And I happen to have an almost 200 year-old convertible sofa that family legend -- perhaps Tim can verify -- claims was once owned by Aaron Ogden. I have some interesting pictures of it that may see the light of day at some point.

He is indeed. I find them in the Ogden Family Genealogy on page 129. Moses Ogden, who married Mehitable Rider, was the son of Joseph Ogden (July 1, 1763 - May 6th 1817) and his first wife Comfort Price.

Joseph Ogden's grandparents were Samuel Ogden, Jr. (1714-Feb 20 1775)and Hannah Hatfield (1723-1782), whose parents are also my direct ancestors through the marriage of her sister Phebe Hatfield to my ancestor Robert Ogden.

Samuel Ogden Sr. (1678-1715) was the son of my ancestor Jonathan Ogden (1639-1732), whose father was the Ogden patriarch John Ogden, one of the original proprietors of Elizabeth NJ.

Best wishes with your research. Tim

I have a person in my family tree named Mahitable Rider, who married Moses Ogden.
Mahitable was born probably in the late 1790s.
Is this Moses Ogden connected with your Ogdens?
