Page 565 – William Hoge had left Scotland when quite a youth, in company with other emigrants, among whom was a family by the name of Hume; the father and mother died at sea, and left a daughter, an only child.
Young Hoge took charge of the young Miss Hume (then a child), and, after arriving in this country, delivered her to the care of a Dr. Johnston, a family connection. In course of time, William Hoge married this Miss Hume, and when Dr. Robert White visited the family of William Hoge, he met, wooed and won their eldest daughter, Margaret Hoge, and here most probably is to be found the true solution of his resignation from the British navy. About the year 1735, William Hoge, then an old man, removed with his children to Frederick County, Virginia (which county was not formed as such until 1738), and was accompanied by Dr. Robert White and his wife and children.
