Parts of the family lore stories contained in the Putnam Co., IN History in the Biographical section are not true. Edward Nugent who is in the DAR Index was born in King George Co., VA before 1727 (exact date not certain). Edward Nugent was given Patriot status because he donated 3-3/4 gal. of brandy to the troops. The Putnam Co. History and the DAR Index say Edward's wife was Elizabeth Conway. Extensive research indicates it is 99 & 44/100% certain that Elizabeth Nugent was daughter of Charles and Ann Darnall Garner.
Edward Newgent who had the 1726 Land Grant in King George Co. was the father of Edward listed in the DAR Index. This land was in Fauquier Co. when Elizabeth Robbins received her division of dower in 1796.
