Subject:         Searching for LaCrosse, WI, Dugans


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, b. 1900; Edward, b. c.1903; and Helen, b. c. 1906. 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

Dear Mr. Duggan,

I came across your site while looking other stuff up to do with the Reunion program for my Mac.  Great! Except: the one site of yours that applies to me could not be found; or my Mac could not find the server for that site. I am a computer novice, really, but all the other stuff did come up.

The site I am looking for is "Descendants of Robert Dugan of Fayette Co. PA d. abt 1804"  Do you know of any other way that I can pull this up?
I am going to Fayette Co. in July to the county seat, Uniontown, to the public library. They have a geneology specialist, with census records of
1790 to 1920, and old marriage certificates. She said that Connelsville's libray also had good research materials.

My father's ancestors from that area are Dugans, Longs, McClellands, Rushs, and, the one she knew all about, Thomas Gregg.  Actually, she knew
all these names well.

My father's mother copied from her mother's bible a family tree; and put down that :  James Dugan came to somewhere in America about 1748 from
County Armah or Derry, Ireland. he married a Mary Mason of Virginia.
One son, William Dugan, married a Ellinoir Middleton.

One of Wiliam's sons, John Dugan died in Connelsville,Fayette Co. and married a Catherine McClelland, whose family was from Maryland.
One of John's sons, another John Dugan, was a Col. in the PA Regiment, died in Connelsville, and married a Maria Gregg, daughter of Thomas Gregg
the inventor of the ballproof vessal which was patented in 1814 by the US govt. and used to build the Union's Civil War vessal.

 They had a daughter named Margaret, born Jul 18, 1827.  Margaret married Hiram C. Long, born April, 1819, on May 7, 1846. They had 11
 -Hiram died in July, 1865.
 -Margaret and kids went to Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, perhaps by Kentucky, and Margaet died April 9, 1873.
 -Maria Agnes Long, a daughter of Margaret Dugan Long and Hiram, was born March 21, 1847, in Connelsville, and died in Kansas near Wichita Nov. 23,
 -Maria Agnes married a William James White, originally of Indiana. One daughter was Anna Estella White.
 -Anna married a Thomas Albert Jackson, and they both died in Yates Center, Kansas. One son, Edgar Earl Jackson, was my father.
 Of course, there were lots more childern along the way.  I think that the Robert Dugan of your site was a brother of my first William Dugan.

 My father, Ed Jackson, ended up in Austin, Tx, after WWII, where I grew up.  However, I married a Yankee, and now live in a suburb of Rochester,
NY. Maybe some of this will help someone else working on Dugans.  Please let me hear from you, if you would like any more information that I gather
this summer, or how I can read the site that i couldn't get.

 Thank you very much,
Sincerely,    Suzanne Jackson Nash

Subject:         Dougan family tree

I'm so glad to have found you, though our names are not exactly spelled
the same.  I noticed that you listed Dougan as a header, but I could find
no links of family trees that anyone else with this particular spelling
may have created.

I am going to my Dougan family reunion (74 of us) in Calif. the end ofAugust
and would love to pass out a family tree for all of us.  Do you
know of a way you could help me find this information?  I know I don't
have much time, as I'm finding this is a considerable undertaking!!!

  Let me tell you what information Icurrently have on my ancestors.  My great, great grandfather was William Dougan (born April 25, 1833), who married Elizabeth Golway (born August 1,1849).  They were married January 16, 1866.  They raised 9 childrensomewhere in Canada and were originally from northern Ireland and were Presbyterians.

They bore the following children:  Sarah Elizabeth, Margaret Ann, William
Johnstone, Emeline Malissa, Orin Gibson, Harry Leslie, Perry Preston,
Carrie Lilian, and Murney Garfield (my grandfather) who married Ruth
Welch.  My grandparents raised their 7 children in Ontario and
Saskatchewan provinces and then migrated down to northern Calif. around 1925.

Subject:         Michael Duggan of County Kerry Ireland

I just stumbled across your Duggan newsletter and would like to know if there is anyone out there who can connect to my Conecticutt Duggans.  My Michael Duggan is buried in St. Patrick's Cemetery in Hartford, CT.  On his marker it says "native of County Kerry Ireland".  Died August 18, 1872 at the age of 35.  In the 1870 Conecticutt census he is listed as a coachman.  He married Ann Brennan in Hartford at St. Patrick's (July 10, 1864.)  He had three daughters:  Mary Ann (born May 1, 1865), Hannora (born August 27, 1866), and Jane Theresa (born February 22, 1868).

Mary Ann is the only child who married and had children (my great grandfather, Patrick J. Sullivan married Mary Ann in Hartford.)  I would appreciate any help in finding out about this branch of the Duggan family.         Thanks so much!

I am trying to find info on Ralph and Devena Walker Duggan.  Actually, I'm trying to get some info on a baby girl adopted by them.  When I saw that
you were in Tampa I about croaked since this baby girl was born in Tampa on May 23, 1922.  They named her Mary Frances and moved to Severville, TN
shortly afterward.  I am a friend of Mary Frances' family and am trying to locate her birth sister (Helen Belk).  As you can see by the birthdate,
time is of the essence.  If you have any info you'd be willing to share, I'd sure appreciate it!  Thanks -Kathi

Subject:         Daniel DUGAN, born 17 July 1784 in VA or MD

 I am seeking the parents  of my great-great-grandfather Daniel Dugan.

Family word-of-mouth tradition says our Irish immigrant ancestor was a
novice for the priesthood; changed his mind; took a bride; and boarded a
ship for Baltimore, MD. I have not been able to find him in any records,
but this would agree with the location of the first known ancestor's

This ancestor, Daniel Dugan was born 17 July 1784 in either MD or VA.
Later his parents moved to Ohio; but by age seventeen, Daniel was living
in Kentucky.  In 1806, he claimed land in St. Louis and Cape Girardeau,

He married Catharine Vaden on 10 April 1808 at Little Prairie, MO, on the
bank of the Mississippi River. This little settlement was located at a
point a short distance from the present town of Caruthersville. Catharine
Vaden, born in Shelby Co., KY, was the daughter of William Vaden, Jr., and
his first wife.

Daniel and Catharine became the parents of eleven children born between
1809 and 1833. It appears that they often moved from state to state
leaving only a few traces. We know they left Missouri and lived in
Indiana, Illinois, Louisiana, and Arkansas before settling in Texas in

Daniel's oldest son, George Cox Dugan, preceded the family to TX to check
out the situation. When George, who rode horseback, returned to Arkansas,
where the family waited, the Dugans began their journey to Texas. This
trip was filled with many trials and hardships.

On this covered wagon trip, there were Daniel and Catharine and eight of
their eleven children. Their eldest daughter, Cynthia, had married Arnold
Hutton in Greene Co. IL, 30 March 1824, and likely never came to Texas.
Two other daughters, Millicent and Mary, had died young. They later named
another daughter, Mary Elizabeth.

The Dugan children accompaning the family were:

              George Cox Dugan, born 7 Oct. 1812 in Jefferson Co., MO
               Daniel Vaden Dugan, born 1 Jan. 1817, Jefferson Co., MO
               Mary Elizabeth Dugan, born 11 Aug. 1819, Greene Co., IL
               Emily Dugan, born 8 Feb. 1822, Greene Co., IL

               William Burks Dugan, born 20 July 1824, Greene Co. IL
               Catherine Cleopatria Dugan, born 25 Dec 1826,Greene Co., IL
               Henry Patrick Dugan, born 19 Sept. 1829, Greene Co., IL
               James Martin Dugan, born 11 Feb. 1833, IL or AR

James, the youngest child, died 25 July 1836, along the trail to TX.
Daniel Vaden Dugan, another son, was scalped by Indians 27 July 1841 about
two miles from his home. William Burks Dugan died of natural causes 19
Dec. 1843. Mary Elizabeth and Emily both married and had children, but
both died of "lung fever," likely flu, on 15 Dec. 1846.

George Cox Dugan married Harriet Jane Wall 7 Jan. 1849 and had a large
family. He lived in the Sherman, Grayson Co., TX, area.

Catherine Cleopatria Dugan married 19 Sept. 1849 Rev. Barton Walton
Taylor, a Methodist minister and educator. They had a large family and
moved to Santa Cruz, CA.

Henry Patrick Dugan married Ann Eliza Spotts 31 March 1866, but had no
children. He remained on the Dugan Texas homestead in Grayson Co. until
his death in 1894. He made George Dugan Frederick Whiting, son of his
sister Emily Dugan, his heir.

George Dugan Frederick Whiting, my grandfather, was born 13 March 1846, to
Emily and her husband, Frederick Parker Whiting. Before he was a year old,
both parents had died of "lung fever." He made his home with the Dugans.
On 19 Dec. 1870, he married Mollie Inge Fitzgerald, daughter of George S.
Fitzgerald and Sarah B. Pritchett.

Dugan descendants still live on the original land-grant.

Dear Mr. Duggan,
 I, too, am trying to nail down my Dugan ancestors of Fayette Co.,PA. I recently spent 4 days in the Uniontown Library geneology room with a very
friendly librarian. However, there are 100's of dugans! (please excuse any spelling/grammatical mistakes)
 So, if you are connected to any of the following names, please let me know and hopefully we can share more information.  My sources are a copy of my great grandmother and my great great aunt's written memories of their families and names found and matched in Fayette Co. proven histories that I read last week.
 I'll try to present this in an organized manner; I am new at this.

My grandmother: Anna Estella White Jackson
 B 1847 in Connellsville, PA
 Married Albert Jackson and lived and died in Yates Center, KN
 Brought to Ft. Leavenworth, KN in 1865 by her widowed mother,
 Margaret Dugan Long, born in 1827 in Connellsville, raised in
Georgetown, KY. Went home and married  HIRAM C. LONG of Fayette Co. in
 Margaret was one of 5 surviving children of MARIA GREGG  and JOHN
DUGAN of Fayette Co.
 Maria Gregg was born in New Haven,Fayette Co., one of 10 surviving
children of THOMAS GREGG, inventor and pioneer settler of the county.
 JOHN DUGAN, I think ?, was one of 11 surviving children of JOHN
DUGAN and CATHERINE MCCLELLAND.  He died in Connellsville and fought with
the 16th Cavalry of the 161st PA Line in the Civil War.
 His father, also JOHN DUGAN, had a brother named ROBERT DUGAN, who was
married to MARGAGET MCCLELLAND, sister of Catherine.
 This is where I can't find any proof beyond an old woman's writings.
 JOHN and ROBERT DUGAN's father was WILLIAM DUGAN who was probably
another early settler to PA. WILLIAM was married to ELLINOR MIDDLETON,
probably of S. Carolina, but they might have lived in VA. Ellinor is
supposedly related to Arthur Middleton , a signer of the Declaration of
 WILLIAM's father was JAMES DUGAN, who came to America before the
Revolution from Ireland, County Armagh or Londonderry, and who married a
 So, is your Robert Dugan the brother of my John Dugan?
 Thank you for answering my inquiry.  Sincerely,   Suzanne Jackson Nash

I was browsing through your Duggan genealogy website.

I'm trying to get more information on my ancestor Michael Duggan born in
1821 in Ireland.  He came to Tennessee as a teenager, married a lady named
Mary.    They had seven children.  After Mary died, Michael bought a farm
three miles southeast of Grannis Arkansas.  He then married Frances Ardena
Hays around 1878.  She was born in 1852.

Their eight children were Rowena Duggan Young, Michael, Robert, Vincent, (
the three oldest boys died of diptheria one winter), and Benjamin (father
of Earl Duggan of Gillham), Susie Elizabeth, Geraldine Duggan Tyree, and
Agnes Duggan Hays. Susie Elizabeth Duggan married John Alexander Bean in
December 1905.  My grandfather Andrew Bailey Bean was born to them in 1906
in Grannis, Polk County Arkansas.

I'm trying to find information about Michael Duggan's ancestors in
Ireland, and about Frances Ardena Hays' parents.

Have found your newsletters fascinating; however, no one seems to have stayed along the East coast in the vicinity of N.J. Does anyone have any
info about Timothy Duggan? All I really know was that he was in the Navy, before he married my grandmother Annie Kelly of South Amboy, N.J.

My father John Joseph Duggan,b 5-6-97, was the younger son of Timothy and Annie Kelly Duggan,he had been preceded by at least two older sisters who
apparently died young and his brother Frank, who had served in the first world war (he was gassed in France) and died in the 1930s; there were also
three younger sisters, Helen Duggan Quinlan,Anna Duggan Goldberg, and Elizabeth(Bess). Pretty sparse, huh?

Kinsman Lyman...

I was very enthusiastic to find the Dugan family page. My name is Celidon
Dugan, and am getting the name changed back to O'Dubhagain soon. I hail
originally from County Donegal, Ireland, and am currently residing in Camp
Verde, Arizona. (There is even a group of our clan here a mile from my
home, living on "Dugan Lane" !!!) The full translation of O'Dubhagain in
the Celtic means "black robed men of the oaks", reflecting our Druidic
heritage, which my branch of the clan has followed for generations. I
myself am a practicing Druid, taught by my father and grandfather. The
shield with the starbursts (not flower petals), and the crescent moon is
the clan's only acknowledged coat-of arms, and in itself shows our Druidic
heritage, as our clan was the only Druidic clan to be acknowledged as
noble, and granted heraldry from the royal court of Tara. I would enjoy
correspondance with you, and invite you to see my website...

Hope to hear from you soon...

Subject:         Do you do Dugans too?

Dear Lyman Duggan,
     I am new to the family geneology scene and am not sure on where to start a search after getting the basic info from family members. I have very few dates and locations, but am hoping some family history will help me make a connection. Any help would be appreciated.
     I am related to the Dugans through my great grandfather, Edwin James McCarthy, from Cambridge, Mass. He married Alice Maude Dugan, from Prince Edward Island, in Cambridge and they then moved to Jersey City, NJ. This had to have been about 1900. Edwin's father was Daniel McCarthy, from Co. Cork, Ireland and arrived through port of entry at Boston. Alice's mother was Elizabeth Diamond, also from Prince Edward Island. I do not know the name of her father. Alice's brother was James Dugan (possibly Joseph, but pretty sure it was James). He served in the Spanish-American War. His claim to fame was as the inventor and president of the NOMA Light Co. From what I understand, the first string of Christmas tree lights on a single wire. "When plugged in the lights would slowly heat up and begin to bubble"? I am not sure what that means and I need to look into it further.
He eventually sold his business, retired and moved to Florida where he invested in the first electrical company to service Florida. He also had the first fully electrical house in that state. He had no children. That is where the trail ends. I have no dates but plenty of family stories and thus, no proof. Any help in dicovering more about this branch of my family would be greatly appreciated. And if there is none, at least I was able to tell a Dugan story.

more at a later date:

  I will send more info as I get it. My grandmother has a journal written by Joseph ( I've been corrected ) Dugan in the attic. It appears he was quite a succsessful and intelligent character. He only recieved a minimal amount of education ( 6th grade) but went on to recieve a honorary degree from Rutgers. From what I have read in the journal, it is old and faded, he was very proud of his accomplishments and wanted to share them with futuregenerations. As I said before, It is unfortunate that he had no heirs. But, then again, that is why his memoirs ended up in the possesion of my great grandmother, Alice, his sister. I am hoping my grandmother will loan this and a few pictures for my research. My father has a medal awarded to him from the Spanish-American War and I also hope to find out what the medal was for. Unfortunately, my family is located in Patterson, NJ and I am in Reno, NV. However, I am hoping to get out there this fall around Thankgiving and will work on that part of the tree then. My father's cousin, Dan, also has a more detailed account of the Dugan/Diamond side of my family. I do know there was a bit of a scandal involved with the marriage of my great grandparents and that is what forced them to leave Massachusettes and Prince Edward Island to New Jersey. It seems that only Joseph stayed close to Alice after that. She came down to Massachusettes for "Patriots' Day", met my great grandfather, wound up pregnant, and married him a few months later. This, of course, was an unforgiveable offense in a Catholic family back then and it has been said that this is what ran them out of town. I am not sure if she was Catholic. Dan has told me she wasn't, and, if true, this would have only compounded the problem. Anyway, I plan on documenting all this when I do get back there and will forward the results on to you. Is it common to vary the spelling of Dugan/Duggan? I never thought to research the name under two g's. Or are
they separate families? This is one of the problems I have run into in other searches. For example, I have researched another side of my family and found variations on the names of the same people ( Bracken/Brackin and Honeyman/Hunneman ).

Until then, I am looking forward to finding long, lost relatives and thank-you for the help, Edwin Jame McCarthy, IV

1945 in Queens, NY and DELIA MALLOY DUGGAN (aka Theresa Duggan) b. in
Ireland, 4/1/1880 and died in NYC  July 11, 1966.  Martin's parents (my
Gr. grandparents) were JOSEPH DUGGAN and CATHERINE COAN DUGGAN.  Delia's
parents were MARK MALLOY and JULIA O'FLAHERTY MALLOY.  All were born in
Ireland, but I do not have the dates.  My grandparents, immigrated to
Mass. and lived with NELLIE MALLOY prior to migrating to NY.  Here they
lived on PEARL ST, NY,NY; then moved to ASTORIA NY; and then to MYRTLE
AVE. & 83RD ST., in GLENDALE; and then to 85th St., in GLENDALE.  They
lived in RICHMOND HILL NY (across from Richmond Hill HS in 1938) and after
my parents bought their first house, my grandmother lived above us @ 74-33

My mother had five brothers, WILLIAM; MARTIN; JAMES; JOHN and JAMES.
James died in infancy and the remaining brother all are deceased.

I am hoping to find out where my grandfather and grandmother were born in Ireland, and any other interesting facts.

I hope that this information is useful to someone.

I just found your web looks wonderful so far...but verrry
lengthy. I'm currently trying to research my family ancestry and although
I'm having some luck on the Rasco side...I've not had much luck on the
Dugan side just yet.  My great-grandmother was Annie Melzine Dugan, born
May 1, 1902, married to James Warren Rasco on Aug 29, 1920.  She died Sept
24, 1970. They had three children, Billy James "Buster" Rasco, Hazel
Louise, and Alma Lee.  Hazel was my grandmother.  I also believe my
great-great-grandfather (Annie's father) was William Dugan.  My family is
predominantly from the Central Texas area, around San Antonio and Bexar
county.  I'm still trying to find out if any other family members know any
more details about my great-grandmother.  If you have any information...I
would greatly appreciate your help.  I went through several of your
newletters, but could find no reference to my family.

Hi Lyman,another Duggan/Dugan bit o'info for you. I was told to start with what i have so here goes name is Margaret Dugan.
I come from a family of 11 Dugans here in New York. My parents John Dugan and Dolores (Danahy)were married approximately 1950(?).
My fathers parents ,Hugh Duggan and Margaret(Cannon) immigrated in around 1920 or possibly a little earlier (I do not know if they arrived as husband or wife). Hugh was born in April of 1901, he died in 1967. Margaret died young (approx1955) from a bursted appendix.Hugh and margaret had 4 Children:

-Shelia (married Joe Keane) last known to reside in Queens Ny.
-John (my Dad) born 3-15-30 died 1-2-70,
-Maureen (nicknamed Mimi married unknown)and
-Daniel(probably in his late 50's presently.

Here is my family info to pass along perhaps it will strike a note with someone and they could assist me as well.

If you know of any other ideas to assist me in my research i would appreciate that as well -Thank you.  peg

Subject:         Looking for Charles J. Dugan

Greetings from Chicago!  While researching my Kelly ancestors on the
Internet, I recently came across your Duggan/Dugan/O'Duggan Newsletter #5.
 One of your correspondents, Charles J. Dugan (pg. 5, Newsletter #5) noted
in a 1995 letter that his paternal grandmother, Sarah Kelly, was raised in
New Hope, Penn.

Based on this bit of information, I suspect I am probably a third cousin
of Charles J. Dugan on his Kelly side of the family.  I've been
researching the New Hope Kellys and would be glad to share my findings
with Mr. Dugan if you could provide me with his mailing address or e-mail

Of course, if it is more convenient, you may simply inform Mr. Dugan of my
mailing address -- 1423 W. Jonquil Terrace #2, Chicago, IL  60626.
Alternately, he can reach me via e-mail at or by phone,
(773)381-1879.  I can probably help him fill in some blanks in his Kelly
line and, who knows, in the past five years maybe he's developed info on
the New Hope Kellys that I don't have!

Thanks very much....     Michael I. Kelly

From:            "Sheila Netherwood" <>

hi there lyman, just been browing the "duggan"site with much interest,
although all the duggans on your site seem to be from the states, I
believe my ancestors originated in Ireland, emigrated to the Isle of Man,
and as far as I know are still there.

My name is Joan Sheila Duggan (now Netherwood) my father William Henry
Duggan, his father Thomas Edward Duggan who was lost at Dunkirk in 1942
(just before I was born) married Eleanor ? from Ballabeg on the Isle of
Man.  I have 2 half brothers William Edward and Frank Duggan, Frank Duggan
married Vivian Ventura back in 1968 (Vivian Ventura being a movie starlet
in the 60's).

Not much else to report here, but just maybe I can locate my heritage
through you.

Subject:         Theadore Dugan

Much help would be appreciated with the following Dugans.

Theadore Dugan married Nancy Hawk in mid 1800's (I believe somewhere in
Missouri).  Of this union, one son for sure:  George J. Dugan (born
09/04/1873 - died 07/03/1951).

On Nov. 9, 1898 in St. Luke, Missouri, George J. Dugan married Sarah E.
Nimmo (born April 25, 1873 - died 02/04/1944).  Sarah's parents were John
S. Nimmo and Amanda King.

The union of George J. and Sarah E. produced eight children:

Dempsey E. Dugan (b. 11/07/1900) married Rosie Dalton
Audrey I Dugan (b. 10/25/1903 d. 07/13/1977) married Joe Danields
Gayford G. Dugan (b. 11/12/1905 d. 08/03/1976) married Elsie Quicqley (1st

married Ruby Smith (2nd wife)
Erma A. Dugan (b. 05/13/1907 d. 05/25/1910)
Velma A. Dugan (b. 06/29/909) married Jim Petty
Luther J. Dugan (b. 02/14/1911 d. 11/24/1963) married Margie Smith
Guy T. Dugan (b. 08/27/1912 d. 10/16/1980) married Maudie Lines
Brent W. Dugan (b. 03/28/1914) married Ruth Detherow

This information is right out of the Family Bible.  Hope it helps someone!

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.

For a very good example, see "Descendants of William DUGGAN-51 First Generation" at:
