interests of Henry County. He was born in Perquimans County, N. C., March
7, 1808, a son of Josiah and Elizabeth (Wells) Bogue,
natives of North Carolina, his father born in March, 1772. When he was a
child his parents moved to Preble County, Ohio, and settled on an unimproved
farm where he was reared, obtaining his education in the early subscription
schools. He was married in Ohio to Keziah, daughter
of John Stubbs, a native of Georgia, of Scotch descent, who
emigrated of Ohio in an early day. In the spring of 1833 Mr. Bogue moved
to Henry County, Ind., and bought a tract of unimproved land a mile and a half
east of the present site of Spiceland, where by good management and industry he
soon had a good home. He was purely a self-made man; commencing life in
meager circumstances he accumulated a good property. His wife died June
27, 1836. They were the parents of four children; but three are living -- Elizabeth
(deceased), Jane, Josiah P. and John S.
Dec. 23, 1839, Mr. Bogue married Charity, daughter of Benjamin
and Leah (Parker) Bogue, who was born in North Carolina, Sept. 11,
1817, and came with her parents to Indiana in1826. To them were born eight
children -- Calvin W., Anna E., Marietta, Charles,
Emery C., Ignatius S., Ella and Harriet B. Mr.
Bogue died Dec. 25, 1871. He was, as is his wife, a member of the Society
