George Cogdell (son of John Cogdell and Unknown) was born 1699 in Switzerland, and died Apr 1761 in Dobbs Co. North Carolina.He married Margaret Bell, daughter of George Bell and Elizabeth. Notes for George Cogdell: LUKE PIPKIN (1734-aft1796) LUKE PIPKIN br abt 1734 in Nanesmond Co. Virginia. Died aft 1796. S/o John Jr. & Sarah Goodman. There seems to be some confusion concerning HANNAH ( br 22 Oct 1730-???) d/o George & Margaret Cogdell. The w/o LUKE. Most of the PIPKIN Family researchers knew that LUKEs wife was named HANNAH. What they didnt know was that her Maiden Name is CODGELL. The confusion started with SUSANNAH COGDELL (1761-aft1795) d/o Richard & Lydia Duncan. W/o Elisha Pipkin (1749-1792). In the "WILL" of George Cogdell it clearly states that HANNAH (1730-???) married a PIPKIN. LUKE PIPKIN is mentioned several times in the "WILL" of GEORGE COGDELL & in other Cogdell/Pipkin family Documents. The fact that LUKEs wife was named HANNAH & the fact that LUKE was closely associated to the COGDELL family leads me to conclude that LUKEs wife is HANNAH COGDELL. The dates & places also FIT. CLINT PIPKIN ********************************************* GEORGE COGDELL George Cogdell, son of John Cogdell the immigrant, (born in Switzerland?) George lived in NC from 1710 until his death in 1761. He married Margaret Bell in Carteret Co ca 1722. Margaret Bell was the daughter of George Bell who had been Charles and George Cogdell's guardian and to whom they were bound servants. In August 1714 the Bath Co, NC Orphans Court was held at the house of Capt Jacob Miller, Charles Cogdals and George, orphans bound to George Bell were again in court. Charles complained that his brother George who was bound with him was sick and was not taken care of and was slighted and neglected in his sickness and that George Bell had not clothed them sufficiently. Charles Cogdell asked the court to set them free and give them their liberty. The court demanded that George Bell pay Charles and George Cogdell 2 cows and 2 calves when they became 21 years old. Daniel McFarland and Capt Wm Hancock Jr became security for the payment. In August 1714 the court ordered that the orphans be freed to go for themselves. They had been with George Bell approximately 2-1/2 years. Their ages at the time is not known but apparently they were not yet 21. February 3, 1722 George Cogdell sold 130 acres of land to Richard Johnson for 16 lbs. February 1, 1722 he sold for 100 lbs a tract of land or plantation containing 120 acres on the north side or Newport River to Robert Osbourn. Many other records of land transactions are on record. George was Justice of the Peace for Currituck Co in 1733. He served in the militia during the Spanish Alarm in 1747. George was not nearly as active in civic matters and politics as his brother Charles. George Cogdell died in 1761 in what is now Wayne Co, NC.
