Thanks Ron, a nice overview of the Ogles. It "was" Martha, not Rebecca, who married William Ogle. I must have been having a senior moment. Martha was probably the oldest daughter of Peter Huskey Sr. Not much is known about them. Peter Sr. had another daughter Rachel who married John Rixey in Wake and a son Peter Jr all by first marriage. Peter Huskey's second marriage yeilded Isaac, my ancestor, born later in the 1770s. I believe the Huskeys were in Rowan and Wake NC till about 1780, then moved to Edgefield SC with most if not all the above group. Before 1760, I believe, but can't prove that Peter Huskey Sr was in Va and was most likely directly related to a Huskey family in Surry/Sussex/Brunswick and Mecklenburg Counties that we trace back to at least the 1730s. According to the information we have, William (Billy) Ogle did die in Edgefield SC. Tradition has it that he and Martha had bought land near what is now Gatlinburg TN. William had gone back to finish crops and sell their land in SC. Martha and children with her brother Peter Huskey Jr supposedly went ahead to TN and built the cabin. (this cabin now on display in downtown Gatlinburg) William is said to have contacted some kind of swamp fever and died in SC. Not known where he is buried. Martha Huskey Ogle, however and most of her and William's family is buried in White Oak Flats Cemetery in Gatlinburg. I always wondered if William and Martha met in Rowan, or if they met in Carroll Co and both families moved together. Family tradition says Martha's mother was killed by Indians and Peter Huskey's second wife was half Cherokee. Possibly all speculation. Oh, disregard anything you read on Huskeys from the SmokyKin website prior to near 1800. Someone fabricated the long lineage of ancestors there. Thanks much for your comments. Wayne Huskey
