Today I posted an updated gedcom, this adds almost 250 new people to the database. The vast majority of of the new people are through my Ogden line. Currently my Ogden line goes back to Matthew Scouten Ogden Sr. b. 1777. Matthew’s parents are reported to be Daniel and Eleanor (Schouten) Ogden, but I have yet to do any research myself on this link. Interestingly if these are in fact his parents, he would have a relatively famous brother by the name of David Ogden, who survived the Cherry Valley Massacre and was taken prisoner by the Iroquois Indians. Some sources say he died while in captivity, but a book written in 2010 reports that not only did he survive but rejoined his family at some point. I have yet to get a copy of the book and read it for myself as I just learned of this book a couple of days ago. If you are interested in obtaining a copy of this book for yourself here is a link to the author’s page Ogden Books. If someone wants to buy a copy for me that would be great!
There is a lot more research to do concerning the Ogden’s and I will likely be posting another update with more info very soon. If you have ties to this family I would love to hear from you. I am also looking for pictures or anything else anyone is willing to share.
