Dates of existence


Peter Skene Ogden was born in Quebec in 1790 to parents Isaac Ogden and Sarah Hanson. Father Isaac was a judge in the Admiralty Court in Quebec and a member of the United Empire Loyalists in Canada. Both Isaac and Sarah were born in the United States. Peter Skene Ogden had a total of 8 children from 2 "country marriages;" the first to a Cree woman and the second to Julia Rivet, a member of the Spokane peoples. Among these children was his son, Peter Ogden (1817-1870), who followed in his father's footsteps and was also an employee of the Hudson's Bay Company. Ogden's daughter, Sarah Julia Ogden, married Archibald McKinlay (1811-1919), another Hudson's Bay Company employee.
