I had guessed that the 1860 Jno Vogan was your John Vogan, brother to Jonathan Vogan. I would imagine that your great-grandmother, Julia Etta Vogan was named after Juliet Etta Emery Vogan, Jonathan's first wife since she died in 1853, the year your great-grandmother was born. My Rebecca was actually Sarah Rebecca Vogan (she was listed as Sahra R. Shaeffer in the 1900 census), so probably she was named after your great-great-grandmother, Sarah Rebecca Emery. You may be right about Rebecca being in John Vogan's 1860 household. Her age is a little off - it should be 11 instead of 16 (1900 Census lists her as born in Mar 1849 and the ages listed in 1870 & 1880 agree with that birthdate). I have not been able to find Jonathan Vogan's family in 1850. Do you have a complete list of the children of William Vogan and Mary Harlan? Do you know when Jonathan Vogan died? I don't have any information after the 1870 Census. Do you know of any proof of these dates and relationships? I was in Salt Lake recently and could find nothing in the way of wills or church records that could link Rebecca Vogan to her father, Jonathan Vogan or link Jonathan Vogan to his father, William Vogan. My Vogan chart goes back another three generations to a James Vogan who died in 1753, but I have no idea where this information came from or any way of documenting it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. You can contact me directly at my email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you prefer. Thanks in advance, Jane
