I am a POGUE descendant of ELIZABETH JANE 'LIZZIE' POGUE (5 Jan 1937 Oquawka, IL - 1 Mar 1907 Steady Run, Keokuk Co., IA) who married JOHN L. TERRILL (30 May 1833 - 12 Nov 1906 Steady Run, Keokuk Co., IA). She was the daughter of ELEAZER POGUE (7 Dec 1813 Muskingum Co., OH - 12 Apr 1901). He was the son of a JOHN POGUE (III)(b: 28 Feb 1819) and ELIZABETH BROOK (b: 12 Feb 1816). JOHN (III) was the son of JOHN POGUE (Jr./II) born 1787 in Ireland, whose wife was a Sarah Farmer. His father was JOHN POGUE (Sr./I) born in 1758 in Ireland.
All of the POGUE/POLLOCK family is very well documented in a wonderfully comprehensive book authored by John Marshall Pogue, MD and his father, Lloyd Welsh Pogue, Esq. (who died in 2002 at age 103!). They reside in Chevy Chase, MD, and the book is still in print and available on-line. I found it to be a gold-mine of source data.
The daughter, and one of 5 children, of JOHN L. TERRILL and LIZZIE POGUE was EMMA "EMILY" LAVERA TERRILL (9 Jan 1875, Hedrick, Keokuk Co., IA - 19 Jul 1930 ElDorado, KS), my maternal grandmother. On 24 Dec 1896 she was married in Hedrick, IA to a ROBERT LEROY SCOTT (11 Apr 1972 - Nov 1954) of Hedrick, IA. He was one of 3 sons of ROBERT SHAW SCOTT HOFF and LOUISA BECK of Hedrick, IA. The daughter (and one of the 2 offspring) of EMMA LAVERA TERRILL and ROBERT LEROY SCOTT, was VALETTA FLORENCE SCOTT (24 Jul 1912 Boise, ID - Now living in Des moines, IA - my mother). Her brother was ROBERT ORION SCOTT (1901 Hedrick IA - 23 Aug 1972 Redwood City, CA). On 1 Sep 1934 in Des Moines {DSM}, IA she married my father, JOHN RICHARD HOFF (6 Feb 1909 DSM, IA - 4 Nov 1970 DSM, IA), who was the son (and one of 3 children) of JOHN CASSIUS HOFF (5 Mar 1875 Dallas Co., IA - 10 Mar 1960 DSM, IA) and MABEL MINA TENNANT (11 Feb 1888 Oscalooska, IA - 16 Mar 1963 DSM, IA). VALETTA SCOTT HOFF had 2 sons: ROBERT ENNANT HOFF (24 JUL 1948 DSM, IA - Now living in Washington, DC), and me, JOHN SCOTT HOFF (2 Jan 1846 DSM, IA - Now living in Chicago, IL). I have two children through wife, SHIRLEY JO WARD (7 Mar 1947 Chicago, IL - Now living in Winnetka, IL). They are: JENNIFER JO HOFF (13 Sep 1982 Hoffman Est., IL - Now living in Winnetka, IL and unmarried), and JOHN BARON HOFF (29 Sep 1984 Hoffman Est., IL - Now living in Winnetka, IL and unmarried). So, that is my Pogue Family connection, through my great grandmother, ELIZABETH JANE 'LIZZY' POGUE. I would welcome family contact directly via phone at (312) 346-8111 at my work or via E/mail at <>
