I found this on Ancestry...I don't know the source:

The Bogart family has been traced back to Theunis Gijsbertszn in Den Boogaertman (b. 1562, d. 1647), from Schoonrewoerd, Vianen, Holland. There is information about three generations of this family in Holland, and several generations in the U.S., all of which reads a bit like the Biblical "begats." A daughter of Theunis Gijsbertszn in Den Boogaertman -- Neeltjien Laurens -- had at least three children, one of whom was Cornelius Theunis Boogaertman (b. 1609, d. bef 1646). He and his wife Beeltje Cornelise (b. 1613, d. unknown) had at least four children, one of whom was Cornelius Corneliszn Bogaert (b. 1637, d. July 28, 1665).
During the mid-1600s, Cornelius Corneliszn, his wife Dirkje Pieterse Coeymans Bogaert, their children, and his brother Gysbert, came to what is now the state of New York, going first to Renselaerwyck, then to Beverwyck (now Albany). There, they bought land. Another brother, Jan Laurens Bogaertman, also came to the New York area, settling in Harlem. Cornelius and Dirkje had five children; among them was Hendrick C., born in 1656 in Heykoop, Holland before they emigrated. Hendrick C. Bogaert married his first wife Janetje Martinese Esselstyne in 1679 in the Dutch Church in Kingston, New York; they had several children, among them was Cornelius Bogaert. (After Janetje died, Hendrick remarried, fathering more children.)

Cornelius Bogaert, born in Marbletown, Ulsyer County, New York, married Cornelia Delameter in 1704 in Kingston, New York. They had eleven children. Among them was Isaac (b. 1718, d. unknown), who lived his entire life in New Jersey. Isaac married twice; both wives had the same surname (van Nest), so they might have been sisters. With his first wife Neeltjien (b. 1721, d. unknown) he had two children. The second child was Hendrick (b. April 27, 1746 in Lebanon, Hunterdon, New Jersey, d. 1826 in Washington County, Tennessee). Hendrick Bogart (about 5th generation Dutch-American) married Elizabeth Range (b. 1742, in Somerset, New Jersey, d. abt 1826, in Washington County, Tennessee). At some point prior to 1800, they moved to Washington County by way of Virginia. (During the 1770s, a stream of mostly white (English, then Scot-Irish) people began arriving in the Tennessee area, often going into Cherokee territory illegally, as Yates points out). Hendrick and Elizabeth Bogart had 12 children; the many Bogarts in Washington County today can trace their ancestry to this family.

One of their children was Abraham Bogart (b. April 9, 1777 in Berkeley, Virginia, d. 1853 in Tennessee). In 1799, Abraham married Elizabeth Duncan (b. 1777, d. 1812) in Washington County, Tennessee. The migration pattern of the Duncans is very much like that of the Bogarts and the Breazeales (below). Elizabeth Duncan was a daughter of Charles Duncan (b. 1748, d. 1818) and  Lurannah Malkey (b. 1752, d. 1828). Both of them had been born in Surrey County, North Carolina, and came to Knob Creek, Washington County, Tennessee in the late 1700s, pushing against the Cherokee, as noted in the Harris family story. Charles Duncan was a son of Marshall Duncan (b. 1705, d. 1777) and Mary Ann Duron Duncan (b. 1705, d. 1777), both of whom had been born in Prince William County, Virginia, where they were married. Marshall Duncan was a son of William Duncan, who immigrated from Scotland in 1719, and Ruth Raleigh Rawley Duncan.
Abraham and Elizabeth Duncan Bogart moved to Roane County, Tennessee by 1812 (which is where Elizabeth Duncan Bogart died that year). Roane County, which had been created in 1801, is situated at the juncture of the Tennessee, Clinch, and Emory Rivers; on the map to the left, you can see where the Clinch and Tennessee join. Because of the rivers, this location has been very important to both the Cherokee who were there originally, and the whites who arrived. Whites began arriving in the 1780s, and in 1788, built a road through what later became Roane County. The Cherokee resisted white incursion; in response, whites built a fort at the rivers' juncture in 1792. Shortly after that, they petitioned to form Roane County, drawing from land in Knox County, and from Cherokee land by way of the Treaty of 1794. More Cherokee land was added through the Third Tellico Treaty of 1805 (in which the Cherokee ceded quite a bit of land, including land that had separated Nashville from east Tennessee), and the Hiwassee Purchase made through the Calhoun Treaty of 1819.

After Elizabeth died, Abraham married Jane Looney Preston in 1812. The Bogarts appear on the 1829 membership list of the Cave Creek Baptist Church of Roane County. Although most farmers of eastern Tennessee did not own slaves, the Bogarts, who were farmers, were part of the white slave-owning class. In 1830, they owned two slaves; in 1850 they owned three slaves (a woman and two babies). They were also neighbors to some of the Breazeales.Abraham and Elizabeth Duncan Bogart had at least following children:

  • Solomon (b. 1800, d. 1878), married Ann Moore
  • Henry Madison (b. 1801, d. 1889), married Mary Anne Woody, then Lucinda Barnett
  • William (b. 1803, d. 1863), married Mary Preston
  • Nancy (b. 1805, d. 1888), married Jesse Preston
  • Charles H. (b. 1809, d. 1898), my ancestor, married Caroline Breazeale
  • Betsy (b. abt. 1811, d. unknown), married Brice Woody

Abraham and Jane Looney Preston Bogard had the following children:

  • Margaret (b. 1813, d. unknown), married Thomas Kitchen
  • Elizabeth (b. 1813, d. unknown)
  • Sarah (b. 1814, d. unknown)

Is Franklin, Adams Co, Ohio, in any way related to Franklin County, Ohio? (For example, was Adams County carved out of Franklin County?)

An Ezekiel Bogart/Bogard was in Franklin County, Ohio, in the first decade of the 1800s. See https://books.google.com/books?id=gxIzAQAAIAAJ&pg=PA190 and http://pages.swcp.com/~dhickman/journals/V6I3/bogardpetty.html and https://books.google.com/books?id=NWrinpUPQ5AC&pg=PA160
