Daniel Hogan
Stefan Bielinski

Daniel Hogan was born in March 1695. He was the son of Irish -born Albany innkeeper William Hogan and his wife, Martina Becker Hogan.

Like his father, he became a resident of Albany's first ward. He belonged to an Albany militia company, served as constable and then high constable. In 1724, he was elected assistant alderman for the first ward.

Daniel Hogan probably did not marry. However, he may have fathered Rachel Beekman's illegitimate daughter who was baptized on October 3, 1730. Daniel Hogan's child was buried from the Albany Dutch church in January 1732. In September of that year, he was named heir and co-executor of the joint will filed by his parents.
