Biographical / Historical Note

The Reverend Daniel Rogan, Jr. was born in 1806. His father was an Irish immigrant who brought his family to the area in 1816.  Daniel Rogan Sr. worked as a surveyor, and the survey papers in the collection likely belonged to him. Daniel Rogan Jr. became a Presbyterian minister, preaching at churches throughout SullivanCountyincluding Kingsport Presbyterian Church where he served as pastor for several years, dying in 1881. Much of this information was obtained from the book Kingsport Heritage: The Early Years: 1700-1900 by Muriel Miller Clark Spoden (Spoden Associates, Kingsport TN, 1991).



The Reverend Daniel Rogan, Jr. and Family collection contains correspondence, sermons, church related documents, and other papers created by or belonging to Rogan and his family in the years 1829-1921.  The family lived in the Sullivan County of Tennessee area except for Carl Rogan who wrote home from Arizonain the early 1920s. Collection materials relate mostly to Rev. Daniel Rogan Jr., but also to Daniel Rogan Sr., Griffith Rogan, Carl Rogan, and Mary Rogan.  Additionally, the Reverend Samuel Doak is mentioned as well as some locally famous families.
