I am trying to get information on African American’s with the “surnames” of Bogan ,Bogans or possibly Bogany. My great-grandmother's mother name was Jane Bogan. In the census of 1880 Jane was living with her daughter Minerva Bogan in Polk County, TX.Minerva was divorced from her first husband Pleasant Walker who was my Great grand-father. Pleasant and Minerva (Bogan) Walker had five children. The children were Susie, Willie, Floyd ,Pleasant (Pleas my granfather) and Dennis.All of the children are listed as Bogan in the 1880 census but they were the children of Pleasant Walker, their names are listed as Walker in later census records.After Pleasant and Minerva were divorced she married a man named King Roberts. Minerva also had a twins whose names were Bessie and Dessie Mayo. I have no information on who the twins father might have been
In the census of 1900 Jeffery Walker( Minerva’s son), the twins and Leo Calep who is identified as a grandson are members of King and Minerva’s household. I am not sure where Jane was born as her place of birth is Alabama in one census and Tennessee in another. One last bit of information that might be helpful is that many of the people mentioned here are listed as Mulatto. I don't know what impact that might have on the research but I feel that any information could prove valuable.
I would like to speak with anyone with information on this family, I will be happy to share the information I have gathered on the family thus far. I can be contacted at email@example.com or via my cell phone, the number is 832-882-3408.

I notice the Farrow Web Site and the Harvey Web Site have information about my 2nd cousin Georgina Elizabeth Harvey nee Brady. Am hoping a person from those sites will make contact as although I have the birth and marriage of her parents in Co Cork Ireland, I cannot after years find the deaths. They lived in Cobh/Queenstown Co Cork when Georgina Elizabeth was born The mother was also Georgina Elizabeth Brady and was the sister of my grandmother. Her husband was Daniel Brady. They were third cousins I believe. Hoping the above or anyone with information will make contact. Thanking you Maureen
