I had for some time three copies of documents stating the name as Julius Driggers who served in the American Revolution in SC., and I am trying to connect my family ancestors to he, William and Debrix Driggers who also served. My Gt Gt Gt Gt Grandfather Elijah Driggers was counted in the 1800 Charleston SC Goose Creek census along with Elisha'Lisha'Driggers. Elijah Driggers born abt 1760 married Doney Odum born abt 1760, both had three sons named. Jonas Driggers born 1790 Georgetown District, died Goose Creek SC 1857 Julius Driggers born abt 1794 Georgetown District, died Goose Creek before the year 1850. Elisha Driggers born 1797 Georgetown District or St. James Goose Creek SC, died Goose Creek SC 1873.
I know my Gt Gt Gt Grandfather Elisha Driggers born 1797was named after the older Elisha who I believe was born sometime abt 1755 and should be his uncle. Jonas Driggers who was born in 1790 perhaps was named after the Jonas who migrated to GA and settled Julius born abt 1794 is named after the Julius who served in the American Revolution. besides being related to Elisha born 1797 I am also related to his brother Jonas thru another marriage.
In the 1810 Sumter SC census William Driggers born abt 1755 was counted as head of house hold of five free persons of color. he was invited to settled there with others by Gen Sumter, William is believe to be a brother of Elisha Driggers born abt 1755 who purchase land in Charleston District in 1797. Willian Driggers was also the father of my Gt Gt Gt Gt Grandfather Moses Driggers born 1780 Georgetown SC making him another Driggers line that I stem from. This is what I found on Julius Drigger
