My Grandfather is Theodore Cogburn. We are living in Oregon, I would love to find out if there is some connection.

One of the northern Arkansas Cogburns, James Cockburn,wife Elzada (lots of different spellings), Dora, was my gggrandfather. My Dad is Marshal, son of John Hamilton. To the Oregon Cogburn's: I have some cousins around Portland area, descendents of John Hamilton's brother, Jason, born 1881. Right offhand can't find a Theodore, but I've heard the name, think it was one of Jason's sons maybe. There are also Cogburn place-names down here in Klamath Falls, a Cogburn lived in Dorris CA south of here, passed away late 90's, and there were some over in Lakeview. The history of KFalls includes the "Cogburn brothers" who lived and worked in Dairy evidently, but I couldn't find anything else about them. Would love to explore this with you all sometime! By the by, my cousin, Alene Knight, daughter of my Aunt Lona Cogburn Robinson, passed away in Feb 2009. Any of her children (daughter's last name Jack) please feel free to contact me!

Surnames: Coggburn, Cramer, Boston
John Jackson Coggburn, b. 9 Feb. 1859, Taney Co., MO, d. 21 Feb. 1910, Boise, Idaho, migrated from Taney Co. abt. 1882 settling first in Malheur Co., Oregon. He probably came west with the Bostons, his in-laws. Abt. 4 yrs later his sister, Ruth "Janie" Coggburn Cramer (my g-g-grandmother), her husband William, & their family also came west, first settling near Vale, Malheur Co. Eventually the Jack Coggburn family, the Will Boston family & Cramers homesteaded on upper Squaw Creek in northern Gem County, Idaho.

There's quite a bit of info on this branch of Coggburns on-line in the White River Valley Historical Quarterly on http://thelibrary.springfield.missouri.org An article by Janice Looney traces the family back to Washington Co., Tenn.

"Ozark Pioneers. Voices of America" series. Arcadia Publishing, Chicago, IL. has additonal history.

A cousin Andy was killed in a Baldnobber confrontation at the Oak Grove Church in Taney Co.
