I have a dilemma. I have been searching for the Hoags in my family and haven't had much luck with it. I am looking for a "Bert" Hoag. It may have been an Albert, Robert or a Herbert Hoag, who married Carrie Brands (who was adopted. Her name before it was changed, was Clara Laramie). He was born in March of 1875 in Pennsylvania somewhere. He died in 1956. She was born in Merritt, Wisconsin in 1881. She died December 26, 1963? in Sioux City, Iowa. They were married in Ponca, Nebraska. They had three children: James LeRoy Hoag who was born Oct. 21, 1897. He died: May of 1908 in Whitting, Monroe County, Iowa. Ernest Hoag who was born: July 16, 1905. He died: April 22, 1995 in South Sioux City, Dakota County, Nebraska. He was blind at the time of his death. And Elsie Mae Hoag (My grandmother) who was born: September 9, 1909 in Obert, Nebraska. She died: November 6, 1953. If you know any information on any of these people, please let me know. Especially on Bert and Clara (Carrie). Thanks.
