_____________________________________________
Per Robert Alvyn Sapp, April 24, 1999, Nancy Ann Ogden was born on November 18, 1747, in Charles County, Maryland.

Also per Robert Alvyn Sapp is the following:

      "Jonathan took an oath of allegiance March 1778 in Charles County, Maryland. He made a will August 13, 1807, in Harrison County, Virginia (now West Virginia). Will Book 1, p. 373-374, April 1808.
      Jonathan Ogden probably lived a simple life of growing tobacco in Charles County. During the Colonial Period, Charles County was a large exporter of tobacco to England through the port city, Port Tobacco. The earliest record found of Jonathan is the Census of Charles County taken at the request of the Maryland Legislature. The census required a listing of all males 18 years and older and was recorded in March 1778, Court of Charles County. At the same time of the census, Jonathan gave an oath of allegiance to the State of Maryland that is recorded in the same court action. In the Port Tobacco East Hundred District Census, Jonathan is enumerated along with Thomas Ogden.
      Jonathan's Revolutionary War service was as a private in the Maryland Militia of the Continental Army, 1777, Capt. Benj. Cawood Company, Charles County, 26th Battalion.
      Jonathan leased land from James Middleton in Charles county for a period of at least from 1787 to 1793 as noted in the Middleton estate inventory. The inventory was recorded in the February, 1795 Charles County Court. The rent was paid in part by currency and in part by tobacco. The rent for the year 1793 was 1400 pounds of neat tobacco.
      At the time that Jonathan was living in Charles county, Maryland, there were several other Ogdens living in the county. In the Maryland Census of 1775-1778 Jonathan Ogden and a Thomas Ogden lived in Port Tobacco, East Hundred. Joseph Ogden, Benjamin Ogden, Henry Ogden and William Ogden lived in other parts of Charles County. In the 1790 US Census, only Jonathan and Benjamin Ogden are enumerated in Charles County.
      Jonathan moved with his family to Harrison County, Virginia, about 1804 when he acquired land in Harrison County. He is shown with a family of 5 males and 6 females in the 1790 Maryland US Census. Jonathan, his son Thomas and son-in-law Jeremiah Robey are listed in the 1800 Maryland Census, Charles county, and his son Rode is shown in Prince George's County Census.
      Jonathan and his son Thomas purchased a tract of land of 100 acres in Harrison County, Virginia, in February 1804, from Andrew and Lydia Snyder for 100 dollars. The land was on the east side of the West Fork above the mouth of Snyder's Run."
