Newspaper article: Captain John Watson married Miss Cassandra Hoge, daughter of the late William Hoge of Columbia County, Georgia, on September 12, 1810. Benjamin Williams, Esquire, performed the ceremony.
James Parks married Pheby Hoge in Wilkes County, Georgia, on November 6, 1793. Jonathan Hoge acted as security. There is also a deed where Jacob sold land to Joseph Parks.
Jacob Hog married Ewena Cohron on April 18, 1818 (all spelling as transcribed). She was the daughter of Joseph Cohron and Richard Heeth/Heath, who married Nancy Cohron, another daughter, was part of a petition presented to the court relating to the estate of Joseph Cohron. Jacob Hoge was one of the appraisers of the estate of John Brooks (will dated February 3, 1780) and Stephen Hoge was one of the witnesses to John Brooks signature.
During the Revolutionary War, the older Jacob and his wife, Phebe, left the Ninety Six District (current day Laurens County) and went to East Florida where Jacob appointed William Hendricks/Hendrix to sell a portion of his land grants. After the War, he came back, but already had headrights land grants in Wilkes County, Georgia, before 1785. Jacob Hogg was granted a headrights tract of 112 acres in 1796 in Greene County, Georgia. Other deeds in Laurens County, South Carolina, help to clarify.
The Quaker records, as well as the year that Jacob got his land grant in South Carolina suggests, that he was at least forty-five years old in 1793 and hence it is possible that Pheby was either his widow or his daughter. No daughters were mentioned in the Quaker records of Hopewell or Bush River.
