Family Newsletter  39.....June 1999

More and more it seems, email comes asking me to find someone and less and less information is coming in. If you are one of the ones with questions, I hope that someone will have answers for you one of these days. In the mean time, here is a place to Archive what information you do have. The more data that you give us, the more chance you have of making a family contact who can help you fill in the blanks. We want your family data. Everyone comes here looking for data. When you have data to share, please submit it in an orderly fashion. Include birthdates, spouses, birth places, dates of death and place of death, etc. Do not leave anything out. Stories are most welcome too. Remember that this data will hopefully be archived forever and someone will be searching through this 100 years from now....yes even 1000 years from now. Well how about someone reading these notes 10 years from now. Will they be able to find you again. Email address change often so why not leave your mailing address.

From:            NANCY B DUGAN <>

Dear Friends,

     I'm responding to a section in your newsletter from a Linda Naranjo
dated 02-25-97. She said that she had reached a dead end with her search
for her grandfather Irvin's family. I have also reached the same end with
my search for my grandfather Maurice's family.  Both born in St Paul, MN.
Since BOTH of these names appear in her "article" I think we may be
related, but I can't get in touch with her because the e-mail address no
longer works. HELP!!!!!!!!!!

In your archives I found a letter from a Charles J. Dugan b. In Bristol,
Pa. in 1954. It was in Duggan Newsletter nr 4d,e, dated 3/18/95.

My research has led me to My gg grandmother (Catherine Dugan), living in
Bristol, Pa. in 1880.  I still live in Bristol, Pa and coincidentally, I
was also born 1954.

Do you know how I could contact Charles J. Dugan. There is no listing in
the phone book. The posting says From: Dugan.  I don't know if that is an
active email, besides it is a fairly old posting.

Catherine Dugan married Edward McElroy.  There daughter Grace, (my
maternal grandmother), married Charles E. Finney.  Their daughter is Mary
Jane Finney , my mother.

Any help is appreciated.

Sincerely Yours,

Hello there, you might get a lot of email  like this, so if this is
tedious I'm sorry, its just that I'm having so much trouble trying to find
a relative by the name of Margaret May Duggan.

All I know is that she was born in Canada in 1881 and that her father's
last name was Duggan - there was no other information on a more specific
birth date or any other family given names on her death certificate.

She married my great grandfather, Lorin (sp?) Douthett in Big Sky Montana.
 She had evidently been with a traveling show and it went bankrupt in Big
Sky so that's where she stayed and met my Great Grandfather.  She died
March 23rd, 1919, and unfortunately, the courthouse in town burned so
there are no records of her there for anything else - I'm pretty sure
there is no marriage certificate, and I'm hoping to be able to check
census files for 1910 to see if there was anything there for her.

If you have any ideas for me I'd really appreciate it,
Thanks so much,
Christina Lorentzen

Dear Lyman,
I recently found your website and intend to search it more thoroughly.
However, I thought I would send you what I have on my Dugan line.  I
copied it in report form from my FTM file.  Let me know if you would like
it in another format.  I haven't yet had time to work with immigration
records for my John Dugan. Diane Lane Descendants of John J. Dugan

Generation No. 1

December 1855 in Clark County, Ohio.

Notes for JOHN J. DUGAN:


1. According to great granddaughter Louise Davis, John Dugan came fom
Ireland to Ohio and was lost in the Civil War. Margaret Shaw later married
someone named Joe Walker in Illinois. This Joe Walker had a son named Joe
Walker, who lived in Clinton, Indiana. There is a Walker buried near the
Dugan's and Davis's in Little Grove Cemetery in Edgar County, Illinois. I
have an obituary for a Walker from Clinton, Indiana.

2. Marriage records (on LDS microfilm) from Clark County, Ohio, show the
marriage of John and Margaret.

marriage records list a Sallie Flint as daughter of Thomas Flint and ?
Moore; m. 5 August 1883 at age of 21 to Clanthus Kite. This could be the
sister Sarah who Louise recollected. Also, Mary C. Flint, who married
Zacharia Jewel 8 August 1891 (age 24) was the daughter of Thomas M. Flint
and Jane Moore, according the Edgar County marriage records. Census of

2) My brother - John Thomas Duggan (Tom - not Tommy) #11577 - died Oct.
24, 1996 3) My brother and his wife, Terri, had another son:   Jason
Duggan - born Dec. 19, 1990 4)Mary Frances Duggan (me) #11578 and Lee
Frederick Johnson #12894 had two children:  Laura Frances Johnson, born
Nov. 7, 1989 and Amy Elizabeth Johnson, born July 16, 1991. 5) Kendra Ann
Duggan #12889 and Bonnie Jeanne Duggan #12890 are not natural children of
John Edmondson Duggan (my father).  I don't know if you have a special

Hello Lyman!

I am so pleased to find your page!  I've been thinking recently of my
Irish heritage and would love to find cousins unknown.

How does one go about this?  I have very little to work with because my
maternal grandfather, Samuel Ross Dugan (born in South Dakota around the
late 1800's), was estranged from his father at a very young age.  I
believe his father's name was Charles.

My maternal grandmother is of Irish decent as well (her maiden name was
Jeffers, and her mother's was Orr), so I consider myself to be very Irish!
And I'm very proud!

Alas, some have called me "an abomination", due to my maiden name...
Woodruff...  and my paternal grandmother's maiden name...  Quiggle...
very English.  Research revealed many an Irish man and woman in both lines
as well.  Don't get me wrong, this doesn't bother me in the least.  I find
it quite humorous!  I think it is my Irish spunk that compels me to thumb
my nose at such nonsense.

Any advice you can give would be very appreciated.

Have you thought of moving the e-mail to a DUGGAN surname list on
Rootsweb?  That might make it easier, particularly for you!  You  could
tie to the list through a hot link, and get archiving and search engine
support.  It may be more involved than it seems, but might work out.

I haven't sent a note for a while so some updates are in order.

Recently had a note from Alex Duggan in the UK who is from the same
village in Wales (Pontyberem) that my GGGrand Father James Duggan
emigrated from 137 years ago.  I am hopeful that we will be able to
close the generation or two gap between my tree and his family.     .

There is a photo of James Duggan and his son William H. that is posted on
the Bradford County PA web site.

Also look in Barclay Township for history of the mining towns that James

and his younger brother Henry worked in.. Duggan family members are
mentioned in "The Romance of old Barclay". Mining town photos as well.

Some information on the Duggan family name that I found interesting :
Rowland's Surnames of Wales gives the following as Welsh useage.  >From
Rolands' p 83

CADOGAN is a Welsh patronymic surname, from the ancient forename
Cadwgan(which has elements in common with Gwrgan/Wogan). ... As a
surname it is subject to several variant forms, including Carduggan,
Carigan, Gudwgan, even KDuggan (Cosheston PR, Pembroke) and most notably
misleading, Duggan.  Though some of the latter may be directly Irish, that
many are Welsh may be deduced from their numbers in the border countries

and from a survey of the PR's 1813-1837:  Found only spasmodically
across south Wales. It is at its greatest concentration in Glamorgan
but is also to be found in Monmouthshire and Pembrokeshire.

The following, from a Welsh history page pick up on a discussion of the
term "black" as applied to the Northman invaders. see for more.

Welsh Names for the Northmen

The first raiders were Norwegians, known to the Irish as Finn Gaill, for
in 854, the chronicles record a new type of Northman appearing upon the
Welsh shores. Like the Irish, who called the Danes Dubh Gaill or "black
foreigners," the Welsh called the new sea-rovers appearing upon their
shores various names describing them as "black":

     gentiles nigri (the black heathen)
     y llu du (the black host)
     kenhedloedd duon (the black nations)
     y Normanyeit duon (black Normans)
     dub gint (black heathen, from Irish dubh Gennti)
     Brithwyr du (black Brithwyr)
     dieifyl du (black devils)

Some Welsh terms for the Vikings referred to the heathen, non-Christian
ways of the Norse Invaders:

     Gentiles "gentiles"
     Paganaid "pagans"

Other Welsh names for the Vikings included:

     Y Cenhedloedd (the nations)
     Nordmani (northmen)
     gwyr Dulyn (men from Dublin)
     y genedyl (the nation)
     y pobloedd (the peoples)
     Gwyddyl (Irish, but referring in actuality to the Hiberno-Norse)
     Daenysseit (Danes) gwyr Denmarc (men of Denmark) Lochlannaigh or
     Llychynwyr (men of "Lochlann" meaning Norway) Llychlynwys

I was browsing the 'Duggan' genealogy on the internet when I came across
the Duggan family and specifically the 'family newsletter'.  I am writing
to you with reference to the section entitled 'William Duggan of
Carmarthenshire, Wales' as I was born in Carmarthen 1967.  I currently
live in London, England.

In your excellent genealogy, you give the history of some of my relatives.
You specifically mention the village of PONTYBEREM on a number of
occasions. There are a number of Duggans buried in the village,
specifically at the church which is known simply as Pontyberem church.

My father, Neville Goodwin Duggan, was born in Pontyates, which is about
three miles from Pontyberem, in 1930.  He was very successful in the oil
industry, working for BP for 35 years, and lived all over the world,
finally settling near Aberdeen, Scotland where he lived for many years.
He was also a very good rugby player, playing for Swansea, one of the top
sides in Wales.  Sadly, he died suddenly a few months ago, on 8th December
1998, aged 68.  He is buried near his parents in Pontyberem church. My
mother, Thelma, still lives just outside Aberdeen, although she is
planning to move back to Wales shortly.

My father's father was Redvers Duggan, who was a Colliery Repairman in a
coal mine near Pontyberem. He died in 1966.  He was married to Clarice May
Duggan (nee Walters) who died in 1980. Both are also buried in Pontyberem

My own knowledge of the family history is quite sketchy.  There are still
a number of relatives living in Pontyberem and the surrounding area.  My
great aunt, Audrey Duggan, still lives in the village and is a wealth of
information about the family.

I know that two of my father's uncles went to Argentina (Patagonia) in the
early part of this century. They went out there to mine silver and to my
knowledge were quite successful.

Another of my uncles, Harry Duggan, was one of the original members of the
Welsh Guards and his name is apparently on a plaque in Caernarfon Castle
(a large castle in North Wales). I think he died in a battle Turkey around

Some other Duggans emigrated to Australia from South Wales. I believe that
they settled in Melbourne.

Anyway, it was great to read about some insight into the Duggan family
tree. I am currently writing from my work, so I would appreciate if you
didn't post this current e-mail address in the newsletter. I hope to have
a private e-mail address soon (my own computer died on me recently).
However, you can contact me on this e-mail address at present. I will
foreword you my new e-mail address when I have it. Meanwhile, you can
contact me at the following address:

We have thought Cloe Duggan - daughter of William - married James
Robason.  But your info says her cousin Millicent - daughter of John - was
James's wife.

So that knocks in the head our great Smithwick conection!

Could anyone give me any evidence of it's being Milly instead of Cloe who
married the Robason in 1760?

If Lanier is the line we should be looking for, is this family related to
the Laniers of Brunswick County, Virginia of the same time?

Dear Lyman,

Hi.  I was researching another line of family when I happened on your
Duggan/Dugan/Dougan Home Page.  What a find!  My mother's mother was Mabel
Genevieve Dugan, born in Clay County, KS, in 1898.  Her father was James
Dugan, whose father was Sutton Fowler Dugan, whose father was Aaron Dugan
(spelled Duggan in the chart in your newsletter), married to Nancy Brown.

As I was browsing through volume I of your newsletter, I found a line that
would appear to include Aaron, and seems to go back to John Duggan I, born
1690, in Ireland.  If this information is correct it will take me back
another four generations!  I can't wait to tell my mother (Donis Cleo
Vaughn, nee Paro) and my niece about this find!

I'll be happy to send my geneological chart, if you're still collecting

I was recently pointed to your web site by a person who noted a DUGGAN
connection in one of my emails. I have spent some time looking at your
site today, but there is more to be done.

I have very little on DUGGAN, but I will list it for the benefit of your
researchers. Who knows, someone may have further MORGAN connections I am
looking for.

In December past I received a bit more MORGAN info.. We had researched
back to a Joseph MORGAN, but now know he was born in Guysborough, Nova
Scotia, Canada in 1800 (from his death notice). His father was a John
MORGAN, mother unknown at this time. Considering the location and date, we
suspect the elder John was an United Empire Loyalist. Disbanded members of
the 71st Reg't of Foot, founded Guysborough in 1784, but we have yet to
prove he was one of them.

Joseph MORGAN, b:1800, Guysborough, NS. Married to a Mona /Maria /Marina
or Mariha DUGGAN. No further info at this time on her. My original
discovery was difficult to decipher, could have been Mona or Maria. Two
years ago I found a record of the marriages of three of their children in
Cape Breton, NS, and she is listed with one of the above variant given
names on each one. That didn't solve our mystery - it added a third
possibility. Another person copied it as Mara.

Joseph and Maria had the following known children -

John, b abt 1835/36, Baddeck, NS. Marr 2nd, Catherine Morrison 1880.
First wife unknown at this time, but a possible son John.
 2nd-Edward Wilson, Effie M., Amanda J. (my wife's connection).

Christopher, b abt 1836/37, Cape Breton, NS. Exact place not known.
He married-1) Elizabeth Patterson, b Margaree, CB, NS, died 26 Feb 1874,
Little Bras D'Or, CB, NS. 2nd) Rachael ROSS, dau of Wm. ROSS of NE
Margaree, and Margaret MACKINNON of Middle River.
 -William, Jacob, Joseph, Flora, Manah?, Christopher.
Note - `Manah' copied by the other party. I never found that child. Could
have been Maria.

Maria Pheby, b abt 1841, Little Bras D'Or. Marr Thomas Sherwin Newman of
CT, USA. No children known, not researched.

Albert, b abt 1843, Little Bras D'Or, a seaman, married Harriet WAYSON of
same place. Married 1870, died a few short years later. Left young wife
and children.

Another possible son. Nothing known.

Margaret MORGAN, b abt 1846, as above, marr. 1866 Donald ROSS of NE
Margaree. No futher info. on them, but much ROSS info available.

Another possible child.

The unknown children are interpolated from early census statistics which
did not list children by name, but by the number in one of several age

If any of your DUGGANs recognise any of this I would appreciate hearing,
so I could show a bit more of the DUGGAN connection. The DUGGANs of
Aylesford, NS, are most interesting, some given names are common with our
MORGAN gang.

You are free to publish this info.

By the way, you and your contributors have done a terrific job.

I,ve been meaning to do some research on the family
tree for years, so it was a real pleasure to find your
Duggan family web page. Perhaps now I can get down to
some serious business.If anyone out there can help I'd
be very greatful.
Our branch of the family come from around Castlewellan
in County Down. My grandfgather, Frank Duggan had a
smallholding on the Ballybannon road and also worked
as a blacksmith.At some point near the end of the
first world war he was working in the shipyards at
Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria, England.At a guess he
was born sometime in the eighteen seventies or
eighties. If my memory serves me right my
Grandmother's maiden name was Byrne (Burn?). My
father, Malachy Duggan, came over to Birmingham,
England in the late nineteen forties and joined up
with his brother Dick and his sisters Peggy and Kate,
some time later they were joined by another brother
Mick, who later emigrated to Melbourne, Australia.If

Subject:         Dugannes in NY
Date sent:       Sun, 28 Mar 1999 08:33:34 -0500

Hi! Just happened upon your page while doing a surname search on the
Family Tree Maker site. I am interested in the Duganne family because they
keep turning up on records relating to other lines I am researching.

My ggg-grandmother, Emma Jane Leonard married John Mann in NYC in 1875.
The witnesses were Albert and Mary Duganne. In 1874, Emma's sister Mary
Leonard married Alfred Duganne in NYC. And in 1895, Emma's daughter, Anna
Maria Mann, married William Henry and the marriage was witnessed by J.H.
Duganne in Brooklyn, NY. Obviously, the Dugannes and my ancestors were
very close.

Any help you might be able to offer on these Dugannes would be very much

Good luck with your research!

I was very pleased to discover your Duggan page on the net.
My name is Luke Duggan, an Australian Duggan living in
Japan at the moment.
I was even more pleased to note my own homepage attatched
to the Duggan links page.  You may be interested that I
have updated it and it is now at the following address:

Thanks again and I'll look forward to reading all of the other
information on your page.

Subject:         Reuben Duggins

Trying to locate information on my Reuben Duggins who was born in
Virginia around 1780.  He shows up on the 1807 tax list of Harrison
County, Indiana and is still there on the 1850 census.  He has a brother
Richard who also settled there in 1820.

Reuben is thought to have been married to a Clara Boaz and later married a
Margaret Deatrick.  He has children by both marriages.  Any help would be
appreciated.  I would be very happy to share what information that I have.

I am beginning to research my grandmothers family name. She believes no
one knows where her family came from but she thought they were Irish. If
you know of anyone who has done any research on Wilson Duggan [Col]  b 12
Sept 1808 d. 14 Feb 1875. Married to Elizabeth Keeler. They had at least
one son- Wilson Duggan (my GGrandfather). At some point they lived in
Sevier county TN, I would truly appreciate hearing from them. How to I get
the Duggan newsletter? Maybe we're cousins!

Thank you,
Paula Ferron

Subject:         Dogans of Wilkes Co., NC

I visited your page on the Dougans, and tried to go to your link to
"Desc. of Robert Doougan, b. 1804...PA", but the link didn't work.  I got
the message, "not found on this server."

I'm trying to find more on the Dogan/Doogan family that was in Wilkes Co.
NC (Surry and Rowan before that) in the 1760-1790 time frame. My ancestor
John Robins Sr. had a wife, Elizabeth in Wilkes Co.  She is said by others
to have been Elizabeth DOGAN, and I'm trying to confirm that. This couple
moved with their adult children first to Franklin Co., GA in the 1790's,
and later to Franklin Co. TN (not adjacent to FCGA), where they both died
in their later years. Can you direct me to information on this clan?

Thanks, Reiley Kidd
