William Hoge
Birth: 1762
Death: Sep. 25, 1814

US Congressman. Born near Hogestown, Pennsylvania, he had little formal education but acquired knowledge of the law through independent study. In 1782 he and his brother John moved to western Pennsylvania and founded the town of Washington, where he would live the rest of his life. He was a member of the State House of Representatives in 1796 and 1797. Hoge was elected as a Republican to the Seventh and Eighth US Congresses, representing Pennsylvania's 10th and 12th Districts, and served from 1801 until his resignation in 1804; John was elected to complete his brother's term and served until March 1805. He then ran successfully for the Tenth Congress and served one term (1807 to 1809) before retiring to his farm near Washington. Originally buried in Washington's Old Graveyard (now defunct), William and John Hoge were reinterred at the new Washington Cemetery in the 1850s. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
