I am looking for the parents and siblings of my ancestors JOHN PUGH (born about 1798 in Orange County, North Carolina and died October 14, 1874, in Carroll County) and his wife DIDAMY SCOGGINS/SCROGGINS (born about 1796 in North Carolina and died August 15, 1886, in Carroll County). John served at age 64 (!) as a private in the 7th Tennessee Cavalry Regiment USA. According to John Pugh’s and his widow’s Union Army pension applications they were married October 1817 in Jackson County, Georgia. The 1820 Jackson County, GA, census has John Pugh living next door to a Benjamin Scoggins the correct age to be the father of Didamy. The only Pugh in Jackson County old enough to be the father of John was a Sampson Pugh. Was John Pugh a son of Sampson Pugh? Was Didamy Scoggins a daughter of Benjamin Scoggins? Who were their siblings, mothers, and grandparents ? I would be grateful for any help you might be able to give me.
