I am researching a Grogan family from Calhoun County and Wilcox County, Alabama.
In the U.S. Census for 1860 in Alabama, Calhoun Co.,Ranges 5, 6, and 7, they are listed as follows:
* Baryallai Grogan, age 22, farmer, value of personal property: $50, born in Virginia.(head of household)
* Elizabeth Grogan, age 18, born in Alabama. (wife)
* John Grogan, age 9 months, born in Alabama.
In the U.S. Census for 1870 in Alabama, Wilcox Co., Prairie Bluff, they are listed as follows:
* B. Grogan, age 32, born in Tennessee, farmer, father "of foreign birth." (head of household)
* Elizabeth Grogan, age 30, born in Georgia. (wife)
* John W. Grogan, age 10, born in Alabama.
* Robert T. Grogan, age 8, born in Alabama.
* Joseph E. Grogan, age 6, born in Alabama.
* Nancy J. Grogan, age 7 months (error in census, should be 7 years old), born in Alabama.
John W. Grogan's middle name was possibly Wesley. Nancy J. Grogan's middle name was Jane.
Three of the children of this family, John W., Robert T. Nancy J.("Nannie"), along with three additional siblings: Emma T., and George, end up in Hill Co., Texas, District 71. In the 1880 census, the children are living as boarders with Allen and Elizabeth Witty, ages 27 and 22.
In the Civil War Archives ofthe U.S. National Archives, there is:
* B. Grogan, Company C, Unit: Hardie's Battalion, Cavalry Reserves, Alabama (Confederate), Rank: Private.
There is a record of marriage: "Name: B. Grogan; Spouse: Elizabeth Smith; Marriage Date: 22 Mar 1857; County: Calhoun; State: Alabama."
Does anyone have any other information about this family group? I have quite a bit of information on their descendants.
