This is our list of the X most wanted new members. Although any candidate with
the surname Hogg, or any variation of Hogg, or who for any reason thinks that
he might be the paternal descendant of a Hogg is welcome to join the project,
these candidates are identified by us as particularly desirable because they
might answer a specific question. The number X will vary from time to time.
1. a descendant of William Hoge, b.1660, Musselburgh, Scotland through one of
his sons other than William Jr. and John. This data, in combination with the
data from the descendants of his sons William Jr. and John, which we have

2. a descendant of line VA1745 through James Hogg, brother of Capt. Peter Hogg.

to Peter or Thomas.

Burke's Peerage from 1658 to the present that made many contributions to the
4. a descendant of Richard Hogg Sr. b.ca.1717, Gloucester Co. VA through his
son Richard Jr. This data, will prove that Richard Jr. was a son of Richard
Sr., line VA1656 and not from line VA1657 or line VA1658.
