Notes for Eliza Low
Notes for Andrew W. (Spouse 1)
One year after Joel died, one of Joel’s sons, Andrew (age 11), migrated with an uncle to the new state of Illinois, settling in McLean County. He became a successful farmer and wound up owning a sizable amount of land.4 Some of this land he later developed, and some was donated to create Scogin Hills Cemetery (note the spelling). Andrew died in 1888, without a will. He was survived by six children, namely Lee, Jay, John, Frank, Hattie and Joseph. Most of his farm implements were sold in an estate sale, and records of this sale are located in the Probate Court for McLean County. 37

Notes for Andrew W. (Spouse 1)
Andrew W Scogin rounded up a groupof men and joined the army during the Civil War. Because of his work with the men he was made Captain and was awarded a section of land after his three month stint in the army. Some of the men could only leave their business for three months, some for six months. He owned this government granted section of land in Bloomington, Illinois, at Six Points, and as he needed money, it is reported that he sold off the land until it was down to 7 acres. Some word was that "he drank up the section of land." Quotes from Oley (Iola) Scogin, his grandson: "He owned the whole d---- country around there (McLean County?) 1200 acres, and they'd just let the hogs run wild and breed. Then they would round up a bunch of hogs and just drive them over land into Chicago and sell them -- fording streams as there were no bridges, no fences. That's the way he marketed his hogs." He rode his pet white mule everywhere he went. He donated the land for the Scogin Cemetery at Bloomington, Illinois. Originally he had homesteaded the land. " After the war he was given the section, mentioned above. McLean County history records Andrew W. Scogin "was seriously affected by a stroke of paralysis which greatly interfered with his former busy and energetic life."
Notes for Andrew W. (Spouse 1)
When he was fourteen years of age, he came with his uncle, Joseph Wakefield, to McLean County, Illinois. Mr. Wakefield bought one hundred and eighty acres of land at Randolph's Grove, built a log house on it, and allowed young Andrew to work to his heart's content. 62
