Husband of Lucinda MarcusJames was the son of William G & Hollin Hogue. It's unknown what his mother's maiden name is.

He is first found in the 1850 Murray County, GA Census along with his parents and siblings.

He married Lucinda Pendley/Penley, daughter of Nancy Pendley/Penley, on 12 Mar 1854 in Cherokee County, NC.

Lucinda brought to this union three illegitimate children: George Dallas Estes, Nancy Lucinda Estes (children of James Estes) and William Andrew Pruett (son of William Pruett).

Ten children would be born to this union: Destie, Henry Jackson, James Monroe, Hollie (Hollin), Daniel Washington, Mary Elizabeth, Samuel J, Mary Ann, Vernie L and John Harvey Hogue.

Following their marriage, James and Lucinda would move to Blount Co, TN where they are shown in the 1860 Blount Co Census in the home of his parents. Family listed in this census include: William G Hogue, 67; Hollin Hogue, 61; James L Hogue, 23; Lucinda Hogue, 34; Edista Hogue, 7; Henry Hogue, 5; James Hogue, 3; Hollin Hogue, 1; George D Eustice (Estes), 14; Nancy L Eustice (Estes), 17; & William Eustice (Estes), 10. They would soon return to Cherokee County, NC following this census.

Civil War records reveal James was first recruited into the Confederacy by Captain James Thomas Cooper, Commander of Company H, at age 25, on 23 Jul 1862. He enlisted at Fort Montgomery (present day Robbinsville), Cherokee Co, NC. His enlistment record reflects he was born in Caldwell Co, NC. He stood 5' 11", fair skin, yellow eyes and brown hair. He resided in Cherokee County where he was by occupation a farmer.

He entered as a Private in Company H, 1st Regiment, Thomas' Legion. His term of enlistment was for a period of 3-years or for the duration of the war.

James was reported as present for duty through 31 Dec 1862. He was then reported as absent with out leave in Jan-Feb 1863. He returned to duty on 21 Mar 1863. James deserted in Sevier County, TN on 26 Mar 1863. Shortly thereafter, he moved his family back to Blount County near other family members.

While residing in Blount Co, TN, at age 27, James would enlist in the Union Army on 26 Jul 1864. He was mustered in on 05 Aug 1864 in Loudon County where he was given an advancement of $50.52 and mustered into service on 10 Aug 1864 in Loudon County for a period of 100-days. He served in Company C, 3rd Tennessee Mounted Infantry Regiment.

He was joined by William Monroe Hogue, age 45 and Daniel Washington Hogue, age 39 (his brothers), along with 18-year old Carey Jackson Hogue (his nephew); all four enlisting together and later mustered out together.

He would enter the Union Army as a Private, and would obtain the rank of Ordinance Sergeant by the time he was mustered out.

James and the others were mustered out on 30 Nov 1864 and in a final muster roll dated 22 Dec 1864 in Knoxville, Knox County, TN.

On 16 Apr 1881, James filed for his Union Invalid Soldiers Pension; application #419585, in Graham County.

After James' death, on 03 Apr 1893, his widow, Lucinda would file for her Widows Pension; application #573565, in Graham County. In Jun 1900 she is still living in Stecoah Township. By Apr 1910 Lucinda is found in the home of her daughter, Nancy L (Estes) Hogue in the Trion District of Chattooga Co, Georgia where she died in 1912.

***************************************************

Age Discrepancy: James' headstone reflects he was 62-years of age at the time of his death; but if you use his age as recorded in historical records and in his military records, he would have been 56-years of age.

***************************************************

Six known children were born to Nancy Pendley/Penley: Catherine, Lucinda, Prudence Ellen, Mary Frances, William Alfonzo and John Silvanus Pendley/Penley.

Lucinda's mother, Nancy Pendley/ Penley is said to have married Ellis Dallas Marcus, the presumed widower of Catherine Anthony, although no marriage record has been found to date. Nancy's children would all take the Marcus surname by the time of the 1860 Cherokee Co Census. Nancy, who is by then widowed, is last found in the 1870 Stecoah, Cherokee Co Census in the home of her son John Silvanus (Pendley) Marcus and wife, Julia. Nancy most likely died in Graham County (formed in 1872) and interred in an unmarked grave.

Nancy Pendley/Penley, had moved from Burke Co following the 1840 Census to western North Carolina where she settled in Cherokee Co. She is found there in the Jun 1850 Census. In the home are: Nancy, 50; Catherine, 23; Lucinda, 22; Frances, 13; Alfonzo, 11; John Silvanus Pendley, 7. Also listed in the home are Lucinda's 3-illegitimate children: Nancy L, 13; George D, 5; and William Pendley, 1.

NOTE: Many have hypothesized that James L Hogue was of Native American heritage, even going so far as to indicate he was listed as 1/2 Cherokee on the Dawes Rolls; but this is NOT true, as the Dawes Rolls did not exist until 1898. He, nor his parents ever lived on an Indian Reservation; a prerequisite to being listed on the Dawes Rolls.

WILLIAM HOLLAND THOMAS
THOMAS' LEGION: Any understanding of the record of Thomas' Legion is complicated both by the units development & by its treatment in early studies of North Carolina's Civil War record. The "Legion" seldom operated together and consisted of Cherokee Indians and local mountaineers.

The gensis of Thomas' Legion was a Cherokee unit organized in May 1861. Thomas brought in some 200 Cherokees into the "Junaluska Zouaves" apparently a 2-company battalion for local use. Thomas's Legion was never a "true" Legion.

Lt. Colonel William C. Walker, Commander of Co A, 29th NC Regiment, a close friend and officer under the command of Thomas, resigned on 02 May 1862, citing ill health and an unwillingness to stand for re-election when the unit was reorganized.

All three Calvary company's formerly under the command of Walker underwent major changes. On 14 Nov 1862, Co D went to the 1st Regiment (Carter's) where it became Company I; Co G was transferred to the same Regiment where it became Co H. On 16 Dec 1862, Co F became Co K of the 5th Regiment. The remainder of Walker's battalion stayed dismounted; William B. Loves' Infantry (2nd) became Co D. This was only the beginning of massive changes to the Legions' reorganization; as in Jan 1863, it was again reorganized.
