Andrew Boggs Biography

Andrew Boggs, the first settler, died in 1776, leaving a widow and seven children, five sons and two daughters. His wife's maiden name was Margery Harris.

Andrew, the eldest son, left home soon after his father's death, married a Miss Little, of Stone valley, and after some years removed to Ross County, Ohio.

Robert (the judge) was the second son.

Joseph married Catherine, daughter of Richard Malone, and with his brother-in-law, John Gilmore, about the year 1800, moved to Ross County, Ohio, where many of their descendants yet reside.

John, the fourth son, was killed by a dirk-knife in the hands of a Spaniard in Tennessee, and William by an accident at the raising of John Sherrick's barn, near Milesburg.

Nancy married John Gilmore, and Jane married David Elder, and resided on Spruce Creek.

Mrs. Margery Boggs died in 1809 on the place where they settled, and was buried in Milesburg graveyard beside her son, Judge Robert Boggs.
