Descendants of Pierre Dragaud Updated November 9, 2000
About Our Family Research
I am just beginning the search for my family ancestors. A few years ago my father was mailed information from a relative that had found my father and grandfather through his research. I immediately became interested and pieced the information together as much as I could. I do not have the knowledge nor the time currently to invest in doing the research myself, but would love to collect information from others who might like to pass it along.There are a lot of gaps in the information that I have and would like to find people out there who may be able to fill in the holes. My family is descended from the original Pierre Dragaud of France and continues to follow the Pierre's to the John's. From John and Catherine Dragoo (1820) we follow Isabella who had a son George "Gov". We think out of wedlock and that's how we kept the name Draggoo (notice the spelling of our name now). We have little or no information about this.... This is what I'd like to know.
Descendants of Pierre Dragaud (42 KB) Our tree is made up of information gathered by various people and sent to me. I've done the best I can to piece it together but have a lot of gaps to fill. Would love to here from you if you can help fill in the blanks.
Job Prickett's House (21 KB) This house was built by Job Prickett around 1859. He was the great grandson of Jacob Prickett for whom the fort was named. It is located in Prickett's Fort State Park in West Virginia.
Barrackville, WV Covered Bridge (75 KB) This covered bridge is located in Barrackville, WV at the junction of Rt. 250 and 32. It is the 2nd oldest still existing covered bridge in West Virginia. It was built in 1853. The bridge was almost destroyed during Jones' Raid April 29, 1863, but was saved by the Ice family. It no longer carries traffic and was restored in 1999. The creek that it crosses is the Buffalo Creek. This creek is the one that follows the indian trail that Betsy Straight Dragoo was killed on.
My Direct Lineage (122 KB) This is a shortened version of my family tree. It only includes those directly linked to me. I've left out all of the cousins and who they married and what children they had.
Descendants of Pierre Dragaud (227 KB) This is what I have been able to put together from information gathered by other people and from information I've found on the internet. Any input from anyone to correct errors or fill in gaps would be greatly appreciated.
