Thomas Ogle was the son of John Ogle and his wife Elizabeth.(1) John Ogle was born September 30, 1649, in Berick Upon Tweed, Northumberland, England.(2) He died in 1683 in New Castle, Delaware.(3)

John Ogle, 1646-1684, a young officer, eighteen years of age, in the English Military Expeditionary force under Colonel Richard Nichols, sent by King Charles II and the Duke of York to terminate Dutch influence and colonization in America, landed in 1664. Following the successful conclusion of this military task, young Ogle remained in the new world. The Duke of York through governor Richard Nichols granted John Ogle some eight hundred acres of land, on White Clay Creek, near New Castle on the Delaware in 1672. He soon disposed of this tract of land and purchased other tracts near Ogleton, Delaware.(4)

The maiden name of John Ogle's wife, Elizabeth, is not known with certainty. There are some who contend John's wife was Elizabeth Wollaston, who was born in 1651 in Northumberland, England and who died in 1713 in New Castle, Delaware. These supporters contend that John and Elizabeth were married in 1667 in New Castle, Delaware.
(One World Tree cite articles) (5) There are also strong supporters for Elizabeth Petersdotter as John Ogle's wife. This Elizabeth was born in 1654 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and died in 1702 in New Castle, Delaware. Supporters of this Elizabeth believe the her and John Ogle were married about 1671 in New Castle, Delaware.(One World Tree - cite articles) (6).

Thomas Ogle was born in 1666 in New Castle (county?), Delaware.
(8)

After the death of John Ogle, his son, Thomas Ogle, after whom Ogleton, Delaware, was named(?), remained on the home farm of his father and increased his holdings to 2,500 acres.
(7) Ogletown, Delaware, was a small hamlet that grew up around the intersection of the "Great Road from Christiana Bridge to Head of Elk" and England’s Mill Road, now Rts. 4 and 273, where Thomas Ogle(which Thomas Ogle) had built a house and tavern by 1739. Maps dating to the 1800s show an inn and six or seven houses around the intersection, and by 1868 there was also a school. Besides its long history, the intersection was located on a low hill surrounded by small, swampy wetlands, which made it a likely place to find prehistoric camp sites. When improvements were made to the intersection, an extensive program of archaeological survey and testing was carried out. The project area measured about 100 acres.(DelDoT)

Rathmell Wilson married Martha (Meeteer) Wilson in the 1830s. Martha (Meeteer) Wilson was the daughter of Samuel Meeteer (Meteer, Meter, alt. spellings), who owned the Meeteer Paper Mill on White Clay Creek just north of Newark (later, it became the Curtis Paper Mill). The original deed to the land where the mill stood was granted by William Penn to Thomas Ogle in 1684; it and additional historic deeds are contained in Series X. Additional documents about the mill, the distribution of Samuel Meeteer's estate, and Rathmell and Martha Wilson's interest in it can be found at the Maryland State Archives, in Chancery Court Records. Correspondence to Martha Wilson and accounts of her home, the Oaklands estate, are contained within the Wilson Family Papers. Rathmell and Martha Wilson had three children: Helen Elizabeth "Lizzie" Wilson, Annie M. Wilson, and Edward Rathmell Wilson.


Thomas Ogle first married Mary Crawford who was born in 1671 and died in 1720. OneWorldTree (8) Thomas and Mary Ogle were the parents of eight children.(9) Joseph Ogle, for whom Ogle County, Illinois, was named, was a grandson of Thomas and Mary Ogle.(B)

Ogletown was a small hamlet that grew up around the intersection of the "Great Road from Christiana Bridge to Head of Elk" and England’s Mill Road, now Rts. 4 and 273, where Thomas Ogle had built a house and tavern by 1739. Maps dating to the 1800s show an inn and six or seven houses around the intersection, and by 1868 there was also a school. Besides its long history, the intersection was located on a low hill surrounded by small, swampy wetlands, which made it a likely place to find prehistoric camp sites. When improvements were made to the intersection, an extensive program of archaeological survey and testing was carried out. The project area measured about 100 acres.

The archaeological survey was done by shovel testing, the excavation of 3x3-foot test units, and the surface inspection of plowed fields. A total of twelve archaeological sites were found. Eight of these sites later received more intensive testing, including the excavation of backhoe trenches and more 3x3-foot or 1x1-meter test units. Five of the sites were prehistoric. Datable artifacts found on these sites include artifacts from the Archaic (6500 to 3000 BC) and Woodland I (3000 BC to AD 1000) Periods. Four of the sites were small, temporary camps known as "Procurement Sites," but the Paradise Lane Site was larger and may have been a "Base Camp" where people camped for longer periods. The discovery of this site next to a small swamp suggested to the authors that prehistoric people may have used these small swamps more often and more intensely than archaeologists had thought. Artifacts were found in deeply buried soils at both the Paradise Lane and Dairy Queen Sites, and excavations were later carried out at both these sites (DelDOT Archaeology Series No. 63 and No. 117).


Thomas Ogle House in 1955

The historic sites included the John Ruth Inn Site and several house sites dating to the 1800s. The John Ruth Inn Site included both the remains of an inn shown on maps dating to the 1800s and a possible earlier building that might have been the inn Thomas Ogle built before 1739. Testing was carried out at the location of Thomas Ogle’s house, and some remains were found, including his grave. However, the site had been badly disturbed by road construction and the construction of a gas station on the site. Excavations were later carried out at the John Ruth Inn Site and the A. Temple Site, a farm built around 1850 where the archaeologists found the foundations of a house and the remains of outbuildings and other yard features (DelDOT Archaeology Series No. 77 and No. 81).


Alexander was the youngest of the six children of Thomas Ogle and his second wife, Elizabeth Graham.
(3)

Alexander was born May 21, 1730, and he was baptized in Holy Trinity Lutheran Church near New Castle, Delaware.
(1)

Ogleton, Delaware, near New Castle, Delaware, was named after Thomas Ogle.
(2)

Alexander lost both of his parents to death by age four.
(5) Grandfather and grandmother Graham became his guardians.(6)

At age fifteen Alexander became an apprentice under a wheelwright named David Robinson. At age eighteen Alexander worked under John Springer of Wilmington, where he completed his training at twenty-one years of age.

With the exception of the period 1673-74 when it was reconquered by the Dutch, the area that would become the colony of Delaware remained under English control from the year 1664, when it was conquered by the Duke of York. In 1682, this area was ceded by the Duke to William Penn, the Proprietor of Pennsylvania, who referred to his acquisition as the Three Lower Counties on the Delaware. In the ensuing three years, Penn estimated that over 7,000 immigrants settled in Pennsylvania, a substantial number of whom were English Quakers who would disperse among the Swedish and Dutch inhabitants of New Castle County, the northern-most of the three Delaware counties. These two volumes contain extracts of many of the oldest original records of New Castle County, as found in the court minutes of the Government of The Three Lower Counties on Delaware. Volume I, which was originally published in Volumes 68 and 69 of the Collections of the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania and reprinted by the Colonial Society of Pennsylvania in a very limited edition in 1904, spans the period 1676-1681. The coverage of this volume would appear to be comprehensive for the extant records, inasmuch as it includes abstracts of criminal and civil suits, lists of tithables, records of indenture, the contents of estates, wills and deeds, and more. The smaller second volume, which was published by the Society in 1934, picks up in 1681 and extends to 1699--notwithstanding several gaps in the surviving records. The coverage of Volume II, while less comprehensive, has more of a genealogical focus because it is limited to items "respecting land titles and probate proceedings," the vast number of which demonstrate the existence of blood relationships among the parties. Each volume contains a complete name index to its contents, or 7,500 references overall to what must be regarded as the starting point for researchers concerned with the 17th-century genealogy of New Castle County.

Added by

A marriage record is recorded in the parish book of the Holy Trinity Church
(formerly Old Swedes Church) in New Castle County, Delaware for Thomas Ogle and
Elizabeth Robeson. (Another record for Thomas Ogle and Elizabeth Davis is also
registered in 1764).

According to the note of Dr. Simeon Todd (deceased), "Hercules Ogle, Thomas
Ogle, John Ogle and their sister Lucretia Ogle and husband Abraham Stroud moved
from Delaware to Southwest Virginia in 1763, but stayed only about a year
because Indian troubles drove them out. They moved across the border into
North Carolina."

All these deeds are recorded in Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina. From
Deed Book 6, page 164, "Andrew Smith & wife Anna to Thomas Ogle, groom, for 60
pounds, 320 acres on Cabin Creek on East side of Gunsmith's path," granted 15
July 1760. Recorded 21 July 1764. Tests: George Magsune, William McConnell.

This same 320 acres of land in Rowan County, which Thomas Ogle bought from
Andrew Smith and wife Anna, was divided among his three sons; Thomas Ogle Jr.,
Hercules Ogle, and William Ogle.

18 Feb 1793 Thomas Ogle to Thomas Ogle Jr. 100a
30 July 1793 Thomas Ogle to Hercules Ogle 120a
19 Oct 1795 Thomas Ogle to William Ogle 100a
------
320a

In "North Carolina Genealogy", there are several Rowan County, North Carolina
Tax Lists for 1760's. Only "John Ford's List of Taxables for the Year 1768"
listed Thomas Ogle.

On 23 May 1769, Thomas Ogle of Rowan County, North Carolina sold 67 acres on
Little River, a branch of New River, to William Murphy. This deed was duly
recorded in Augusta County, Virginia.

There is found in "New River Tithables", complied by Mary B. Kegley, the "List
of a W. Herbert - 1772". On this list, Thomas Ogle appears with three
tithables. The three tithables would include himself and two oldest sons,
John and Thomas Ogle.

Thomas Ogle is listed as 1 tithable, no slaves, three horses, 13 cattle and
owning land in the 1782 tax list of Montgomery County, Virginia.

In "Montgomery County, Virginia-Circa 1790", Transcribed and edit by Nettie
Schreiner-Yantis, the "Personal Property Tax List A-1789" gives this
information: "27 Apr 1790-Thomas Ogle with 1 white males-16 years to 21 years,
no slaves, and six horses." The one white male listed above would be the
youngest son, James Ogle.

In Montgomer County, Virginia Survey Book "D", Thomas Ogle bought 140 acres of
land on both sides of Little Reed Island Creek, 27 Nov 1789 from Thomas Black.
This area was part of Grayson County, Virginia when Thomas Ogle died. Today it
is in Carroll County, Virginia.

This was the same land that Thomas Ogle and his wife, Elizabeth deeded to their
youngest son, James Ogle on 10 Jan 1801. The deed was proven in March 1803
after Thomas Ogle's death.

During the 1780's and 1790's, Thomas ogle and his wife Elizabeth were living in
Montgomery County, Virginia; then Wythe County, Virginia, and later Grayson
County, Virginia. At that time, the land that Thomas and Elizabeth Ogle deeded
to Thomas Jr. and Hercules Ogle in 1793, and to William Ogle in 1795 was
located in rowan County, North Carolina. This apparently accounts for the fact
that in his will, Thomas Ogle left only one dollar ($1.00) each to his
children.

Thomas Ogle's will was dated 2 March 1802 and was probated at the March Court
1803 of Grayson County, Virginia. In his will, he mentions his wife Elizabeth
and names his children. There is no land mentioned. Elizabeth is to have all
movable property and each son and daughter is to have one dollar with the
exception of Hannah who is willed one cow.

Thomas Ogle and his wife, Elizabeth, are believed to be buried in the large Ogle Cemetery on Peavine Ridge just outside of Hillsville.

Captain Joseph Ogle Chapter History - DAR
Organized July 07, 2003

Captain Joseph Ogle of whom our Chapter is named was born 17 June 1737 in Maryland, great-grandson to the emigrant, John Ogle of Delaware. Captain Joseph Ogle commanded a company of Virginia troops during the Revolutionary War, holding a commission as captain from Patrick Henry, then Governor of Virginia.

After the American Revolution the Captain came to Illinois from the neighborhood of Wheeling, VA in 1785. He is said to have been the first Methodist in Illinois. The Ogle family moved to New Design and in 1796 made a settlement in the American Bottom, near where the road from Bellefontaine to Cahokia descended the bluff.

Captain Ogle was twice married. His first wife, Drusilla Biggs, had five children and his second wife, Jemima Meiggs/Meeks had four children - most of the children were born in Virginia. Captain Joseph Ogle died 24 February 1821 in New Design, IL.

It was suggested by Governor Thomas Ford that Ogle County be named after Joseph Ogle in honor of his courage and coolness in the siege of Fort Henry in the early days of the country's history. On January 16, 1836 the legislature formed, from a part of Jo Daviess, the county of Ogle, which at the time included the territory of the present county of Lee. The life's journey of Captain Ogle never brought him north into the county of Ogle.
