There was a lot of information in your post, but I think that we might be able to help each other. I also am researching (slowly) on the Brogden line. My 4th ggmother was Mary Harper Brogden b 17 Mar 1824 in North Carolina. She married Benjamin Franklin Marion abt 1848 in Alabama? They had 6 children all born in Alabama. They lived in Madison Co.
I think that I might have her linked to parents, but I haven't proven it yet. Lack of time and money. I have 3 young children at home.
Several years ago I found a book in SL that was called Betts Generations: Early 1613-1991
It had some Brogden's listed in the family. Like I said I think I have linked in, but haven't proven it.
I believe that her father was John Brogden b. abt 1804 in N.C. They lived in Granville Co. He married Susannah Hoofman 22 Dec 1824. They had the 8 children. The first two are the ones I haven't proven.
1. Mary Harper
2. female child
4. Jacob James T b. 1832/33 in Tennessee married Sarah T. Clark 14 Sept 1854. He died in Tennessee
5. Deliah Catherine
8. Minerva Ann
John's father was Willis Brogden.
I found a John Brogden on the 1830 census with two female children, but children 3-8 didn't fit. My Mary Harper did. They weren't supposed to be married until 1824, and Mary Harper was born in March of 1824.
I talked to the lady who wrote the book on the phone and she said that it was possible. She hadn't done a lot of research on this line, because it wasn't a direct line. She said that a lot of people would say they were getting married, and would live together like they were until the preacher came around on the circut. Like I said though, I would like definate proof.
Sounds like we might be working on collateral lines though.
Sorry that I am rambling. Hope that we can help each other.
