I am attempting to locate any information regarding Jonathan Cohagan. He was born in Virginia and married to Martha ? in Illinois. He had four children Thomas Newton, Lilly, Susan and Harding Grant. Thomas and Harding settled in central Texas. I would be grateful for any infromation and willing to share the information I have found.

Check out a User Home Page for the ancestors of Susan Grace Luman. I think you'll find something about Cohagan's in Generation 8. Go to Familytreemaker.com and do a search for Thomas Cohagan. Good Luck. JBailey

My grandmother was Ethel Mae Cohagen - She married Jack B. Whigham in Coryell County, Texas. She had brothers - Frank and Jesse
That's about all I know. My father was born at home in Leon Junction near Gatesville, Texas. You can contact me at dinak@skybiz.com

Jonathan and Lydia Cohagan

Jonathan Cohagan, d. Aug. 7, 1897 (77Y.7M.16D on cemetery stone. Lydia, wife of J. Cohagan, d. Sep. 12, 1904 (81Y.6M.23D.) Buried Wesley Chapel Cemetery, Davis Co., Iowa. They raised my g grandmother, Barbara Burdett. Her mother's estate papers in the courthouse in Bloomfield, IA include a document signed by a Thomas Cohagan. They were farmers. Old postcards indicate that one of the Cohagan sons was involved in a rodeo-type event and traveled to places which included Oklahoma. I think the community northwest of Bloomfield where they lived was called Ash Grove, IA, now only a crossroads. Although not a match with your data, I thought this inf. could be related. If so, please reply because it would be nice to "thank" the Cohagans.

My great grandfather was the Jonathan Cohagan you are looking for. His wife was Lydia Mitzell. Both are buried in Wesley Chapel Cemetery, in Marion,,Iowa. I have complied a significant amount of family history on the Cohagan's, but have not found any information concerning a Barbara Burdett. Would be interested in how she is tied into the Cohagan line

Thanks. Leaha (Cohagan) Young

So glad to find you. Wesley Chapel Cemetery is in Davis Co., northwest of Bloomfield, Iowa. Marion is a suburb of Cedar Rapids, several miles north. I have visited Wesley Chapel. When Barbara's parents died, Jonathan and Lydia "took in" Barbara as part of the family. She considered their sons as her brothers. I wanted to find the family to thank them. I am Barbara's great grand daughter. I have a photo of Barbara and some of the Cohagan brothers in their older years. Also, I took a photo of J. and L.'s tombstone in case I found a Cohagan who would like a copy. If interested, post your email address, and I will connect with you. If not, please accept my family's gratitude. Finding a Cohagan was on my list of "unfinished business."

i have been researching the cohagan family for about twenty years. I am from the line of michael cohagan; son of ambrose gaughan. i have been gathering information on jonathan and lydia cohagan for several years. i just made their connection to several cohagans in the states you mentioned. most of my information is from loudoun,va. and their life in morgan co.,ohio. i would be thrilled to have a copy of the picture of cohagan brothers and the tombstone of jonathan and lydia. i am getting close to having the information to complete their family for my research. pictures are like finding gold for a genealogist. I would like to include them in that research.I would like to know more on barbara,your great grandmother.stories about families make their lives become real to those who follow in the future.bratpac2001@prodigy.net

Surnames: Cohagan, Bush
I also am related to Jonathan and Lydia Mitzel Cohagan. Their son George Cohagan and his wife Milbry (Renny) daughter Mary Florence Cohagan & Elmer Bush was the parents of my Grandfather Marion R. Bush. I do not know if George and Milbry had more children or anything about them. I have very little on the Cohagan's and would love to get more information and hear stories about their family.
