Family Newsletter  40.....Sept 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.

My name if J. Conaway Craft. I, too have some information on my
ancestors, the Duggans. Of course, not near as much as you. I follow the
line down to Elizabeth Betsy Duggan who married Samuel Geesling. Our
spellings differ. I realize that this often happens. I have some
information on Cones and Mayos. You two seem to be very outstanding
people.  It's really a very small world. I enjoyed your family history.

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
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?

Hello Lyman,
      I was surprised to find the Duggan/Dugan, etc. newsletter while
researching my maternal grandfather, Michael Duggan/Dugan.  I don't know
what county he came from, but I had seen his citizenship papers and the
spelling was with 2 g's.  However, the story is that he changed it to only
1 'g'.  What is the likelihood of these changes meaning something?
     Michael married Bridget O'Donnell and they lived in the Bronx, NY,
had 6 children:
Edward, Joseph, John, Mary, Ellen and Anne (my mother).  I don't know
whether they married here or in Ireland, but I think in NY.  I have a bit
of info on Bridget, but I need to find out something about Michael.  What
do you suggest?
     How can I get the newsletter regularly?
Thanks.  Agnes (

Subject:         Re: Dugans (or Duggans) Sutton Fowler Dugan

Hello again Lyman,

I'm sending an abbreviated, e mail version of my Dugan lineage chart.  A
great deal of the information included here was compiled by my great aunt,
Bertha Pearl (Dugan) Hofman.  It begins with my ggggrandfather, Sutton
Fowler Dugan, and his siblings.

I and several other Dugan "cousins" believe that Sutton Fowler's parents were
probably James Dugan and Hannah Fowler, who were married May 5, 1808,
in Campbell Co, KY.  All of Sutton Fowler Dugan's siblings,
(Isaac Franklin, James, Sarah, Anna, and Altha or Althea) were
born at least 10 years after Sutton Fowler, and may have been from a second
wife of James Dugan.  I'm also investigating the possibility that James Dugan
who married Hannah Fowler, may be the same man as James Duggan (with 2 g's),
born in Tyrell Co, NC in 1790.

I'm currently in contact with four other descendants of Sutton Fowler
Dugan, and one descendant of Sutton Fowler's brother, Isaac Franklin Dugan.  All
these families were around May Day, Riley Co, KS by the 1860's.  Although
the town of May Day, KS, no longer exists, the cemetery is still there, and is
the final resting place of many Dugans.  About 1/2 mile to the west of the
cemetery is a ridge line which is still known as the "Dugan Hills."  I'll
be recording information from the cemetery for inclusion in the USGenWeb
Tombstone Transcription Project, sometime this summer.  It's located at .

Well, let me know if you can use this information as is, Lyman.

Thanks a lot,  Sue  :)

trying to find the ancestors of Dennis Dugan, my ggrandfather.  He
arrived from Ireland (probably Kerry because he stayed with a Kerry group and
married a girl whose father was from Kenmare, Kerry) about 1860.  There

Sir, I found your site today and, given that my maternal grandmother's
maiden name was Duggan, I thought I'd have a look.
It may interest you to know that my Great-Grandfather, one John Duggan,
of Carrick-on-Suir, near Clonmel, Co. Tipperary, Ireland, has a chapter
devoted to him in the 1901 Methuen book "The Green Sphinx", an Irish travel book
by one Bart Kennedy.
I don't know if this might help anyone but I offer it just in case!
Further to my previous message; it occurs to me that I have
been somewhat vague about my family!  a brief explanation; unfortunately my
grandmother, Bella Johnson nee Duggan, died a few years ago, before I
could get the family history from her.  She was the eldest of, I think, five
children, the others being John, William, Margaret and Sarah.
Her father was John (I don't have to hand the name of my Great
Grandmother), and they lived, if memory serves correctly in Carrick.  When John and
his wife died, Bella took care of the family; upon marriage she moved to
Clonmel, where she lived until she died.  William lives in Dublin, where
one of his sons works for Aer Lingus in a senior capacity.  John still lives
in Clonmel.  Margaret married and moved to London (my mother, Margaret's
niece, married Margaret's husband's brother!)  Sarah became a nun and is now
based in Bendigo, Australia.
Some distant cousins of the family own a jewellers shop in Clonmel,
called "Duggan". I don't have dates, but my grandmother was born in the early part of
this century (no later than about 1915)
All I know of John, my great grandfather is that he was a waiter in a
Carrick hotel, where he was interviewed by Bart Kennedy for the
aforementioned book (It has been some time since I have seen a copy of
this book, I don't currently own a copy, so some of the above details may be
slightly inaccurate)
I have not made a serious effort to follow the family history, hence the
large gaps!

My apologies for the vagueness of this, but I hope it may be of some use!

Best Wishes,
Paul Bines.

Dear Mr.Lyman,
 Just to let you know that my mother was a Duggan born in Athlone, Eire, and I would be interested to know more about her.

Here is all I know:

Bettine Elizabeth Duggan

Born: Athlone, Eire,in l910.

Daughter of James Duggan, horse trainer and Charmaine De Silva, homekeeper

Married  Royston Martin HUMPHRY, about 1927.  Divorced.     Then married
John Eden in Sydney, Australia, in l941.

Two sons by first marriage:  Garth Humphry (deceased l986)  & Derek Humphry  (myself).

One son by 2nd marriage, Shane Eden.

Mrs. Eden (nee Duggan) died in Bull Creek, Western Australia, aged 81, on 7th October l991.

I would be interested in hearing anything about the Irish side of theDuggan family, whom I believe lived mainly in the CORK  area.

Thank you.

I have also reached the same end with my search for my grandfather

Thanks for maintaining this page. My search for Dugan ancestors has been
eased by your efforts, but alas, to no avail -- so far.
Does anyone out there know of a Dugan family in LaCrosse, WI, about 1900?
Lawrence Dugan, my grandfather, was a policeman in the LaCrosse PD. His
wife was Ellen Conway.
They had three children:

John was my father, but family records were lost in a fire. I know details of the three children and their children,
but virtually nothing of the grandparents and their ancestors. None of the
references that I have seen on this Dugan Homepage seem to provide any links.

Other names on the Conway side are, I believe, Charles Hoeschler
(married Ellen Conway's sister); Don Welsh (a cousin via another Conway sister);
and LaVeque (sp?), also a married name of a Conway sister). I think all of
these people lived in or near LaCrosse at about 1900. I've had no
connections thus far on any of these names either.

Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Terry Dugan

Please document your Duggan Genealogy and send it to me for publishing and for the Archive. When you have new data, dates etc let me know and they will be published and archived too. Please let meknow the Issue Number so I can go back and make the changes/additions.

Because the Duggan Genealogy Records are Archived and will hopefully be available forever, it is a good idea to include your mailing address with any submission to the newsletter. Think about it, someone may read your posting years from now and have no way to contact you as emailaddress are easily subject to change.

When you make a submission, please include all of your known family data. Dates of birth, death, marriage, and locations for the same, wedding witnesses and the church, ministers name etc,, baptism dates and church, names of cemetarys. Remarks about each person are welcome too. If it ends up being a very large file then I may put the data on a page of its own and refer to it in the Newsletter and put a link on the Duggan Homepage too.
