CHARLESTON SC. SHIPBUILDER 1880
Posted by: Samantha (ID *****1227) Date: October 29, 2009 at 00:42:48
  of 222

Can anyone help with this? I have an 1880 census with the following information -

Diegnan spelled differently in various censuses.
Duignan, Dignan, Degnan

Family of Charles Diegnan- age 53- Shipbuilder- b. SC- parents b. Ireland
Eliza -wife- age 45-b. SC- father b. Spain- mother born SC
Matilda-daughter- age 13.
In the 1870 census- daughters Rebecca age 17-Pauline- age 9 and Matilda age 3.

In 1860 there was also a son Francis age 13.

The Diegnan family had their own Ship buiding business in Charleston in the 1888 Charleston Directory.

On this 1880 census the following are living with them -
Charleston, Ward no. 5
They are living on Tenth Street

John G. Campbell age 27 b. SC- Plumber- mother b. Ireland.
wife Emily L. age 21 b. SC-
Duleka Campbell age 13- sister of John
Charles Campbell- b. Jan 1880 age 5 months- son.

John G. Campbell is listed as his son in law- so that should make Emily L. Charles Diegnan's daughter.

I guess here I am looking for EMILY DIEGNAN, that would be my Great Grandmother - I have had no luck whatsoever in locating this family and I have not seen this census personally, come to think of it - no luck with CAMPBELL either.

Where would I find Shipbuilders in Charleston in 1880??
Any clues, hints or ideas would be more than welcome!!

Much thanks,
Samantha
