Re: James Lawson Scoggins - Pike Co., MO
It appears that we are talking about two different James Lawson Scogins. Ours is the son of Nathaniel Scoggins and Sarah Love, both of Pike County, MO. Our James Lawson Scoggins was born 1840, died 1914. He was married to Mary Adeline King (1849-1917).
The father of James Lawson Scoggins, Nathaniel, had three other brothers: William R. (b. 1838), Eastern R. (b. 1842) and Alexander (b. 1847). One of these brothers could have had a son who was also names James Lawson Scoggins. Nathaniel was born in South Carolina. It is possible that one of the brothers stayed in SC.
Sorry, but that is all we have.
