John Ogden, the Pilgrim (1609-1682): A Man of More Than Ordinary Mark
"No accurate information has been previously published about John Ogden's earliest years in England. A one-hundred-year-old genealogical study on the Ogden family in America - which has served as the foundation for much of our information about the man - is inaccurate. Using both direct and inferential information, Jack Harpster has recreated that early time, providing the first-ever look at the ancestral home of the Ogdens and how they came to immigrate to America. Harpster has also delved deep into early colonial records to discuss the Ogden family s life and times in America during the mid to late 1600s. The story is highlighted by many colorful incidents and descriptions, often told in the words on contemporary colonial Americans."--Jacket.
