Two William Hoggs in Nash County
The third and final question I have today is concerning two William Hoggs in Nash county, North Carolina. One is born in 1814(LC8R-BCH) and is my 4th great grandfather. The other is born in 1831(27VL-FL7), and was attached son of the first William Hogg. However, it is doubtful this is true because William Hogg(1) was married in 1840 to Rowena Strickland and I know of no other spouses prior to this.
The four censuses with William Hogg(1) in it from 1850 to 1880 are indexed with absurd birth ranges from 1794 to 1834. I think that the indexers simply misinterpreted bad handwriting from the census taker on a couple of censuses. However, it’s something that’s thrown me off because of the William Hogg born in 1834. The primary thing that kept me on the same page with them so far is their occupations and relationships.
William Hogg(2) has two sources backing him up. One is an 1860 census where he is a bootmaker in the household of William Frazier. The only other source I have for him is a marriage in 1865 to Harriet Winters. Again, I’m not sure if he’s the son of the first William or not, but I highly doubt it.
Am I missing something here? William Hogg(2) completely disappears after this. Could they be the same person, relatives, or are they totally unrelated. I’ll give you the names and ID’s once again at the bottom.
William Hogg(1): LC8R-BCH
William Hogg(2): 27VL-FL7
