David Ogle, born Newcastle, Delaware in 1815; came to the new state of Illinois in 1818 with his parents and his brothers and sister, and died at Harmony Farm west of Belleville, St. Clair Co., Illinois in 1886. Note: son Albert's death record states that David was born in Maryland.
In June 1878 a passport was issued to him and minor son (Albert Ogle) by the State Department, and Margery Ogle says the two traveled to China.
I have now learned that David and 16 year old son Albert, my grandfather, went to France not China! A paper of collected facts about Albert and my father Arthur turned up this year at a later David Ogle's farm in Illinois, and it seems that field glasses used during their tour of France were given the new Lieut. Arthur Ogle before he left for France in 1917.
