Looking for my ancestors
I am trying to get information on African American families with the surnames of Bogan ,Bogans or possibly Boggany. My great-grandmother's mother name was Jane Bogan. In the census of 1880 Jane is listed as being divorced and living with her daughter Minerva Bogan in Polk County, TX. Minerva was also divorced from her first husband Pleasant Walker who was my Great grand-father. Pleasant and Minerva (Bogan) Walker had five children. The children were Susie, Willie, Floyd ,Pleasant (Pleas) my grandfather and Dennis. All of the children are listed as Bogan in the 1880 census but they were the children of Pleas Walker and they are correctly identified as Walker in later census records. After Pleas and Minerva were divorced she had twins whose names were Bessie and Dessie Mayo. The father is listed as Jeffery Mayo. Minerva then married a man named King Roberts. In the census of 1900 she listed as the wife of King Roberts (Head of Household) there is a Jeffery Walker who is identified as Minervas son, Bessie and Dessie Mayo and Leo Calep who is identified as a grandson of the head of household. I am not sure where Jane Born was born or who her parents were. Her place of birth is Alabama in one census and Tennessee in another.
I would like to speak with anyone with information on this family, I will be happy to share the information I have gathered on the family thus far. I can be contacted at [email protected]
