I have been to several message boards and each one comes up with a different answer.Maybe someone can straighten things out.
On one message board, Joseph Pogue father of Zachariah and Eli Pogue was married to Elizabeth Duncan and another has Elizabeth Martin, yet someone else has that he married Elizabeth by a different name (escapes me at the moment). Does anybody know the truth.
Also, in the 1850 Lewis Co., TN census, it lists Elizabeth as being 51 and Zachariah as 40.Doesn't sound right.Now I can see that maybe Martha A Pogue in that census could be the mother as she is listed as 58. Hmm, interesting.
Did Joseph have any siblings?Was his father really Joseph?Surely, with all of the Pogues out there, someone must have the answers.I'm sure that other Pogue cousin would like to know also.
I am related to the Pogues through my paternal g-grandmother, Rebecca Jane, daughter of Eli.I sure would appreciate it if anyone can come up with the answers.
By the way, I was also brought up with my family telling me that we were Cherokee also, but like everyone else unable to prove it.
