Family Newsletter nr 31.....February 1998

Dear Cousins, It's been a while since the last Newsletter. You may have thought I had given up on you. I have been very busy with my business and have had to put a lot of personal matters aside for a while. It looks like it will be nose to the grindstone for another year. Not to worry, I will still publish but I can't get as involved as I have in the past. Did I forget to print  someones email? Please let me know......Wishing you all the best....Lyman

My name is John Duggan Eadie, #11598 in your web site.  I
happened upon your web site over the Thanksgiving holidays, and
I found it very interesting. My father, John Riley Eadie, has
been researching the Duggan family himself.  Your site has made
is work much easier.

Just a couple of updates.

I am married to Elizabeth Webb Eadie b. June 14, 1962.  We were
married August 25, 1984.  We have one son, Matthew Duggan Eadie,
b. Sept. 7, 1990.

My sister, Carolyn Clark Eadie, now Davis (you have her listed
as Caroline) is married to Mike Davis and they have two
 Jake Davis b. Nov 1991 and Patrick Davis b. June 1993.

I have checked out your Duggan web page. Would you happen to
know if you have ever came in contact with any Duggans from West
Cork ?

While doing research on my Murnanes, I have come across the
Duggan name frequently. Duggans have been sponsors at Murnane
baptisms and witness at Murnane marriages.

My grandmother, Ellen Lucey, was born in Ratooragh, Schull West
in 1886. She is the one that married a Murnane. Her mother was
Mary Duggan.

At this point I am only working on the Murnane side, but if you
know of any Duggans in West Cork, I would love to know.

Thank you,

Tim Murnane

Just wanted to say thanks for all the great info on your web
page. My family has been doing some research on our history, and
in one fell swoop you've provided information all the way back
to the 17th century for us! Thank you.

According to the information on your page, we are descendants of
William Duggan of Ulster, Ireland. My father is the son of
Nannie Sue Duggan and Riley Daniel Eadie. Sadly, my father
passed September 18, 1997.

My nephew John found your page and has alerted the rest of the
family about it. I'll be plugging this information into my
geneology software (after I get something that works a little
better) and adding our little branch to it.

If you haven't heard from him already, my younger brother, Mell
Duggan Eadie, will be sending you some updated information on
our part of the family. If you'd like once I get all this
plugged in I'll send you a GEDCOM file of it. Of course, I'd
like to get all the info my uncle (also named Mell Duggan
Eadie--he's the Mell in your file) gathered entered in as well,
but we need to get copies of all his research.

I was hoping as well that you might be able to tell me where you
discovered the geneology of William Duggan. Did you do the
research yourself? I'd love to be able to credit you for all
this information if appropriate.

Thanks again!
Derwood Eadie

Ok, so I'm not very perceptive sometimes. I see the credit to R.
S. Duggan in the file now... Oh well.

I also thought of another bit of information you might like. My
grandparents Nannie Sue Duggan and Riley Daniel Eadie lived in
Clayton, Rabun County, Georgia. Their home is being maintained
by my uncle Frank. The hill they live on is called Duggan Hill,
and is a part of (from what I remember) Screamer Mountain. This
is in the extreme northeast corner of the state in the
Appalachians. I have many very fond memories of summer vacations
on Duggan Hill.

Dear Lyman,
                   I have in my possession, a letter written by
                   my mother's cousin named Isabella J Duggan
                   from Rossmore, Vicarstown, Stradbally on June
                   9, 1920 describing some family affairs.
                   Isabella's mother was Jeanette Gordon
                   Fletcher and hopefully she was my
                   grandmother's sister.  My grandmother was
                   Sarah Adelaide Gordon born in 1861.  Father
                   was Robert Gordon, mother Elizabeth Brodie,
                   born in Leith, Scotland.
  I have been trying to find out where Sarah was born and
  someone mentioned the Police Barracks.  Sarah told my mother
  in later life that she was born in Ballyfair.  But since I
  haven't been able to get through some of the usual channels,
  Iv'e tried others. Apparently, Robert was in the Royal Irish
  Constabulary in 1861.  I am seriously trying to write a book
  about my dear grandmother who died here in New Zealand Feb 13
  1932, When I was three! On her engagement to our grandfather,
  Sarah was described as the second daughter of Robert Gordon.
  Sarah Adelaide came to New Zealand at the age of 17 years, in
  1878. Jeanette's last address was given as C/- Moore Abbey
  Lodge, Monastrevin.

Please e-mail my daughter and leave a message if you can help.

Thank you very much. Patricia Bennett. New Zealand.

Just found your Duggan site tonight.  I'm trying to trace the
ancestry of my wife's grandmother, who was born Helen Agnes

We interviewed her in the 1970s, and learned the following:

Her father was Charles Cornelius Duggan, born 20 Nov 1849 in New
Orleans, LA.  His father was probably also named Charles.
Charles Cornelius was a chemist and fresco painter, belonged to
the Catholic church, lived at one time in San Francisco, CA, and
died in Brooklyn,NY in April of 1916.

He married Margaret Mary McBride, who was born in Texas on 15
Aug 1856.  She died in Brooklyn, NY about 1906.

They had 6 children: Mame, Suzie, Charles David, Annie, Sarah
(Sadie), and Helen Agnes.  The children were all born in
Brooklyn between 1875 and 1887. Suzie and Charles David never
married.  Annie and Sadie married but had no children.  Mame and
Helen had children.

I have more info on these folks if you are interested.

Please let me know if you can tie Charles Cornelius in with any
of your known Duggans.  In searching your newsletters, I find 2
different Charles's that are the right age, but no mention of
them in the New Orleans area.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Dalriada was an Irish kingdom in the S.W. of Scotland, in the
area where Loch Dougan and Dougan Hill is, Dougan being the
spelling in Scotland of the clan. I came across some research
data from a group of historians and archaeologists from
Cambridge University in England. My neighbour is a professor at
my local university and it was He who gave the collection of the
data to me knowing I was interested in Irish / Scottish
history.The research was compiled from data collected over 100
yrs. I have always thought that the Dougan/Duggan name was
stronger in Scotland than Ireland and this research answers a
lot of questions. the coat of arms is in Scottish colours and
many landmarks are named after the clan.I believe the clan came
across with the Scots from Ireland to form Dalriada.

Michael who married Johanna Hanby who we believe settled in

Hello Lyman:

My maiden name is Judith Anne Duggan (Jude for short) and I live
in Ontario, Canada.  I was just cruising the net looking for any
Duggans and came across your Geneology page and started laughing
because it was last updated on my birthday.  So..being of Irish
ancestry and failing miserably at trying to be a grown up and
not be superstitious...well, I decided to email you and
introduce myself. Hi!

When a person reaches middle age and starts looking at their
"place" in the lineage, I guess she starts wondering where all
the people that influenced her genetics came from.  All I know
is my fathers name...his fathers name...and my great
grandmothers name (Boadicea ... I wonder if Grandpa was fooling
me).  And they came from Ireland.  If not, then the red hair and
the personality is really misplaced! :)))

I hope that you will contact me...wonder if we are related at

Subject:          The Wild Colonial Boy

Dear Lyman:

I was exploring your "Duggan" page and saw that you were seeking
additional lyrics to "The Wild Colonial Boy."  My name is James
Thomas Duggan.  I am an attorney practicing in Suffern, New York
(Rockland County).  I am married to Erin O'Brien-Duggan, and I
have a brother named Patrick M. Duggan.  My sister, Eleanor
Elizabeth Duggan-Riordan died in 1986 from a second heart

My mother and father were Raymond John Duggan and Kathleen Agnes
Duggan. My mother's mother and father were Varos (Abrahamian)
and Elizabeth (McLaughlin) Abraham.  My paternal grandfather was
Patrick Duggan.

My father was born (I believe in the Bronx) in 1914.  He died in
February of 1986.  I believe that all of my grandparents (with
the exception of Varos who was born in Armenia) were born in the
United States.  So much for geneology.

As to the song:

I used to be part of a musical trio that performed in a
restaurant known as Flanagan's in New York City.  As the token
American, it was my privilege to sing one of the verses of "The
Wild Colonial Boy" each night we performed.  I seem to remember
the verse going something like this:

 "Ah, surrender now, Jack Duggan, for you see it's
 three-to-one," "Surrender in the king's high name for you are a
 prodigal son," Jack drew two pistols from his vest and proudly
 waived them high, "I'll fight but not surrender," said the wild
 colonial boy.

I hope this has been of some help to you.

I have some material on some Duggans born in Ireland
went to Whitehaven, Cumbria, England before moving on to the
U.S. The family members I have been told about James Benedict
Duggan sailed for New York and California in 1867 and did well
in San Fracisco. Joseph is said to have left about 1880 and
settled in New York.He was married in New York about 1887 to a
Mary Fox. The family later joined his brothers James and Edward
in San Francisco.

There is quite a lot more but I have some
doubts about the early findings as a statement was made that
"there were no Duggans found in the 1851 census for Maryport
Cumbria" but I now know this to be incorrect. Keep up the good
work, will drop in again sometime..........Regards Paddy.

Dear Jeff Duggan

I saw your posting on Lyman Duggan's Duggan website.

We are not related but my own ancestors were Irish immigrants to
Merthyr Tydfil and I have gathered information on all the
Duggans I could find there. This includes some concerning your
ancestors Richard and Elizabeth.

The 1851 census was taken on 30 March 1851. Your ancestors are
listed in North Georgetown, Lower Merthyr Tydfil. This may be
seen using the reference HO 107/2458 at the Family History
Centre in London, or, more conveniently, looking at Microfilm
number 0104200 which you can arrange to see at a Mormon (Latter
Day Saints) Family History Centre. There must be many of these
in Australia. (As you may know, Mormons take genealogy very
seriously and devote enormous resources to gathering data. They
are very hospitable to non-Mormons like myself.)

The listing in Enumeration District 2 shows for 131 Georgetown
(not a proper address, most people had no official address
 Richard Duggan, Head, age 30, Collier, born Radnor, Llanstephan
 Elizabeth Duggan, wife, age 24, Collier's wife, born Merthyr

I have some birth  and death certificates. William was born on
20 Jan 1846 in Georgetown. His father was an Iron-miner and
illiterate (he made his mark rather than signing his name when
he registered the birth.) Margaret was born on 5 March 1850 in
Georgetown. Again the father registered the birth leaving an X;
he was a Miner.

Deaths: William Duggan died 9 March 1849 at CaePanTwyll (I think
this should be Cae Pant Twyll). He was aged 3. He died of Croup
from which he had suffered for 2 days. He was the son of Richard
Duggan, a Miner of Georgetown. Again an X.

I will see if I can identify Thomas, Francis, and Mary Jane in
the indexes of births and deaths.

There were (probably still are) quite a few Duggans in what used
to be Radnorshire. They were not Irish Duggans. The name has a
quite separate Welsh origin, and comes from Cadogan; there were
Duggans in Pembrokeshire and also in English counties close to
Wales such as Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.

There is another Radnorshire Duggan family in the Merthyr census
of 1851; a widow named Meleory Duggan (at least that's what it
looks like) aged 59 who was born in Herefordshire, and Robert
and Edwin Duggan aged 22 and 20, both born Radnorshire and
probably her sons. I have no way of knowing whether the young
men were perhaps Richard's brothers.

Hope this is helpful. It should be possible to find Richard's
christening in Llanstephan church records. Again the Mormon
Family History Centres may save you a trip to Wales.

Subject:          could you update my email address?

Hi Lyman:  It has been a while since I have written.  But I have
a favor to ask.  Could you please change my email on issue 19 to  This address should not change.  Recently
a cousin found me through your page.  She sent an email to the
old address and thankfully someone there forwarded the bounce to
me.  This list gave her some information as to her namesake and
her father's middle name.  It was really kind of neat.  I'm sure
I'll keep in contact with her. Thanks again for providing a
place for Dugans of all backgrounds to gather.

Thanks, Mendi Hull Warren     (ed. note:  Mendi I changed your address on issue 19!)
