Marissa -- Alfred Valentine Zogg, the famous educator and principal in Liverpool, NY, after whom the school was named, was the son of Jacob Zogg (1861-1934), not Valentine Zogg.
Valentine (Vol) Zogg (1872-1948) was Jacob's younger brother. Alfred Valentine Zogg, who always used A.V. Zogg as his name, was a Syracuse University graduate, married a woman with the last name of Hitchcock, and is buried in their family plot in a cemetery in Cortland, NY (no mention of A.V. Zogg on the gravestone). His son had an auction business in Cortland still run by descendants. A.V.'s mother was Augusta Enderle, who had two other children -- Edward (Ned) and Lucy. Jacob (Jake) Zogg, A.V.'s father was a farmer in Liverpool. I am Tom Zogg -- great, grandson of John Zogg, brother of Jake and Vol. The Central New York Zogg family began with Ulrich Zogg (1828-1907) and his wife Anna Marie (Mary) Hartmann (1828-1912), who married in 1853 and lived in Liverpool village, later on a farm in town of Clay, outside Liverpool.
