I have been doing Ogan family genealogy since 1975. I was fortunate that both my grandparents were able to contribute many decades of information to my effort in the form of either charts in scroll form, family group sheets, and printed (unpublished) genealogies. I have taken it from there, contacting family genealogists, serving as an administrator for a listserve, publishing genealogies through RootsWeb, which have unfortunately been misinterpretted and usurped without acknowledgement for my contributions. I try to be thorough in my research, seeking original sources, though I have made mistakes, which I try to correct.

Hello Rodney, The information I have on James Lilly is from info I received from the source below 22 yeas ago, along with names of some children. A grandson, Hugh B Lilly, was still living in McGaheysville, Rockingham Co, VA in 1920, and his son James Hugh was likely born there in 1918. By DNA I am related to a grand daughter, JL. Her parents are dau "private" Lilly and son Ronald Ottie Monger, who died in 2020. I am in contact with local Shenandoah Valley historian, Billie Jo Monger, so at least this line of the family may still be in the Lilly family area.

Hi Chet,

Thanks for your contributions to our tree.

Could you please take a few moments to review the Sources Help pages as well as the Pre-1700 Quiz for the explanations about what sort of sources WikiTree is looking for with our pre-1700 profiles.

Also - please be careful to check for duplicates before creating your profiles.

Chet, Hello. I added the category of Rocheport, Missouri, to both James and Betsy Ogan. I had not edited the marriage. Once I saw your post, I did go in and change the marriage location spelling to Boone. I don't know who entered it as Boon, it was that way before I added the Rocheport category.

If you need to edit the marriage information, you open up a person's profile to edit. On the right hand side it lists 'spouse' and then just under that is 'edit marriage'. Click on that to open a new screen with just the marriage information, which can then be edited. If you have any questions, just ask. I am from a small town in Missouri, and I like to add the category of the town name to profiles, which is what I did here. Hope you have a great day!

Thanks for reaching out to me, Chet. Debra K. Ogan (maiden name) is my mother. I've barely begun building out my mother's side of the family but will be getting started soon. I will be looking forward to collaborating!

Those offices,etc for Richard Taylor came from Yarmouth chronicles. I'll look for those when I get time. We don't have good library resources here, I may have to do an interlibrary loan.

Hi Chet, saw you made some changes to Taylor-287. You inadvertantly deleted the entire narrative. I restored the narrative and also added the paragraph you'd added about his various elected offices. Could you please provide a source for that information? Thanks.

Hi Chet,

Please check for duplicates before creating new profiles. There are several duplicates in the Marchant/Taylor line.
