About James Hoge

DAR Ancestor # A056527 Patriotic Service

William Hoge 1660-1749 married Barbara Hume 1667-1745.


  • James Hoge 1706-1795 married (1st) Agnes Crawford; m (2nd) Nancy Griffith. They were progenitors of the Southwest Virginia Hoges.

Most books and records record Agnes Crawford as his first wife and Nancy Griffiths as his second wife. However, I, along with some other current Hoge/Hogue family researchers believe that his will proves otherwise. His will has been found in several places but most noticeably in the Frederick County, Virginia Will Book pages 90 and 92.

It states thus: Wife: Agnus Hoge, Children: Moses, James, Solomon, John, Edward (deceased), Martha Allen, Mary Evans, Barbara Reed. Grand children: Moses and Edwards, sons of Edward, deceased.

"Being somewhat ailing in body to wife, negro Jude beside her thirds. Personal estate to be appraised except the still; remainder to children as wife decides. If she marries, all but widow's thirds to be divided , half to son Moses, quarter to son James, quarter to daughter Martha Allen. To grandsons Moses and Edward Hoge, land in survey made by Thomas Buck, 186 acres Moses to enjoy whole until his brother Edward is 21. If one dies, survivor to have whole. Son Solomon Hoge to have all the rest of the land, conditioned on his payment of legacies; to John Hoge, son, to Mary Evans, to Barbara Reed - 5 shellings if they come to demand it; to son James, 20 pounds; to daughter Martha Allen, 15 pounds. Wife and Solomon to share plantation as outlined, EXR: wife Agnes Hoge. Witnesses: John Setzer, Phillip Barr, Mary Setzer. SEC: Peter Senseney - John Setzer. Bond of 2000 pounds."

Besides the children of Nancy are much older than the children of Agnes.


David E. Johnston in A History of The Middle New River Settlements... states that Agnes (no maiden name) was his first wife and Mary (no maiden name) was his second.

He states Mary appears as his wife on a deed in 1758, "the names of three of the sons were, Solomon, Edward and Moses"
