Identifying Elizabeth Boger, John Boger's mother, may be difficult. Even properly "connecting" Moses Boger, John's father,is tricky. I show him as the son of Jacob Boger and Barbara Lefler, but he has been listed in other Boger family histories as the son of Daniel Boger and Catherine Lippard. However, Moses is not listed in the estate of Daniel in 1826. Moses was listed in the 1850 Cabarrus Co. NC census living next to Peter and George Boger. Also listed in Moses' household was a Catherine Boger, age 71. Catherine may have been Catherine Lippard, the widow of Daniel Boger, however, it is not clear what her relationship to Moses was.
John Boger's wife, Leah Holshouser, was the daughter of Frederick Holshouser and Phillipina Miller. The Miller line traces back to Wendel Miller of Rowan Co. so I suspect that Leah may have been born in Rowan.
