The following is a history of the Sloggy family as transcribed for Grandson Harrison Sloggy before his death.
"History of the Sloggy Family
so far as known
He married a widow named Greer, I think. She had four children, some of them
I have seen.
The late Governor Greer of Iowa was a distant relation of ours. Grandfather
had four children, three girls and one son, Jacob, my father. Three of the girls I have seen,
Mrs Shafer, Mrs. Lint, and Mrs. Mershmer. All lived in New Castle, PA, where I was born.
Grandfather came from a very prominent family in Germany, high up in military circles.
He had one brother, William, who came to America to settle near Grandfathers. He landed in
Baltimore and sent word to Grandpa to come with a
team to take him and his effects out to His place and stated in his letter
that he had a bushel of gold. When Grandpa got there, he found his name
in the Hotel Register and the Landlord said that he had left a few days before. He
was never heard of after. He was murdered for his money.
My mother's name was Mary Sager. I have seen both Grandpa and Grandma Sager.
They were from Bremen, Germany; had a large family, most of them I have seen.
Our own family, you know, consisted of eight boys and five girls, thirteen.
Henry, Lucretia (Mrs. Starn), Peter, Harrison, Samuel, Andrew,
Amanda, Rachel, Martha, Mary Ellen, Elias, James Theodore, Francis Marion.
