In the Ogden lines there's a big mystery. An Ezekiel Ogden (direct ancestor of mine) married an Abigail Brant or Brandt and/or Tichnor or Tichenor around 1800. Someone suggested Abigail was a Mohawk and that info is being cut and pasted all over the internet. You know how that works!
I know that Ogden family came from Elizabethtown, NJ, to either Binghamton or Chenango, NY, in the late 1700s. Abigail was born, according to apparently second-hand records, in 1775. In many records she's listed as "Abigail Brandt or Tichnor."
She gave birth to her first child by 1794, so I doubt she was married before, though of course it's possible. However, having done genealogy research for some friends I've discovered that it was as popular in the 18th century as it is today to name a child after a popular figure -- there were hundreds of "Lorenzo Dows" in the early 1800s, e.g., named after a popular itinerant preacher in early America. So I'm wondering if Abigail was named in honor of the Mohawk Brants but only because her family had dealings with them or some sibling or relative married one of them. (Another line of mine in 19th century New York has two children named for an aunt's prominent husband!).
So that's my query on this line, where I may or may not be a cousin to you all (heh). Any connections with Chief Joseph Brant among your ancestors???
