Sarah Elner Gillespey February 18, 1866. To this union four children
were born--James Andrew, William David, Samuel Cevigna and Carrie
Jane. Of these two survive him--James A. Bogan and Carrie J.

In the year 1872 in a little log school house Thompson Bogan and wife
became members of the United Brethren church. Faithfully they lived and
faithfully they served their Lord and master. The Golden Rule was the
beautiful motto of their lives. They ever lived the Christ compassion
toward their fellow man. This good old couple will long be remembered by
all those who have felt the touch of their pure and upright lives.
