This Chapter Has the Following Hogans

 

(Section-A). Hugh Hogan (ca1680) is noted in 1719-1742, first in a New Kent County, Virginia grant, next in Hanover County, Virginia merchant and land grant records.  His wife is never named.  Hanover County and New Kent Courthouse records cannot help us because most records have been lost.   When he died in 1743/44, he had a son named Zachariah Hogan who was not yet adult age.   Zachariah Hogan later wrote that he had a brother by the name of William Hogan.   Not enough information exists to make this family reconstruction certain, but clues do suggest the following presentation.  Recent findings now indicate his sons to be William Hogan and Zachariah Hogan.

 

(Part-A). William Hogan “I” (ca1710 to 27 December 1789 Goochland, Co., VA); Married 1st to Mary Mills (1720s – 1796+), daughter of Charles & Ann Mills.  Married 2nd ~1785 to Susannah _ (Williams?) – (use SH-1 to track 2nd wife).  He was a merchant in Hanover Co., planter in Louisa Co., an American Revolutionary Soldier in Virginia’s Continental Army, and final days in Goochland Co., VA.  Children:

(A-1). James Hogan (1735/40 to ~1825 Bedford Co. VA) + _ + Mary Peers. Detailed in A-1. Children:

(A1a). Peter Hogan (died 1777), (A1b). John Hogan (died 1777), (A1c). David Hogan (died 1776), (A1d). Elizabeth Hogan (1779-1859) + Solomon Harris, (A1e). Overton Hogan, (A1f). Elisha Hogan, (A1g) Poly Hogan, (A1h) James Hogan “II,” (A1i) Milly Hogan, (A1j) Anna Hogan. 

(A-2). William Hogan “II” (ca1745 to ~1780 in American Revolution).  No heirs. 

(A-3). Elizabeth Hogan

(A-4). Francis Hogan

(A-5). Ann Hogan + John Mallory

(A-6) John M. Hogan (born 1786); Mother is Susanna Hogan (SH-1)

(A-7). Lucy Hogan (born 1790); Mother is Susanna Hogan.  Documented by Goochland Co. Court.  Yes, they are really the children of William Hogan “I.”  (SH-1) 

 

(Part-B). Zachariah Hogan (ca1724/30 to 1787 will) + wife, likely a daughter of John Power.  Children:

(B-1). Hugh Hogan (died 1790); (B-2) Molly Hogan; (B-3) Susanna Hogan

(B-4). John Hogan (ca1745 – 1798 Garrard Co. Kentucky) + Elizabeth Penax likely belong here because of naming patterns.  Downside: Zach – John age separation.  See their separate chapter.  Children: (C4a). Lewis Hogan; (CBb) Edmund Hogan; (C4c) Zachariah Hogan (1783 to 1849 Adams Co. Illinois) + Delilah Marksberry + Elizabeth Doty; (C4d). Sarah Hogan (~1790 to 1866 Switzerland Co. Indiana) + Samuel Mennet; (C4e) John M. Hogan (~1788 to 1865 Fayette County, Kentucky) + Margaret Ann Baker; (C4f) William Hogan (1790/95 to beyond 1825+) + Mary Arnold + Polly Board; (C4g) Elizabeth Hogan; (C4h) Elihu Hogan (~1788 to 1850+) + Isabella Roety

 

(Section-B). John Hogan (ca1715/20 to 1791+) + Judith _ (1730s – 1800+).    Poorly understood and would expect a son named John Hogan, Jr., but no evidence yet.  Mixes with William Hogan ‘I.”  Children:

(B/1). Daniel Hogan, noted on a 1771 tax with John Hogan and in 1794.   Cannot trace.

(B/2) – possibly: Isaiah Hogan, noted only once in 1794.  Not understood and cannot trace.        

 

(Section-C). John Hogan (ca1745-<1806 Va.) + Eleanor Cootes (1758 to 1847 Harrison Co. Indiana).   Unknown relationship to the above Hogans.  Children are: (C-1) John Hogan (1786 to 1852) + Polly Martin, (C-2) Rebekah Hogan (1781), (C-3) Patsy Hogan + John King, (C-4) Sally Hogan + Stephan Cootes, (C-5) possibly - William Hogan.

 

(Section-D). Comments about Philip Hogan in 1701 & 1736-1755 Hanover County, and a Prosser Hogan in 1756.

 

(Section-E). Obadiah Hogan (ca1770? – 1818) of Bedford Co., VA who may or may not be associated with James Hogan.  Children of Obadiah Hogan are: (E-1) Charles Hogan, (E-2) Patsy Hogan married Francis Turner, (E-3) Enos Hogan, (E-4) Obadiah Hogan II, (E-5) Samuel Hogan, (E-6) Daniel Hogan, (E-7) Joseph Hogan, (E-8) Nancy Hogan married James Creasy, (E-9) Margaret Hogan married John Adams, (E/10) Polly Hogan married Charles Crouch.  Also, (E-x1) Private Zachariah Hogan, US Army, born 1794 in Bedford Co., VA to unknown parents.  

 

              Comments from this searcher – JM:  This Hogan reconstruction has presented many difficulties.  To begin with: The family reconstruction keeps changing with new information.   James Hogan, Zachariah Hogan, and John Hogan are better presented in their own subsections - A-1, Part-B, and Section-C.   Many puzzles continue, including - James Hogan has personal and land taxes in two counties – is this a problem?   About 1796, William Hogan and John Hogan records become very confusing:  William Hogan (ca1710) appears to have two different wives during this time, or does a key record have the wrong date?  These and other puzzles need solving.

 

Overview for Hanover County, Virginia Courthouse Records

 

Louisa County was established 1742 from Hanover County, Virginia and has lost its 1810 US Census.   Hanover was established 1720 from New Kent County whose court house burned down several times.  Hanover records were mostly lost, but tax records from 1782 exist.   “ca” with a date (i.e., ca1750) refers to a roughly estimated date that could easily change with better information.   Dates such as ~1750 have a better basis but still are estimates.

 

(Section-1) Hugh Hogan (ca1680 to 1743/44) of Hanover County, Virginia (also Part-B)

 

Little is known about Hugh Hogan.  There is no clue to his birth date and the name of his wife.   Merchant records indicate he had at least one son named Zachariah Hogan.  Useful clues showing Hugh Hogan’s son - Zach Hogan one son “Hugh Hogan” and mentioned one brother - William Hogan.   Hogans had lands in the same general location as Hugh Hogan. Merchant books indirectly show (do not prove) that William Hogan assisted widow Hogan during Hugh’s estate settlement.     

 

1719 February 20 – New Kent County, Virginia Land Grant: Thomas Jones of the City of Williamsburg, 3273 acres of new land in New Kent County in the fork of Pamunkey River, the Little & New Found Rivers, on south side the Little River., a little above Hugh Hogan’s plantation, adjacent King’s land, Charles Fleming, Thomas Nelson and Thomas Jones.  Importation of 66 persons: (including) Wm. Hogan.

This description is the best we have to locate Hugh Hogan’s lands.  The Thomas Jones’ land appears to be in today’s northeastern Hanover County.  It is west of the North Anna River and the Hanover/Caroline County border.  The importation of the above William Hogan adds mystery.

 

              “Imported” means headrights.  For every person Jones imported/paid to bring to the colonies, he received 50 acres of land as “headrights.”  In exchange, William Hogan would be contracted as an indentured servant for a period of time.   This might be for seven years.   Questions become:  This imported William Hogan seems very young to be our subject, which suggests his estimated birth date may need to be revised earlier.   Also, where is John Hogan in all this and how did he get to America?  In 1820, Hanover County was established from New Kent.

Hanover Court Records – Davis, page 67, (original page 267-268), as found on ancestry Message Boards, Gary Violette, posted 5 March 2007.   

 

      Apparently, a small book of Hanover Court Records survived for the years 1734-1735.  Hogans Swamp may or may not be Hogan Creek found in later records.

1781 April 19 – Douglas Register: “Jo. Hoggan” married on 19 April 1781 to “Eliz: Pinax,” and includes “both of Louisa County.”   They are entered into the Douglas Register marriage records in the marriage section which was directly recorded by him.  Also, surname is spelled Penix or Penax.

The Douglas Register, edited by W. Mac Jones 1928, page 26.

 

“The Douglas Register” was kept by Rev. William Douglas from 1756 until near the time of his death in 1798.  Records covered birth, marriages, and deaths of St. James Northam Parish of Goochland County and encompassed others with marriages and birthdates from nearby areas not directly handled by him.  The book is 412 pages long.  This researcher (J. Murphy) finds some confusion whereby both marriage dates and birth/baptism dates sometimes are written the same.     

 

1781 December 4 - Douglas Register: John Hoggan” married to “Helener Couts” on 4 December 1781, and stated this marriage was from a birth record and not taken directly by Reverend William Douglas.    

The Douglas Register, edited by W. Mac Jones 1928, page 108, 213. 

 

Douglas Register also records for John Hoggan and Eleanor Couts, the birth of their daughter Rebekah, born 4 December 1781 and Baptized 21 February 1782.   The last two dates for Rebeckah Hogan may be accurate but not the parent’s marriage date.   The Douglas Register recorded this marriage under a separate section listed “Marriages not recorded by Rev. Wm. Douglas but indicated by the Birth Registry.”  They apparently did not live in St. James-Northam Parish.

Age 76 seems very old and his reported age raises questions.

1786 – Hanover County, Virginia: Thos. Jackson, of Louisa County & Ann his wife, Nicholas Mills of Hanover, David Anderson of Hanover, merchant, Elizabeth his wife, Ann Dinguid of Powhatan, widow, Wm. Dinguid of Buckingham & Lucy his wife, Wm. Hogan of Louisa & Mary his wife, and Ann Mills, widow of Charles Mills, appoint William Anderson of America Square, City of London, their attorney to recover (inheritance money) from Richard Neave, of New Broad Street London, to call acct. the administration of Dr. Josiah Cole and Wm. Mowatt.    

 

              Richard Neave had collected money from the Manor of Eastwood Estate of Wm. Hammond, deceased of Stepney Parish, Middlesex County, England.   The estate money was to go to his uncle – William Clopton and any of his children living at the time of the Hammond’s death.   Apparently, the Manor of Eastwood had long ceased to function.  The unidentified writer for this article concluded that money from the estates had already gone to pay debts and other persons.

Overview from Tyler’s Quarterly - Hanover and Louisa Counties, Virginia: “The (family) lines of Nicholas and Charles Mills, positively sons of the Charles Mills who died 1764, son of Nicholas Mills and Ann Clopton, have been traced to the extent of the writer’s knowledge (see above entry).  Apparently, Charles had also daughters Mary who married William Hogan and Elizabeth who married Jas. Burnley.  Our first mention of William Hogan is in Louisa (Rec. DB B/319), February 6, 1759, when David and Elizabeth Anderson of St. Martin’s Parish Hanover, deed to William Hogan of Fredricksville Parish, 400 acres which David Anderson had purchased Dec. 31, 1757, from Thos. Emmerson.  William Hogan died intestate in 1794 (WB 3/571) on Dec. 8, 1794, James Hogan with Chas. Jackson as his security gives bond to administer on the estate.  In Louisa (Rec. DB K/92) July 8, 1805, William Mallory, James Hogan, Frances and Elizabeth Hogan deed to Mary Hogan their share of Wm. Hogan’s land on Little River, of which he died seized and possessed.”   Question is Mary Hogan – the widow or a daughter?

Wait a minute!  William Hogan and wife Mary?  What happened to William Hogan and 2nd wife Susanna?  That’s the 1796 date as written in the source, but must be wrong!   The date has to be at least 10 or more years earlier.  Hanover lost most of its records, but has land and personal tax lists from 1782 to 1809+.    There is no William Hogan.    Also, this source states it is from “Larger Book” of Hanover County, Land Records (a deed book had been saved) which gives entries from 1780 to 1790’s.  The original Larger Book needs to be reviewed.

Children of William Hogan “I” (ca1710 – 1794) + Mary Mills:  

 

(A-1) James Hogan (1735/40 to 1825)

 

His birth date was first is estimated based on a 1769 tax record and that he had reached a taxable age of 21.  However, he had three sons who served into the American Revolution.  This would push back his estimated birth year to ~1735/40.   Calculations to estimate his birth year:

                      1777 – year several sons died in Revolution War

                        - 16 - youngest age to become a Private in Revolutionary War

                   = 1761 - birth year for a son (and earlier with 3 sons). 

 

             Next is earliest estimated age when James Hogan married:

                        1761 – youngest birth date for a son in Revolutionary War

                         – 21 - speculative early age for a male parent to be married

                      = 1741 - birth date.  With 3 sons in war, a better estimate is 1735/40. 

 

His birth year estimate still raises questions.  He had two marriages, the 1st with an unnamed wife and 2nd with Mary Peers 12 April 1790.   The daughter – Elizabeth Hogan (1779-1859 Hanover Co., Va.) is evidence of this earlier marriage, and his son Overton Hogan who lived nearby in 1800-1804.

 

Details for James Hogan (1735/40 to 1825)

 

1769 Trinity Parish, Louisa County, Virginia: This is the first record for James Hogan and includes his father - William.  This is excellent evidence for father – son relationship. 

Hogan, James; William Senr. – 2 polls

Hogan, William; Sue – 2 polls, 325 acres

Hogan, John 1 – 200 acres.   

 

Keep in mind that counties separated two persons with the same name by using “senior” for oldest and “junior” for the youngest.  They did not have to be father-son or even related.  In general, the second Hogan name listed on the same line was a son, as seen below.

Elizabeth Hogan, the daughter of the 1st wife of James Hogan becomes an important clue linking Louisa/Hanover’s James Hogan to the James Hogan who reappears in Bedford County.   location is still unclear.

(A-2). William Hogan, Jr. or “II” (ca1745 to ~1776).  Birth date is based on 1768 tax record if age 17.   He has no heirs and probably did not marry.  

 

~1780 (uncertain of year) – Revolutionary War: “William Hogan, Jr,” soldier, infantry, whose name appeared in the Army Register but had not received bounty land.

 

1831 October __ - Louisa County, Va: “The affidavit of John Fleeman Senior of Lawful age taken at his house on 6 October 1831 deposeth and saith that on the 16th day of August 1780 near Camblin (Camden) at General Gateses defeat (Battle of Camden, August 15-16, 1780) he saw William Hogan a Continental soldier of the Revolution fall in the line of battle & view to him afterward and considered him dead.”

1832 May 19 - Revolutionary War Land Grant:  Exec. Dept. (May 19, 1832).  “The heirs of William Hogan are allowed land bounty for service during the war as a Private in the (Virginia) Continental Line, John Floyd, Governor.   Louisa County Court – Anthony Winston made oath that early in the war of the Revolution, William Hogan enlisted for the war under Captain Thomas Johnson of Louisa County, Virginia and that he ‘always heard and firmly believes that said William Hogan fell in battle somewhere to the south, and that Mary, Elizabeth and Frances are the sisters and only heirs of said William Hogan.’”  Sworn to before William Waddy, J.P. (20 November 1831).    Another entry in this source states this land was issued in the name of Mary, Elizabeth and Francis Hogan.   William Scott was the agent to whom the script was delivered.

One must be careful here, the term “heirs” usually refers to descendants of a deceased person.   If that person never married or had a no family, then the heirs broaden to include the subject’s brothers and sisters.   This reference is unclear and doesn’t state the married names of these sisters in 1832.

              Children of Zachariah Hogan and _ per will:

(B-1). Hugh Hogan (died ~1790)

(B-2). Molly Hogan

(B-3). Susanna Hogan.  See 1790 listing above.

(B-4). John Hogan (ca1745 to ~1806 VA)

(B-5). Daniel Hogan – not in 1787 will.

 

(Section-B). John Hogan (ca1735 to 1791+) and wife Judith _):

 

              This John Hogan makes his first appearance at the Partridge & Co., Store in Hanover County in 1756.   In 1758 John Hogan and wife Judith sell 140 acres in Louisa County, but we do not know when the land was purchased.  They remain in Louisa County until about 1771 with his last Louisa Tax including (presumably) his son Daniel Hogan.  After that, John Hogan moves on to Goochland County where intermittent records are made until 1789.   Other than a son named Daniel Hogan, his other children are vague.   At no time can his researcher state - there is a son named John Hogan “II” or Jr., although the possibility exists.  

 

This John Hogan, Sr. does not appear to be a brother of William Hogan “I” simply because William had a very late son - John M. Hogan who was living at the same time as our subject here.  While in Goochland County, there is a John Hogan taxed in 1783 and 1784 Louisa County, who could be John Hogan who married Elizabeth Penax.  Most confusing!

              There are two ways of looking at the Bowles – Hogan relationship.   First could be John Hogan married a Bowles.  Second, Rebecca Hogan is her married name.  Perhaps, a Bowles will could help if one exists.

(Section-C).  John Hogan who married Eleanor Couts/Coots/Cootes/Coats

 

John Hogan (ca1750’s to before 1813) who married Eleanor Couts/Coots (1758 to 1847 Harrison Co. Indiana):    The Douglas Register states “John Hoggan” married “Helener Couts” on 4 December 1781 at a location not named.*   Later records show her first name as Eleanor.   This family line is traceable to Harrison County, Indiana.   Family Bible in possession of James Darby of Clarksville, Indiana states Eleanor Hogan, mother of John Hogan, was born December 1758 and died 27 March 1847 at age 89.**   Their back-trail to a primary Virginia county needs to be found.  The Virginia State Census of 1782/1787 notes three persons with the closest spelling to Coots or Couts are William Coutts x 2 and Reuben Coutts, all living in 1782 Henrico County, Virginia (census lacks Hanover County).  ***   Relationship to the above Hogans is unknown.

Details for John Hogan (1750s to before 1806) + Eleanor Coots

 

1781 December 4 - Douglas Register: John Hoggan” married to “Helener Couts” on 4 December 1781, and stated this marriage was from a birth record and not taken directly by Reverend William Douglas.  

The Douglas Register, edited by W. Mac Jones 1928, page 28, 108.  This is the St. James Northam Parish Register made by Reverend William Douglas with marriage and some birth records from the surrounding area.

Nelly Hogan (chargeable) and John Hogan (1 white tithable), 0 0 0   Both names are not in 1807-1812 taxes.  Nelly is a nickname for Helen, Ellen, Eleanor and several other names.  Believe this is Eleanor Coots/Couts of Louisa County, Virginia who married John Hogan (1750’s to before 1806):  The 1806 John Hogan is most likely Nelly’s son (born 30 December 1786) and not her husband.  This also increases the possibility that the 1806 William Hogan is also a son, perhaps slightly older.

Children of John Hogan + Eleanor Couts/Coots, as currently known are: (1), (2), etc

 

(C1a). John Hogan, Jr. (30 December 1786 Goochland County, Virginia and died 4 August 1852 Harrison Co. Indiana and is buried at Martin-Hogan-Long Cemetery) *    This John Hogan married Polly Martin on 4 November 1813 at Shelby County, Kentucky (county record).  

* findagrave.com

 

(C1b). Rebecah Hogan, daughter of John Hogan, was Baptized 21 February 1782.   Douglas Register states “Jo: Hoggan & Helener Couts, a child named Rebekah, born Dec. 4. 1781; Baptized 21 February 1782.”   Note again the marriage date and birth date are the same and this the 3rd time the transcriptionist has been noted to make the same a birth and marriage dates; most likely the marriage date is wrong.  Also, Rebekah is likely to be another name for one of her sisters. 

  * The Douglas Register, edited by W. Mac Jones 1928, page 213.

 

(C1c). Sally Hogan / Sarah Hogan married Stephen Cootes in Shelby County, Kentucky on 12 October 1808 (county record).

(C1d). Patsy Hogan married John King in Shelby County, Kentucky on 16 October 1813 (county record).  

(C1e). possibly – William Hogan who shows up in the 1806 Henrico County tax record which also lists John and Nellie Hogan.  These three are the only Hogan names that show up Henrico tax records from 1783 to 1812.   If he is a son to John + Nellie Hogan and this is his first tax record, then his birth date can be estimated 1806 - 17= 1789, if his age was about 17.   

 

(Section-D). Short Summary About Philip, Prosser, and David Hogan

Hanover County, Virginia – whose county records failed to survive  

 

Merchant records also indicated there is another Hogan line in Hanover County during this era.  This is Philip Hogan.  Included a single record, there is a Prosser Hogan in 1755 or 1756.  This Prosser Hogan in Hanover County is not the same Prosser Hogan (1761/62 – 1830) of Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky.   Philip Hogan Jr. can be found in later records in Orange County, Virginia between 1761-1769.   Their details are in the Prosser Hogan review which are still too incomplete to reconstruct families.  See the “Prosser, Phillip, and David Hogan Review” in their separate chapter for details.

 

(Section-E). Obadiah Hogan (ca1770 to 1818)

 and Zachariah Hogan (1794) of Bedford County, Virginia

 

              James Hogan (1835/40-1825) and descendants are one line in Bedford County, but there were other Bedford Hogans whose origins have not understood. 

 

This includes Obadiah Hogan (ca1770 to 1818) whose birth date is not known, but roughly estimated ca1770 until better information is found.   A Bedford County Chancery Court beginning in 13 April 1849 gives information on his wife and children.  Wife was Margaret Mitchell.
