Hogan, James, was born in Lewiston, N. Y., August 9, 1857, a son of the late Thomas Hogan. The family removed to Bloomington, Ill., when James was four years old, at which place his father died in 1863. He attended the public and parochial schools at Niagara Falls, whither his mother had removed in 1863, and when eighteen years old left school and began his business career. While going to school, when eight years old, he lost both of his legs by the railroad cars. In 1889 he was elected collector for the village of Suspension Bridge and held that office for two years; in 1893 he was elected supervisor of the Fourth ward of the city of Niagara Falls, and is still an incumbent of that office.
