Word has just been received of the death of John Hogan, of Parkersburg, W.Va., aged 79 years.
When a boy John Hogan lived with Mrs. John H. Peck in the house now occupied by the Ethan Allen Club.at Burlington and was well known among the young people of that date. October 4, 1861, he enlisted as wagoner in Company A, 1st vt. Cav., and was taken prison May 24, 1862; paroled June 1, 1862, and discharged for disability. He won for himself a good record.
At the close of the war he went to Oil City, Pa., and later removed to Parkersburg where he became one of that city's representative citizens, for no resident was better known or more highly esteemed.
During his long career Mr. Hogan was identified with many enterprises, and was always ready go give his support to the city's best interests. For many years he served as a justice of the peace and later as city police judge. An editorial in one of Parkersburg papers states: "He was straight and stalwart in figure, straight and stalwart in character and straight and stalwart in his living." A man of great heart, of generous acts, and of genial personality he has left a heritage that will long e cherished in the memory of his legion of friends.
