You need to read up on the Quaker dating system, and know that NO Quaker would ever have dated something February or July....too long and involved to go into, here....suffice to say2m, 5thd, 1711, or instance is NOT Feb 5th....so, if interested, read up...if not, leave the dates as found 2m, 5, 1711.Also, you'll find that if you're going to be researching Quaker ancestors, it is helpful to do some reading on the religion, which played a part in every aspect of Quaker life. For instance, Quakers could only marry other Quakers, so if your ancestor married someone NOT a Friend, they he would be disowned by the Quakers for 'marrying out'....they would no longer be a Quaker.Also, if you are familiar with the early Quaker settlements and their migratory routes in the east, you can follow them from state to state, meeting to meeting.This is very helpful as the Quakers were great record keepers.
You misread my email....I said I was related NOT to Mary, but to her sibling, so we are, indeed, cousins many times removed.As I have no relationship to Hoges, I have no data on them.Mary, YOUR ancestor, was the sister of Mishel, MY ancestor. Michael and Mary were 2 of the children of Jacob Jenkins and Elizabeth Roger, and mentioned in their father’s will in EARLY RECORDS OF HAMPSHIRE CO, Vaby Sage and Jones;
“Jenkins, Jacob 1785 probate 9-14-1795 w. Elizabeth; 8 children; Evan; Ann (to have land on which he now lives); Ruth; Michael; Jacob; John; Mary Hoge; Sarah Ann Gaddis; Jonathan (deceased had Children Mary, Israel, Jacob); Susannah, Elizabeth and Rachel Jenkins; nieces and nephews.”
Elizabeth Rogers[John], Michael and Mary's mother,was the daughter of John Rogers and wife Ellinor Pugh, who transferred to the Hopewell MM in Frederick Co, Va in 1744, coming from the Gwynedd MM in Montgomery Co, Pa, and this is recorded in the Hopewell Friends History.John Rogers died by May of 1763,and the inventory of his estate is recorded in the Frederick Co records, by his wife and son, Evan.
According to HISTORICAL RECORDS OF OLD FREDERICK CO, VA by Kerns “Jacob Jenkins was born ca 1725 and died 1795 on Timber Ridge, on the Hampshire Co side, in Bloomery Dist.
I see that before going to the Redstone meeting when they left from Hopewell, the first had membership in the Westlake MM, in Washington Co Pa 1789.1815m 4m 28, John Hoge Jr was disowned from the Redstone meeting...reason not included, but could this be when he married 'out'?Many of the Hoges seem to have gone to Ohio meetings...both the Short Creek meeting (Mt Pleasant, Jeff. Co, Ohio), and the Plainfield meeting, too...this was in the early to mid 1800s.
