Biography of Joseph Ogden
Owego, Tioga County, NY Biographies





JOSEPH OGDEN came from Orange county to Owego about 1830, driving the entire distance with a team. He bought and lived several years on a farm, but later moved to the village and took up the trade of mason, and was also a watch repairer. His children were Selina, who married with Ambrose Townsend; Jehial, a gunsmith, who lived and died in Owego; Sarah, who married with John Gardner; Walter, Rebecca and Charles. Walter Ogden was a small boy when his father came to Owego, and when old enough was apprenticed to learn the gunsmith's trade, as also were his brothers. Later in life Walter was a merchant and a successful business man. His first wife was Mary Stroup, (of German parentage), by whom he had these children; Mary, who married with Chauncey L. Raymond; Sarah, now dead, and Elizabeth, who married with George Lainhart. His second wife was Harriet Smith, who bore him three children; Fanny, Anna and Walter. Walter Ogden died February 25, 1879. George Lainhart, who on November 17, 1876, married Elizabeth Ogden, was partner in business with Walter Ogden, and was one of Owego's men who was the friend to all its people, and to his wide circle of acquaintance his death was regarded as a personal loss. Mr. Lainhart died in Owego, June 11, 1894.
