Thomas Hogan was the 3rd of 5 sons.
Father: John Hogan
Mother: Catherine Hogan (nee Horan)
Born Lusmagh, Banagher, King's County (now County Offaly), Ireland.
Tom was granted a parcel of land in Taranaki New Plymouth for
partaking in the Maori Wars there.
After his discharge 15-7-1866 at Otahuhu Auckland, the next info we
have of him, is panning for gold in Hokitika Westland, where he lived
until his death on 10-12-1905.
Thomas Hogan never married and had no descendants.
He is buried in the Hokitika cemetry with my grandfather Kieran
Hogan (his youngest brother), and Margaret Hogan my grandmother. The
land in Taranaki was left to my uncle who later sold it.
John Hogan, Tom's older brother fought in the American Civil War,
and Roderick Hogan another brother died at Fort Ambercrombie USA.
