  1. I am searching for the ancestor of Ogborn Branch of colonial Virginia. He is found in records of Southampton VIrginia in the early 1700’s. I is my belief that his ancestor was Simon Ogborn.
    Do you have any clues to this mystery? Do you have any clue as to and Ogburn daughter that married a Branch. I found many records of Ogborn Branch in the Brantley Association website which has digitized Southamton Virginia records.
