This is Donald B. Reagan who have authored SMOKY MOUNTAIN CLANS, Volume 1, 2, and 3, Revised Edition, and THE BOOK OF RAGAN/REAGAN, and other genealogical publications on the pioneer families of Sevier County, Tennessee.
I want to make my comment on the picture of William Ogle and his wife Martha Huskey Ogle in various publications in Sevier County, Tennessee.
One picture that they claimed it to be William Ogle is NOT authentic.The primary reason is that William Ogle who married Martha Huskey have died in 1803 in Edgefied District, South Carolina a very long time before the photography was ever invented in 1839. The secondary reason is that I have had been told privately in person by anonymous person that the picture was NOT William Ogle at all.It belonged to somebody else. So, the identity of that person in the picture is unknown.
It is by anonymous personÕs statement that it was falsely indentified.
Another picture that they claimed it to be Martha Huskey Ogle, wife of William Ogle, is NOT authentic. The two reasons are the same as I have given on William Ogle in previous paragraph.
I personally knew about it.And I have always refused to accept it.As of now, it is my personal wish not to reveal the identity of anonymous person at all.
For me, I always strive for historical truth in genealogical and historical research since 1965.
