About Elizabeth Jennings

Elizabeth Ogle was born on 5 Mar 1761 in New Castle Co., Delaware. She died in 1829. She married William JENNINGS about 1773 in Grayson Co., Virginia. Children were Dianna, Elias, Thomas, Jonathan, Elizabeth, Susannah, James, William, Robert "Robin", Amos, and Edmond.


Do you have any dates for the other Elizabeth OGLE JENNINGS, the one who married William JENNINGS 1750-1843, and who was the mother of the Jonathan JENNINGS who married Nancy HENSON? Also, how were they related? (I have that Elizabeth's father as Thomas OGLE, but I don't know how Thomas OGLE and James OGLE were related.).

Elizabeth Ogle, born 05 MAR 1761 in New Castle Co, DE, was a daughter of Thomas Ogle (25 JUL 1721-1803) and Elizabeth Robeson (b. 1721). James Ogle (10 NOV 1770 - abt 1855), who married Hannah Brown, was also the son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Robeson) Ogle.

The Ogles have confused a lot of researchers because Thomas was the son of John and Elizabeth (Robinson) Ogle and John was the son of John and Elizabeth (Hicks) Ogle. It's easy to get lost among the Elizabeth's.

Thomas came to VA in 1763 but reportedly, Indian troubles caused them to move to Rowan Co, NC. In 1789, he bought land in (then) Montgomery Co, VA which eventually became Carroll. His home was on what is today the "Waterplant Road" in north Hillsville. His will was proven in March Court of 1803. Several of his children moved west into Tennessee where there are scads of Ogles and into Indiana where there is an Ogle county today.
