James Hogan (~1758 - ~1797/1800) and William Hogan (1760 – 1836)

Sons of William Griffin Hogan (~1730 – 1783) + Hannah: listed as (D1) & (D2)

This update, 2 January 2022, James R. Murphy, planetmurphy.org

 

Note: This is an updated subsection from an earlier writeup – “Virginia Hogans from Pittsylvania, Lunenburg, Halifax Counties” beginning with 1st generation William Hogan “I” (ca1675 to 1734) and wife Elizabeth Griffin.  Descendants migrated to Anson Co., Montgomery Co., North Carolina and then to Georgia & South Carolina.

 

    This Review includes the following Hogans who settled in Fairfield and Kershaw Counties, South Carolina. 

 

(D-1). James Hogan (~1758 to ~1797/1800? - possibly Fairfield County, South Carolina) + wife Nancy __.  Up to 6 children, names not known except one theorized.  Other than the younger James Hogan, children have not been identified and do not know where they vanished after 1810.

(D1-a) James Hogan (1785/90 to 1835) + wife Salome Sarah Little or Sarah Little, sister to Mary Little - wife of Lewis Hogan.  Uncertain placement here.

 

(D-2). William Hogan, Sr. (1760-1836 Kershaw Co. SC) + wife Jemima Sanders.  Identified children:

(D2-a). Jemima Hogan (born 1780’s) married __ Sanders.

(D2-b). Lewis Hogan (1784-1847) + wife Mary Little

(D2-c). William Hogan, Jr. (1785/90-1830/31) + wife Naomi

(D2-d). Sanders Samuel Hogan, Sanders S. Hogan, “Sam” (1802-1858) + wife Margaret Jane Crankfield

(D2-e). Elizabeth Hogan (1806 to 1850+) + husband Emanuel B. Rush (1803-1859)

             The following Kershaw County Hogan may not be closely related:

(x-a). Daniel Hogan (1804/05 to 1870 Alabama) + wife Sarah Motley (1809-1869).     

 

James Hogan (~1758 to ~1797/1800?) + wife Nancy

Anson County, North Carolina and Fairfield County, South Carolina

 

(D-1). James Hogan (~1758 to ~1797/1800?), is a son of William Griffin Hogan, with evidence in deeds which follow.   His estimated date of death is derived from the 1800 US Census of Fairfield County, SC for Nancy Hogan, who is likely his wife.  Census show four young ones born 1790-1800 and suggests he died about 1797-1800.   

 

James Hogan likely served in the American Revolution from South Carolina where there are three soldier’s records for James Hogan.   Cannot determine which or if any record belongs to him or if he served local militia.  No Fairfield County, SC deeds could be found, although he could have recorded a deed in earlier Camden District.  Nancy Hogan, probably his widow, replaces him in Fairfield County census records.  South Carolina did not require its counties to record marriages until 1911 and so we lose an important information source.   If they married back in Anson County, North Carolina, there were still no marriage records. What happened to this family in their last yeas leaves this researcher (J. Murphy) most puzzled.

 

Be warned about multiple James Hogans in earlier Anson County, North Carolina:  Our subject here - James Hogan (~1758-1797/80?) 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 is confusion with another “James Hoggan” (born before 1755) in 1797 and 1800 US Census of nearby Montgomery County, North Carolina, who is not understood.  

 

Details for James Hogan (~1758-1797/1800?) + wife Nancy

 

1784 October 23 – Anson County, North Carolina Deed:  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)  

 

Here's early evidence that our subject James Hogan was in 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 the above 1784 Anson County deed, the witness was most likely James Hogan, Senior “I” (~1728 to 1793 Anson Co.) who married Silence _, who was our subject’s uncle.  Senior’s son James Hogan “II” was already living in Garrard County, Kentucky.  Our subjects’ father - William Griffin Hogan (~1730-1783) had died the year before. 

 

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)

 

Hannah (Hogan) Davis is the wife of William Griffin Hogan and mother to our subjects - James Hogan and William Hogan, Sr.    Joshua Davis is Hannah’s new 2nd husband.

 

1790 US Census of Fairfield County, South Carolina: (list is not alphabetized and shows who is living nearby)

James Hogan, 2 males under 16, 1 male over 16, 4 females, 1 black; next person on census is….

Wm. Hogan, 2 males under 16, 1 male 16+, 4 females, no blacks.

 

Notice that both William and James Hogan lived in Fairfield County in 1790.   This is the last time both lived in the same county.  William Hogan then moves slightly east to adjacent Kershaw County/District.

 

1790 August 10 – Fairfield Co./District, NC:  James Thomas of Fairfield County, NC…make Capt. William Robertson of same county, my true and lawful attorney…9 July 1790.  Signed – James Thomas, Shed(?).  Witnesses – Philip Raiford and James Hogan.  Personally appeared Mr. James Hogan and made oath that he did see the written named James Thompson, Shed(?).  Signed and delivered this act and deed…sworn August 10, 1790 by James Hogan before Cassus Craig J.S.  Recorded - 11 September 1790 (DB A/91, image 323/644)

 

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)

 

              Above: Elijah Hogan is the son of James and Silence Hogan.  James Ryle married Elizabeth Hogan, sister to Elijah Hogan.   No inherited property for brother William Hogan (1769-1836) could be identified and should raise questions – but what questions?

The above 1800 US Census of South Carolina shows James Hogan is now missing with only Nancy Hogan (presumed wife of James Hogan, deceased) named.  Efforts failed to find a 1797-1800 Fairfield County estate administration for James Hogan and also failed to find if some male was declared legal guardian for his underage children.  Counties commonly did this even though the mother was still alive.  Furthermore, no online family tree mentions this couple and their children.  They seem to vanish.  So, what happened to them? 

 

(wrong person) 1820 US Census of Edgefield County, South Carolina:

Nancy Hogan, 2 males 10-15, 1 male 26-44, 1 male 45+, 8 blacks.

 

Regarding this above 1820 census:  This last Nancy Hogan is the widow of a different William Hogan of Union County, South Carolina who died in 1805.  He was using the surname spelling “Hogans” and his 1805 will was filed in both Union County and Edgefield Counties.   This researcher has an unfinished write-up about these Union County Hogans and they do not seem to be related to the Fairfield/Kershaw Hogans, at least by way of this country. 

 

Children of James Hogan (~1758 to <1797/1800?) and wife Nancy, per census records

Assuming all 6 or 7 younger ones are their children and their census is reasonably accurate 

 

(D1-a) – Uncertain placement here.  James Hogan (1785/1790 to 1835) is noted in US Census of Kershaw County, South Carolina in 1820, and 1830 and his death is noted in an 1835 Kershaw County estate administration.  

 

His father could be James Hogan (born ~1758) who died ~1797/1800.  After his death our younger James Hogan possibly moved in with his uncle, William Hogan, Senior before marrying about 1816 – see the discussion about the 1810 census.  He married Salome Sarah Little, “Sarah,” who is likely a sister to Mary Little Hogan - wife of Lewis Hogan (1784-1847).   His 1830 U.S. Census for Kershaw Co., SC suggests two sons were born 1821-1825 and two daughters before 1820.   No Kershaw County deeds could be found for him. 

 

James Hogan died in 1835 Kershaw County, and he has an estate administration (no will) with John Motley being the administrator.*  This file could not be found.   Furthermore, no male guardianship Kershaw County could be found for his underage children.   The reason for this: His widow Sarah Little Hogan quickly moved to Harris County, Georgia to be her Little relatives.  On 5 September 1836 and noted in records three times more, Harris County, Georgia Court appointed joint administrators – James W. Cates and John J. Little to be guardians to James Everett Hogan and John Henry Hogan.  The mother named was “Sarah Hogan.” **  

* Kershaw County, SC General Index to Estates, Probate Court 1780-1960, familysearch.org on-line indicates an 1835 administration for James Hogan, with John Motley administrator, further resource being listed as “Apartment 31, Package 1118.”

^ genealogy.com Hogan Forum, re: William Hogan 1820 Kershaw County, S.C. Census by Randal Farrar, 26 Feb. 2011.  “Looking for parents of William.  Believe his father is Griffin Hogan and his mother is a Cordell.  In 1820, William is listed along with Lewis, James, and William Jr. in Kershaw County.  I believe these are his sons.  If this is true, counting the children in his household, he and his wife had at least seven sons and two daughters.  I believe he married Jemima Sanders.  His son, James, born about 1790, is my great-great- great grandfather.  He married Salome Sarah Little about 1816 and he died about 1834 in Whitesville, Harris County. Georgia.  His son, Lewis, married Mary (Polly) Little.  Sarah and Mary’s parents were Daniel Little and Phillipina Eigener.  James Hogan (1790-1834) had at least two sons, James Everett (1822-1880) and my great great grandfather John Henry Hogan (1824-1870).  Any help would be greatly appreciated.” 

 

For this searcher (J. Murphy), a problem arises – can we better confirm the parents of this James Hogan (1785/90 to 1835)?    William Hogan, Sr’s. (1760-1836) pension papers name which children were alive in 1831 and again in 1855.  If this pension record is accurate, he was not a son to William Hogan, Sr.   That leaves possible parents to be brother James Hogan (~1758 to 1797/00) and his (presumed) widow Nancy Hogan who is noted in 1800 and 1810 US Census of adjacent Fairfield County, South Carolina.   

 

Details for James Hogan (~1790-1835) + Sarah Little

 

1810 US. Census of Kershaw County, SC: Census is not alphabetical and all four are sequentially listed one after another. 

Betty Motley – 1 male + 1 female 10-16, 2 males 16-25, 1 female 45+

*Philipa Little – 1 male 0-9, 2 males + 1 female 10-16, 1 male 16-25, 1 female 45+

Lewis Hogan – 1 male + 1 female 0-9, 1 male 10-15, 1 female 16-25, 1 male 26-44.

John Motley – 2 males + 1 female 0-9, 1 male + 1 female 16-26.

 

Philipa or Phillipina Little is thought to be the mother of the wife of James Hogan (~1790-1835).

 

1810 US Census of Kershaw County, South Carolina (not nearby to above individuals)

*William Hogan, 3 males + 1 female 0-9, 1 female 10-15, 3 males + 1 female 16-25 (ages 1785-1794), 1 female 26-44, no blacks.  

 

Interpretation of Kershaw’s William Hogan in 1810: No older male is listed (William Hogan, Sr. is missing but should be here).  The listed William Hogan should be Junior (~1785/90 to 1830/31) who is one of the three males 16-25 (born 1785-1794).  He marries about 1818.  Second male 16-25 is Lewis Hogan (1794 to 1847).  Third male 16-25 could very well be James Hogan (1785/1790 to 1835), who could have joined this family after his father James Hogan (1758 to 1797/1800) died.  This placement is speculative.    

 

Of the three younger males 0-10 (born 1800-1810), one is Sanders S. Hogan (1802-1858), another speculatively might be Daniel Hogan (1804/05 – 1870 Alabama), whose parents are not understood.   The remaining third one is not known.     Of the two daughters, one may be Jemima Hogan (born 1780’s) who married __ Sanders, possibly William Sanders, Jr.   The second daughter is Elizabeth Hogan (1806 to 1850+) who married Emanuel B. Rush (1803 to 1859).  Surname is Rush and not Bush as mentioned in the pension record.

William Hogan (1760-1836) + wife Jemima Sanders

Anson County, North Carolina and Fairfield & Kershaw Counties, South Carolina

 

(D-2).  William Hogan, Sr. (1760 to 1836):  Stats:

Born/Died: 9 September 1760 to 21 April 1836 and his memorial is on findagrave.com at Smyrna United Methodist Church Cemetery, Elgin, Kershaw Co., South Carolina.  It is not known if a gravestone formerly existed and wore out.

Wife: Jemimah Sanders (1762 to 1836 - whose listing is at same cemetery per findagrave.com).

Parents: Son of William Griffin Hogan and his wife Hanna.    

Married in the early 1780’s.

 

William Hogan, Sr. was born in South Carolina in 1860 (per pension application), then likely went back to Anson County, North Carolina with his parents before returning to South Carolina in time to become a South Carolina Revolutionary soldier by 1780.    William Sanders Hogan, Sr. (1826 – 1907) is one of his descendants and Eric Tysinger is currently researching these Hogans (2020).   The “Sanders” middle name is solid evidence that he belongs with these Hogans.

 

William Hogan (1760-1836) was in the Am. Revolution from Fairfield District/County, South Carolina.  He applied for this pension in 1831 and pension was paid from 4 March 1831 to April 1836 when the pensioner died.   Wife mentioned is Jemima Hogan.   1831 Pension mentions older brother James Hogan and William claimed he was born in South Carolina.  Because it was thought only a small portion of the pension was paid after his death, Sanders S. Hogan, surviving son of William and Jemimah Hogan, requested in 1855 further payment for himself and sister Jemimah Sanders, as the only two surviving children.    Within the pension records in reply, Robt. J.  M__son, Auditor of the Treasury Department mentioned 1831 to 1836 pension payments totaling $136.05 had been remitted to James A. Black of Columbia, SC, Attorney for “Jemima Saunders, Elizabeth Bush and Sanders S. Hogan,” three of the four children of the deceased pensioner.  The other child’s name was unknown to the office and his portion remained unpaid.   This researcher (J. Murphy) believes this missing person was Lewis Hogan (1784-1847).

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.

 William Hogan: If the younger males are all his sons, then this 1810 census shows 4 sons and Sanders S. Hogan (1802-1858) hasn’t been born yet.

 

1803 January 8 – Kershaw County, SC:  I, William Hogan of Kershaw County, Planter, for 15 pounds sterling, deed to Laurence Williams of Kershaw County, a plantation or tract of land containing 100 acres in Camden District on Hollow Spring of Spear’s Creek and on the great road from Camden to Fridig’s Ferry on the Congaree River.  Land was granted to William Saunders on 1 February 1790 by his excellency Charles Pinckney Governor which is recorded in the Secretary’s Office in Columbia in Book B, No. 5, page 69.   Signed – William Hogan.  Witnessed by William Payne and Cordel Hogan - his x.  Justices certify Jemima Hogan, wife of the within named William Hogan this day appeared before me…declare that she does freely relinquish her claim.   Signed – Jemima Hogan - her X.  Signed – J. Alexander, JP. 3 July 1803.  Entered 1 April 1805 with Cordel Hogan - his “x” signing.  (DB E/413, image 169/717)

 

1805 March 15 - Kershaw District, SC:   I, Cordel Hogan of Kershaw District, planter, for $100 deed to Laurence Williams of Kershaw District, a plantation or tract of land containing 440 acres situate on Spears Creek waters of Wateree River, and bounding NE and NW on said Cordal Hogan’s land, SW to Sanders land, NW to Daniel Holidays at the time of survey in 1802.   Dated 15 March 1805.  Signed – Cordal Hogan- his x.  Signed – Robert Tucker and Jacob Cherry.  Appeared before me Robert Tucker, sworn in, maketh oath.  Witnesses – Robert Tucker, James Kershaw, J.P.  (DB E/46, image 171/717)   

 

Cordel Hogan (1758-1840+ Mississippi) had two sons who were Samuel or Lemuel Hogan (1782-1850+ Mississippi) and Shadrack Hogan (1786-1860 Miss).  Other sons have been suggested without evidence and appear incorrect.   Cordel Hogan served in the American Revolution from Mississippi.  After this, he lived in Northampton County, North Carolina and next in the Richland/Kershaw/Fairfield triangle. from about 1792 to 1815 before moving to on Mississippi. One South Carolina County interaction between Cordel Hogan and our subject William Hogan appears in the above deeds which suggest they lived close to one-another at some point in time.  It is thought that Cordel should not add to Hogan confusion in Fairfield and Kershaw Counties, but do keep in mind that Cordel Hogan is closely related, although the exact relationship is not known.   He could be a first cousin or even a possible brother.   Incidentally, notice the rare surname of Jacob Cherry.  Cordel Hogan married Charity Cherry.   

 

There are two creeks of interest in this area.   Spears Creek flows west to east beginning in western edge of Richland County, flows east near the southern border of Kershaw County and finally turns straight south to empty into the Wateree River in Richland County.     The location of “Hollow Spring of Spears Creek is not known.  The next main creek system to the north is Twentyfive Mile Creek flowing from eastern Richmond County east through Kershaw County into the Wateree River in Kershaw County.  

 

1807 June 1 – Kershaw County, SC:  Indenture this day from William Hogan Senior and his wife Jemima Hogan of Kershaw County, SC deed to Lewis Hogan of same county, for the good we have and bear for our son Lewis Hogan…grant a tract or parcel of land granted to John Motley and whereon the said William and Jemima Hogan now resides containing by survey 26 acres.   Signed - William Hogan and Jemima Hogan - her X.  Witnesses – Silas Shinn, Jemima Hogan, Jun. - her X.    Entered 14-? October 1809.   South Carolina Kershaw District at the request of Mr. Lewis Hogan, I have divided and laid out unto him the said Lewis Hogan 26 acres of land taken from the southwest corner of William Hogan Senior’s track of land situate of the northwest side of the 25 Mile Creek bound northeast by William Hogan Senior’s land, west by vacant lands all other sides of by the 25 Mile Creek and has such shape and been as the above plot represent, given under my hand this 24 May 1807.  Signed Silas Shinn, D.S.  Drawing shows John Sander’s land to the east.   (DB F/113, image 491/717)

1810 US. Census of Kershaw County, SC: Not alphabetical.  All sequentially listed one after another. 

 

Above: This 1810 William Hogan census seems so messy wrong that it might be ignored, but shouldn’t.   Assuming it is correct or nearly correct, the oldest male, age 16-25, on this census could be 2nd generation William Hogan, Jr., probably near age 25.   The 1st generation William Hogan, Sr. (1760 – 1836) is missing and should be here.  The oldest female 26-44 should be Senior’s wife – Jemima Hogan, but her age should be greater.  The female 16-25 could not be 2nd generation William Hogan Jr.’s wife since he married about 1818. 

 

Who are all the other males, assuming they are all sons?   In 1810, two of three eldest males (age 16-25) in 1810 probably are William Hogan, Jr. (1781/1790 to 1830+) and Lewis Hogan (1784-1847)    One of the 3 males (age 0-9), is likely Sanders S. Hogan (1802).    That leaves 1 male 16-25, 2 males 0-9, and 1 female 10-15 unaccounted.

Above: Note Daniel Hogan and James Hogan – see their listing near the end for details. 

 

Above: Concerning to whom William Sanders Hogan (1826 to 1907) belongs:  The 1830 census shows the following males 0-4 years of age: William Hogan, Daniel Hogan, and Lewis Hogan.   Lewis Hogan has a son William D. Hogan who cannot be Wm. Sanders Hogan.   The name “Daniel” or “James does not show up in names of William Sander Hogan descendants.  So, we are best looking at the 2nd “generation William Hogan, Jr. as his father.  The 1st generation William Hogan must be ruled out as a father (at age 66) who possibly married 2nd late-in life to a much younger wife.  She would unlikely have a maiden name of Sanders.   The Sanders middle name negates this idea.

Partial Reconstruction of William Hogan + Jemima Sander’s Children

From Census records, his pension record, and other information  

 

              William Hogan’s pension application mentions brother James Hogan.  William’s pension papers continue with an 1855 Auditor’ report, stating pension there were payments from 1831 to 1836 directly to a lawyer who distributed payments to Jemimah Sanders, Elizabeth Bush, Sander. S. Hogan, and one other unnamed.  This one unnamed child should be Lewis Hogan (1784-1847).   In 1855, a pension inquiry by Sanders S. Hogan mentioned only sister Jemimah Sanders and himself who were now the only children still living.      

 

(D2-a).  Jemima Hogan (birthdate 1780’s and thought living 1855) married __ Sanders and has a gravestone in Smyrna United Methodist Church Cemetery, Elgin, Kershaw County, SC.   Birth date of 1781 on her findagraave.com listing site is not on her gravestone photo and could be an estimation.   On the pension, Sanders S. Hogan names her as his sister and is again noted living 1855 in a pension enquiry by Sanders S. Hogan.  For someone living so long, she is difficult to trace and cannot find her on the 1850 census.  William Sanders (1780/90) shows living very close to our Hogans on the 1840 census, but there is no evidence that the female (1780/90) is Jemima Sanders.  He disappears before 1850.  The time-line seems right and if this is Jemima, then this researcher (J. Murphy) speculates her birth date may be nearer to 1789.   See further comments under William Hogan, Junior’s writeup.

 

1830 US Census Kershaw Co., SC: William Sanders - 1 male + 1 female 0-4, 3 males 5-9, 2 males + 1 female 10-14, 1 male 15-19, 1 female 30-39, 1 male 40-49.

(D2-b). Lewis Hogan (1784 – 1847) married Mary Little, “Polly” (15 September 1788 to 11 April 1870).  Writeup follows later.

 

(D2-c). William Hogan, Jr. (1785/1790 to 1830/31) married Naomi __.   William Hogan, Jr. has Kershaw County deeds in 1811 and 1823 (with Lewis Hogan).  Writeup follows later.

(D2-e). Elizabeth Hogan (1806 to 1850/55) married Emanuel B. Rush (9 March 1803 to 22 December 1859). Elizabeth Hogan Rush is miss-spelled as Elizabeth Bush in her father William Hogan’s pension.  She was living in 1831 per William Hogan’s pension application in letter by Treasury Auditor and is not mentioned living in 1855 in her brother’s enquiry to William Hogan’s pension payments.

Emanuel B. Rush’s 1842 Kershaw County will was probated in 1859 court with the will witnessed by J.P. Richbourg, W.D. Hogan, Mary A. Hogan and John W. Rush.   Wife Elizabeth Rush was mentioned in the 1842 will and children named were (1) James E. Rush, (2) Susan J. Rush, (3) Sanders H. Rush, (4) John W. Rush, (5) Martha T or J Rush, (6) Mary Ann R.

2 - William Hogan, Jr. (~1785 to 1830/32) and wife Ima

 

(D2-c). William Hogan, Junior, (1785/90 to 1830/31) as noted with * in the 1820 US Census of Kershaw County, South Carolina married about 1818 to Naomi _ (ca1800 to 1840+).   The 1810, 1820, and 1830 census place his birthdate range to be about 1785-1790, but if he had children born earlier in about 1805, then his birthdate narrows closer to 1785.  More than one genealogy website has indicated his middle name is “Sanders,” but no original source mentions any middle name or initial.    After his death, his children remaining home appear to be living with Oma Hogan in 1840, who is most likely his widow Naomi.   Eric Tysinger mentions Equity papers from Laura Ann Hogan (husband Baron Dekaib Meyers) state her mother was Naomi (Hogan). *

1810 US Census of Kershaw County, South Carolina

*William Hogan, 3 males + 1 female 0-9, 1 female 10-15, 3 males + 1 female 16-25 (ages 1785-1794), 1 female 26-44, no blacks.  

 

Interpretation: No older male is listed (William Hogan, Sr. is missing but should be here).  The listed William Hogan should be Junior (~1785 to 1830/31) who is one of the three males 16-25 (born 1785-1794).  Second male 16-25 is Lewis Hogan (1794 to 1847).  Third male 16-25 could very well be James Hogan (1785/1790 to 1835), who could have joined this family after his father James Hogan (1758 to 1797/1800) died.  This placement is speculative. 

Of the three younger males 0-10 (born 1800-1810), one is Sanders S. Hogan (1802-1858), another speculatively could be Daniel Hogan (1804/05 – 1870 Alabama), and the remaining third one is not known.     Of the two daughters, one may be Jemima Hogan (born 1780’s) who married __ Sanders, possibly William Sanders, and the second daughter is Elizabeth Hogan (1806 to 1850+) who married Emanuel B. Rush (1803 to 1859).

       William Hogan, Jr:  Notice that there is a single young one, a 1 female born 0-10 (1810-1820).   This suggests he was married about 1818 unless there were older sons from the 1800’s?

*Oma Hogan – 1 female 5-9, 1 female 10-14, 2 males 15-19, 1 female 40-50, 0 blacks. 

 

This is a very “telling” census.  ancestry.com indexes “Oma Hogan” as “Ima Hogan,” but Oma spelling appears more correct.  Oma Hogan is possibly Naomi Hogan, rather than Ima as Jemima Hogan Sanders.  If she was Jemima Sanders, speculation is that this would be a Sanders surname listing. 

 

John Motley is one name above Oma Hogan.   There is a John Motley in Hogan deeds, also, a Sarah Motley (born 1809) who married Daniel Hogan (1804/05) in 1834, and a John Motley who was Executor of James Hogan, deceased’s estate in 1835.  The following 1840 census shows a number of Hogan relatives and associates who are listed near each other – John Motley, William Sanders, Lewis Hogan and Emanuel B. Rush:

In 1840 two names above Oma Hogan is a William Sanders who may or may not be the husband to Jemima Hogan Sanders.  Appears to be William Sanders, Jr.  Unable to find his will and more details.

Mary Hogan 60 “NC”, Harriet Hogan 35, Jacob Hogan 21 SC, Eugene Hogan 19 SC. Dwelling No. 212

 

              Above: Mary Hogan, age 62, is widow of Lewis Hogan, and appears to be taking care of the children of William Hogan, Junior, deceased, who died 1830 or 1831.   None of the named children belong to Lewis and Mary Little Hogan line.  This 1850 census listing is very helpful but does not completely prove that these were children of William Hogan, Junior.

4 - Possible Additional Hogan Who May or May Not Belong

This is a Hogan whose parents are not understood (x-1):

 

Daniel Hogan (1804/05-1870) + wife Sarah Motley

South Carolina and Alabama   

 

(x-1). Daniel Hogan (1804/05 “Columbia District” S.C. - per gravestone to 7 December 1870 and buried Mt. Hebron West Cemetery, Elmore, Co. Alabama per findagrave.com) married about 1828 to Sarah Motley (1809 “Columbia District” South Carolina per gravestone to 3 July 1869 and buried same cemetery).   No Kershaw County deeds could be found.   Columbia District” does not seem to exist, but Columbia (City), Richmond County, SC does.  Richmond County is the county that borders Fairfield and Kershaw Counties on their southern border with Twenty-five Mile Creek running through all 3 counties.  Richland County Courthouse burned several times and most records did not survive.  The Motley surname is also associated with William Hogan Sr. and Jr. deeds.  By 1835, Daniel Hogan and family had moved to Alabama, per 1850 census naming children’s State of birth.  This Alabama family is worth considering as the correct family line for the 1830 Kershaw County Daniel Hogan census.  

 

              Warning: This Daniel lived beyond William Hogan, Senior’s 1831 pension and statements in 1855 so that only Sanders. S. Hogan and his sister Jemima Sanders still were living.   Therefore, he was NOT a son of William Hogan, Senior.   So, to whom does he belong?  He may or may not be a son of William Hogan, Jr.   

 

1830 US Census of Kershaw County, South Carolina:  Census list is alphabetical; cannot tell who lived nearby.   Daniel Hogan – 1 male 0-4 (1826-1830), 1 male 10-15 (1815-1820), 1 male + 1 female 20-29.

 

              If Daniel Hogan’s wife was born 1809 (age 21 in 1830 census), then the male (1815-1820) is not their son.  The male 0-4 (born 1826-1830), name unknown, does not appear on the 1850 census, but could have already left home.  1
