Birth: May, 1864
County Galway, Ireland
Death: Jul. 5, 1949
Jersey City
Hudson County
New Jersey, USA

Jane E. Hogan (1864-1949) Gelchion, emigrated from Ireland to the United States between 1876 and 1881. (b. May 1864; Hollygrove, Athleague Parish, Killeroran District, County Galway, Ireland - d. Tuesday, July 5, 1949; Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, USA)

She was married under the Latin version of her name as "Joannam Hogan" in 1886. In 1887 for the birth of her child she uses "Jane Hogan", in 1891 "Anna Hogan", in 1893 "Joanna Hogan". She used "Jane E. Gelchion" in the 1940 census, and she died under the name "Jane Gelchion" in 1949. Her full name may be "Jane Elizabeth Hogan", but that full name has not been found in any documents yet.

Jane was born in Ireland to John Hogan (c1835-c1887) and Winifred Conboy (c1833-c1905).

She was born in May 1864 in Hollygrove, Athleague Parish, Killeroran District, County Galway, Ireland. Her birth certificate should exist, she was born the year that civil registration of births began.

Her siblings include: Bridget Hogan (c1860-?) who married Michael Boyle (c1856-?); Moira Hogan (c1861-?); Michael Hogan (1863-?); Catherine Mary Hogan (1864-1941) aka Mary Hogan, who came to the US and married Thomas Morrissey I (1863-1928), Patrick Hogan (1866-?); Winifred Hogan (c1870-?) who came to US and married John Healy I (c1870-bef1920); and Ann Elizabeth Hogan (c1870-?) who came to US and it is not known if she married. There were other children and more work will have to be done to find the entire set of siblings in the Irish baptismal books.

She migrated from Hollygrove, Athleague Parish, Killeroran District, County Galway, Ireland in 1876 and arrived in New York City. Other sources list her emigration as 1880-1881.

Jane married Martin Matthew Gelchion I (1858-1899) aka Matthew Gelchion, at Saint Paul's Roman Catholic Church at 14 Greenville Avenue in Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, on January 13, 1886. They were listed under their Latin names as: "Matthaeum Gelchion" and "Joannam Hogan".

Their children include: Matthew John Gelchion I (1886-1966) who married Mary E. Sullivan (1890-1967); Mary Catherine Gelchion (1888-1889) who died as infant; Elizabeth Gelchion (1890-?) who married William Henry Haney (1888-1985); Winifred Gelchion (1895-?) aka Winnie Gelchion, who married Joseph Furey I; Jane B. Gelchion (1895-?) aka Jennie Gelchion, who married Patrick Cryan (1894-1961) aka Packy Cryan; and Katherine Gelchion II (1892-?) aka Kitty Gelchion, who married John Morgan.

Katherine McLaughlin's mother was Margaret Agnes Conboy (1866-1951) aka Maggie Conboy, who was Jane Hogan's cousin. In 1920 Jane was living at 64 Rose Avenue, in Jersey City, New Jersey with her daughters, Katherine and Jane, as well as her nephew, John Healy (1898-?).

Memories about Jane E. Hogan:
Robert Bruce Gelchion (1956) wrote on November 4, 2009: "Jane Hogan was my great-grandmother, I believe. She gave birth to my grandfather, Matthew, in 1886, and he fathered my father, John A., in 1918."

Jane E. Hogan (1864-1949) was the first cousin, three times removed of Richard Arthur Norton (1958). She is the great-grandmother of Robert Bruce Gelchion (1956).
