William Hogan came from Virginia to Clay County, Willis Bottom, Tennessee, about the end of the Revolutionary War. This is on the Obey River, now under Dale Hollow Lake. He is said to have married a full blood Indian in Virginia. They had two boys--William & Daniel. He left her and brought the boys to Willis Bottom, Clay County Tennessee. He married Jennie Rodgers and reared a large family. Young Hogan (son of William and Jennie) killed a man named Smith before leaving Tennessee. All the rest of the children (with the exception of William) also left, going North and West. Nothing more is known of them!!Only William Hogan (born 1777 ,of the children remained in the Willis Bottom area. He married Mary Spear and they raised a large family, many of whom lived and died in Tennessee and Kentucky.) Danial Hogan was found dead beneath a bluff. He never married.
