I am still not sure who are the parents of Mary Elizabeth Nuckols, who married Patrick Henry Duggins about 1862 in Goochland or Hanover Co., Va. But I do know she is not the same Mary Elmira Duggins who was the widow of Boldman Hugo Bowles, regardless of the insistence of so many Nuckols researchers. WITNESS: 1870 census of Hanover Co., Va., Upper Revenue District,Ancestry Image 239 of 415. 308 308 Duggins, Patrick 40 " Mary 30 " Granville 14 " Samuel 9 (these two boys are sons of Patrick and his first wife, Lucy Jane Ford) " Eugene (Eugenia) 7 " John 5 " James 2 (James was my husband's Grandfather)
THEN!! A few pages further along, same place, etc. you will find: 1806 1813 Duggins, Mary E. 40 Bowles, Deacon 20 " Boldman 18 " Mana 16 (Martha Virginia) " Annie E. 14 " Susan L 12 " George W. Doswell 10
Now ---I really don't think the same Mary ran from house to house adding and subtracting 10 years in age on a regular basis. This widow Bowles/Duggins obviously married a Duggins. But NOT Patrick Henry Duggins.
If any of you have the wrong information in your data bases, will you PLEASE make the changes!! I would certainly appreciate it and will gladly receive any clues to our Mary's real parentage.
I am sending this to the Nuckols, Nuckolls, Bowles and Duggins lists. Thanks for your support.
