Hi Kyle,
I just received a package from my Aunt (her mother & my grandmother is Effie Mae Fogerson) Dorothy and I saw your connection to my family:
Ray Alexander FOGERSON {b:23 Jul 1905} is my grandma's only full sibling - her name is Effie Mae FOGERSON and your Leonard L. is her nephew. That said here is what I do know about our Fogerson's:

John Depew FOGERSON {b: 1820 in Ohio d: 19 Jan 1879 in Kinnmundy} married first to Mary Lurana Boots in Indiana and had 12 children. She died and he remarried to Elizabeth P. Duncan {b:31 Jul 1839 in Edgar Co., IL & d:19 Dec 1893 in Kinnmundy} they had 12 children and we descend from their youngest son:

Boyd Alexander FOGERSON {b:11 Mar 1872 in Marion}. Boyd Alexander m. Lourella Smith on 25 Apr 1903 in Paxton, IL and produced three children before he died on 29 May 1912 from blood poisoning resulting from wounds sustained in a steam engine explosion in Effingham.
Ray Alexander FOGERSON {b:23 Jul 1905- d: 3 Jul 1946}
Effie Mae FOGERSON {b: 23 Jul 1910 - d: 15 Nov 2007}
Ada Myrtle FOGERSON {b: 18 Sep 1912 - Mar 1914 of "gastro-enteritis"}

Ray Alexander married Thelma L. LNU on 22 Dec 1926 and produced:
Ray Alexander FOGERSON Jr. {b: 13 May 1927- 14 May 1927 buried in Bement}
Thomas Boyd FOGERSON {b: 10 Aug 1929 in Bement} who married Doris Eileen Clough on 16 Aug 1946
Phyllis Marie FOGERSON {b: 24 Mar 1931 in Bement} married Kenneth Tipsword in 1948
Leonard Lloyd FOGERSON {b:8 Dec 1932 in Bement, IL} who married Willus Maxine Brown {b: 24 Feb 1935 in Lodge} on 23 Nov 1955
Leonard's issue:
Terry Dwight {b:8 Dec 1956} in Decatur
Timothy Dwayne {b:5 Apr 1958} "
Peggy Lynn {b:31 Jul 1961} "
Michael Scott (b: 8 May 1963 in Monticello

Ray Alexander Fogerson's other children:
Robert Dale FOGERSON {b: 11 Nov 1935 in Bement} married Lois Eileen McWhorter (twice)
Kenneth Duane FOGERSON {b:6 Jul 1937 in Bement} who married Leona Joan Nevius on 1 Jan 1954
Donald Lee FOGERSON {b: 24 Mar 1939 in Bement} married Shirley Snoke abt 1957
Ronald Dean FOGERSON{b: 13 Jun 1941 in Bement} he married & divorced Margaret Wolf
Darrell Eugene FOGERSON {b: 13 Sep 1942}

That is quite a lot of info but Ray Alexander had 8 children and my grandma Effie Mae had 9 children not to mention John Depew's 24 children from two marriage (I had hear originally that John Depew had 8 from his first & 8 from his second marriage) but research will tell!
Probably more than you wanted to know but happy hunting!
your 3rd cousin (I think),
Leigh Anthony Paintin
