Yes, we Southerners don't do our successive geneaologists any favors by recycling those family names, now do we?(-;I am guilty of it myself, as I have named my own son "William Patrick Griffin Gallagher."(-:
There are several Dock (Doc, Doctor) Huggins and William Jabius's in the extended family tree which makes all of this a mysterious and intriguing puzzle to piece together. I have a similar situation going on in my mother's paternal line -- lots of William Griffins, etc.
My maternal ggrandfather William Jabe (Jabius) Huggins was born 3/1/1866 in Cheraw, SC and died 10/21/23 in Opp, Alabama.His wife was Frances Elizabeth Tolson, born 8/12/1868 in Darlington, SC and died 1/6/33 in Bradenton, Florida and was transported back to Elba, Alabama for burial there.We found the undertaker's State of Florida certificate to allow the body to be removed from Florida in a family Bible.
I have just started working on this this past week! My mother has had various papers for years but no time or money for doing the leg work. With the arrival of the Internet the process has been streamlined.
I will email you directly to compare notes! All the names in this posting and previous ones are the ones in my mother's family.
