This review - last revision 2 December 2020,, James R. Murphy



(Part A).  William B. Hogan (1780/90 to 1835)

Birth date and location: Birth date estimated 1780-1790, based on his 1830 census.   Was he born later?  Birth State unknown.   1880 Census of by two sons (2nd marriage) stated their father was born in Kentucky, Virginia & Ireland – no consensus.    Possible son – James A. Hogan (1819/20 Ky. to ~1880+) stated on his 1880 US Census that his unnamed father was born in Virginia. 

Married 1st (maybe or maybe not to) 4 June 1816 Logan County, Kentucky to Sally Scott, but need to confirm.  Her parents are not known.  Married 2nd to Sarah D. Mallory, “Sallie” on 23 July 1822 in Barren County, Kentucky by Jacob Lock, a Baptist Minister.   First marriage mentioned by 2nd wife on her pension application three times without details or first wife’s name.

Description from pension application: 5’ 10”, 150 pounds, black hair, black eyes, dark complication.     

Occupation unknown: Later years - probably farming. 

Locations: Moved around during early years.  (1) likely in 1819 Simpson County, Kentucky – nearby to an older James Hogan on son’s Alexander P. Hogan’s land.  (2) Lived in Barren County, Kentucky for about 10 years per widow’s pension application.  Died 1835 in Warren County, Kentucky.  No recorded deeds have been found.

Died 31 October 1835 in Warren County, Kentucky per widow’s pension record.

Children by 1st marriage – appears to have 2 sons and 1 daughter per 1820 census…if his record.  More on this later in chapter.

Children by 2nd marriage - 3 sons and 3 daughters.  See detailing in children of William B. Hogan.

Parents: After extensive review in 2020, they have not been identified.

Family History survived: Zero

Under consideration as possibly related –

James Hogan of 1819-1823 Simpson County, Kentucky and his two sons (i). Alexander P. Hogan (1785/89 to 1881) and (ii). Nathaniel S. Hogan (1806 – 1870+) who both on their 1850, 1860, 1870 census stated that they were born in Virginia, but location(s) not yet known.  Major problems - These Hogans arrived in Kentucky on/before 1819 and William B. Hogan by 1812 when he enlisted in the War of 1812 in Green County, Kentucky.    Also, this James Hogan and his sons had multiple slaves, and Wm. B. Hogan never had any.   At one point, lived very close to each other in Simpson County.

Sons by 1st marriage – (1). William R. Hogan (1816 to 1900) of Clark County, Kentucky.  Living descendant recently tested showed a perfect match of 37 out of 37 y-dna markers compared with a living descendant of William B. Hogan.*     (2). Also, under suspicion is James A. Hogan (1819/20 to 1880+) of Simpson County and Missouri.  As of this latest revision, his relationship appears promising, but needs more evidence.

Sarah D. Mallory, “Sallie” (1801/02 to 1889)

Born: ~1801 or 1802 per 1870 and 1880 US Census.  Age 57 on 5 December 1859 pension application.

Widow years: Lived on her own side of the family; did not remarry.

Died prior to 12 December 1889 per pension records.

Details for William B. Hogan (Part B)


1812 August 25 to October 31 – War of 1812-1814:  1st enlistment for Private “William B. Hogan” in Capt. William Ray’s Company and Capt. Warner Elmore’s Company of 1st Regiment, Kentucky Light Dragoons.  He enlisted in Green County, Kentucky (per pension application) and is his first known record.   Capt. Warner Elmore was on the 1815 Green County tax list and filed his will here.   Analysis   of other members of this military company are not helpful. 

War of 1812 Pension Application Files on; Sallie Hogan widow’s pension application.

Report of the Adjutant General of the State of Kentucky- soldiers of the War of 1812, by the Kentucky Legislature, 1891 page 36.


1814 November 20 to 1815 May 20 – War of 1812-1814: 2nd enlistment for Corporal “William Hogan” in Captain Robert Paxon’s Company, Kentucky Detached Militia, commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel William Mitchusson.   In Mitchusson’s Regiment, William B. Hogan fought at the Battle of New Orleans on 8 January 1815.  Paxton lived in Adair County, Kentucky and died 1 March 1815 at the Battle of New Orleans.   Other names of interest in this unit were Private Nathan Hogan and Private John Hogan.  This John Hogan died 9 January 1815 in service, according to the Adjutant General of Kentucky report.  His tiny estate administration was handled by Warren County, Kentucky’s “James Hogan,” formerly of Union County, South Carolina, who is not the same Simpson County, Kentucky James Hogan.  

War of 1812 Pension Application Files on, Sallie Hogan’s widows pension application who was requesting a pension and bounty land.   

Report of the Adjutant General of the State of Kentucky- soldiers of the War of 1812, by the Kentucky Legislature, 1891 pages 280-281


(likely) 1815 Green County, Kentucky tax list which includes other Hogans in this county:


James Hogan 1001, no other tax details. (image #690/1399,

Prosser Hogin 2004, no other details.  (#690/1399)

James Hogan 1143, no other details (#690/1399)

* William Hogan 1000, no other details (#692/1399). 


* Probably is Wm. B. Hogan.  This is the only time William Hogan shows up on Green County tax lists (reviewed from 1795 through 1827).  Notice that William is not on the same image as other Hogans; i.e.- not living near other Hogans.


All Green County taxes are filed into groups, i.e. “A’s, B’s, C’s, etc.  Within each group, they are not alphabetical, and likely listed via tax visit.  Early tax records were dated when taken until 1809 and not there-after.  Taxes with four numbers, such as 1002 - 1st number is white males 21+, 2nd blacks 16-20, 3rd number total blacks, 4th number horses.  Most tax records give acreage of land, which county land was in, water course, in whose name patented.  If no land listed, this suggests the person was working on someone else’s farm, renting, homesteading before purchasing, or such.


(questionable) 1816 June 4 – Logan County, Ky: Marriage of “Wm. B. Hogan” to Sally Scott (county record).

Kentucky, County Marriage Records 1783-1965,


              Sally Scott is the big question here.  Is she William B. Hogan’s 1st wife?  Review of other Hogans in Logan County, Kentucky was inconclusive as to whether she belonged to a different William Hogan.


(maybe) 1817 - Warren County, Kentucky: Wm. Hogan 90 acres Trammel (Creek) + 40 acres, 1001. 


This is only year he appears in Warren County tax lists.  There is many “Hagans” in this county which occasionally had their surname misspelled as Hogan.  However in 1819, a part of Warren County became Simpson County.  


1819 Simpson County, Kentucky Tax (1st year saved):

“Wm. B. Hogan”, 1001 (Key: #1 - 1 w. male 21+, #2 Blacks 16+, #3 Total Blacks, #4 – horses)

James Hogan, 117 acres, Drakes Fork, 1142


Problem is that there is another William B. Hogan living in Montgomery County, Tennessee which is not too far away.  In adjacent Logan County, Kentucky is a third William Hogan living on Whippoorwill Creek.  It is easy to imagine one of these moving about.  Neither appear to be possibilities.


1820 US Census of Franklin, Simpson County, Kentucky which is not an alphabetic listing:

William Hogan – 2 males and 1 female 0-9, 1 female 16-25, 1 male 26-44.  No blacks. Six names away from:

James Hogan – 1 male 10-15, 1 male 16-25, 1 male 45+, no females, 6 blacks.    


This census shows William Hogan with his 1st wife, if interpreted correctly.    Pension application by his 2nd wife mentions this first marriage three times, but without any other details.   His 1st wife and children cannot be found on the next 1830 census.   Speculation – She died and her Scott kin took over and raised her children. 


Notice that James Hogan’s age 45+ would place his birth year back to 1775 and probably earlier. 


1821 Simpson County, Kentucky Tax: Names alphabetically listed in A’s, B’s, C’s, but not within letter groups.

James Hogan – 127 acres D. Creek; In whose name entered - A.P. Hogan, 11153 (#2 is total voters, otherwise the same).  Next name on list is:

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

Wm Hogan 110000


1822 Simpson County, Kentucky Tax (irregular attempts at alphabetical list such as A’s, B’s)

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

Alex P. Hogan – 11000 (next 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


1822 July 23 – Glasgow, Barren County, Kentucky: “William B. Hogan” married this date and place to Sally D. Mallery. (county record).


The only Mallory in this county in 1823 was a Fleming Mallory.*    Several family trees indicate he was born in Goochland County, Virginia which borders Louisa County, Virginia.   Marriage records show a Rev. Lewis Chaudion did marry Fleming Mallory to Judith Mallory, daughter of Sally Mallory on 31 August 1807 in Goochland County, Virginia with surety being Thomas Dickerson. *   

* Marriages of Goochland Co., Va. 1733-1815” by Genealogical Publishing Co. 


1823 Simpson County, Kentucky Tax:

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


1824 Simpson County, Kentucky Tax:

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


James Hogan is now missing and later records for him have not been found.  Simpson County lost its county records, so a will or estate administration would no longer exist.


1824 Barren County tax list: William Hogan 1 white male 21+ and 2 horses.  No other details.  Tax lists checked from 1820 through 1847.  Tax lists are yearly, with 1837-1839 missing. 


Only other Hogan on these Barren County tax lists is James Hogan (1791 to 1865), who had 56 to 157 acres on the Nobob Creek in Barren County and no slaves (William B. had none).   He does not appear close to William Hogan on these tax lists, even though the lists were grouped by A’s, B’s, C’s.   His parents and origins are not known.  Furthermore, the 1830 US Census for this James Hogan indicates he is much younger than Simpson County’s James Hogan (born on or before 1775).


1828 Barren County tax list: William Hogan, 1 white male 21+ and no horses.  No further details.

1829 Barren County tax list: William Hogan 1 w. m. 21+, 2 children 4-15 years of age, no horses.   There are no tax lists for 1830, 1831, and 1832.

1830 US Census of Barren Co., Kentucky: William Hogan 1 male + 2 females 0-4, 2 females 5-9, 1 female 20-30, 1 male 40-50 (image 39/130).


              From this census, possible names can be added with estimated birth dates: William Hogan (1780/90), wife Sally Hogan (1800/10), children – Malvina Hogan (1822/25), Elizabeth Hogan (possibly 1822/25 or 1825/1830), Martha Ann Hogan (1825/1830), female Hogan - no name (1825/30), Alexander Hogan (1825/30).  Missing are Jerome Hogan and Robert Thomas Hogan, presumed born after 1830.    His 1830 US Census of Barren County indicated two close neighbors, William Parker 100011+ 00001 (1 male 30-40 and 1 female 20-30, etc.).  Next was Thomas Parker which included one male 60-70, and 1 female 40-50, etc. 


1834 April 1 – Warren County, Kentucky: Birth of son Robert Thomas Hogan, per his death certificate.


1835 October 31 – Warren County, Kentucky: Death of William Hogan, per widow’s pension application.


1835 to 1837 – Barren County Court:  In October and December 1835, a summons was issued to “Sarah Hagen” as to why her children should not be bound.    In February 1836, this court ordered Elizabeth Hagan, orphan of Wm. Hagen, to be bound to James Ferrell to learn the art of spinning and housekeeping until she reaches the age of 16.  The October 1836 Court order Martha Hagen and Alexander Hagen, orphans and child of William Hagen to Robert T. Mallory to learn the art of farming and housekeeping.   In November 1837, the court that Jerome N.B. Hogan and Robert T. Hogan (also shown as Hagan), children of Sally Hagen, (being in court consent) to be bound and learn the trade of farmer until age 21.  Jerome about 6 and Robert about (age) 4.

(C-1).  William S. Hogan (1816 to 1900) + Mary Adams   


William S. Hogan

Birth – March 1816, per 1900 US Census.  Bolling Green, Warren County, Kentucky* birth place may be in a Clark County history book or military record, but needs a source.  Winchester Democrat (newspaper) for 28 December 1900 stated he was age 85 when he died (i.e. born 1815). 

Middle name reported to be Scott, per Clark County KyGenWeb by Marigold Hogan (in about year 2000).  If correct, this could be a major clue to his origins.

Locations lived – Warren and Clark Counties, Ky.   Descendants may still live in Clark County.

Married on 26 December 1839 Winchester, Clark County, Kentucky to Mary Adams (county marriage record).  Mary Adams (1816 to >1880) was the daughter of William Adams + Sarah Bledsoe - “Sallie.”

Occupation: Clark County Jailer at Winchester, a Sherriff (per Marigold Hogan), and farmer

Military – Mexican War under John S. Williams.  Mexican War pension application or military papers not found yet, which could to be the source of “Bolling Green, Kentucky.”   Civil War: 11th Kentucky Cavalry, CSA under Col. Chenault (Col. David Waller Chenault, CSA).  No CSA pension has been found.   Died 23 December 1900 at home near Pinchem, Clark County, Kentucky (obit).

Brothers: none mentioned. 

Parents: Y-dna testing shows a perfect match 37 out of 37 y-dna markers, which give an estimated 92% chance this is a correct.  1880 and 1900 Census state father was born in Kentucky.

              Check of census takers info on father and mother’s birth place suggests these items were poorly answered or recorded.  Nearly everyone on the same page had only Kentucky named.  But this doesn’t help us with the correct answer.

Dale (1837-1911).   Death Certificate states he was born in Warren County, Kentucky and his father was William Hogan born in Kentucky.  R.T. Hogan shows confusion stating on census records (1880, 1900, 1910, 1920) where his father was born.   


Robert was named in his uncle’s will as an heir.*  The last we know of him in later years, the heirs of Robert Mallory’s 2nd wife filed suit against the heirs of Robert.*  Question arises whether his father named him after a grandfather(s).

Possibilities of Earlier Ancestors for William B. Hogan of Barren County, Kentucky (Part D)

Thoughts on Y-dna Data (Part E)


              Hogan y-dna was reviewed on for Col. John Hogan versus our subject William B. Hogan.  Col. John Hogan and other unlisted test kit had only two y-dna mismatches/mutation out of 64 compared with William B. Hogan.  Col. John Hogan becomes one of the closest matches to William B. Hogan with current y-dna results.  His history has been well researched and our subject William B. is not a son or grandson.  Recent research shows he is not descended from one of his two brothers. Therefore, their common ancestor may be further back in old Ireland.          


From the book “Thomas Lloyd of Brunswick County, Virginia and Orange County, North Carolina” (page 27):  Col. John Hogan mentioned he had two brothers on the Orange County, North Carolina debtor list. (1) Zachariah Hogan who moved to and died in Anson County, North Carolina.  (2). Isaiah Hogan who is on a July 1777 debtor list, died in 1781.  Isaiah’s widow remarried and she and his son may have moved to Georgia. 


Posted comment on Montgomery County, North Carolina - 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)

(iv). Zachariah Hogan, Jr. (7 April 1798 Montgomery County, North Carolina to 14 January 1892 Montgomery Co., NC)

(v). James Hogan (~1800 Montgomery Col, NC to 1870+ in Hardeman, Co., Tn.

(vi & vii). Two daughters (1775-1784), names unknown>boards>surname Hogan, Posted by Cleo, under Zachariah Hogan (ca1750-after 1810 Montgomery Co., NC. 08 August 2006


            Notice the Montgomery County records are North Carolina and not Tennessee.  There is another William Hogan, born about 1780/1790 who can be found in the 1840 US Census of Montgomery County, North Carolina.  This discounts him being our subject William B. Hogan.  Zack’s descendants may still be living in Montgomery County, North Carolina.  The down side about this line and a bad one, is that Marmaduke Hogan’s y-dna results show two additional mismatches (total of 4 mismatches).


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


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

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

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


Question here is whether Daniel Hogan “I” (1753 to 1787) had a son named William?  A review indicates “no.”  So, it appears that Col. John’s brother Isaiah Hogan (ca1740 to 1781) is the only one remaining, if his descendants can be found.    Isaiah Hogan lived in Chatham County, North Carolina where he died in November 1781.   His wife Nancy became Executrix and in 1785 a John Hogan takes over executor duties.  This John Hogan appears to be a son, and he signed his records with some form of “x.”   Colonel John Hogan used a full signature.      


            Y-dna results also can be looked at differently.  Hogans who CANNOT belong to William B. Hogan because the y-dna is too dissimilar.  This is immediately apparent with William Hogan (ca1675 to 1834 + wife Elizabeth Griffin descendants and includes Humphrey Hogan (test kits of Walter G. Hogan and Pearl C. Hogan/my Hogan relative).  They do not belong to our subject – William B. Hogan.  However, it is impossible to determine whether other Hogan lines are connected because of names given on their test kits do not help.   This includes Hogans from Fauquier and Louisa Counties, Virginia, Prosser Hogan, Micajah Hogan, etc.  William B. Hogan can still have a wide range of ancestors in this county.
