  of 5

James T. Riggins, B 6 Jan 1793 Beaufort Dist. (not county), SC, D 17 Feb 1879 Pierce Co., GA
Cynthia ___, B 11 Feb 1800, D 17 Oct 1867
Married circa 1815-1816
Moved to Ware County, GA (became Pierce County, GA in 1858) in 1849

Known childrenóWilliam Jasper Riggins (B 1817, D 1889 in Blackshear, GA; m. Mary Lugg, daughter of John Lugg, and had children John, Jane (B 1843; m. Roland Sweat), William E. (B circa 1845 in SC; m. 1. Jane James, 2. Mary Tuten), James (B
circa 1849 in SC), Ransom (B 1848 in GA, D 1912; m. Rachel Minchew, daughter of John Minchew), Rebecca (B circa 1852; m. James J. Lewis), Eliza (B circa 1855), and Theodicia (B circa 1858 in GA; m. Newton Highsmith on 21 Aug 1877)).

1820 Federal Census, Beaufort District (not County), SC; James Riggins, 1 male under 10, 1 male 10-16, 1 male 16-25, 1 female under 10, 1 female 16-26.

1860 Federal Census, Pierce Co., GA, page 38; James T. Riggins, 67, born SC, farmer, personal value of $150, Cynthia 58, born GA, couple can read and write.

1860 Federal Census, District #9, Blackshear P.O., Pierce Co., GA; Jasper Riggins 38, born SC, Mary 35, born SC, William 15, James 11, Ransom 9, Rebecca 8, Elizar 5, Theodora 2.

John Lugg was closer to the coast in 1810 in St. Helena Parish, Beaufort District (not county), SC with wife and children. In the 1820 Federal Census, John Lugg had moved up the Coosawhatchie River toward modern-day Hampton County, SC, between 16 and 26 years of age (same for wife) lived in Prince William's Parish, the same parish as the Riggins family, Beaufort District (not county), SC. Of note, the 1820 census shows the couple had one daughter under 10 (could have been six months old for all we know)--could likely be Mary who married William Jasper Riggins. The 1830 Federal Census for Prince William's Parish, Beaufort District (not county), SC showed the following:

John Lugg, 1 male 30-40
wife, 16-26 [probably closer to age 26 by now]
1 male under 5
1 male 5-10
2 females under 5
1 female 5-10 [this could be Mary born in late 1819 or very early 1820--under a year, but not quite at the next birthday]

1850 Federal Census, 23 Sep 1850, Prince William's Parish, Beaufort District, SC, #82; John Lugg, 51, teacher, Jane 50, Holoday 20, Abner 12, Sarah 10, Amanda 8.

1860 Federal Census, 12 Jun 1860, Blackshear P.O.; John Lugg, 61, farmer, no real estate, personal property valued at $105, born SC, Jane, 59, born SC, John, 38, farm laborer--on either side of Yeoman (Youman) families.

Has anyone adequately studied the Lugg family in detail--to include arrival to South Carolina? The Luggs are not my line--just posted to aid others in their research.
