Greetings from the USA. I am techincally a Shegogue, but am related to the Shegog family. My relative is James Hamilton Shegogue born in 1806. Of Irish decent and originally with the last name of Shegog. James was a painter and found out that the French made more money so he added a "ue" to the end of Shegog and creating Shegogue. This is a little known fact and most art historians still say he is of French decent, but we have found otherwaise through our research.
