Foggs in Winn, Maine

In Reply to: Fogg Family of Exeter, Maine by Robert L. Leathers of 915


I bumped into your genforum post with great interest. My mother is a Fogg and traces to a big Fogg family that once lived in Winn, Maine. The ancestor is John Fogg, b. about 1810. He appeared in the 1840 Burlington census, and 1850 Township 4 census, right below Springfield. In fact, they lived on the Township4/Springfield border. My great grandfather, was born in 1856 in Sprinfield. Shortly thereafter, the family moved to Winn, Maine and was present as a family for the 1860 Winn census. Then the family moved in different directions. My great grandfather, Fred Fogg and his brother, Darius, went to Forest City on the Maine/New Brunswick border and were there for about 20 years. Ira Fogg, another brother, stayed in Winn for the 1870 census, but died in 1874 and is buried in Winn. One daughter, Rebecca, married Albert Moore and they were in the 1870 census, but then went elsewhere and I can't find them. John Fogg's ancestry has been a mystery. He suggested he was born in Lower Canada, but that has been a dead end for me. Phyllis Whitten in her book could not identify John Fogg's ancestry. One theory, is that he was connected to the Foggs around Garland/Exeter/Sangereville, etc. only because he named his first born son, Ira, a name associated with Garland Foggs. If so, the family probably has roots in NH. Anyway, I'm quite intersted in hearing from you. Feel free to email me directly at

Best regards,

Ken Clark
