"JOHN OGDEN (Nathaniel, Joseph, Joseph, John), b. ____; will dated Feb. 6, 1803, proved Mar. 9, 1803. 1st m. PRUDENCE ROLFE; 2d m. ANN (Nevins) VAN SICKLE. John Ogden lived in or near New Brunswick, N. J." [followed by a list of 13 children with dates and spouses].

See text for his spouse Ann Nevius for further information about her (including the correct spelling apparently of her surname) and their marriage.

NJ Calendar of Wills, 1801-1805, p 335:

"1803, Feb. 6. Ogden, John, of the Northward of New Brunswick, Middlesex Co.: will of. Wife, Ann, the property she brought with her; also to be provided for, while my widow. 60 acres to be sold for the support of children. Daughter, Mercy Obart, 1 1/2 acre of meadow below ye saw-mill. Son, Benjamin and daughter, Phebe, each L10. Wife's daughter, Eufany, L10. Residue of real and personal to be equally divided among my children [not named]. Executors - son, Benjamin Ogden, and Jonathan Combs. Witnesses - William Ryder, Jacob Dunham, Jonathan Combs. Proved Mar. 9, 1803. Lib. 40, p. 247.

1803, Feb. 24. Inventory, $550.06: made by William Ryder and Garline Ockerman. File 9990 L."

"Northward" above means "North Ward". See below.

NJ Rateables, Middlesex Co, New Brunswick, North Ward, April 1779 and June 1780, p 25-7:

"(Benjamin Ogden hh)
...
David Ogden hh (tavern)
...
James Ogden 200; 3h, 13c, 4p (2h, 8c, 9p)
...
John Ogden 100; 4c (hh only)"

This places the four brothers in New Brunswick, Benjamin for the latter date only (Jun 1780) and the other three on both dates (Apr 1779 and Jun 1780).

Apparently JOHN and brother Benjamin were Privates in the NJ Militia. Stryker has the following under State Troops and Militia, Privates, pp 706-7:

"OGDEN, BENJAMIN. Middlesex.
...
OGDEN, JOHN. Middlesex."

This is not much to go on, and I have no corroborating evidence that these are indeed our Benjamin and JOHN but time and place indicate so. The NARA has Revolutionary War service records for Pvt Benjamin Ogden and for both a Lt John Ogden and a Pvt JOHN OGDEN (making an assumption based on slim evidence). Here is JOHN's; see Pvt Benjamin for his.

NARA Roll 643: Van Cortlandt's Battalion, New Jersey Militia (1777-1780):
Lieutenant Lieutenant
"John Ogden

This implies that there was both a Lt and a Pvt John Ogden present at the same time.

Middlesex Co Gravestones, p 143:

"Obert, Peter*; wife Mercy, dau. of John & Prudence Ogden. Stone broken, portion with death date and age could not be found.
...

[The asterisks represent, apparently, unreadable parts of the stones.] JOHN was born circa 1743.5 He married PRUDENCE ROLFE circa 1775.6 He resided at New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, USA, in April 1779, North Ward.3 He resided at New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, USA, in June 1780, North Ward.3 He married Ann Nevius at New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, USA, on 4 August 1802.1,7,8 He made a will at New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, USA, on 6 February 1803.9,10 His body was interred at South Brunswick Twp, Middlesex, New Jersey, USA, at Obert Family Burying Ground.11 JOHN's will was probated at Middlesex, New Jersey, USA, on 9 March 1803.12,10

Ann Nevius1,2

F
     Ann was born. She Ogden Family, p 147:

"JOHN OGDEN ... 2d m. ANN (Nevins) VAN SICKLE."

Wheeler uses the notation NAME (Surname) SURNAME to mean woman Miss NAME Surname married Mr SURNAME and widowed by him. (See for example p 99 for MARY (Reading) GRAY dau of Daniel Reading and widow of Arthur Gray.

One of the few places where I can correct Wheeler is in Ann's surname at birth. It was Nevius, not Nevins, I am sure. Nevius was a common surname in New Brunswick, Middlesex Co, NJ at the time, as was Van Sickle. And we have the following marriage record for her and JOHN OGDEN:

Marriages Performed by Rev Joseph Clark, Middlesex Co, 1797-1813, pp 92-3:

"1802
...
John Ogden to Ann Nevius, N. B., Aug. 4"
[N. B. = New Brunswick]

There are three other Van Sickles and one other Nevius on this same page (p 93), probably marriages of brothers and sisters or other close kin.

I am also able to add the date of their marriage to Wheeler, 4 Aug 1802. This is consistent with John and Prudence having their last child 6 Jul 1800. She married (?) Sickle.3 She married Pvt JOHN OGDEN [Og365] at New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, USA, on 4 August 1802.4,5,2

Note that the two sources differ on the marriage date slightly. I'll go with the Middlesex Records and call this one of the few "errors" I've found in Wheeler.

Abraham was born at New Jersey, USA, on 13 July 1791.2,1,3 He married Mary Errickson at Middlesex, New Jersey, USA, on 29 January 1812.

     David "Squire" Ogden [Og2207] Dale Parrott has this obituary from the Crestline Advocate, 1 Sep 1898:

"PIONEER CITIZEN GONE TO HIS REST
"DAVID OGDEN

"While it was known by many in this city that David Ogden was seriously ill and his recovery an impossibility, yet when the news of his death early Saturday morning, Aug 27, was announced it was a shock to many of his friends. Now it does not seem true that the old familiar face of 'Squire Ogden will never be seen on the street, in his office, at his accustomed seat in the Presbyterian church or at the secretary's desk in the F. & A. M. lodge room. He has gone from earth-life forever.

"David Ogden was brought to Crawford County by his parents in the spring of 1828, they having removed from Knox County where the subject of this sketch was born in 1819, and located on land where afterward the town of Crestline was built. For about 70 years Mr. Ogden lived here. He witnessed and took part in cutting down trees in the native forest, helped break the virgin soil, and saw the present town of Crestline grow up from a dreary looking tract of swamp land. He was early identified with the town and remained one of its representative citizens, honorable, upright and an honest man. When a young man he learned the milling trade, which business he followed for about fifteen years, and later he found employment with the Pennsylvania railroad company, working in the shops here for a number of years.

"In 1844 he was united in marriage to Mary Kirkland. Children were born to them but all with the wife preceeded him to that mysterious home of the soul.

"From the organization of our town to within a couple of years ago Mr. Ogden was a prominent figure having served as Mayor, Justice of the Peace and filled other minor offices to the credit of himself and those who placed him there. Hon. John Ogden, a brother is the only surviving member of the family. His home is in North Dakota and he was unable to attend the funeral, which took place Monday afternoon under the auspices of the Masons of this place of which he was a highly respected member."

In fact, David Ogden was the first Mayor of Crestline and SILAS DURAND was the seoncd one. See text for SILAS DURAND.

History of Crawford Co OH, p 859:

"DAVID OGDEN, Justice of the Peace, Crestline; was born in Knox Co., Ohio, in 1819, and came with his parents to Crestline in April, 1828, being one of the pioneers of the county. Mr. Ogden first learned the miller's trade, and worked at that business for about fifteen years. Since that time, he has been engaged in various coccupations, and, for the past twenty years, working in the carshops of the P., F. W. & D. R. R., at Crestline. Mr. Ogden was Justice of the Peace from 1853 to 1862; has also been Township Clerk for a period of six years. He drew up the papers and petition for the boundaries of Crestline, and was its first Mayor. Mr. Ogden was also the prime mover in securing the union school in 1858, his brother, John Ogden, now Principal of the Ohio Central Schol, delivering a lecture upon that subject at that time, which tended to help the movement. Mr. Ogden has always been a friend to every movement tending to improve Crestline in any form. He was married in 1844, to Mary J. Kirkland, of Richland Co. They have only one child living - Ellen. Mr. and Mrs. Ogden are both members of the Presbyterian Church."

Wheeler p 380:

"He removed in childhood to what is now Crestline, O; was educated by his own efforts; studied at Wesleyan University, Delaware, O., and for 3 years was Principal of its normal department, and then for 3 years Principal of McNeely (O.) State Normal School; was Principal of the State Normal School, Winona, Minn., 1859-62; served in the U. S. Vols. 1862-65; was founder of Fisk University, Nashville, Tenn., and for a time Principal; afterward became connect with Worthington (O.) Normal School; was author of 'The Science of Education.' "

Dale Parrott has this obituary for his brother David from the Crestline Advocate, 1 Sep 1898:

"PIONEER CITIZEN GONE TO HIS REST
DAVID OGDEN
...
Hon. John Ogden, a brother is the only surviving member of the family. His home is in North Dakota and he was unable to attend the funeral, which took place Monday afternoon ..."

Fisk University History:

"Barely six months after the end of the Civil War, and just two years after the Emancipation Proclamation, three men - John Ogden, the Reverend Erastus Milo Cravath, and the Reverend Edward P. Smith - established the Fisk School in Nashville ...

... Ogden, Cravath, and Smith, along with others in their movement, shared a dream of an educational institution that would be open to all, regardless of race, and that would measure itself by "the highest standards, not of Negro education, but of American education at its best." Their dream was incorporated as Fisk University on August 22, 1867.

...Fisk faculty and alumni have been among America's intellectual, artistic, and civic leaders in every generation since the University's beginnings. Among them have been such figures as W.E.B. DuBois (Fisk class of 1888), the great social critic and co-founder of the NAACP. Booker T. Washington - the great educator who was DuBois' famous philosophical adversary as well as the founder of Tuskegee University - served on Fisk's Board of Trustees, married a Fisk alumna, and sent his own children to Fisk ..."

John was born at Mount Vernon, Knox, Ohio, USA, on 12 February 1824.5,6 He married Mary Jane Mitchell at Mansfield, Richland, Ohio, USA, on 5 July 1849.5,6

     NATHANIEL OGDEN [Og99] The Ogden Family by W O Wheeler, p 90, item 99:

"NATHANIEL OGDEN (Joseph, Joseph, John), b. _____; d._____; m. Dec. 24, 1740, JUDITH BOQUETT, of New Brunswick, N. J. ("Boquett" is sometimes spelled "Foquett.")"

and

"The New Brunswick marriage records speak of NATHANIEL OGDEN as being from Elizabethtown, N. J. He was a Freeholder in New Brunswick in 1748. Two of his children, Phebe and Benjamin, were baptized in Presbyterian Ch., New York City."

[followed by a list of six children, their dates and spouses.]

NB, p 147, item 364, son David Ogden:

"David Ogden was of Middlesex Co., N. J., where records of his father NATHANIEL OGDEN and family's real estate transactions, etc. are on file."

NJ Marriage Records 1665-1800:

p 291: "Ogden, Nathaniel, Elizabethtown, and Judith Bouquett, New Bruns'k. 1740 Dec. 24"

p 51: "Bonquett, Judith, New Brunswick, and Nathaniel Ogden, Elizabetht'wn. 1740 Dec. 24"

So BOUQUETT and BONQUETT are two other spellings.

NJ Calendar of Wills, 1730-1750, p 216, lists NATHANIEL OGDEN as witness and taker of inventory for Thomas hance of New Brunswick, Middlesex Co whose will is dated 15 Jul 1746, proved 13 Aug 1746, inventory 28 Oct 1746.

From the Brunswick Gazette (NJ Newspapers), 12 Oct 1790, p 352:

"Nathaniel Ogden, bricklayer and paver, New Brunswick, intends to leave this place on Thursday next. All accounts may be settled with him at Major Thomas Egbert's in Albany street"

This comes shortly after the 17 Aug 1790 notice in the same newspaper, p 351:

"William Ryder and James Drake, New Brunswick, adv. for sale a farm, late the property of Benjamin Ogden, deceased, in Middlesex County ..."

Surely these two items are related. The question is, How are the two Ogdens related? Is Nathaniel our NATHANIEL, the father of Benjamin? We don't know when NATHANIEL died, so it is conceivable that he is still alive in 1790, in his 70s. Is it surprising that he decides to move away ("leave this place") on his youngest son's death? Perhaps he was living with Benjamin and no longer has a place to live since the farm is being sold? He IS the only Nathaniel we know of in Middlesex Co at the time. And since we don't know where he moved, perhaps it is not surprising that we can't find his death information.

There is another Nathaniel Ogden who might be the one referred to in this article. He is No 382 in The Ogden Family (p 150). He would be 33 years of age at the time, and he is described as "a mason by trade". Unfortunately, however, he was born, lived, and owned property in New York City. There are several other Nathaniels listed in The Ogden Family, but none of them seems to fit the bill. In particular none of them are recorded as having lived in Middlesex Co NJ. So we are left with the conclusion that NATHANIEL was alive 12 Oct 1790 and moved elsewhere to die.

The only fly in the ointment is that we haven't taken into account the fact that his two youngest children were baptized in New York City in 1749 and 1751 (the latter being Benjamin). So he appears to have lived outside Middlesex Co for a while at least.

NY First Presbyterian Church, p 102:

"Phebe Ogden born October th 22, (Dafter of Nathanael and Judeth Ogden) 1749.
benjamin ogden sun of Nathannael and Judeth ogden born october the 27 1751."

The NARA has Revolutionary War service records for Pvt Nathaniel Ogden that parallels almost exactly that of Pvt Benjamin Ogden whom we believe is ours. However, I am not convinced the following Nathaniel is our NATHANIEL but include this information because of its similarity to Benjamin's:

NARA Roll 640: Dayton's Battalion, NJ:
