Ruth, would one of William's sons be named John Anderson Hogue who moved to the N. LA area. I am currently researching John A. and found him in 1910 Lafayette Co AR and 1900 Columbia Co. AR. John was b. 1865 in GA.
John A. was married to Lula ? in 1900, and Susie Barnes Teague by 1910. Susie Barnes Teague was the widow of Nathaniel Teague, s/o Nathaniel and Martha (Hicks).
John's eldest daughter Annie Bell m. Jarose Jester, Nathaniel Teague's nephew, by sister Analiza and Levi Jester. Annie Bell was about 14 when she m. Uncle Rosie. In 1910, Annie Bell is 16 and Rosie is 32. And I believe she was b. in LA.
Now for the clincher for me. I have always felt that my Mother's and Father's lines were more connected than they knew. My Mother descends from Thomas J. Stell and Sallie Hogg, thru daughter Elizabeth and William Thornton. Thomas J. Stell was my mother's 2nd ggf.
Jarose Jester was my grandfather's brother, my Dad's line. Analiza Teauge m. Levi Jester after 1870, Levi was the son of Burgess Jester and Mary Hay. Mary d. 1860 as did Analiza's aunt Nancy, and Burgess and Nancy m. 1861. Uncle Rosie was one of Analiza's eldest children.
I think William D. is descended from a brother of Thomas J. and I am also hoping to find a connection between Martha Hogue and Sallie Hogg, since the Hogg's spelled their name Hogg/Hogue/Hoge.
Now, this doesn't make my parents related prior to their marriage, but it does make them related to the same people, if my theory proves out.
If John A. is William's son, or even brother, I have an email cousin who is descended from Annie Bell's 1/2 sister, I would be happy to put you in touch with.
