My grandmother was Marie Hogarth. She is the daughter of Joseph Hogarth and Julie Ferrer,grand daughter of John and Marie Eliza Chanlatte, one of 9 nine children. Maurice Hogarth is her brother. I know one brother, Marcel Hogarth left Haiti in 1903 and ended up settling in Chattanooga,Tennessee. He is one of the ancestors I am pursing as he was the brother of my grandmother and my mother visited him in Tennessee before she came to the US for good.

I always heard he had a daughter. I would like to let her know we exist. Marcel made one last trip to Haiti. There is a famous family photo of that trip in 1950's. Any information about him would be welcome. His children might not have information about his origins and might want to know.
