John Pogue was born in Gwinnett Co., Georgia in 1828. He moved to Fayette Co., AL sometime during the 1850's. He survived the war and moved to Montague co., TX and than up into the Choctaw Nation of modern Oklahoma. He died in 1889 and is buried in a small, rural cemetary near Velma, OK.
He and his wife, Julian (Duncan) Pogue had a large family. Several of their daughters, along with their families, were pioneers in Washita Co, OK during the 1890's.
The Pogue name no longer exists in Washita Co., but many of the residents of that area can trace their ancestry back to John Pogue through his daughters. Including me, the great-grandson of Levi and Nancy (Pogue) Emerson.
