The following data on Richard Hoag was collected from members of the old Hoag Interest Group when it was still active during the 1995 - ~2000 timeframe.Some of this info has been posted previously on this forum.For the data on the children see my post #77 on this forum.
John Hoag was the son of Richard & Joan "Hogg" or "Hogge" of Boston. The name in the Boston records appears mostly as "Hogge" or "Hogg" but in one entry as"Hodges" as a witness to a deed, 7 July 1645.Richard and Joan are recorded as being in Boston not later than December 1636 when their son Joseph was born.
