I have been told that I am related to Robert Poage (1700-1774) and Elizabeth Preston (1705-1759), both from Ireland.However the connection is through my grandmother, Myrtle Naomi (Pogue) Johnson (1901-1985) of Chatsworth, California.Note the surname change.
I wanted to know if anyone has information that could verify such a connection and help me confirm my records, so I could trace my roots in that direction.
My Pogue/Poage information is as follows and I wouild appreciate any information:

(1817-?, of KY) s/o John Hopkins Pogue (1783-1876, of Upper Tract, VA) + Jane Hopkins (1789-1863, of Rockingham Co., VA) [and this is where the name change occurs] s/o Robert Poage (1752-1814, of Ashland, KY) + Mary Hopkins (abt 1760-AFT. 1814, of ?) s/o John Poage(ABT. 1726-?, of Ireland) + Mary Crawford (?, of VA?) s/o Robert Poage (Bet. 1699 - 1700 - Bet. 1773 - 1774, of Ireland) + Elizabeth Preston (Abt. 1705- Bet. 1755 - 1759, of Derry, Ireland)
