Burial:

I checked the UCC church here in Delaware twp, where Find A Grave shows a listing for John Hoagland, born 1817.  I can not find his stone - but there are stones missing here, and the records on find a grave are from the church records.  There are no other Hoaglands there that I can find.

Next I checked the Turbotville Cemetery, but there is no listing for any Hoaglands buried there, and since it was easy to check, I checked the Warrior Run cemetery - again, no listings for Hoagland/Hogland/Houghland, or any variation thereof.


Research:

Although many researchers and local histories list Margaret's last name as Roth, it appears clearly as Houghland in her childrens death certificates.

Margaret, wife of Eli Welsh, has Abraham & Rebecca listed on her death certificate.

"Leonard Whitmoyer, farmer in Marion Township, is a native of Columbia County, Pennsylvania.  In April, 1861, he enlisted in the army for three months' service and afterward re-enlisted, remaining in the service until the war closed in 1865.  He was an excellent soldier and participated in a large number of battles.  At the battle of Chancellorsville he received a gun-shot wound in the leg. In August, 1865, he was married at Davenport, Iowa.  In the fall of 1870 they removed from Iowa to Charlevoix County and located on Section 9 in the town of Marion. Mrs. Whitmoyer taught school for several terms walking to and from her school, a distance of several miles, each day.  She was an excellent teacher and a woman of great force of character.  They improved their land, living in their primitive log house until 1888, when they built their present frame dwelling, which is one of the finest farm houses in the county.  Mr. Whitmoyer has about thirty acres under improvement, and also owns one hundred and sixty acres of land in another locality.  He is an enterprising citizen and takes an active interest in all matters of general progress."

-------------------------------------------------
Madison Township, the most westerly township in Columbia County, is noted as the only one which is partially drained by the headwaters of Chillisquaque Creek. The "Divide," a sharp ridge, separates this stream from the waters of Little Fishing Creek. At the corner in the northwestern end of Madison Township, where Columbia, Lycoming and Montour Counties meet, is the site of an old Indian town, and the trail from the West Branch to Nescopeck crossed the "divide" just above the village of Jerseytown.
In the year 1776 the Whitmoyers, Billhimes and Wellivers came to this section from New Jersey.

In the year 1776 the Whitmoyers, Billhimes and Wellivers came to this section from New Jersey. Michael Billhime located on Muddy run, where he built a cabin and cleared six acres of land. Daniel Welliver selected a place on Whetstone run, an affluent of Little Fishing creek. The Whitmoyers settled a short distance west of Jerseytown. When the Indian outrages induced the settlers to take refuge in the forts, the Whitmoyers remained. In March, 1780, some of the men went to a sugar camp, leaving several of the women and a few men at home. A son returning the following morning for a forgotten utensil found the whole family dead and scalped. Fearing for his life he fled to Fort Augusta. The next day a party of rangers returned to the spot and buried the bodies. The graves are on the road from Jerseytown to Washingtonville.

" Our ancestors are of English decent, and have been traced as far back as the tenth century. Having fought under Cromwell, they were compelled to flee from England when Charles II ascended the throne. They embarked in fishing smacks and sailed to Amsterdam, Holland, about 1660. 
" In the year 1720, they came to America and landed on Long Island at Graves End. My great-grandfather and his two brothers were among this party of emigrants. Just prior to the Revolutionary War they moved from Long Island to Bound Brook in New Jersey, and later on settled near Philadelphia. The three persons previously mentioned, then separated and settled in different parts. One settled at Berwick, PA, another named Peter settled above Danville, PA, near Jerseytown, where Jerseytown now is, and was killed by the Indians in 1780. Where the third brother settled in unknown to me.
" Concerning the brother who settled near Jerseytown, we have the following account of his violent death given in the History of Columbia and Montour Counties, on page 264. In the year 1775 this family, with two others, the Billhimes and Wellivers, made their appearance at the headwaters of the Chillisquaque. All came from the region in New Jersey on the opposite side of the Delaware from Northampton County. In their journey, they crossed eastern Pennsylvania to Harris' Ferry and followed the Susquehanna and "Frozen Duck" to the Jerseytown valley. Michael Billhime located on Muddy Run, where he built a cabin and cleared six acres of land. Daniel Welliver fixed his residence on Whetstone Run, an affluent of Little Fishing Creek. The Whitmoyers settled a short distance west of Jerseytown.
" The dangers incident to frontier life were early realized by the Billhimes and Wellivers, who retired to a place of greater security, but the unfortunate Whitmoyer family remained, thinking the Indians would not disturb them. But not so, for on a morning in the month of March 1780, a band of savages came to the ranch of the Whitmoyer family, broke in the door and killed old Mr. and Mrs. Whitmoyer and took the children (4) captive. The eldest son being out to the sugar camp (where they made maple syrup), escaped, and when he returned to cabin and found his parents lying dead and the rest of the children gone, he then ran to Fort Augusta and gave the alarm and the Pennsylvania Rangers hastened to the cabin and buried the dead. On the road to Washingtonville, their graves are still pointed out.
" The remaining four children the Indians took with them to York State, and were kept there by them until after the Revolutionary War, when they were liberated and settled there, and many of their descendants still live there. John Whitmoyer, one of the decedents, visited me a few years ago and said that the above history was correct concerning his ancestors.
" My great grandfather had two sons, David and Conrad, and one daughterwho married at Bortz and settled at Reading.  David settled near Berwick and had three sons, George, William, and David, and two daughters, one married a Ruckle and the other a Detrick. The sons, George, William and Davidremained at Summer Hill near Berwick.  George had seven sons and five daughters, viz: David, lived at Espy; Charles and Samuel, Joseph and Henry, Eliza and Daniel. The girls married and lived at different places. Katherine, that married a Detrick, had a son who became a lawyer and afterwards a judge at Williamsport, PA.
" William had four sons, three of whom are Isaac, Daniel and Hiram that settled around Berwick.
" All of the children of William and George are now dead except Daniel.
" Conrad, the other son of great grandfather's and our grandfather, settled in Lycoming County, near where Pine Summit now is, and was married twice. He had fifteen children in all, namely, Polly, Katey, Mary, John, David, Lydia, Joseph, William, Simon, Michael, Betsy, Ely, Susan, Adam and Evy Anne.
" Simon, my father, who settled where I now live was a blacksmith by trade and built probably the first blacksmith shop in that section of the country. He had seven children of which I am one, six boys and one girl, viz: Leonard, who settled at Charleviox, Mich.; Michael, who was a lawyer, also Colonel of the Army of the Rebellion, settled at Columbus, Neb.; Clark, at Davenport, Ia.;Richard, at the old homestead near Pine Summit, Columbia County, PA;RebeccaGaylordAmos, all now dead except his youngest one Amos, who is now with us this summer of 1925."

From Floyds -
" The Moser family now well known in the northern portion of Northumberland county is descended from Peter Moser, a native of Berks county, Pa., who in 1838 came to Derry township, then in Northumberland county, but now included in Montour county. He had considerable land and was a lifelong farmer, being succeeded on his home place by his son-in-law, Gideon Dietrich.
