Biography of John Bogue
Oswego County, NY Biographies





Bogue, John, was born in County Armagh, Ireland, in 1839. His father, James Bogue, came to Montreal in 1846, with his wife, who was Lucy Lavelle, and their children. Three years later they came to Fulton. James Bogue was by trade a millwright and carpenter, and although a very modest and reserved man, was widely known as a master workman. He was long a trusted employee of Duryea & Co., both here and at Glen Cove, and foreman for various large contractors upon works of magnitude in the North and West. John Brogue has been a resident of Fulton since six years of age, and having learned the mason's trade has acquired a competence by its practice. He laid the first stone of the magnificent Presbyterian church just completed, and the last brick also, having become famous for fearless scaling of lofty spires and stacks. In Oswego, August 15, 1859, Mr. Bogue married Anna Cummins, who is also of Irish birth, emigrating to America in 1849 at the age of seventeen years. Her living children are Henry, Frances, Annie E., Winifred, James W., and William J. One daughter, Mary F., died in 1864 at the age of three years. The children are very proficient in music as professionals and teachers, one daughter being a graduate of the Boston Conservatory.
