonathan Hogan is on their 1827 records.
1827 May 8 – Estill County Marriage Bond: Nancy Hogan to David Allen. Marriage bond in 8 May 1827, which reads: ...David Allen and John Hogen...sum of fifty pounds...8th day May 1827...marriage shortly intended ...between David Allen and Nancy Hogan. Signed David Allen and John Hogan.
1827 September 1 - Elk Lick Baptist Church: Those leaving the church (dismissed) by letter (usually moved away): James and Sary (Sarah) Agers (Eggers) - his wife; John and Cynthia Hogan - his wife
Robert Rose (his “x”) Nancy Hogan
Washington Hogan Washington Hogan
William Hogan William Hogan
ADDITIONAL HEIRS SIGN THE LAND SALE
John Hogan and James Morphew
Estill County Legal Document for John Hogan and James Merphew (hard to read):
I, Robert Clark, clerk of the court from Nancy Hogan and other to Jacob Bowman was produced to him in my office on 11 March 1828 and do acknowledge by William Hogan and Washington Hogan to be their act and deed and on the same day was proven by the oath of said Washington and William Hogan to be the act and deed of the said Nancy Hogan, David Allen, Humphry Hogan, Solomon Hogan, John Hogan and James Murphew for the purposes through in named and thereupon on the old __(document). Signed: Robert Clark
Apparently, additional heirs John Hogan and James Morphew are added to the list on the property sale. They probably had already moved away. Robert Rose who signed the land sale in 1827 is probably a legal representative for Jacob Bowman.
1828 February 24 – Estill County Marriage Bond: Humphrey Hogan to Jane Chambers
1828 September – Elk Lick Baptist Church: Members dismissed were Nancy Hogan, Lucy Murphy (Mrs. Nathan Morphew), James + Rebecca (Hogan) Morphew, Humphrey Hogan, and Solomon Hogan.
1828+ Estill County Tax: No Hogans except for a Levi Hogins.
(VIII). Hogan in Putnam County, Indiana 1827+
About 1827, the Hogans began moving to Putnam County, Indiana, and they appear on the marriage records. All are related, except for Thomas Hogan:
William Hogan married Jane Gorden 15 March 1829 at Putnam County, Ind.
Solomon Hogan married Abigail Monett on 15 February 1830
Mahala Hogan married Joseph Agers 15 January 1835 Putnam County, Ind.
Thomas Hogan married Jane Bell 22 April 1837 Putnam County, Indiana
1830 U.S. Census of Putnam County shows the following Hogans.
Names of Wives added
David Allen + Nancy Hogan
Humphrey Hogan + Jane Chambers
John Hogan + Cynthia Eggers???
Nancy Hogan, born 1778, with children and probably Washington Hogan
Solomon Hogan + Abigail Monett
William Hogan (next to Nancy Hogan) + Jane Gorden
James Morphew + Rebecca Hogan
Not thought related: Andrew Hogan
1840 U.S. Census of Putnam County, Indiana:
Solomon Hogan + Abigail Monett (Floyd Township)
Joseph Agers + Mahala Hogan (Floyd Township)
Not thought related: Andrew Hogan and Thomas Hogan, both of Washington Township, which is at the opposite end of Putnam County.
Estate of Washington Hogan Probate in 1834-36
The court records leaves one confused about a number of issues.
(1) Who was Nancy Hogan?
(2) Why did Nancy Hogan contest the estate settlement? Nancy must be Nancy Wadlow Hogan (1778) - the mother, and this action was made to keep the remaining money in her hands, rather than being divided between all heirs.
(3) Did Washington Hogan marry and did some of the younger children belong to him?
(4) Why did the probate fail to include Rebecca (Hogan) Morphew and Nancy (Hogan) Allen as heirs?
(5) Could cousins be included?
(6) Can another completely different interpretation better explain what we are reading here?
(IX). Children of William and Nancy Hogan
This is the best that can be determined without family record list. If Washington Hogan (born 1802 to 1834 - Bible record) did marry, then some of the youngest children may belong to him. Major errors probably exist with this list of children of William Hogan (1777-1826 Bible record) + Nancy Wadlaw (1778-1853 Bible record).

James M. Hogan + Martha A. Blake had the following children:
(a) Charles Edgar Hogan (November 1858 Iowa), a carpenter, married 1st about 1878/79 to Ida B. __ (~1858/59 Illinois to before 1900), 2nd about 1902/03 to Lower(?) M. (~1866 Indiana), and 3rd to Rosa __ (~1866 Indiana). Lower had children from her first marriage.
Charles E. Hogan lived in the following census locations:
1880 Oxford Township, Sumner County, Kansas
1900 Ponca City, Kay County, Oklahoma with Charles' parents
1910 Driftwood, Alfalfa County, Oklahoma
1920 Pawhuska, Osage County, Oklahoma
Based on their 1900 census, children of Charles E. and Ida B. Hogan are probably: (aa) Frank Hogan (October 1880 Kansas), (bb) Grace Hogan (May 1887 Kansas), (cc) Bessy Hogan (April 1890 Kansas). From the 1910 census record, one child of Charles E. and Lower M. Hogan was (dd) Peter Oder Hogan(?), (1904/5), with one known step-son, Ira Barkman (1892/93 Kansas).
(b) Albert L. Hogan (14 May 1860 Iowa to 11 September 1928) married about 1902/03 to Phoebe C. __ (20 November 1885 Kansas to 6 June 1982 and both buried Pawhuska Cemetery, Osage County). They lived in Pawhuska, Osage County, Oklahoma. Their children per census records are: (aa) Clifford Hogan (1904/05 OK), (bb) James Hogan (1906/07), (cc) William Hogan (November 1909).

Grant Hogan lived in the following locations, per census records:
1885 Arkansas City, Cowley County, Kansas
1900 Ponca City, Kay County, Oklahoma
1910 + 1920 Pawhuska, Osage County, Oklahoma.
Children of Grant and Emma L. Hogan are: (aa) Anna May Hogan (December 1884 Kansas), (bb) Clarence Hogan (October 1886 Kansas).
(d) James W. Hogan (1869/70 Kansas)
(iii) Elizabeth Hogan (16 May 1837 Putnam County, Indiana to 18 November 1915 Elk City, Montgomery County, Kansas and buried West Liberty Cemetery, Salt Creek Township, Chautauqua County, Kansas) married Elihu Hawkins Tharp (9 November 1833, Canton, Fulton County, Illinois). They had 7 children.
(iv) William Anderson Hogan (1841 Putnam County, Indiana to 2 January 1899 Lincoln County, Oklahoma) married in 1866 Johnson County, Kansas to Abigail Ann Pitt (1847 Des Moines County, Iowa to >1920).
1861, and 1864-1872 Johnson County, Kansas: William A. Hogan was a Civil War Sergeant in Company H, 12th Kansas Infantry Regiment. In 1866, he married in Johnson County to Abigail Pitt. No children are noted on his 1870 census.
1872-1877 Sumner County, Kansas
1877+ Salt Creek Township, Chautauqua County, Kansas: 300 acre farm where in 1881 William A. Hogan was elected to the State Legislature on the Republican ticket. In 1883, William A. Hogan sold out and located at Sedan and engaged in contracting and building.
1900 Fox Township, Lincoln County, Oklahoma, Abigail without William
1910 Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Abigail as mother to Lucretia Lynges
1920 Chandler City, Lincoln County, Oklahoma, Abigail with Lucretia
Their biography in William G. Cutler's 1883 "History of the State of Kansas," noted they had living three children: Lord Hogan, Lane Hogan, and Crete Hogan, but by combining their 1880, 1900, 1910 U.S. Census records, the following is the best that can be projected: (a) Lura (possibly for Lurania and nick-name Lord) Hogan (1872) , (b) Lane Hogan (1874 – no clue to full name), (c) Stella Hogan (1878), (d) Lucretia (Crete) Hogan (December 1881), who married William E.

His 13 year old son, Solomon is in the June 1850 Census, living with the James Conlee family in Marion Township, and his daughter, Miriam Hogan is living with the Isaac Monnett family in Floyd Township. In the 1850 November court books note the estates (deaths) of Mariam Hogan and Hannah Hogan.

Humphrey Hogan and Jane Chambers had two children (currently known):
(i) Dr. William W. Hogan was born about 1840 in Putnam Co, Indiana, described as 5 feet 10 inches high, with blue eyes and brown hair, and died 30 September 1871 at Waterville, Marshall County, Kansas from an overdose of Landanum or Morphine used to treat chronic diarrhea,
1861 July 7 – Floyd County, Iowa: William Hogan (age 21) married 7 July 1861 in Floyd County, Iowa to Ellen A. Bostwick (age 18) and their Minister was James Tatum (who signed a 1872 document of proof). His Civil War pension documents states there were no children by this marriage. Ellen remarried later to Alphons R. Bishop and lived at the Post Office Chickasaw, Chickasaw County, Iowa.
1864 August 4 - Linn County, Missouri: William W. Hogan and his brother-in-law, James D. Gilpin, enlisted as privates on 4 August 1864 at Brookfield, Linn County, Missouri in the 42nd Missouri Infantry Regiment of Captain William H. Lewis’ Company A.

1880 U.S. Census of Elkhorn District, Lincoln County, Kansas notes James D. Gilpin, age 41, to be a physician. This census allows us to determine that James D. Gilpin + Lucinda Frakes 1st marriage had one son: (a) Samuel F. Gilpin (December 1854). With his 2nd marriage, James D. Gilpin + Mary Jane Hogan had seven children: (b) William Gilpin (1857/58), (c) Eva Gilpin (1861/62), (d) Jessie Gilpin (female – 1863/64), (e) Jacob Gilpin (1866/67), (f) Robert Gilpin (1868/69), (g) Stephen Gilpin (1873/74), (h) Lewis Gilpin (1875-76).

The 1840 Putnam County census has an unnamed male teenager living with the Humphrey Hogan family whom could be Thomas Hogan.
There was a listing in ancestry.com stating Thomas Hogan + Jane Bell belonged to our clan. However Thomas Hogan + Jane lived (1839-1848 deed, Washington Township, Putnam County) adjacent to the 1840 property of Granville M. Hogan (of Parke County, Indiana), at the opposite end of Putnam County from our Hogans. Thomas Hogan’s 1840 Census record in Washington Township, Putnam County is five entries away from Andrew Hogan. Furthermore, Granville M. Hogan took Benjamin Bell, Jr. (brother to Jane?) to 1839 Putnam County Court for trespass and a debt. Later Thomas and Granville M. Hogan (are they related?) migrate to the same Township in 1860 Harrison County, Missouri.
Because of this information, I am unable connect this Thomas Hogan to our clan or trace our Thomas Hogan.
1850 Locust Grove, Jefferson County, Iowa: Nearby are Landrine + Hester Tatum, James + Rebecca Tatum, David Allen, and James + Martha Tatum.
1860 Paris Township, Linn County, Kansas.

1920 Town of Palacios, Matagorda County, Texas. Landrine with Hester in the family of Clinton A. and Julia Tatum.
Children of Landrine Tatum + Hester (Ester) Hogan have some names and dates compiled from census records and should be considered suspect. In 1900, Ester stated on her census record that she had 10 children, seven of which were still living. Thanks go to Gary Tharp and to Paulette and Ron Tatum (emails of 26 and 27 January 2007) for all their assistance with this line.

(iii). Nancy Rebecca Tatum 1849/50, born Iowa
(iv). Clinton Asbury Tatum (12 December 1851 or 1852 Iowa) married on about 23-25 March 1872 at Charles City, Floyd County, Iowa to Julia Louise Baumgardner (7 July 1851 Gallia County, Ohio to 1928 Tacoma with both buried at Mountain View Memorial Park, Tacoma, Washington). Julia's parents were Andrew Jackson "Dick" Baumgardner and Harriet Ripley of Gallia County, Ohio. Information is courtesy of Ron and Paulette Tatum, e-mails of 25, 26 January, 19 February 2007 and Census records from Gary Tharp, e-mail of 27 January 2007.
They lived in some of the following locations:
1880, 1885, 1900, 1910 Osceyedan Township, Osceola County Iowa. Census of 1910 and 1920 note father Landrine living with them.
1920 town of Palacios, Precinct 3, Matagorda County, Texas and father Landrine
Their only child was (a) Andrew Jackson Tatum (11 December 1872 Clear Lake - probably Cerro Gordo County, Iowa to 27 May 1936 Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon) married 25 March 1894 in Ocheyedan, Osceola, Iowa to Arminta "Mintie" Jane Hanna Tatum (8 June 1876 Ontario, Canada to 1 February 1961 and both buried at Mountain View Memorial Park, Tacoma, Washington). They lived in the following locations:
1900 and 1910 Ocheyedan Township, Osceola County, Iowa
1920 Town of Palacios, Precinct 3, Matagorda County, Texas. This Census notes Arminta immigrated to the US. In 1879 and was naturalized in 1887.
1921 reported in Tacoma, Washington
1930 Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington
Andrew and Mintie Tatum's children were (aa) Raymond A. Tatum (February 1895), (bb) Vivian A. Tatum (February 1897), (cc) Fernley A. Tatum (son, March 1898), and (dd) Gordon Edward Tatum (8 March 1906 Sibley, Osceola County, Iowa to 24 July 1997 in California) married in Tacoma, Washington to Vivian Geraldine Edwards (18 November 1909 Tacoma, Washington to 3 December 1994 Portland, Oregon). Both went to Stadium High School.
(v) Rosetta or Susannah Tatum (1852/55 Iowa)
(vi) Lydia Tatum (1852/55 Iowa)
(vii) Margaret Tatum (1856/57 Iowa) who married a Hayes.

Halstead. From 1891 to 1912, they lived in Crofton, Knox County, Nebraska, finally moving to Bloomfield, Knox County.
An obit posted on the Tatum Archives at http://www.rootsquest.com/~ranlewis/ per Valerie Wood is the source of this information. Landrine Tatum (1859) was survived (in 1913) by an aged father Landrine Tatum of Barnard (Lincoln County), Kansas, and the following brothers and sisters; Mrs. Margaret Hayes of Crofton, Henry C. Tatum of Blessing, Texas, C.A. Tatum of Palacios, Texas, Orville M. Tatum, Nancy Tatum, and Tabitha Tatum of Barnard, Kansas.
(ix) Mary Tatum (1860/61 Kansas)
(x). Henry C. Tatum (February 1866 Iowa).
(X). Possible Linkage to Other Hogans
An Hogan parent or relative becomes sharply limited in 1777 Tennessee Territory to three Hogans. All three did migrate to Middle Tennessee about 1780.
(1) Edward + Rebecca Kuykendall Hogan,
(2) Daniel (~1733-1811) + Rachel (__) Harrod Hogan. Was he married earlier?
(3) Humphrey (~1740's-1789/90) + Rebecca Hogan
Negative find: An in-depth review took place of the William Hogan (~1750-1827) + Nancy Wadleigh (1752-~1779) + Sarah Grant Fullington (1760) + Hannah H. Mayes line from Fayette/Garrard County, to Knox County, Kentucky to Madison County, Alabama, where he dies. No link could be found, despite some amazing similarities and the intersection of the two William Hogan families at Knox County, Kentucky in 1810!
Negative find: The clan of Colonel John Hogan (~1745-~1810) + Mary Lloyd was reviewed with the help of their source book, “Montgomery County, Tennessee Family History Book 2000.” No link could be found, despite having a son named William Hogan (1774 to 1836 - buried Hopewell Methodist Church Cemetery in Randolph County, North Carolina) and that William had a son Alexander Washington Hogan!
Negative find: William Hogan of Smith County, Tennessee (possibly son of Lemuel Hogan) had an 1815 probate naming his heirs to be wife Nancy, and two sons, William and James, and daughter Elizabeth, who later married Holden W. Proutt. No link could be found when it was discovered that William, James and Elizabeth later moved to Franklin County, Alabama, before 1830.
Positive find, but not the parents of our William Hogan: There is a Hogan line that first settled at Willis Bottom, Obey River, in today’s Clay County, Tennessee. This William Hogan, born in 1777 South Carolina, married Mary Spear, daughter of Benjamin Spear. They had 10 children from ~1810 to 1829 and lived in Overton County, Tennessee. His father, James Hogan, Sr., possibly an immigrant, migrated from 1790 Union County, South Carolina to earliest Lincoln County, Kentucky and possibly died in Overton County, Tennessee. William’s brothers are believed to be Prosser Hogan, David Hogan, James Hogan Jr., Phillip Hogan, and Micajah Hogan, who moved to Kentucky at various times between ~1783 and 1800.
To our complete surprise, Y-DNA results showed about 2 mismatches or mutations out of 37 markers to this line. This indicated a definite relationship to a common Hogan ancestor further back in time, possibly in Ireland. Research is now looking into this.
The Most Likely Parent: The Hogans and Morphew named their sons "Humphrey" three different times and this strongly suggests the name was derived from an earlier ancestor. There was a Humphrey Hogan (born in 1740’s and died 1789/90) who was part of an exploring or “Long Hunter” party into Nashville area and down the Mississippi River in 1769 or 1770. Humphrey Hogan first pioneered NE Tennessee between 1771 - 1774, before migrating to Middle Tennessee as a first-in settler in 1779 or 1780. The names of his children were mostly speculative. After his death in 1789/90, his Robertson County land continued under the title of Humphrey Hogan heirs, but was later sold off for back taxes. However in 1804/05, his wife Rebecca surfaced, now remarried to William Hines, to acknowledge the sale of the land for back taxes. This was witnessed by Walter Hogan, Jonathan Hogan, and Humphrey Hogan.
(XI). Miscellaneous Sightings in Early Tennessee For Any William Hogan
The name "William Hogan" was sighted a number of times, whose Hogan line was unclear.
(1). Robertson County has a William Hogan who owed back taxes on 471 acres for the years 1801 and 1802. The Robertson County Court ordered the Sheriff to sell the lands (From Robertson County Minutes Books, 1796-1807, pages 208, 218, 219.) This land was probably the 1796 North Carolina Land Grant #2694 to William Hogan for 500 acres on or near Drake's Lick (Creek) in Sumner County prior to Robertson County being established. The 1796 land grant would seem make our William Hogan too young (age 19) to be a land owner, or does it?
(2). The Tennessee Gazette and Mero District Newspaper recorded on 25 April 1804 that there was a letter remaining at the Nashville Post Office for William C. Hogan. This was repeated again on 20 July 1804. Who William C. Hogan is not known at this time.
(3). The March 1809 Montgomery County Court ordered John Cocke, Sheriff of Montgomery County, Tennessee to transfer debt for the year 1807, noting the following persons as being insolvent (failure to pay taxes): William Hogan – one white poll for 0.43.3/4 (From Montgomery County Court Minutes 1808-1810, page 205). In my opinion, this William Hogan probably does not belong to the Colonel John Hogan mob whom were so active in this county.
(4). There is a William Hogan mentioned on a 1788 William Colier land grant (recorded) in Greene County, Tennessee, adjoining land he purchased from John Byrd, William Hogan, and Samuel John, on the Noachuckey River. This could be the same William Hogan whom signed a December 1787 petition by the inhabitants of the “State of Franklin” requesting entry into the United States. Adjacent to this signature was the name of Ralph Hogan, whose first name is one never used by our gang. Nothing else is yet known about this individual. One line of speculation is that he was an American Revolutionary War soldier searching for land to settle before moving on to South Carolina (see 1790 U.S. Census for South Carolina).
(XII). Y-DNA Results for Our Hogan and What it Means
My understanding of Y-DNA testing is this: Y-DNA is found exclusively in males and the testing applies only to consecutive male lines. This cannot include even one maternal line. Certain segments of the y-chromosome have a chemical make-up that repeat a number of times, depending on a specific location on that chromosome. This location is called a marker. For the marker called DYS388, there are 22 to 24+ repeats, and only those having the same number should be related. Mutations change the number of repeats and are said to occur at the rate of 0.2% (0 to 0.4%) per generation. As the number of generations increase, Y-DNA tests will show an increasing number of mutations. Current Y-DNA testing uses 13, 25, 37, or 59 markers.
Already in Hogan Y-DNA testing, a thirteen marker test has been shown to be not enough, when a descendant of Colonel John Hogan (Tennessee) was matched for 13 markers against South Carolina's William Hogan, born 1777. Added marker testing later showed they were not related.
Y-DNA tests DO NOT define which generation or which ancestor is the common link. With an increasing number of markers tested, a likely range of generations for the common ancestor does develop, best with 0 mismatches, a wider range with 1 mismatch and with 2 mismatches even wider and further back in time.
A living descendant of William Hogan (1777 Estill County, Ky.) was tested for 37 markers against a descendant of Walter G. Hogan. The results can be seen at http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/h/hogan/results.html. The test subject H-8 is Walter G. Hogan and H-9 is our William Hogan, Sr. (1777 - 1826 Estill County, Ky.). H-6 Ewing Hogan is a son of H-2 William Hogan (1777 South Carolina) + Mary Spear. I have no idea who H-10 William Hogan – 1803 Missouri might be.
Our two test subjects, H-8 and H-9 had a score of 37 out of 37 markers matching. That means no mutations occurred over the six generations to the most recent common ancestor under consideration. This would be Humphrey Hogan – the Long Hunter, born sometime in the 1740's. Generally speaking, matching 37 out of 37 markers is best for 1 to 4 generations back in time, and then further back the chances for a perfect score drop off very fast. A graph shown on http://www.familytreedna.com indicates a 92% chance that the common ancestor is 6 generations back in time, if he cannot be sooner in time. There is an 8% chance he could be further back in time. Therefore, based on this graph, there is a 92% chance that Humphrey Hogan – the Long Hunter is the father of our William Hogan.
H-2, H-6, and H-10 appear to average 2 mutations or mismatches if all testing went to 37 markers. Ewing Hogan actually has only one mismatch out of 25, but I think a 37 test would probably total 2 mismatches. Yes, these three lines are very definitely related to us, but further back in time, maybe even back in Ireland.
