1914:  From History of Grundy Count, p. 827:

HOGE, Albert E., was born in Nettle Creek Township, Grundy County, February 2, 1840, a son of William and Rachel (Bowls), Hoge.  His father was born in Fauquier County, Va., and his mother in Loudoun County, same state.  Their marriage took place October 26, 1826, and they immediately removed to Illinois coming overland in a carriage and a prairie schooner drawn by horses.  They made their home in Nettle Creek Township and preempted land there that he had previously located.  Here they lived at first in a dug-out, but later a spacious log cabin was erected, being one of the very first houses to be built in Grundy County.  William Hoge continued adding to his property until he owned over 3000 acres of Illinois land, both timber and prairie.  In 1843 his wife died and he never married again, his daughter keeping house for him.  In 1845 he constructed a fine frame house to be used in place of the log cabin, and this residence is still standing.  Many of the local offices of public trust were filled by him, and though he was not a member of any church, he was a sincere, honest and upright man.  In business he was capable and, for those pioneer days when a two days’ drive was necessary to reach Chicago, the nearest market, his success was remarkable.  He died June 22, 1884, and when he was taken from them the community lost an estimable man.  To him and his wife nine children were born:  Mary E., born in Virginia, widow of Abraham Holderman of Morris, Ill.; Emily E., Mrs. George Bishop of Chicago; Anna G., widow of Joshua Greeg of Council Bluffs, Iowa; Joshua, deceased; James B., deceased; Hendly, killed in the Union army at the battle of Franklin, Tenn.; William, living at Morris; Albert E.; and Alcinda B., of Morris, widow of Dr. E. Ridgeway.

Albert E. Hoge, after the death of his father, came into possession of the old homestead, to which he has added so materially that he now owns over 1000 acres in Nettle Creek Township.  In 1834 the first schoolhouse in the county was built on his property.  This old building is still standing and, though decaying fast, is an interesting relic of former days.  Up to the time when he became twenty years of age, he attended school in this building.  From that time on he was engaged in active farming and stock raising to very good advantage.  Since 1902 he has not done much actual farm work himself, has rented practically all of his land but keeps a strict personal supervision over it.

From the FindAGrave.com web site:

Born at Rector's Crossroads, he was the son of Joshua Hoge and his wife Mary Pool. William spent his childhood in Virginia. At the age of 26, he married Rachel Bowles. In 1829, he came west with his father to find land to settle. With $2000.00 he was given by his father, he was able to purchase a significant amount of property to be shared among the family. He was allowed to choose the portion he wanted, and then returned home to bring his family. The family endured some hardships, including having to leave their land when the Sac war occurred, but they persevered and became very sucessful. William lost his wife in childbirth in 1843 and would never remarry. Together they had had 15 children who's needs had become his paramount concern. He spent the remainder of his life devoted to his family and business and ultimately became one of the most prosperous businessmen in the area. He was well respected and admired.

Hoge was orginally buried in the Hoge-Holderman Cemetery. He was moved to Evergreen later by family
