circa 1778He and Mary Tuttle lived circa 1778 at Mount Pleasant, New Jersey.8 
circa 1801He and Mary Tuttle removed to Hunter's Bottom, Gallatin Co., KentuckyG, circa 1801 "The story of this removal is entertainingly told by a descendant of Cornelius Hoagland, Mrs. Delia Ann Hiskey, of Lawrenceville, Ill. She writes under date of May 1, 1889: “ When I was a girl of fifteen years, a great deal of my time was spent with my great grandmother. She entertained me during the long Winter evenings by telling me of their removal from New Jersey to Kentucky. She said my great grandfather came out with his son and deaf brother, and bought land enough for all his children in Hunter's Bottom, Gallatin County, Ky., lying on the banks of the Ohio River. After making the purchase these men went to work immediately to prepare a home for those who were yet to come to them from New Jersey. There was heavily timbered land to clear, fences to make. and a house to build out of logs. This was in the year 1800. The country was sparcely settled then, but the inhabitants were very kind, and offered their services to help them in erecting their house, which was large and convenient. My great grandfather wrote to his wife to come just as soon as the house was ready. She, of course, had made all necessary preparations for the journey, which was, in those days, a long and tiresome one. They came to Pittsburgh in wagons, driving stock and bringing farming utensils and every thing they could not get in the new country. When they reached Pittsburgh they embarked upon flat boats built on purpose for families emigrating West. I cannot remember how long it took to make the journey, but it was several weeks. They landed their boats right near where their home and friends were waiting. Great was the joy when these men were united again with their loved ones. This was in October, 1801. My great grandparents brought nine children from Morristown, N. One was born in Gallatin County, Ky., in 1803. That made ten—five sons and five daughters.... The name of my great grandfather's brother was Okey Hoagland (Holland Dutch). This brother was very wealthy and full of aristocratic pride. He told his brother, Cornelius Hoagland, that if he would take those two deaf people, and keep them their natural life, he would at his death will him all he possessed. Perhaps my great grandfather's getting killed by a falling tree, soon after his settlement in Kentucky, was the reason why his family never received a cent from that uncle. He was married, but childless. But what was said a hundred years ago doesn’t amount to much when we can't prove it."
