Cherokee County History, pub. by Cherokee Co. Historical Society in Jacksonville, TX, has a good amount of info on the BUGG family in that area.

Mentioned are: Willis Lemuel BUGG I who was born 1817 in GA (son of Nancy and Billiam BUGG). He married Caroline Jane EIDOM (daughter of John and Caroline EIDOM) in MISS on 2/11/1836. Both families moved to Knoxville, Cherokee Co., TX, in the 1850's.

Next mentioned is the family lineage as recorded in Magna Charta, Part III, by John S. WURTS. The lineage includes John Fitzrobert, Hugh Fitzjohn, Sir John of Eure, John of Eure (Evre), and Ralph of Eure.

The book goes on to mention the tombs of Samuel BUGG, Deborah Sherwood BUGG, Edmund BACON, and Colonel George LYDDALL. According to the same paragraph, the BUGG family is supposedly related to Queen Elizabeth II, George WASHINGTON, and Gereral Robert E. LEE. It tells where they worshipped and describes the church.

We go on to Sherwood BUGG (son of Sarah BACON and Samuel BUGG II) b. 1720 VA and d. 1782 GA. He married 1745 to Elizabeth HOBSON (daughter of Nicholas HOBSON). His children included Nicholas and Sherwood II. Sherwood II m. Sara ? and had two children named Peter V. and Sara. Elizabeth HOBSON BUGG's will also named Obedience who m. James MARTIN.

There is mention of a Bible record naming Sherwood BUGG b. 1720; his wife Elizabeth HOBSON d. 1799; a son Edmund BUGG d. 1782.

Edmund BUGG I, b. around 1746 VA, d. 1720 GA, m. Obedience FILBINE. Their children (according to his will): William, Edmund, Jeremiah, Samuel, Sally Lamar, Polly, gradson Basil Lamar, and his wife, Obedience.

There are photos of Jeffie Lee BUGG, John Randolph BUGG and wife Cynthia Jane FRANCIS, Willis Lemuel BUGG III and wife Lillie Mae LANGSTON, Elray BUGG and wife Mary Katherine AYERS, William Bradford BUGG and wife Mildred Alice WEBB, The Willis Lemuel BUGG IV family, and a group photo that includes sons of John Randolph BUGG and Hiram BUGG: Arthur, Walter, Willis Hiram, Adolphus Love, Willis Lemuel III, and Will Braly BUGG. Willis Hiram was the son of Hiram BUGG. There is also a photo of the William Bradford BUGG family lot in Oakwood Cemetery in Austin, TX, and another one of the state marker placed in memory of Willis Lemuel BUGG I in the Troup Cemetery in Troup, TX, and another one of Samuel BUGG's tomb in St. Peter's Parish Church, New Kent Co, VA. Samuel BUGG's family were founders of the church.

I really hope this information helps someone in the forum. I don't see how it helps me at the present time as I have not had a great deal of time to spend on my BUGG side of my family history. ENJOY!! Lisa
