About Stephen Hoggatt

Stephen Hoggatt was born on 6 April 1767 in Guilford County, North Carolina. He was the son of William Hoggatt and Hannah Beals.

He married Margaret Thornburg, daughter of Joseph Thornburg and Ann Armfield, at New Garden Monthly Meeting in Guilford County, North Carolina, on 8 March 1786.

A brief account of Stephen Hockett and family: He was married in N Carolina where he and wife Margaret commenced in very low circumstance to make a living, he having but one horse and it soon died; this lost was keenly felt, yet they persevered. Having but little land open to cultivate, he managed to raise a good crop of wheat and corn in one season, on one lot of ground. Of being in corn the previous season a few weeks before harvest he pulled up the corn stub or roots, his wife was dropping corn there in, and he covering it with the hoe. Then when the wheat was taken off the ground he commenced tending his corn and this made a good crop. I mention this that the reader may form an idea of the man. He finally moved to Ohio, and resided there a few years, and then to Indiana, Randolph Co where he bought land for himself and sons; and lived there until his children were all married. Now they had lived to a good old age but the news came to his ear that there was good rich prairie in Iowa, and he seemed to think it would be best for him and offspring to cross the great Father of waters. And accordingly he and many of his connections came here in the spring of 1837 and settled near Salem. But it was not long until they went the way of all the earth. He deceased the 26th of the 6th mo 1839 72 years 2 months and 20 days. His wife deceased 23d of ninth mo 1843; aged 76years 8 months and 11 days. They were both consistent members of the Society of Friends. Their children were all living (eleven in number) at the time of her death, and if I am not mistaken, had not a doctor in their family until they were all grown.

On the 12th day, 6th month, 1806(12 June 1806), at Miami Monthly Meeting in Warren County, Ohio,, Stephen and Margaret were received on certificate from New Garden Monthly Meeting, North Carolina. Their children William, Joseph, Isaac, Ann, Hannah, Phebe, Stephen, Edward and Margaret came with them. This certificate was dated 9th month, 28th day, 1805. As of 1821, Stephen Hoggatt was also known as Hockett.

Stephen died on 26 June 1839 in Salem Township, Henry County, Iowa, at age 72. Note: No marker available. He is actually buried in the oldest grave yard for Salem, which is somewhere in the town of Salem. Others say he is buried at Cedar Creek Cemetery (Salem, Henry County, Iowa). No documentation has been found other than the Hockett Book that says he died in Salem.
