    Notes:

    1900 Federal Census

    My wife didn't know much about Zona's family, but remembered that a sister, Flossie, visited from time to time. I tried to locate Zona in the 1900 census in Putnam and White Counites, but she just wasn't there. So I did a search for Flossie Whittaker and up popped a hit in Todd County KY. Below is the census record. It shows Flossie as the niece of the head of household, William Whittaker, along with Lonnie who also is listed as a niece. Looking at the hand written page it's obvious that the name is Zonnie as "L"s elsewhere in the document are made differently.

    Ancestry.com provides digital copies of Federal census records and also tabulates information on the person on the record page found when searching for a person. Names are usually translated from the hand written copy to the typed tabulations fairly well. Whoever does the translation is good at reading old handwriting, but in some cases the handwriting isn't very clear and a close observation reveals a different spelling.

    In addition to Zonnie and Flossie, two nephews are listed, Lee and Willis. Bettie Whittaker indicates she is not the mother of any children and Ceen Whittaker indicates she is the mother of six children and they are all living. There are six children in the house and I am guessing they are all children of Ceen Whittaker as their ages show they are stair steps.

    Apparently they were all living with Willliam Whittaker, the children''s uncle, in Kentucky in 1900.

    Since Lee and Willis are listed as sons of William, it is possible that he is the father of these two of Ceen Whittaker.

    WILLS and DEEDS

    ( Most of this information was from Sue Montgomery COOK , and research performed by myself, and from other sources )

    1 ) Captain Abraham DENTON-m-Mary O'DELL, left a DEED dated August 12, 1774 which was signed by Mary Denton LITTLE . Dorothy CLOCK (CLARK) Elizabeth SMITH and Mary PARESON (PEARSON) made their marks.

    Abraham's will was written August 12, 1774 and probated September 27, 1774 in Shenandoah Co, VA . Died in 1779 in Shenandoah, VA . Will book A, page 200, Woodstock, Shenandoah Co, VA, pgs. 228-229 . Administration and inventory of estate and apportionment . Heirs : Elizabeth SMITH, Hannah SMITH and Daridea CLOCK ( CLARK ). ( These were probably Mary's sisters who took care of her in her old age as her children had already moved on by the time her husband died ) .

    2 ) From the copies of the deed book in " Kinfolks of Granville Co, NC, 1765-1826 " by Zae Hargett GWYNN : Benjamin DENTON and wife, Celia DENTON, and their children, John DENTON, Rueben DENTON, and Polly BECKHAM, wife of John BECKHAM, sold land willed to said Celia DENTON for her lifetime by Thomas WIGGINS and then to go to her children, Frederick DENTON, Samuel DENTON, and Elizabeth DENTON were also children of Benjamin and Celia DENTON. Frederick WIGGINS also signed this deed .

    From the 1803-1806 Court minutes of Granville Co, NC : "DEED from Benjamin, Celia, John, Rueben DENTON, John BECKHAM, Frederick WIGGINS and Polly BECKHAM to Stephen SNEED, 197 acres and Celia DENTON relinquished her dower right in said land ".

    Benjamin DENTON is listed in the tax records for Granville Co, NC, in 1784 and 1786, no Township listed.

    3 ) Abraham DENTON, Sr. had purchased land from Richard VOLENTINE of Hempstead, L I., on March 3, 1700. The Orange Co, NY records show, " Abraham DENTON, Senr., of Precinct of Haverstraw to son Abraham DENTON, land . Delivered in presence of Jonas DENTON and John DENTON, January 10, 1729-30 .

    4 ) From JAMES DENTON'S WILL : " In the name of God, Amen, I James DENTON, of Herricks, in the town of Hempstead, in Queens County, being very ill of body. I leave to my wife, Jane, all of my movable estate and household goods, ` and cattle and living creatures ', and use of my dwelling house, and one half of my barn and one half of all lands and meadows during her widowhood and after her death the whole is to go to my son James DENTON. If he dies before he is of the age of twenty-one, then all my brothers, Abraham and Jonas DENTON. I make my wife and my son James and my brother-in-law, William, executors".

    Dated the 7th day of the 3rd month, 1713. Witnesses : Ezekiel SMITH, Joseph WOOD. proved at the Jamaica before Issac HICKS, Judge, February 3, 1723.

    1700-1774

    Capt. Abraham II DENTON was born in 1700 in Hemstead, NY. Baptized on 12 Aug 1774. Died in 1774 in Shenandoah CO, VA. His will was presented August 12, 1774. He died and is buried at Tom's Brook Plantation in Shenandoah CO, VA (photo of present Tom's Brook below).

    .

    Abraham was a Captain in the French and Indian War in the Provincial Army of 1766.

    Abraham, according to sources in Orange CO, NY, had some problems with local law and soon after left the county for a new home in the Shenandoah County of Virginia. This was in 1729 or 1730. Thus started the move westward, for his sons each moved in different directions into the frontier.

    From The Tennessee Valley Historical Review: "Abraham Denton, Junior, became involved with the law in New York in about 1729-30. He, along with some close relatives, left that state and headed for Virginia, crossing the eastern part of Pennsylvania and the northwestern part of Maryland. In the Valley of Virginia, then Orange County (later Augusta County) and the upper Virginia Valley, (Frederick, later Dunmore, and still later Shenandoah County) we find Abraham and his family. Also about the same time, Jonas Denton and others had reached the Virginia country. Samuel, Robert, James and John Denton begin to appear in the same general locality. The deeds in Frederick County clearly prove that the Dentons were there as early as 1755 and became prominent citizens."

    Abraham left a deed dated August 12, 1774 which was signed by Mary Denton Little. Dorothy Clock (Clark) Elizabeth Smith and Mary Pareson (Pearson) made their marks.

    He married Mary O'DELL in 1725 in Orange CO, NY. Mary O'DELL was born in 1702 in Woodstock, VA.Abraham's will was written August 12, 1774 and probated September 27, 1774 in Shenandoah CO, VA. Died in 1779 in Shenandoah, VA. Will book A, page 200, Woodstock Shenandoah CO, VA pgs. 228-229. Administration and inventory of estate and apportionment. Heirs: Elizabeth Smith, Hannah Smith and Daridea Clock (Clark). These were probably Mary's sisters who took care of her in her old age as her children had already moved on by the time her husband died.

    They had the following children:

    Joseph DENTON
    Isaac DENTON Sr.
    Samuel DENTON
    James DENTON
    Martha "Mary" DENTON
    Abraham DENTON III

    The expert on Gideon Hogg is Lavelle Cox Hogg of Portales, New Mexico......this is her line and she has years of research behind her.

    Helen, have you researched your JOHNSON line?

    The data I have on Gideon Hogg is as follows:
    *I have more data, but I will need to search for it's binder.


    *Gideon Hogg was in Goochland Co., VA as early as 1737. In 1748, he was a witness to the Will of Robert Burton in Goochland Co., VA.

    Gideon Hogg [B-@1720 *no location;D-17 Jul 1793 Caswell Co., NC -- Will proved 1793 Caswell Co., NC *Book C page 26] married Judith ------ *the maiden name of Pittman has not been proven.

    From 1737 to 1770 Gideon Hogg had land entries in VA; on 6 Dec 1761, he had 135 acres in Orange Co., NC.....in 1793, he had 400 acres on the branches of Rutledge Creek beginning where his mill path and Jonathan Yates path forks.

    Children of Gideon Hogg and Judith:

    1- John Hogg [B@1745 *presume VA]

    David --

    I had a moment, so I started into my "digging" into the Hogg data.......

    In 2011 -- a DNA test matched Gideon with the JOHN HOGG of New Kent, Virginia (more on that later)

    One source for Gideon comes from the Heritage of Caswell Co, North Carolina (1985) by Janine D. Whitlow, Ed. Hunter Publishing Company, Winston Salem, NC

    There was a DNA project for the Hogg's -- http:/hdhdata.org/hoggdna/families.html -- I don't know if that site is still there

    Do you have the Will of Gideon Hogg? If not I do -- it is in Book C page 26 Caswell County, NC -- it was proved in 1793 in open Court by the Oath of Henry Baldwin........his son Andrew (although not mentioned in the Will) is listed as my son Andrew to be Executor (along with Gideon's wife Judith)

    It was a handwritten Will -- on the 7th Nov 1790 in the presence of Richard Cloe; Nicholas Cloe; and Henry Baldwin

    It also appears, Gideon was married prior to his marriage to Judith --

    More later --

    David --

    Don't get too excited -- I am going to have to "dig" to find my Hogg material -- it's been over 20 years since I have worked on the lines --

    I started work on them in the 1960's -- no computer's -- just library work....I'm sure this was before you were a tinkle in your parents eyes (ha)

    I do recognize the names -- I think we have the Denton lines in common.... If I recall (and it's doubtful), I "think" the HOGG lines originated in Virginia -- then spread out to the South Carolina and Georgia areas.

    I like what you have done for your presentation --

    The reason I was documenting the Hogg lines was due to my Grandfather's sister (Aneta Boss) who married a Hogg -- it took me 15 years to find the William Hogg who was her son -- but find him I did -- we had constant contact until he passed -- I am still in contact with his daughters.

    I know -- too much information -- sorry about that.

    I don't know if the Hogg Society is still in existence -- but you might google it to check -- the original starters of the Society have passed -- but I would bet one of the daughter's has continued it....and have probably put in on line (just a thought)......it originated out of Texas back in the 60's.

    Keep in touch -- I will try to get to "that stuff" once the New Year has passed and I can "dig".......

    Hang in there -

    and ...

    Gideon may have had a marriage prior to his marriage to Judith --

    The 1786 State Census for North Carolina shows him as being OVER 60 -- which would put his birth as early as 1720 -- *Some Hogg researchers have his birth 1712-1715

    Gideon Hogg was in Goochland, VA as early as 1737. In 1748, he was a witness to the Will of ROBERT BURTON (1687-30 Mar 1748) in Goochland. *Robert Burton married Priscella Farrars (daughter of William Farrars and Priscella Baugh)

    In the 1786 Orange Co, NC Census which listed Gideon Hogg, also listed PRISCELLA BURTON; NOEL BURTON -- *In 1748 -- Gideon Hogg had a number of Burton's and Farrars around him on the Tax list.

    From 1737 to 1770 -- Gideon had land entries in VIRGINIA -- in 1793 -- he had 400 acres on the branches of Rutledge Creek beginning where his Mill path and JOHN YATES path forks...

    More research has been done since this list was made back in 2011 -- but this is the list I found so I am passing it on:

    Children of Gideon Hogg and Judith: *bare data

    1- John Hogg (B-@1745 VA)
    2- William Hogg (B-@1747 VA) -- married 1768 Naomi Gibson -- *there is data he M2- Nancy Gray
    3- Elizabeth Hogg (no data) -- married --- Thomas
    4- Agnes Hogg (no data)
    5- Ann Hogg (B-@1751 VA) -- married Joseph Denton
    6-Mourning Hogg (B-@1752 VA) -- married Abraham Denton
    7- Gideon Hogg (B-@1755 VA) -- married Mary ----
    8- Judith Hogg (*also listed as India Judith) (B-1759 NC;D-1845 KY) -- married John Gibson
    9- Rebecca Hogg (B-1760 NC) -- married William Shelton, JR *1803 moved to KY
    10- Andrew Hogg (B-1762 NC;D-19 Jul 1838 KY) -- married Alley Murray *Executor on Gideon's Will
    11- Mary Hogg (B-1765 NC; D- after 1850 ARK) -- married William Yates, JR

    *Note: this is old material -- many of the @'s have now been filled in and proved --

    The DAR accepted Gideon Hogg SR for Patriotic Service...he is shown in the Revolutionary Claims -- Vol III page 761
    Andrew Hogg was also accepted by the DAR

    You might contact your local DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) to see what they have on file. There is normally a Chapter close by that can be of help.

    More in next e-mail -- hope this was helpful -- you probably already had this -- but just in case I sent it....

I have advice from several sources that Pitman was probably her name but have no "proof" so must add the question...Recently received a letter from another descendant of Gideon Hogg who was quite thrilled to see the Pitman name as her husband, a descendant of Gideon and Judith carries a middle name of Pitman and no one knew where it had come from. Just another clue but it all helps."

    3 Oct. 1768: John Ward of Halifax Co. to Robert Ward of same, ¹45 Virginia, 133a. part of 20 Apr. 1745 David Ward patent jng. Beaverdam [Swamp], Middleton, Bryants Branch. John Ward, Elizabeth Ward. Wit: David (x) Ward, Nathan Pitman, Isom Pitman.

    "In the Bladen C., N.C. records of deeds (pre-Robeson Co.), the first Pitman to take up land appears to have been Thomas Pitman in 1768. He is listed as being from Halifax Co., N.C. Shortly thereafter, Isham Pitman also bought land and is listed as being from Halifax C. It seems that the lands that these men relinquished in Halifax C. upon moving to Bladen Co. were the lands originally held by Thomas Pitman (III) before his death and before Halifax Co. was created from Edgecombe Co. Isham was a witness to Thomas' purchase Lott was a witness to Isham's purchase. We know that Thomas and Lott were sons of Thomas from his will and it seems that several others were taking up land at or about the same time, in the same vicinity (present south Robeson Co., near Fairmont, N.C.). On Oct. 23, 1782, Nathan, Isham, & Newitt all bought practically adjoining properties which, on the surface, would indicate some relationship. On Nov. 11 & 12, 1779, Lott, Joel, Newitt, and Hardy all took up practically adjoining lands on Hogg Swamp which, again, would indicate some type of relationship. From local records, we know that Isham Pitman was born in 1728 and died in 1825 and I am assuming that the others were in the same neighborhood of age considering when they died ... Nathan, 1804, Newitt, 1787, Lott, 1790. From this scantiest of information, the conclusion has been drawn that these persons were brothers and all descended from the Edgecombe Co. family. If you are able to find absolute lineage, I, along with many others, will be most happy." James Guthrie, Lumberton, N.C., 1984

    LWT:

    In the name of God Amen, I Nathan Pitman of the state of North Carolina and the county of Robeson being weak of body but of perfect sound mind and memory do make and ordain this my last will and testament in the manner and form following, viz:
