In the Land Records of Liberty County Ga. there are separate listings for HANNAH BAGGS and ESTER BAGGS, which leads me to believe they are 2 different women. I have notice in some BAGGS research the listings of HANNAH ESTER BAGGS. I believe them to be 2 separate women, due to the records listing them as such. Maybe they were both Dennison sisters, who married BAGGS brothers. Just a thought?
