He established a one-man plantation in the 1830's. The land later encompassed much of the town of Hogansville. In 1849, Hogan ceded the right-of-way to the Atlanta and West Point Railroad. He stipulat- ed that a depot be built where the railroad crossed the Augusta highway. Hogan's efforts to stimulate the local economy were furthered by his son-in-law, John PuUen. After Hogan's death in 1861, Pullen sold the Hogan's land in lots divided for business and res- idential use. The town chartered in 1870. The charter was amended on August 12, 1919 to establish the City of Hogansville. Hogan was married twice. He was married to Mary Elizabeth until her death in 1837. They had four children: Sarah, Frances, Elizabeth and Mary Ann. Hogan married Susannah after Mary Elizabeth's death. She lived until 1906. They had four- teen children: Martha J., Christopher, Minerva, Susannah M., William, Jr., Amanda V., Rebecca R., Nancy, Georgia, Virginia, Columbus, Shadrach, Minnie J. and John A. Moss said the original Hogan home burned in 1899 and was rebuilt on almost the exact same spot in 1901 by granddaughter Eugenia Pulliam Word. Fan Moss said she and her brother, Claude, was born in what is known as the Hogan-Arnold home located at 804 East Main Street. Her father and mother raised eight children in that home.
