Correction of the October Puzzler answer

I am grateful for the correction to my answer to one of the questions on the October, 2012 Puzzler.

Here it is:

As a distant relative of  William Butler Ogden, I feel I need to correct some mis-information regarding one of the answers to your questions about him.

a. Ogden, Utah was NOT named in honor of William Butler Ogden. It was named in honor of another relative in the extended Ogden family: Peter Skene Ogden. The father of Peter Skene Ogden (related to the family line of William Butler Ogden), Isaac Ogden, went to Canada during the Revolutionary War because he was a loyalist. Peter Skene Ogden was an early explorer of what is now  Utah.
