THOMAS (1827-1907) Bridget Ryan (1854) St. Peter's Mendota MN
WILLIAM ( - ) Honorah O'Brien ( ) (No information available)

The information included above is uncertain at best. It is thought that Thomas is related to the William and Honorah here noted. This is only because of vague references in early records and there is at this time no hard evidence to support this. William is nonetheless included here in order to provide a lead for further investigation. Nothing is known about William and his wife at this time.

THOMAS HOGAN (1827-1907) (Parents Unknown)
BRIDGET RYAN (1833-1904) Dau. of John Ryan & Mary ???

Thomas is thought to have been born somewhere in Queens County Ireland. He came to the United States in 1848 and worked as a blacksmith in the East prior to his arrival in Minnesota. He was married in Cleveland Ohio in 1854, presumably on his way west. By 1855, he was located in St. Paul MN where he remained until the fall of 1856 when he moved to Dakota County and homesteaded a farm in section 14 of Lebanon Twp. He and his wife may have come to the area with Mary's family. Her parents appear to have also settled a farm in Lebanon Twp. Some time in 1854. By 1860 Thomas moved to another farm in section 27 of Lebanon Twp. were he raised his family. Thomas held several township positions over the years and became a prominent personality in the area.
