Brief History

This place lies along the bank of the Miag-ao River facing Indag-an on the other side. It got its name from a brook. The other version is that Barangay Dawog got its name from a big snake lying in a brook in a "dawog" position.

During the Japanese occupation, seven innocent civilians were killed by their enemies. While penetrating this place, they were ambushed by guerilla soldiers led by Lt. Jose Orbe, Jr., son of Mayor Orbe. It was in this encounter when Felipe Moscaya of Ubos was hit by a Japanese rifle locally called "pikpok" and still carrying the slug in his body to the present.

Known heads of the place were Cabezas Dionisio Noviza and Tomas Nobleza; Teniente Monico Monteclaro, Francisco Nufuar, Regino Noveros, Ponciano Polido, Emilio Aguilar, Basilio Nufuar (1946-1951) and (1956-1963), Macario Noveros (1952-1955), Pedro Montaņo (1964-1967) and Francisco Aguilar (1968-1971). The present barangay captain is Salvador Nufuar (1972-1979). A long term of Purification Montana was followed by Genoviva Ngalongalay (1989-1994). In 1994-2001, the barangay was headed by Alfonso Ngalongalay until his death in November 2001. Ernie Fajarito was appointed to continue his unexpired term and headed the community upto the present.
