They resided in and were buried in the town of Holmdel.

The names of their children and grandchildren were obtained from their wills, recorded at Freehold, and from papers, in the possession of Miss Dorset, of Matawan, a sister of Governor Bedle’s mother, the record of most of their births. Miss Dorset has likewise an old Delft bowl, some silver, which has been melted over, and a large cedar chest, which had belonged to some of the first Ogbornes, Perhaps all of these things were bought at the vendue of his aunt Abigail’s effects, following her demise.

1805, May 20. He purchased land from the Trustees of the Baptist Church, of Middletown, probably the present site of Ogborne’s Corners.

1806, May 9. He sold this and other property, extending from his location to Richard Crawford’s Corner, and land at Tinton, for $1,143., to Matthias W. Covenhoven.
