Seeking information on the Rice and Scroggin/s families:
Jackson County Georgia 1799 Tax List: Benjamin and David Rice and Chatham(Chattin Doggett) Scroggin (son of Humphrey Scroggin Sr. of VA). Chattin Doggett Scroggin remains in Jackson County Georgia where he dies in 1862.
Another Benjamin Rice, born in Georgia ca 1796, marries Margaret Scroggin, daughter of Humphrey Scroggin Jr. approximately 1812 in Tennessee. Benjamin buys property in Gallatin County Illinois in April of 1819.
Is this Benjamin the son of either Benjamin or David Rice located in Jackson County Georgia in 1799?
Also, Ransom Scroggin Rice is born in Georgia in approximately 1800. I believe Benjamin and Ransom Scroggin are brothers.
Who was Ransom Scroggin Rice named for?
Was there an earlier marriage between the Rice and Scroggin families or was the name granted because of close personal relationships between the two families? He is the only Rice in the 1830 Franklin County Tennessee Census.
Humphrey Scroggin, Jr is in Franklin County Tennessee in 1812 and Gallatin County Illinois in 1818.
Humphrey Scroggin, Sr. dies in Clarke County Georgia in 1821.
Young Benjamin Rice and Humphrey Scroggins, Jr. have property very close to each other in 1819 in Gallatin County Illinois.
