Frances was found in the 1850 & 1860 census of Guernsey County as Frances Foster living with Evan and Susannah Ogan. In the 1870 census, she is listed as Frances Ogan. Many stories have circulated through the family that she was "left on a doorstep". Her biological parents could have died, or her father died and her mother left her with other families to raise. She could also have been "farmed out" to other families to work for them as reported in a letter by her son, Lester.
Obituary: Mrs. James E. House died at her home at 423 North Eleventh street Thursday morning at 7 o'clock following an illness from a complication of diseases extending over the past several years. During the past several days her condition was regarded as dangerous and it was known by members of the family that she could not live more than a short time. Frances V. Ogan was born in Guernsey County, November 29, 1846. On May 26, 1873, she was united in marriage with James E. House and to this union two daughters and six sons were born. Two sons and one daughter died some time ago. The husband, four sons and one daughter survive. The children are: Florus, John, James, Alva Lester, all of this city, and Mrs. Lloyd Amore, of Roscoe. There are also three step-children, Edward F. House, Mrs. Thomas Ruby and Mrs. Allen Conger who reside in this County, and eighteen grand children. Mrs. House was well known throughout the city and the news of her death brings sorrow to many hearts. Funeral services will be held at the United Brethern church Saturday afternoon at 10:00 o'clock, with Rev. H. H. Davis in charge. Interment will be made in the cemetery at Prairie Chapel.
The couple who raised her were Evan Ogan (Memorial #33394229) and Susannah Fritter Ogan (Memorial #33488260).
