I forgot to write the post itself. Sorry about that.
To whom it may be concerned,
Greetings, my name is Benjamin Jones, and I am currently researching William Hogg(1814-before 1900) and his wife Rowena Strickland(1816-?).
My question is concerning Rowena’s parents. I have heard two possibilities, one of which I assume is probably correct, but I do not know which. The first is Jesse Strickland and the second is Zadock Strickland.
Jesse Strickland is proposed to be the father of Rowena Strickland according to the family history record of my great great aunt Vada. She was the great granddaughter of William Hogg. She said that her grandmother’s(Temperance Jane Hogg; 1850-1891) grandfathers were Richard Hogg and Jesse Strickland.
That would mean that Temperance’s parents are William Hogg and Rowena Strickland(which is true) and that William’s father is Richard Hogg and Rowena’s father is Jesse Strickland. I think the first of these is incorrect because of the following reason. William Hogg was born sometime in 1814, while Richard Hogg married Isley Eatman on November 25th, 1824. I think William Hogg’s real parents are Levi Hogg and Martha Ricks(Levi is Richard’s brother), but again, some of the dates could be wrong. The only truly confirmed date on here is Richard’s marriage date, while the others are approximations based on census data.
I don’t know as much about Jesse Strickland as I do about the other proposed candidate, Zadoc Strickland. I’ve seen two proposed marriages of Jesse Strickland; the first to Rachel Tew in 1807 at Sampson county and the second to Sallie Bunn in 1815 at Wake County. From looking at both marriages and sets of children, I think two different Jesse Stricklands have been merged together(Rachel died in 1845 in Georgia, so she didn’t die before 1815 resulting in Jesse marrying a second time by 1815), but right now I haven’t gathered the proof to back that one up.
The other proposed candidate is someone I do know more about. Zadock Strickland married Susana Hammonds first in about 1807 in Wake county and then married Rebecca Wiggins in Franklin county in about 1854. Zadock has a will written around 1860 that mentions a Reany Strickland, but that is a different Reany who married Hilliard Henry Perry in December 29th, 1836. If I had to guess, maybe Rowena’s parents are Jesse Strickland and Sallie Bunn, but honestly I don’t know right now. If you have any information about who Rowena’s parents might be and why, I’d really appreciate it. I’m also a little on the fence about the William Hogg situation, but I have more source material on that. Thank you for your time.
In Family Tree, William's parents ARE Levi Hogg and Martha Ricks. Rowena's mother is just "Martha" and there is no father listed. There's a person who made a change just today. Her name is Patricia Banks and I happen to know her. She is very thorough in her research. You may want to contact her. @Patricia Banks You can send her a personal message by clicking on her name here.
