About Joseph Bogle II

Joseph Bogle II was the eldest son of Joseph Bogle I

Joseph Bogle served in the Revolutionary War, in the Cumberland Co. Militia and he also served under Capt. Gibson, Capt. Gray, Col. Boyer, and Capt. Campbell. He was at Trenton and was at Cornwallis’ surrender at Yorktown. He died July 6, 1790 and is buried in the Eusebia Church Cemetery, Blount County, TN.

Although his occupation is unknown, he did hold a patent in 1750 in York Co., PA.

One Joseph Bogle, in 1771, owned two hundred acres in Pennsylvania, and in 1772 was living here with two horses and two cows. In 1775 an Andrew Bogle appears as owning a horse and cow. In 1779, a Joseph Bogle bought the William Armstrong tract in Pennsylvania, and in the same year sold it to William Stewart. The Dames of Bogle disappear from the tax-list in 1779, presumably because his father had died in 1780 and this Joseph may have inherited the above mentioned property from his father Joseph. I am not sure if the property listing above is his father Joseph Bogle or it could be this Joseph, or his nephew who was also called Joseph Bogle, who came from the same Pennsylvania family.


It is known that THIS Joseph Bogle moved from Pennsylvania to Tennessee.

A Joseph Bogle b. 1730 was a founding member of the Eusebia Presbyterian church in Seymour, TN and is buried there with his wife. This Joseph is also listed by the DAR as a revolutionary war veteran, on their marker in front of the Eusebia County courthouse.

JOSEPH BOGLE was born 1730 in Scotland, and died September 06, 1790 in Knox Co., TN. He married JEAN JANE MCINTIRE June 08, 1752 in "Lancashire", Lancaster Co., PA, daughter of ANDREW MCINTIRE and MRS MCINTIRE. She was born Abt. 1730, and died June 14, 1797.

Brothers Joseph Bogle, Malcom Bogle and William Bogle are found in the "Alphabetical Listing of the Inhabitants of York County" for the year 1762. They are listed as living in Windsor township, York County, Pennsylvania and it is believed that they were brothers. Family tradition is that the Bogle families left Scotland going to Ireland and immigrated from County Downe, Ireland to Pennsylvania. From Pennsylvania the families and/or descendents migrated to Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio and Tennessee.

In 1763 William Bogle is residing in York Co., Pennsylvania; along with Joseph and Malcolm, who died in York Co., PA 1799. A land deed recorded 1763 in York Co., PA specifically mentions Joseph’s brother William. Joseph is listed with the taxables in Fermanaugh Twp., Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania 1771-1778. He is not listed in 1782 so it is assumed he had moved by then. Joseph moved to Blount County (then North Carolina), Tennessee in 1786. His will is dated 14 Dec 1789 and is recorded in Knox Co., Tennessee 17 July 1792 (Blount Co was formed from Knox Co. in 1795). The Samuel Bogle (son of William) settled in Wilson Co Tn from Iredell Co, NC circa 1800. Members of the Malcolm Bogle line are know to have settled in Ohio.

Other than the land deed mentioning Joseph Bogle’s brother William I have no other documentation that tells us Blount county Joseph and William are brothers. There is a 1767 York Co PA civil court record referring to land deeded to William that adjoins Joseph Bogle. William Bogle is listed in the 1790 Cumberland Co.,PA census. I have seen research by others saying William and Mary Bogle came to Rowan Co, N.C. about 1776 from Franklin Co., Pa. formerly Cumberland Co.; about 1786-1792 they moved to Wilson County, Tenn. where William died abt. 1818. It is not likely that William lived to age 88 years and outlived all of his sons. William Sr. probably died in NC or PA. The William Bogle shown on the Wilson County Tax lists is likely the son of Samuel Bogle. This William is also probably the same William Bogle who appears in the Edwards Co IL 1820 census along with several other former Wilson Co., TN families. He left orphans who appear later in Gipson Co., TN with some o! f the same families who had settled in Edwards Co. IL.

The earliest record I have found for the Bogle family in NC is recorded 1769 in Rowan Co. where Samuel, Robert & James Bogle are shown on the 1778 Rowan Co. Tax list in Capt. Falls District. Samuel Bogle was also listed as bondsman for his sister Martha’s 1776 marriage to Samuel Bryson recorded in Rowan Co., NC.

Wilson Co., TN records indicate that Samuel along with sons Robert, William removed to Wilson Co., TN early. Samuel’s name is on the 1805 Wilson County Tennessee tax list in Capt. Leech’s district on Sanders Fork. I find no entry for Samuel Bogle on the 1800 NC census so the move could have been prior to that or he may have been on the road in 1800. Maybe they stopped off to visit their Blount County relatives along the way? Samuel’s will was probated in Wilson Co., TN in 1806. Samuel’s sister Martha and her husband Samuel Bryson also migrated to Wilson Co., TN. Samuel & Martha Bogle Bryson are listed in Buncombe Co., NC in 1800 but moved to Wilson Co.,TN circa 1807. Tennessee celebrated statehood in 1796 and Wilson County was formed from Sumner County in 1799. If there are earlier records of migration than 1804 I have not found them in Sumner Co or other TN county records.

Is the James listed on the 1778 Rowan Co., TN tax list the same James who died in Franklin Co., PA? The tax list entry is all I find of James in Rowan or Iredell Co records. He may have never lived there or did not stay long. Isabella HALL left a will in Cumberland Co., PA dated February 1, 1790 and probated May 14, 1793. It names daughter Mary Bogle and son-in-law James Bogle. It makes no mention of residence of James. No records were found in Cumberland Co. after 1781 for James son of Joseph Bogle because he had removed to Va. where he died about 1788. So we know the James Bogle mentioned in this will listed in the 1790 Cumberland Co census is not the son of Joseph Bogle.

James Bogle who married Mary Hall is likely the son of William Bogle. I am told that this James died in Franklin Co.,PA but have seen no proof of that. There are deeds recorded in Franklin Co.,PA that refer to James Bogle & wife Sarah and there are references to James Bogle of Cumberland Co., PA as well as transactions of Joseph Bogle and his wife Rachel. Joseph Bogle is brother of James and married Rachel Maes. This Joseph left a will dated June 25, 1807 which was probated 1811 in Franklin Co PA. It names his brothers, his sisters and nephews. He refers to his brother Robert as being dec’d. (He died 1802 in Iredell Co, NC)

It is also possible that James & Mary Hall Bogle are the parents of George Bogle. George removed in Wilson Co.,TN from Iredell Co., NC after 1810. George H. Bogle’s name appears on the Wilson Co.,TN tax list in 1804, 1805 & 1807 showing unpaid taxes for property on Spencer Creek. He is listed on the 1810 Iredell Co., NC census but appears on the Wilson Co. TN census in 1820. My records indicate that George was born circa 1786. If this is correct and he is the same george found on the Wilson Co. TN tax list in 1804 he was a landowner at the young age of 18. How did he acquire property? Was it inherited?

With the Bible records left by Jenny Smith Bogle, wife of Robert Bogle who died 1802 in Iredell Co NC, we have additional evidence of the family relationship for the William Bogle family. The bible states that Robert’s parents were William Bogle & Mary. Robert’s son William also left a bible record of his family. This group remained in NC and has been well recorded.

I have much more on the middle TN Bogle families. I have done extensive research on them and am a direct descendent of Samuel Bogle and his sister Martha Bogle Bryson. My hopes are to publish this information in a manuscript soon to share with all. In the meantime I hope this small bit of information will help others and possibly stimulate further research on this line. _____________________________
