If you have been on the Ogg Board long you have seen my endless questions about the origin of Andrew F. Ogg. I recently recieved information that my Andrew is likely the son of George Ogg and Rachel Friend. George was the brother of Vachel Ogg from my understanding.
This Andrew is said to have been born about 1810 which matches the time frame of the Andrew I have been seeking. If anyone has any information to help me that would be wonderful.
This is what I have so far:
Most all records I have found him on it states he was born in Pennsylvania.
He married Deborah Carr on February 7, 1850 in Athens County, Ohio.
On the 1850 Ohio, Athens County, Ames Twp. Census it shows:
Andrew F. Ogg, age 42, Carpenter
Deborah, age 28
William, age 18, Carpenter (assuming son from prior marriage)
On the 1860, Athens County, Rome Twp. Census it shows:
Andrew F. Ogg, age 55, Carpenter
Deborah, age 38
Mary, age 8
John W., age 6
Andrew A., age 5 (Ancil A.)
Samuel C., age 6 1/2 months
On the 1870, Athens County, Rome Twp. Census it shows:
Andrew Ogg, age 65, House Carpenter, born in PA
Deborah, age 50, Keeping House, born in PA
Mary, age 18, Teaching, born in OH
John, age 16, Farmer, born in OH
Ancil, age 14, At school, born in OH
Samuel, age 10, At school, born in OH
and living next door to them at this time was Thomas Carr and his wife Linn and family. I suspect Thomas could be Deborah's younger brother??
Our family decends from the youngest son Samuel Carleton Ogg. His obituary stated that he was born in New England Town, Athens County, Ohio on January 31, 1862, but looking at the census records tell me he was probably born in 1860 insted. He ended up moving to Shelton, Washington and marrying Ada Delvina Johnston on November 30, 1891. He died in Shelton on Sept. 30, 1935. The majority of his decendants still live in the Shelton, Mason County area.
Samuel and Ada had four children:
Mary Vera Ogg b. Apr. 17, 1897
Dorothy Alice Ogg b. May 15, 1902
Charles Francis Ogg b. Mar 28, 1905
Carleton Andrew Ogg b. Mar 28, 1905 (twins)
His older brother Ancil A. Ogg ( I am assuming the a is for Andrew) also came to Washington State and settled in the Yakima/Ellensburg area. He was born in Ohio about 1856. He married Lucy C. Leonard in Yakima, WA on Dec. 10, 1887. He died on Nov. 20, 1898 in Yakima County of Typoid Fever.
Ancil and Lucy had two sons:
Fred L. Ogg b. 1888
Phillip A. Ogg b. Abt. 1891
My task now is to connect my Andrew F. Ogg to his father and George sounds like a likely subject.
