John Ogden 1700-1780 Mary Osborn 1705-1758


Note: the book mentioned below "Ogden Family etc." relied in part on Gustav Anjou, a liar and a theif who faked many family lines and extorted many thousands of dollars from people looking for family members.  The book claims on page 6 that Gustav claimed personal knowledge of the church records in Bradley Plain, Hampshire, England (which does NOT exist).  Thankfully, more sources were used, such as wills and other documents.
