John Hoge
Birth: Sep. 10, 1760
Cumberland County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Aug. 4, 1824

US Congressman. Born near Hogestown, Pennsylvania, he served during the Revolutionary War as an ensign in the 9th Pennsylvania Regiment. From 1782 he made his home in the town of Washington, which he and his brother William founded. He was a delegate to the 1790 State Constitutional Convention and a member of the State Senate from 1790 to 1795. When William Hoge resigned from the Eighth US Congress in 1804, John was elected to complete his brother's term and served until March 1805. Originally buried in Washington's Old Graveyard (now defunct), John and William Hoge were reinterred at the new Washington Cemetery in the 1850s.
