Re: Robert _T._ Ogden
RE: > THE ENGLISH ANCESTORS AS SHOWN IN THE BOOK "OGDEN FAMILY IN AMERICA"BY WILLIAM OGDEN WHEELER.THE INFORMATION REGARDING THE ANCESTRY IN ENGLAND PRIOR TO COMING TO AMERICA IS FRAUDULENT.(SEE MY POST #2845 ON THIS FORUM)...
That's very interesting - and I believe it.The info. I have came to my mother-in-law (now 97) maybe 30-40 years ago from someone who had either hired a professional genealogist or got it from someone who did (she was definitely not online and never participated in any email or family history forums) - but I have tended to distrust such sources.That's one of the reasons I didn't include details after a certain point.I will definitely go search for your Post #1845 shortly.
Should I accept the "Jonathan John Ogden" and wives "Martha Robert" and "Mariah Collins" as being in the realm of possibility?It's that last connection or two that I'm looking for in particular - Robert Ogden's parents and siblings, date/place of birth - and was hoping that at least that end of things was correct since I have portions of it from a different set of notes.

Daniel’s parents were Jonathan John Ogden & Mariah Collins (the 2nd wife) - and, Robert T. was born to the same father and his first wife, Martha Robert. >
I really thank you for your time and attention - and will see if there's anyway I can follow up on the names you mentioned from the census.
