Dear Connie, You caught me before getting away from the computer to fix dinner.And Yes!I would love for anyone who might be able to help verify their ancestry, Beulah, etc.I am trying to determine if, in fact, Samuel Bugg was the son of Capt. Jeremiah Bugg & Mary Robison (Bugg-Arrington-Hatcher).If so, any descendants of theirs would be "half" relations of ours, so to speak:)
The Bugg's, with all their Jeremiah's and Samuel's, make it very confusing.We have a transcript of "a" Jeremiah Bugg's will in which he names only son Samuel and wife Mary, dated 1786..which seems to fit as Capt. Jeremiah Bugg, husband of Mary Robison, died in 1787.But when Mary died many years later (after 2 more husbands), she makes no mention of any Bugg grandchildren, etc.She does mention my greatx3 grandmother, her granddaughter, Martha Watkins DeLaigle, but of course she had raised Martha and Martha's brothers, who had been left orphaned, so that could explain it.But it is bothersome, nonetheless.
I'll post below what I show of some of the descendants.It is wonderful of you to offer, and any help you or your family could give would be wonderful.
I have, over the course of the past four years, discovered the wonderful town of Augusta, home of so many of my ancestors, and present day relations.I will hopefully return there in May for another family reunion, and more research.I couldn't help but fall in love with it.
Thank you once again.Ginga Mylius (Birmingham, AL)
