Eighth Generation


Family of Alexander BOIG (7) & Elizabeth COKBURNE


8. ? William BOGUE, M. Born ? 1631 in ? Berwickshire, Scotland.


NOTE: Believed to be our line because all trace of this William Boig ends in

Scotland and at about the time William Bogue appears in Virginia.


William Boig, believed our immigrant ancestor, was born to Alexander Boig of

Burnhouses and Elizabeth Cokburne probably at the Burnhouses estate in

Berwickshire, Scotland. 1650 - William Boig, our ancestor, and his brothers

are believed to have served in the Scots army during the latter phases of

the Civil War. He probably was captured at Worcester, shipped to Virginia as

an indentured servant, changed the spelling of his surname from "Boig" to

"Bogue" which was a common family practice during his generation. With a

natural dislike for the Anglican Church in Virginia he was probably

evangelized by Quaker missionaries who were soon ejected from the colony,

married the Quaker Jane Edwards, fathered three children, and died in

Virginia. His three Quaker children, Robert, William and Margaret migrated

to the Province of Carolina with their remarried mother, Jane Loadman.

Together they settled in a Quaker community near Hertford along the east

bank of the Perquimans River.

The Burnhouse property, one of five original Bogue estates, is

approximately 550 acres, the same size as it was in 1651. A stream runs

through the family estate next to where the houses are located. We visited

the Burnhouse property in May 1995 during a hail storm.


? William married ??Jeane or Jane EDWARDS ?, F, believed daughter of Timothy CLARE, M

& Mary BUNDY, F.

and calls for "Bar Garden." ...Rent Rolls, Perquimans County, prior to 1700

Winslow Hist. p449. He had 443 acres. In April 1698 he was appointed

constable "from ye Narrows of Perquimans to Suttons Creek and to Mr Lakars

Creek on ye West Side." Winslow p 12


On 5 Jun 1689 William married Ellener PERISHO, F, daughter of James PERISHO,

M & Hannah Phelps, F, in Jona' Phelps Old Plantation Perq. Co NC. Born on 18

Sep 1673 in may be Aug.


"James Perisho was from France born ca 1645 and died at Perquimans 29 March 1678. Hannah was born ca 1654 at Salem Massachusetts. and died in Perquimans ca 1687/89. She had a brother Jonathan Phelps. Her mother was Hannah Baskel who probably was born in England before 1630 and probably died in Perquimans County, NC after 1695. She married first Nicholas Phelps, Hannah and Jonathan's father. She married next his brother Henry Phelps and third James Hill. She may have married again to Joseph Smith."

to marry. They lived there until 1811, when they moved to Ohio. They

Samuel Bogue married Sophia Herrington/Harrington before Sept 1835, as both

their names appear on Madison County, Indiana land records. The first was

from Deed Record Book 5 p100 and involves 30 acres owned by his wife. Some

Thirteenth Generation


Family of Hannah KINNECK(H) (KINNEON) (27) & James GRIFFIN


43. Lydia GRIFFIN, F. Born on 27 Jun 1783 in Perquimans Co NC. Lydia died in

Henry Co IA ca 1846/1850; she was 62. Buried in Cedar Creek Friends



On 19 Mar 1806 when Lydia was 22, she married Enos MENDENHALL, M, son of

Thomas MENDENHALL, M & Phebe(y) RUDDUCK, F, in Springfield MM NC. Born on 14

Jun 1782 in Guilford Co NC. Enos died in Henry Co IA on 14 Feb 1860; he was

77. Buried in Cedar Creek Friends Cemetery.


Enos and Lydia removed from Springfield MM in North Carolina to Westfield MM

in Hamilton County, Indiana, by certificate dated August 10, 1836 and later

to Salem MM IA, in 1837. His will is recorded in Henry County Iowa and he is

buried in the Cedar Creek Friends Cemetery in Henry county IA.

One hundred and fifty-seven years ago, Enos Mendenhall was building his first

log cabin on the farm that is still in the family. He had entered 80 acres

SW 1/4 of section 36 ca 1838. The cabin stood near the present Maxwell home.

The log cabin burned down, in 1840, before it was entirely completed. The

log cabin was rebuilt immediately and was located where the wood house stood

in 1933. The log cabin had wooden hinges and a wooden latch on the door. To

lock the door one pulled the latch string inside. Enos said "the latch

string was always out."

Enos lived west of Denova for two years and while there cut logs for the

house and for the fence for the farm, which is the current Maxwell place.

Enos attended Salem MM. The home was rebuilt in 1901 and the south barn in

1902. Pamela was 19 when they came to Iowa. She and her sister Asenath worked

at a hotel in Ft. Madison during the winters to help pay for the home place,

where JoAnn Corell and her husband now live. Pamela married Charles Maxwell

in 1846, from whom we are descended. News article in Mt. Pleasant News


They had the following children:

54 i. Ahemar (Ahinaz) (Alimaas), M (1807-1807)

59 vi. Emily, F (1820-1822)

60 vii. Enos T., M (1822-1904)


Family of Samuel BOGUE (28) & Elizabeth MORGAN


44. Benjamin BOGUE, M. Born on 26 Nov 1801 in Pasquotonk Co. NC. Benjamin

died in Emporia KS on 17 Oct 1883; he was 81.


For some reason Benjamin and his family moved around a lot. He married

Millie Hiatt in Wayne County IN in 1828. They lived in Indiana until ca

1834, then they were in Michigan from ca 1834 until 1841, possibly Cass Co

near Cassopolis (where some of his great aunts and uncles lived.) From 1841

until 1846 they lived in the Mt. Pleasant and Salem IA vicinity in Henry

County Iowa. They then returned to Indiana and we find them at both Milford

MM and Hopewell MM while there. In August 1851 they returned to Iowa. They

moved to Kansas in 1874.

Update: 2008

Clipped from e-mail I sent to Joel Garretson Novemeber 26, 2007
“I went to the courthouse to check into the Bogue's Jackson twp land and found this:
17 2nd month 1841 Benjamin Bogue purchased from David Wilson and Esther his wife
commencing at the NW cor of NE 1/4 sec 27 Twp 70 range 6, thence S 74 rods, thence E 16 rods, thence N 74 rods thence west to the place of its beginning being 7 acres and 65 rods (on which Bogue is to build a mill.)
27 day of 10th month 1846 Benjamin Bogue and Milly sold to Joseph D. Hoag and Joel Garretson.
It describes the above parcel but says it includes the saw mill.


28th day of May 1842 Benjamin Bogue purchased from Elijah Gipson
Laying north of the creek in the SW 1/4 of NW 1/4 of section Twenty-seven, twp 70 range 6 containing 20 acres.
Benjamin Bogue and Milly 8th day Feb 1851 now of Wayne County Indiana sell the 20 acres of land to Pharaba Haworth

This is the first I knew of this mill. Do you know anything about it? Did your ancestor run it for awhile or did Hoag?

My great great grandparents came in ca 1840 to Henry County, Iowa and went back to Indiana in 1846/47. My great grandfather Joseph was born back in Indiana and then they returned to Iowa and Benj. and fam. on to Kansas in 1875, Joseph Bogue who was great grandfather stayed here until his father died and then went to farm his Kansas land. From these records I am sure they attended East Grove Preparative Meeting ca 1841-1846, so am glad your son took me back there.”


Reply from Joel Garretson:
“Yes, I was aware of the mill but do not know too much about it. My ancestor who I am named after, Joel Garretson was said to have operated it. Pat Ross from Mt. Pleasant knew about it and passed some information down to his son in law Bill Garretson. They were milling RR ties for the Keokuk, Mt. P. & Muscatine RR. My dad said that the Bogue Creek valley in throughout that area was known as sawmill bottoms. The location you cite for the mill is on Bogue Creek just south of Salem/Lowell Road on property owned by Russ Cox. That parcel was also to have been a RR siding and depot for the RR and was to be named Lavonia.

The Benjamin Bogue 20 acres is over the hill from us on property owned by Larry Francy. It was owned for many years by Homer Williams. It borders the north side of Joel C. Garretson's original 80 acres.

Thanks for passing that on. Very interesting!”


On *2 Oct 1828 when Benjamin was 26, he married Millicent (Millie) HIATT, F,

daughter of Silas HIATT, M & Anna CLARY, F, in Wayne Co IN. Born on 30 Aug

1809 in North Carolina. Millicent (Millie) died in Emporia KS on 23 Feb 1896; she

was 86. *Hiatt book, Bogue book 29 May 1824. Luticia Sparques says 1825.


She is believed to have been a mother at age 14 years and 9 months. Her

daughter Melinda is believed to have been born 5-29-1824. Quaker records of

Dickinson died in Holly, Colo on 8 May 1918; he was 68. Buried in Holly

Cemetery. Occupation: Farmer - lived in IN, IA, KS and CO. Religion: Quaker



Joseph Dickenson was a farmer and a Republican and he came to Iowa when he

was a year old in a Prairie Schooner. He purchased and moved to his parents

40 acres near Emporia KS in 1896, following his mother's death. The farm was

too small to support his large family, therefore they rented other land and

the family lived in both Lyon and Chase counties KS. They moved to a diary

farm near Holly CO in the spring of 1907. They moved by rail on an immigrant

car, leaving Bazaar KS one evening and arriving in Holly the next evening at

midnight. In 1910 Joseph D. homesteaded 320 acres 22 miles south of Holly,

on the prairie. Walter Bogue and Charlie Thompson (Neva's husband) each had

320 acres, almost adjoining. Joseph injured his hand on the farm in CO April

30, 1918 and was taken to the hospital in Lamar on May 2, and died there in

May 8, 1918 of blood poisoning. His wife Ida died of cancer 05 Nov 1920. His

first wife Hannah Roberts died after being hurt in the stomach while

carrying their fourth child. The baby died and rotted inside of her killing


The Joseph D. Bogue children used to have a round robin letter, that usually

made a trip around the children, once a year. I know that the four living

children by Ida and Minnie and Walter were in it. I am not sure if they had

it when Royal was still living. I think Fritz may have been in it, but don't

remember. I used to read some of the letters and when grandmother died, Lois

(mom) took over writing in it. After my mother's death all contact was lost

with his family, until 1992.
