Oops!! In my previous message I mis-spelled KOGER (although it has been found spelled that way, too. My mother-in-law was a Koger, descended from William and Mary Polly > through their son Charles Cagle Koger and Sytha Rice >John Preston Koger and Nancy Jane Simpson> William Richard Koger and Louisa Marona. Charles and Sytha migrated to Jackson County, Alabama, and others lived in DeKalb County, Alabama. Any information on Kogers appreciated.

KOGAR (sometimes seen COGAR)

Saw Koger information from Pam in response to Michelle. William Koger and Mary Polly Bookout are my husband's ancestors. Seeking info on Mary's parents, grandparents, etc. Also need info on Sytha Rice Koger's parents, William Rice and Jane/Jean Baker Rice. Thanks. Would appreciate private response, too;I am unable to access your email address.

Hi, I have a (probably) unrelated question about Kogers in Clinton and Wayne Counties. I have a friend named Koger whose family is from the Columbia SC area. Is there any connnection you know of between these families? He once told me that a Koger ancestor was a circuit-riding preacher.

I believe James Jones Sr. and Jr. one of both of them could have a daughter with that name. But who they married I have no idea. I'm thinking you would need to look under James Jr. because of the date.

My Grandmother married Roy Slagle in the early 40's in Wayne County. Later, they, along with there 5 childeren, migrated to Muncie, IN. I am unsure of my great grandparents names. Do you have any info?
