I have a copy of the marriage license for JAMES KENDRICK and ELIZABETH TUGGLE, dated the 29th. day of May, 1832. WILLIAM TUGGLE was the surety for this marriage. I know that this WILLIAM TUGGLE was the WILLIAM WALKER TUGGLE that was born in Prince Edward County, Virginia during the mid-1780's and lived in Pittsylvania County, Virginia during 1820 and 1830 census of virginia. He moved to Patrick County just after 1830. I really don't think that this ELIZABETH TUGGLE was the daughter of WILLIAM WALKER TUGGLE, but that she was possibly and probably the daughter of JAMES TUGGLE and NANCY MORRIS TUGGLE, who were married in 1796 in Prince Edward County, Virginia. This JAMES TUGGLE was a brother to WILLIAM WALKER TUGGLE. This would have made her a niece to WILLIAM WALKER TUGGLE. WILLIAM WALKER TUGGLE was the surety for several marriages in Pittsylvania County, Virginia before moving into Patrick County. It appears that NANCY MORRIS TUGGLE possibly died before 1830, for on March 5th., 1830 JAMES TUGGLE married MECCA FRANCIS in Patrick County, Virginia. MECCA FRANCIS TUGGLE must have died before August 1st., 1832, for JAMES TUGGLE married SARAH KENDRICK on this date in Patrick County. I have a copy of the marriage bond, which shows JAMES TUGGLE as a 'Jr.', which I question. It may have been stated as such since there was another JAMES TUGGLE in Patrick County at that time. JAMES and WILLIAM WALKER TUGGLE were the sons of JOHN W. TUGGLE and SARAH ANDERSON of Prince Edward County, Virginia. JAMES TUGGLE was living with his wife SALLY (nickname for SARAH) TUGGLE in Wythe County, Virginia in 1850. He died before 1860. JAMES TUGGLE was much older that SARAH KENDRICK. It appears that ELIZABETH KENDRICK may have been a sister to your JAMES KENDRICK. I have that they were the children of OSBORNE KENDRICK, who had also lived in Pittsylvania County, Virginia before moving into Patrick County, Virginia.
I hope this helps.
I am interested in knowing who the SARAH ELIZABETH TUGGLE was that married your JAMES JACKSON KENDRICK. What can you tell me about her and about their marriage and children.
I am a descendent of WILLIAM WALKER TUGGLE and his wife HANNAH, through their son, JOHN MORRIS TUGGLE and his wife MARTHA ANN MCGHEE TUGGLE.
I look forward to hearing from you.
