Birth: Apr. 16, 1768
South Carolina, USA
Death: 1849
Rusk
Cherokee County
Texas, USA

Thomas Blair Hogg was born April 16, 1768 on the Enoree River in the Newberry District of South Carolina. In 1790 he married Martha Chandler and the family moved to Georgia, where he lived when he fought in the War of 1812. He served in the Georgia Legislature before moving to Alabama in 1819, where he also served in their Legislature, before moving to Choctaw County, Mississippi where he was again elected to that state's Legislature. In 1849 at the age of 81 he moved to Texas where they died at the age of 81 and is buried next to his wife in the Hogg Cemetery east of Rusk, Texas in Cherokee County. These are the grandparents of the first native-born Texan to be elected Governor of the state, but there are no markers on his grave, according to Clovis. Shouldn't we mark the grave of the great grandfather of Ima Hogg!
