My mother was Etta Bogan from Hazel Valley, Arkansas. We are searching for information on her brother, Earl Lester Bogan b Feb 1892 who was last heard from in the late 40's. Their parents were Claron and Melissa Guinn Bogan.

Wayne Bogan, I too was born in Fayetteville, AR.

Earl Lester Bogan had several children from multiple wives. His oldest child is my grandfather, Jack Bogan who lives in Lemon Cove, California. Jack installed Claron's headstone in Hazel Valley around 2000.

My Grandfather was Harmon Jefferson Bogan. He was from Iowa or near that I think. He married Bessie Telford who also was from that area.
My father was George O. Bogan, he was born near Long Prairie, Minnesota in 1921. In the 1930's when my Dad was 15, the whole family moved out to San Diego, CA.
I was born here and still live here.

Can anyone help me with this family?

Hello to all. My great great grandfather was Charles Bogan. He was born in County Donegal and came to the US in 1844 with his mother Esther, his brother Bernard and his sister Mary. They settled in Newark, New Jersey. Mary married a gentleman by the name of Edward McGeehan and moved to Racine Wisconsin. Bernard moved to Brooklyn NY around 1851 and became very prominent in the Brooklyn Saint Vincent DePaul Society. Charles would become a well known and respected baker in Newark, New Jersey, operating a bakery on Mulberry Street. My Bogan clan got brave in the 1920s, venturing out of Newark to the nearby suburb of Maplewood, New Jersey.

If any of this sounds familiar, you can contact me at

Ashley (Soon to be) Bogan said...

I know many of you born a Bogan are already proud to be so, but I have another reason to be, here in the upstate of South Carolina serveral businesses carry the Bogan name. Bogan's Signs, Bogan's Hunting and Fishing, Bogan's Antiques Auction, and my fiance's grandfather once had a PI service - Bogan's Investigations.
So many reasons to be proud of the family I'm marrying into.

Donegal Reaching Out said...

I came across your webpage while researching what happen to the families who left Tawnawully in Donegal
My name is James Mc Daid and I’m living in Donegal my Facebook page is South West Donegal Reaching Out and I’m looking for people whose families may have connections with (Tawnawully Townawilly various spellings) in the past.

John Bogan and Mary McAndrew who left Donegal for Coatbridge in Scotland and then for America,
John’s father was Thomas a weaver lived in Milltown Tawnawully Donegal he had a least one other son Edward who married Elizabeth Brown in Belfast. I believe most of John and Mary’s twelve children went to US, except two boys Thomas and William who died in the First World War.

I would love to hear about the Bogan’s who are descended from Thomas of Milltown any stories and picture can be put on my FB page or email me at or if you would like to know more about Milltown just ask.

Best Wishes for now
