Re: Cogill,Cogell,Cogle In Nova Scotia
My Cogill research is far from complete and furthermore I am not even sure if they are mine. I am looking for Daniel Henry Cogell born about 1850 in Cole Harbour,Halifax Co. These Cogills are from Cole Harbour and surrounding area Guysborough Co.
Daniel Cogill born about 1757 died 1804 and wife margaret born about 1762 had the following children:
John born 1778-1782
Catherine born 1779-1783
Anne born May 21,1786 died Feb 3,1790 at age 5
Margaret born May 24,1788 died Nov.28,1835 in Lawrencetown,Halifax Co.
Alexander born DEc. 24,1790
Ann born Jan. 29,1793
Daniel born Sept. 13,1794
John born 1782 died Easter Passage oct.11,1841 at the age of 59. Mariage bond posted July 18,1805 for John and Ann Bisset. They had the following known children:Sarah Ann,Margaret and jSophia but the Cole Harbour Hal. Co. census for 1827 says there were 5 males over age 16 (not head) and 3 under 16 as well as 5 females. It is Possible that my Daniel Henry Cogell was the grandson of this John but I don't know for sure.
Catherine married Tho as Brown DEc. 30,1799. She may also have married a James Fisher.
Margaret born May 24,1788 married Samuel Gammon July,1822 in Cole Harbor,Hal. Co. After she died,he moved to Bathurst,N.B. I think they had children but I don't have that info in front of me.
Alexander born Dec. 24,1790 married Ann.
Ann born Jan 29,1793-no info.
Daniel born Sept. 13,1794 married Elizabeth and had:
Margaret born 1819
Donald born 1821
Robert born 1828 died 1829
Catherine Ann born 1832
Mary Jane born 1835
John 1818 married Isabella Wilson and had the following children:
Mellissa Ann born 1844
William born 1846
Elizabeth born 1848
John Godfrey born 1851
Hugh Charles born 1854
Donald born 1856
On the 1881 census Isabella Cogill is still lsited as living in N.S. with son Donale born about 1858. A william Cogill also lived in St. George,Charllot County N.B. and he was born 1850 in N.S. so more than likely the same family.
Also on that site is Mary and Daniel in the 1880 U.S. census for Glocester,Essex,Mass.
I hope this is of some use to you. When I have all my data typed up I will sent it on to you.
I have to thank Cindy Cogill and Thomas Giammo for much of the info that I have.
