Do you know of the Sarah D. Bugg who was Willis Lemuel Bugg and Caroline Jane Eidom's daughter?I have that she was born abt. 1843 and married Hugh Jess Pierce in Cherokee County in 1867.I'm trying to figure out Hugh Jess Pierce's parents.I'm pretty sure that he's related to the other Pierces in my tree (related to me only by marriage).Sarah's sister Martha E. Bugg married George L. Pierce so he was probably a brother to this Hugh Jess. This Hugh Jess would have been born c. 1840.
In my tree, there's a Hugh Jess Pierce 1860-1934 who married Martha Elizabeth Dickey. This Hugh Jess was the son of Riley Jordan Pierce Jr.Riley Jordan Jr. had a brother Hugh Pierce who was born in 1840 in AL.The name Hugh also appears in this line in the 1700s, the oldest Pierce that I have in the line. This Hugh COULD be the Hugh Jess who married Sarah Bugg, he had a brother George Washington Pierce who might have been the George who married Martha E Bugg.
Obviously there is probably a relationship here but I haven't been able to crack it yet.Just wondering if you had any information.
