Ezell Stogner, c.1785-1848, GA>MS

Ezell Stogner, my paternal 4th great grandfather, was born c. 1785, son of Capt. John Stogner and Martha Blount. Ezell married Martha Pigott (source: Owen, Clint. Liberty County, Georgia Marriages, 1785-1895), the daughter of John Pigott II and Martha Warren, on 24 November 1815 in Liberty County, Georgia.  Martha was born c. 1785 in Liberty County, Georgia.

During the War of 1812, Ezell served under Captain John Cunningham's Company, Georgia Militia from the 23 August 1813 until 05 March 1814 (see bounty land claim filed by his widow).   Between 1814 and 1819, Ezell and his family moved to Marion County, Mississippi.  Family legend states that Ezell and Martha's first child was born in Liberty County and traveled with them, some of the Pigotts and Warrens when they left Georgia.  Ezell Stogner is listed on the 1820 census for Marion County, Mississippi with two males under age 10 (sons John Pigott and Seaborn W.), one male age 16-25 (unknown), one male age 26-44 (Ezell) and one female age 26-44 (Martha).  On the 1830 census of Marion County, Ezell's family had grown to include three more sons and a daughter- Simeon Nathaniel, Thomas Ezell, William Rankin and Martha Rebecca.  By 1840 when the next census was taken, Ezell and Martha were still residents of Marion County and had another daughter, Mary Elizabeth.  Their eldest son, John Pigott Stogner, had married and moved out of their household.  

Ezell died on 26 August 1848 in Marion County, Mississippi.  His wife, Martha, was still living in 1870 as she is listed on the census that year.  The date of her death is presently unknown.

i.   John Pigott Stogner, married Amanda Conerly
