From the Idaho County Free Press, June 14, 1934 . William was a son of John and Bridget:


William H. Hogan, 70, mining engineer and geologist of the Orogrande district, dropped dead at his apartment in the Flanigan block Sunday afternoon, death being caused by heart disease. His daughter, Mrs. Carl Vermillion, was with him when he died.

Mr. Hogan had been prominent in mining development in the Elk City and Orogrande districts for over forty years. He was an extremely capable metallurgist as well as engineer and geologist. The original Orogrande 20-stamp mill was designed and constructed by him, and he was once credited with having established a record in Idaho for low cost of mining and milling of ore. The great mineralized sheer zone at Orogrande was discovered by him in the early '90s. The present Orogrande-Frisco Company, which took over Hogan's old mine, has adapted his method of ore dressing after exhaustive tests, and the opening of the new mill at Orogrande was anticipated by Mr. Hogan with great interest. It is regrettable that he was not permitted to see this event.

He leaves to mourn his passing, his widow, three daughters, Miss Kathleen and Mrs. Hugh Worthington, who are in Seattle, and Mrs. Carl Vermillion of Orogrande; and three sons, Arthur, Jack and Harold, also of Orogrande.

Funeral services were held at Sts. Peter and Paul church in Grangeville, at 10 o'clock am Tuesday morning, with the Rev. Father J. McBride officiating. Pallbearers were Frank McGrane, James McHugh, J. D. Flanigan, Gus Hoene, Joseph Neis and Al Wagner. Interment was in Prairie View Cemetery .
