John Rogan Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

John William "Bud" Rogan (c. 1865-68 – September 12, 1905) is one of 17 known people in medical history to reach a height of 8 feet (2.44 m) or more and also the second tallest person ever recorded, after Robert Wadlow. Rogan, the son of William Rogan, a former slave, was born in Sumner County, Tennessee, between 1865 and 1868. He was the fourth of twelve children. His mother might have not been William' wife. His genetic mother remains unknown. Rogan began to grow very rapidly at the age of 13, leading to ankylosis. Already used to walking only with the aid of crutches, by 1882, he could not stand or walk at all. By 1899, he had grown to a height of 8 ft 6 in (2.59 m) and often appeared in newspapers, referred to as the "Negro giant". He got around on a goat cart he had made for himself and was always the center of attention, often noted for his deep voice and playful attitude. Although he could not work, he made a living by selling portraits and postcards of himself at the train station and, as noted in a 1897 article in the Kansas City Journal, had had a number of his drawings published. He refused all offers to join the carnival and side shows. Shortly before he developed ankylosis, Rogan was 8 feet 6 inches (2.59 m) tall and weighed 300 lbs. The disease hindered and eventually ended his ability to walk, eventually prompting the use of the goat cart.Rogan's hands measured 11 inches (28 cm) in length and his feet measured 13 inches (33 cm) in length. He continued to grow until his death; his exact height was not measured until after his death. At that time he measured 8 ft 9 in (2.67 m) tall, but weighed only 175 pounds (79 kg), making him the tallest person of African descent, and the second tallest person ever recorded, exceeded only by Robert Wadlow.Rogan died in 1905 from complications of his disease. His body was buried in the family yard under solid concrete to prevent anyone from exhuming and examining his body.
