I had no information on this family before, but did a little digging and found two web sites that have information on them:
you might already be aware of them.
I found no real evidence to confirm it, but see no reason to disagree with the conclusion that George W. Hogg was the father of the Wilton George Hogge born in 1902, who was the father of the Wilton George Hogge born in 1924. Most likely he was from Gloucester Co. where there are many George Hoggs and Washington Hoggs. The one that seems to be him is George W. Hogg, born in 1867, the son of John R. and Sarah Hogg, seen in the 1860 and 1870 census. John R. Hogg was born in 1836 and is listed in the 1850 census as the son of William and Patsy Hogg. William and Patsy were both born in 1806. All of these census records I mention are in Gloucester Co. Virginia.
I have no information on the parents of William Hogge, born in 1806 and married Patsy; perhaps one of the Gloucester County experts can help out here. However, it is almost certain that he is a descendant of John Hogg, who came to New Kent Co. in 1657, as also I am. I think it would be revealing to have a direct male-line Hogge from your family provide a DNA sample for the Hogg DNA project. Perhaps you could recruit a brother, uncle, cousin, etc. Doing this would first prove conclusively that you are a descendant of John Hogg of New Kent Co. and help us sort out the various branches of the family as more data becomes available and we can identify the subtle differences between them. If you email me directly, we can talk more about the details. see my DNA web page at http://hdhdata.org/dna/hoggdna.html
