    Seeking a planter in West Indies named Pogy/Pogie

    Jim Rice Wayfarer

      Hello - I am seeking information regarding an early 19th c. planter on St. Croix or St. Thomas. His surname is Pogy or Pogie. I have found court records where several of his vessels were seized - but nothing else. His daughter, Mary Pogy, attended Madame Rivardi's boarding school in Philadelphia as an "orphan." She married Alexander Cardon de Sandrans in Delaware (1817). After years of litigation she recovered a small portion of the family fortune to which she was entitled. If someone knows the background of her father, the planter, please respond.
