Subject:          John Duggan

Following is information on my family tree which includes the
Duggan surname.

JOHN DUGGAN - son of Danial Duggan and Mary Kelliher Duggan, born
at Lakes of Killarny, County Kerry, Ireland May 1, 1797.
Siblings were Daniel, Dennis, Henry, Eleanor and Nanno (I have no
birth or death dates for these people).

John emigrated to Boston in 1837.  He was married in Montreal,
Quebec on January 1,1850 to:

BRIDGET ENRIGHT - born December 25, 1827 at Bally Longford,
County Kerry, Ireland, the fourth child of Johanna Fennaughty
Enright and Thomas Enright.  Her siblings were Hannah Brassil,
Mary Kent, Joanna Moore, Katherine, Margaret Dunne, Michael and
John.

Bridget and John returned to Boston after their wedding, then
moved to Fairfield, Franklin County, Vermont where all their
children were born. The children were:
  - Mary Ellen Duggan - born January 12, 1851 Fairfield Vermont,
 
married Fred Farnham Carter
 - Daniel Duggan - married Katherine (I have no last name)
 - John Duggan - unmarried
 - Johanna Duggan - no further information
 - Thomas Duggan - married Julia (no last name)
 - Catherine Duggan - 1861-1908 - married Henry Koontz
 - Michael Duggan
 - Margaret Duggan - 1865-? (spinster)

In 1870 John and Bridget moved to Alden, MN where they took up
farming. John died December 3, 1890 at Alden, Bridget died in
1908.  They are both buried at the Catholic Cemetery at Twin
Lakes, MN.

Mary Ellen Duggan is my link with the Duggans.  She was married
at Twin Lakes, MN on July 3, 1873 to Fred Farnham Carter.  They
moved to Glenville, MN where he farmed and later had a grain
business.  All of their children were born there.  The children
were:
 - Fred Farnham Jr. - Aug.15, 1875 to Feb., 1938
 - Johanna Bridget - May 13, 1880 to July 14, 1916
 - Eleanor Mary - April 10,1884 to March 11, 1963
 - Lillis Isadore - October 18, 1887 to December 20, 1975
 - William McKinley - Dec. 2, 1893 to 1936

Mary and Fred sold out their business in 1900 and moved to a
homestead in Carter Township, near Bowbells, ND.  Fred was
appointed to the ND Legislature as the first representative of
that district, then served a County Judge of Burke County, ND.
Mary died August 11, 1931, Fred died September 7, 1934.  They are
both buried in the Bowbells, ND cemetery.

I hope that this information may be of help to someone.

Lyman-  I think I corresponded with you a few years ago about
your newsletter about the DUGGAN genealogy, but don't think
anything ever came of it.  I am looking for information about
Martha Ann DUGAN b. 1839 m. Andrew Jackson PEOPLES.  Martha Ann
is the daughter of Absalom L. DUGAN and Susannah SANDERS.  I hope
there is a chance of some links with your network of subscribers.
Please add me to your list.

Hi Lyman,

Here's my Duggan background:

of Galbally, Tipperary Ireland.  Their children were:

-Edward b.Dec. 9, 1861, sponsors John Dwyer & Mary Carthy
-Nicholas (my gr-grandfather) b. June 1868, spon. Daniel Dwyer & Bridget Ryan.
-Michael b. Oct. 1871, spon. Patrick Ryan & Honora Dwyer.
-James b.Oct 26, 1873, spon. James Dwyer & Margaret
-Kenna. Mary b. Dec.28, 1875, spon. Thomas Barry & Bridget Moroney.
-John b. July 2, 1879, spon. William O'Brien & Mary Dowdall.
William b. Aug. 1, 1880, spon. P. Ryan & Mary Heffernan.

All children were born in Kilross, Galbally, Tipperary, Ire.

Michael immigrated to US in1886, lived in Brooklyn NY, married
Johanna McGrath and had children:

-May,

-Miles, &
-Simon.

Nicholas immigrated to US in 1890, lived in Brooklyn NY, married

Edward immigrated to US in 1892, lived in Brooklyn, NY, and married a

stayed in Ireland.  One cousin by the name of William or Thomas
Duggan visited his NY relatives during WWII.  His ship was sunk
on his return trip across the Atlantic.

Lyman--
Just came across your web page via a link from Robert Duggan's
page. He's visiting his son in Tucson, so I will be "visiting"
with him when he gets back.

I likely am descended from William Duggan and wife Mary Smithwick
through their daughter Martha.  I do not have concrete proof, but
I believe Martha Duggan was the wife of Allen Hardie and have
circumstantial evidence of this union.  I have researched the
Hardie family for many years and have a great deal of information
on them. When I was in the GA Archives several years ago, I came
across two genealogies, one on Thomas Hooks as well as another
book, both of which gave the ancestry of William Duggan and wife
Mary Smithwick.

I noticed that your database shows Allen Hardie and Martha Duggan
to be married and shows their children Theophilus (my gggf) and
his brother William.  I can tell from Theophilus and William's
information that this likely came from Dixon's "History of
Stewart Co., GA."   I was wondering what source this marriage
came from?  I'm curious as to whether it's any additional sources
than what I have come across.

I'm not sure how many generations you trace the Duggan female
lines forward, but I have much information on William, Theophilus
and Allen(Jr) Hardie and their descendants.

I'm so glad to find your Duggan information!

Lyman,

I am researching my wife's family tree. I have located her
great-great- grandparents Arthur and Jane Dougan of Derry,
Ireland (Presbyterian) who had two sons James (born about 1836)
and Joseph (born about 1841). The brothers emigrated to Australia
(where James married) and then to Victoria, British Columbia.

I've searched your home page but found no mention of Arthur
Dougan.

Do you have any information?

Thanks,

Subject:          Another Dugan

Actually, I'm a Tresha Wilson Dugan.  I have recently begun searching my
husbands family line. They mostly come from the Missouri area and
Kansas.

I believe I have traced his grandfather (Mitchell Dugan b. 25Mar1900 Dallas Co MO) to
Labette Co Kansas through census records, Iam awaiting documentation to prove it.
Mitchell Dugan, according to the census, had several brothers and sisters.

I was wondering if anyone elsehas come across these names. Birth years are estimates.

Cuba Duganb.1989,
Virgil Dugan b. 1902,
Pauline Dugan b. 1909,
Eugene Dugan b.1910,
Dean Dugan b.1911,
Dimple Dugan b. 1912,
Robert Dugan b. 1916.

All of them born in Mo except the last three.  The fathers name is of course

John Dugan b.1867 MO and the mother
Louise Dugan b.1874.

Thanks for any assistance given. Tresha

Subject:          Duggans in South America.

Lyman,

Hi, I may be what you call a distant relative. While my name is Roberto
Helguera, I am somewhat of a Duggan, since my paternal grandmother was a
Duggan through her mother. Her name was Marcela Torres Duggan, and she lived,
as all my family does today, in Argentina. There are several hundred Duggans
in Argentina, the other paradise, together with the US, for those europeans
fleeing the continent for whatever historical reasons at the time they fled.

We recieved two great immigration movements in Argentina in the late 1890's
and early 1900's, mainly from Italy and Ireland.  Hence, many a Duggan came to
our largely agricultural country, fell in love with it and stayed for good.
While I do not have details of my family line with me (for I live in New
York), I can have my father (a fanatic of all that is genealogy) fax me the
few pages we have tracing our family roots, back all the way to Ireland. That
could add an interesting page both to the Duggan web site and to your own
library. Question: Is the crest in the Duggan family page the only Duggan
crest? I seem to remember another crest for the Duggan family incorporating a
quarter moon in it (like the moorish moon). Am I mistaken?

Hi, Duggan Kin and Cousins:

FYI I've put up my latest Duggan register (4/8) on the Web...around 200
pages plus a name index.  It's in .TXT format.  Well over 600 kbytes, it
thus takes quite a while to be loaded and then viewed or printed.

It lists some 4176 descendants of William Duggan plus 2077 spouses...
Over 6000 of your kin & cousins.

It can be found on the Web at...

Hi. Just stumbled across your home page. I'm a Duggan from England (
Liverpool ) now living near Philadelphia. My grandfather moved from
County Wicklow to Liverpool in 1918 and was a merchant seaman all his
life. With a population of 1.7 million, approx 85% of the Liverpool
population have direct Irish ancestary. There's a ( funny - tongue in
cheek ) quip which goes along the lines of 'Dublin may be the capital
but Liverpool's the biggest city' !!!!!!
A few things.
Could I just point out please - as a point of order - that Dugan and
Dougan are pronounced "Doo-gun" - while Duggan should be pronounced
"Dugg-un" - and not "Doo-gun" :-)
There is some conjecture as to the origin of the Duggan / Dougan / Dugan
name. Many claim it is a Manx name ( Isle of Man ) and there is good
evidence to support this. Others believe the name originated in Ireland
back in the 1400's and the Duggan name was used as a reference to "the
dark ones" who settled and eventually mingled in Ireland - most probably
Portugese / French and - or Spanish fishermen. Certainly the classic
dark hair and blue eyes could be symptomatic of this !!?!!
Just a quick point but I have found most Duggans / Dugans / Dougans  are
quite dark - are we agreed on this ?

Regards

Allan Duggan

Subject:          John Duggan of Tipperary
 

The Tipperary Heritage Unit responded to my request that they search for my
ggf Robert Duggan (1844-1918), and his parents John Duggan and Ellen (maiden
name illegible on Robert's death certificate).  They couldn't find a baptism
record for Robert, but they came up with three possibilities for a marriage
record in a search of 23 parishes for John and Ellen.  I am convinced that
they hit on one: John Duggan and Ellen Bowe, m. March 3, 1835 in the parish of
Gortnahoe.  I am going to have them search for baptism records for them, as
well as children's baptism.  Since those searches take a while, I am providing
the information now.  In case others may benefit from the other information, I
am also providing the following:

John Duggan and Ellen Meagher, m. February 2, 1837, Parish Drangan, witnesses Henry Maher and Robert Maher(Meagher/Maherin register); John Duggan and Ellen Cronin, m. May 24, 1837, Parish Bansha,
witnesses Patrick Cronin and John Murphy, (Cronin and Croneen in register).
