Hroggar's mind is focused on Alva, with whom he stays and he doesn't care for his past family anymore.
Hroggar once had a wife as well as a daughter named Helgi, however, both were caught in the flames of their burning house which was being razed to the ground, and subsequently died. The ghost of Helgi can be found in the quest Laid to Rest.
Hroggar subsequently moved in with Alva, whom he cares for and protects with his life.
The Jarl of Morthal enlists the aide of the Dragonborn to first investigate the remains of his burned down house. Clues will lead to Alva's House. If the Dragonborn enters her house during the night Hroggar will attack in his confused state.

Hroggar explains that he was seduced by Alva and only reclaimed his own mind after she died and so released him.
Hroggar will buy any firewood brought to him.
