My great grandfather Ora Virgil POGUE arrived in Indianapolis about 1904 or 1905. He came from Union City, Randolph County, Indiana. He married Minnie Louise Perrin in 1905 in Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana. I found their marriage record and the record for George L. Pogue and Annie B. Dailey in the same book. George and Annie's marriage date is listed as 20 November 1904 (Book 37, Page 183).

In the 1872-1873 Indianapolis City Directory I found the following information about the history of Indianapolis:
Indianapolis was selected as the capital site on 6 January 1821. The new town was situated in the woods, hidden and out of reach. The early pioneers worked by day and fought Indians by night to protect their homes. "Success crowned their efforts, and the little village commenced on the dismal, ever-hated Pogue's Run, where the first murder was committed by the Indians upon the scattered pioneers, has grown steadily, year by year, until today, it numbers 60,000." Was your George Pogue the murder victim?

There is a Whitewater River in Indiana that runs through Randolph, Wayne, Fayette, Franklin and Dearborn Counties. Maybe Whitewater Settlement is in that area. Whitewater Memorial State Park and Whitewater Canal State Historic Site are located near the river.

I have traced my Pogue ancestors to a William Pogue b. abt 1779 in Virginia. I have corresponded with several other Pogue researchers who have reached a dead end about the same time period. So far we haven't made a connection. There are quite a few Pogues in Randolph, Marion and Sullivan Counties in Indiana.

I'm researching my line of Pogues in Marion/Morgan counties (especially Indianapolis), Indiana, from approximately 1819 on. My line is:

- George Pogue (b. around 1770-d. 1820/21) & Cassandra (Cassie Ann) (Payne?) (d. after 1853)
- to Joseph Pogue & Elizabeth Tharpe
- to Israel Hardin Pogue (b.1846) & Mary McCollern
- to George L. Pogue (1882-1935) & Anna Bell Dailey (1885-1974)
- to Robert James Pogue (1903-1991) & Rose Omega Shockley (1904-1990)
- to Robert George Pogue (my dad)

I'm stuck at the first George, who died of foul play in Indianapolis in 1820/21. All I know of him and his wife is that they had been in the 'Whitewater Settlement'(??) prior to settling in Indianapolis and that they may have originally come from North Carolina. He was a blacksmith. They had at least one more son, William, and probably more children.

If you're working on anyone mentioned above I'd love to swap info - I'm interested in all these folks! Also, does anyone know where the 'Whitewater Settlement' might have been? Thanks and good luck to everyone in their researches!
