Cumberland County

Death: Oct. 23, 1894

Abraham Owen Hogbin, son of Abraham and Theodotia Hogbin, paid a brother $50.00 to go into service for him. This was the Civil War. This was a common practice at that time.
Abraham Owen came to Kansas in 1869. He left his pregnant wife, Sarah, in New Jersey. She came to Kansas in 1870 on a train. He worked for the Santa Fe Railroad and helped build the first bridge across the Kansas River into Topeka. He worked on the branch from Burlingame to Topeka. He homesteaded between Alma and McFarland, Kansas. He was working for the railroad, not the strip but close by. The family moved to Oklahoma in February 1893. The whole family went in a box car. The railroad officials knew nothing of their being in the car. There were five children, Robert, Orlando, Ruth, Ike and Theodotia. They lived in a dugout in the side of a hill. Abraham was farming new Mulhall, Oklahoma when he got bloodpoising in his heel and died on October 23, 1893. After his death the family returned to Kansas, in March 1894, the same as they had gone out, in a box car. They returned to Eskridge, Kansas where they had left the year before.
