Rev. Isaac Gray OGDEN, son of Jonathan OGDEN and wife Anastasia, was descended from John OGDEN, who came to this country from England and settled on Long Island in 1640. Rev. Isaac Ogden graduated from Williams College with Phi Beta Kappa rank in the Class of 1849. He married Emma HUNTINGTON.

After teaching several years at Binghamton [Broome County, NY] and Sand Lake [Rensselaer County, NY], he studied theology at Andover and was ordained by Presbytery in 1858. He served several churches in the State of New York, and after retiring from the active work of the ministry in 1892, he spent some years in Troy [Rensselaer County, NY] and New York City. He ended his long and useful life at Devon, Pennsylvania, on 28 November 1904.
