Nuckols -Bowles and Nuckols -Duggins

I am still not sure who are the parents of Mary Elizabeth Nuckols, who married Patrick Henry Duggins about 1862 in Goochland or Hanover Co., Va. But I do know she is not the same Mary Elmira Duggins who was the widow of Boldman Hugo Bowles, regardless of the insistence of so many Nuckols researchers. WITNESS:
1870 census of Hanover Co., Va., Upper Revenue District,Ancestry Image 239 of 415.
308 308 Duggins, Patrick 40
" Mary 30
" Granville 14
" Samuel 9 (these two boys are sons of Patrick and his first wife, Lucy Jane Ford)
" Eugene (Eugenia) 7
" John 5
" James 2 (James was my husband's Grandfather)

THEN!! A few pages further along, same place, etc. you will find:
1806 1813 Duggins, Mary E. 40
Bowles, Deacon 20
" Boldman 18
" Mana 16 (Martha Virginia)
" Annie E. 14
" Susan L 12
" George W. Doswell 10

Now ---I really don't think the same Mary ran from house to house adding and subtracting 10 years in age on a regular basis. This widow Bowles/Duggins obviously married a Duggins. But NOT Patrick Henry Duggins.

If any of you have the wrong information in your data bases, will you PLEASE make the changes!! I would certainly appreciate it and will gladly receive any clues to our Mary's real parentage.

I am sending this to the Nuckols, Nuckolls, Bowles and Duggins lists. Thanks for your support.
