Charles Patterson Hogue, Civil War Soldier

1844 - 1931

 

 

Charles was born 26 Feb 1844 in Hopewell Twp., PA, the son of James Patterson and Sarah (Sunderland) Hogue.  His parents were also natives of the Keystone State.  His family moved to Sparta, Monroe Co. WI in 1853.  While living in Sparta, WI, Charles enlisted as a Pvt. with Co H, 10th Inf. Wis., and was later promoted to Full Cpl. He transferred into Co E, 21st Wis. Inf., 10 Oct 1861 and then into the 3rd Wis. Inf., 8 Jun 1865. He was honorably discharged July 18, 1865.  Three years later, he married Nellie Matilda Potter, 20 Apr 1868.  She was born 4 Apr 1847 in Union Twp., Rock Co., WI.

 

Eventful Happenings mentioned in "Greenwood, Hub of Clark Co. WI"

 

The Indians were friendly and did not disturb the early settlers, though many were afraid of them as the following story will prove. In 1873 Charles Hogue lived about six miles northeast of Greenwood on what was later known as the Lloyd farm. One day when Mrs. Hogue and her two small children were home alone she heard a noise at the door. When she opened it, there stood an Indian with bloody hands. She was so frightened that she grabbed the baby (Oscar) and pretended she was going to get some wood, picked up Harry, who was in the yard, and ran with the two children through the clearing into the woods to the nearest neighbor about two miles away. The Indian called to her as she ran which only frightened her more. She remained there until evening when the neighbor (who was a grandfather of Sena Hanson) fired his gun several times, and Mr. Hogue, returning home about this time knew it was a signal, and went there, found his family and brought them home. Later this Indian told Mr. Hogue that he had killed a deer in the edge of the clearing and wanted to trade part of the meat for groceries, and that he realized Mrs. Hogue was frightened and called to reassure her.

 

While "shooting the rapids" at the "Rips" in a boat, Charles Hogue (who was at time considered the best boatman on the river) was upset into it. He was under so long the men said: "Well, I guess Charley is gone this time", but he finally came up quite a ways down the river under the boat but managed to get out and reach shore safely.

 

On June 6,1871, William Welsch, with the assistance of Frank Brown, Charles Hogue, and Oscar Nutting surveyed and platted the village of Greenwood.

 

The Hogues were some of Greenwood’s earliest pioneers and their son, Harry was a charter member of the St. Mary’s Parish.

 

The Hogues were the parents of: Harry (b. 1869), Oscar (b. 1872), William (b. 1874), Pearl (b. 1876, m. Simerson), Ray Everett (b. 1878), Stella (m. O’Conner), Nellie M. (m. Buhite), Ethel (m. Tripp) and Dellame.  Charles died 24 Feb 1931 and is buried in the Greenwood, WI City Cemetery.  Nellie Matilda passed away at her home, 771 E. Belmont St., Portland, OR, 11 Jul 1930.

Charter members of St. Mary’s Catholic Parish at Greenwood were honored at the church’s new grade school’s grand opening last Thursday evening.  Only two of the three living charter members could be present, Mrs. Anna Volk and Mrs. Harry Hogue, both of Greenwood.  Mr. Hogue, the third living charter member, was ill and unable to be present.
