Notes for LODOWICK TUGGLE:

In 1769 Lodowick sold his plantation in Middlesex Co where his family had lived for about 100 years. He moved to Prince Edward Co. And in April of 1776 he moved to Pittsylvania Co VA. while there he served he served as a high officer in the Revolutionary War. Around 1791, they moved to Oglethorpe Co Georgia. This was near the area Esther, sister of Dorothy and her family lived.

In 1825, Greene, Hancock, Oglethorpe, Warren and Wilkes Counties were all combined to create what is now Taliaferro County, Georgia.

"THE TUGGLE FAMILY OF VIRGINIA" by Vivian Tuggle states, pg 33-36:

"Lodowick Tuggle, b. Middlesex Co.,VA, 14 Sept 1741, bapt 4 Oct 1741, died in Oglethorpe Co., GA between 23 Sept and 20 Oct 1798, m in Middlesex County, 1 Oct 1765, Dorothy Lee.

On 7 March 1769, he sold the plantation inherited from his father to Richard Bristow, (9 Middlesex Deeds 57) and moved to Prince Edward County. There he bought 100 acres from Andrew Wallace on 18 June 1770 described as being "on both sides of Falling Creek of the north side of Buffalo River". (4 PE Deeds 146). On 5 Nov 1771 he purchased 245 acres from Dabney Pettus described as "being on the north side of Buffalo River beginning at Wallace's corner in Bauldwin line." (4 PE Deeds 237). Lodowick conveyed 90 acres of his boundary to Philemon Bird (a brother-in-law who marred Mary Lee) 20 July 1772 (5 PE Deeds 197). He resided in Prince Edwrd until 1776 when he disposed of his property by three separate conveyances, all dated 19 February. Williamson Bird purchased 40 acres (5 PE Deeds 527), Philemon Bird 40 acres (6 PE Deeds 76), and John Holecombe 171 acres "being the place the said Tuggle now lives on." (6 PE Deeds 134).

Lodowick and Dorothy at once moved to Pittsylvania County and on 28 April 1776 bought 400 acres on Turkey Cock Creek, "including the mill" from George Jefferson, (5 Pitt.Deeds 67). A land grant for 175 acres "on the south side of Pigg River, beginning at Francis Kerby's Corner beech" was issued to him 1 Sept. 1780, (E Va. Land Grants 523). On 2 April 1784 he had surveyed a tract containing 296 acres "on Pigg River and Snow Creek beginning at his corner" and calling for Jefferson's line on the north and Peter Finney's line on the south (2 Va. Land Grants 61). Lodowick obtained a Land Officers Treasury Warrant on 9 June 1783 for 250 acres which was surveyed 20 April 1785, described as being on the branches of Turkey Cock Creek and "beginning at the said Tuggle's corner maple" (16 Va. Land Grants 82). He had also purchased shortly after arriving in Pittsylvania, on 26 Sept 1776, a bounty of 100 acres from Garrett, (4 PE Deeds 245).

Lodowick was a Lieutenant in the Pittsylvania Militia during the Revolutionary War. An order under date of 23 Oct 1777 appears at 4 Pittsylvania Orders 40, reciting that.
"Lodowick Tuggle, Gent., produced his commission as a Lieutenant in the Militia and took the oath by law prescribed."

On 18 June 1787 he filed his commission form the Governor and qualified as a Captain of the Pittsylvania Militia, (5 Pitt. Orders 494). He was still a Captain in the Militia in 1789, as is shown by reference in 4 Calendar if Virginia State Papers 646.

He took an active part in the government of Pittsylvania County. On 21 Nov 1780, he was accepted as one of four sureties on a bond of thirty thousand pounds to Thomas Jefferson as Governor to insure the collection of the county revenues by Crispin Shelton, (6 PE Orders 72).

In 1782, he was one of five sureties on the official bond of Abraham Shelton, then Sheriff. The Journal of the Council of the State of Virginia under date of 18 June 1783 recites that Lodowick Tuggle, Gentleman, was appointed to the Commission of the Peace and Oyer and Terminer for the County of Pittsylvania, (5 Pitt. Orders 6). He was one of the Commissioners that laid out the Town of Cooksburg in 1788, (12 Hening 659). The Vestry Book of Cambden Parish disclosed that beginning in 1782 and for some years thereafter he was a Vestryman of that Parish, (63 Vestry Book of Cambden Parish 1767-1852)...

...A Middlesex Court Order states that "Lodowick Tuggle, Gent. married Dorothy Lee, Spinster, Oct 1, 1765" (7 Wm. & Mary Quarterly 192; Middlesex Marriages Records (1740-1854, pg 16). The witnesses were John George and John Stringer. Dorothy Lee, wife of Lodowick, b. 31 March 1749, was a daughter of George Lee (1715-1757) who was married, 4 Dec 1737, to Mary Buford. George Lee was a son of Charles Lee (1683-1720) whose wife was named Dorothy. The father of Charles was Thomas Lee whose wife was named Elizabeth. Charles Lee, a brother of Dorothy (Lee) Tuggle, was Sheriff of Middle sex County in 1783, (44 Va. Mag. of History & Biog. 75).

Lodowick had been baptized, reared and married in the Anglican Church and was a member of the Vestry of Cambden Parish in Pittsylvania, but became active in the Presbyterian Church

In a historical sketch of New Hope Church in Oglethorpe in the Southern Presbyterian (1787) it is stated: "The Rev. John Newton was installed by the Presbytery of South Carolina as pastor of Bethany and New Hope about 1788. It appears that Allen Leeper, Lodowick Tuggle, and William Appleby were the first Elders...At the first meeting of Hopewell Presbytery in 1797 there were three Elders present as appears from the first Minutes, Ezekiel Gilham, Jacob Darrah, and Lodowick Tuggle..."

His will dated 23 Sept 1798 probated 20 Oct 1798, is of record in Oglethorpe Will Book "A" at page 80, and reads in part:

"My will and desire is, that I have give my four sons part of my estate, that they give a true account of what they have received and that it may be considered and counted as my estate, and then my will is that the whole of my estate be equally divided between all of my children. My will further is that the land I now live on be not sold, but be kept and remain as a home for my children until my youngest child, Nancy Tuggle, comes of age, then to be sold and divided amongst all of my children.

My will further is that the land I had of Charles Brooks and what else of my estate my executors shall think best to be sold, that they sell it and divide the same among them. But my Negroes, I do not allow to be sold, but equally divided among my children, viz: Goerge, Robert, Thomas, William, Sally, Eunice, Savannah, Catherine, Elizabeth and Nancy Tuggle, as soon as my Executors can, the division of my estate is to be, and I herby constitute and appoint my two oldest sons, George Tuggle and Robert Tuggle and Philemon Bird, Executors of this my last will and Testament."

Generation No. 5

5. ROBERT5 TUGGLE (LODOWICK4, THOMAS3, HENRY2, THOMAS1 (TUGWELL)TUGGLE) was born 1767 in VA, and died 1835 in Jasper County GA. He married ELIZABETH JEFFRIES 05 April 1799 in Oglethorp Co GA, daughter of WILLIAM JEFFRIES and ESTHER LEE. She was born 1777 in VA, and died 1854 in Jasper County GA.

Robert and Elizabeth had lived in Jasper County, Georgia at one time. This information comes from, The Columbus Enquirer-Issue, 5 Feb 1850, in a notice about the death of their son, Lee Tuggle.

On December 14, 1797 Robert Tuggle bought 500 acres of land in Greene County from Jane and Charles Crawford, Sr., of Columbia County.

Robert Tuggle paid his taxes on 261 acres of land, in Greene County, in 1801. In June 1802 Robert served as a juror in Greene county On January 7, 1807 Robert signed as a witness when George Jeffries sold a slave, Stephen, to Britton Huckeby for $600.

On March 12, 1808 Robert Tuggle sold to Thomas Lyne 34 acres of land on the south side of Stewart's Creek in Greene County. This was part of a tract of land, that Robert was serving as the administrator, which belonged to the estate of Lodowick Tuggle, for $103.50.

On February 8, 1809, as the administrator of Lodowick's estate, Robert sold 100 acres of land on Shirley Creek to Thomas Jeffries, my ancestor, for $100.

On December 10, 1811 Robert Tuggle sold 100 acres of land on Sherrell's Creek in Greene County to Armistead Atkinson.

On December 12, 1817 Robert Tuggle bought 202 acres of land on Murder Creek in Jasper County. This was about the same time Elizabeth's four brothers all move to this same general area.

On February 26, 1818 he sold 314 acres of land in Greene County for almost the same amount of money, $1,000, he gave for the Jasper County land he bought.

The 1820 Jasper County Census listed the following family:
Robert Tuggle 45, Elizabeth Tuggle 26-45, two sons 16-26, one son 16-18, two sons and three daughters 0-10 years.

One of their sons, Lee Tuggle, had already married and he and his wife were listed as 16-26, and they had a son 0-10 years old. This census also showed Robert owned 14 slaves at this time.

On February 5, 1828 Robert sold seven slaves to the executors of William James' estate for $1,136.12, but the bill of sale said that if Robert repaid the loan in one day the sale would be canceled. Swepston C. Jeffries witnessed this sale, in Taliaferro County.

On February 20, 1829 Swepston C. Jeffries testified in court that he and George West saw Robert Tuggle sign a deed with the executors of William James' estate on February 5, 1828.

In the 1830 Jasper County Census Robert Tuggle was listed as 60-70, and Elizabeth as 50-60 years old. Living in their household at this time was one son 20-30, two daughters 15-20, one son 10-15, and two daughter's 0-10 years old.

Robert Tuggle died in Jasper County in 1835. His sons, Lee and Thomas, qualified as the administrators of Robert's estate. Bond Book C, of Jasper County, on page 108, shows that the administrators had an inventory made and paid a bond of $12,000 for security.

Book 11, of Jasper County, on January 26, 1836 shows the sale of the estate's property

The same book on page 47 shows that the sale of the slaves was held on the first Tuesday, April 5, 1836. Those buying some of the slaves were: T.H. Tuggle, W.J.L. Tuggle, Catherine Tuggle, Mary B. Tuggle, Lee Tuggle, J.H. Tuggle, Elizabeth Tuggle, and Colby Jackson for a total of $5,958.

Bond Book C, of Jasper County, on page 125, shows that Thomas H. Tuggle and Jephtha Dismukes were bound by the Jasper County Inferior Court for $4,000 on March 7, 1836 as Thomas was appointed guardian of William, Francis, and Rebecca Tuggle, orphans of Robert Tuggle.

In the same book, on page 165, shows that Thomas H. Tuggle, William J. L. Tuggle, and Elizabeth Tuggle were bound for $1, 650 on March 6, 1837 as Elizabeth Tuggle was appointed guardian of Rebecca Tuggle, orphan. Thomas had asked to be relieved of this responsibility.

In the May term of the 1837 Court of Ordinary, on page 123, the court said Thomas H. and Lee Tuggle said they had fulfilled their responsibility as administrators of Robert Tuggle's estate and asked to be relieved of this responsibility. The court ordered that any objections be made in the next term of court in January.

Notes for ELIZABETH JEFFRIES:

In the 1840 Jasper County Census Elizabeth Tuggle was listed as 50-60 years old, and in her household she had a daughter and a son 20-30, one daughter 15-20, and a daughter 10-15 years old. Will Book 12, on page 422, for July 12, 1842 shows that Catherine Tuggle gave her mother, Elizabeth, her slave, Rachel, and Rachel's three children.

The 1850 Jasper County Census listed Elizabeth as 62 years old and living in her household was Amanda Tuggle, who was 21 years old. Still living in Jasper County, with families of their own were two sons Benjamin F. Tuggle and William Jeffries Lodowick Tuggle. (This last name was interesting to me. It seems as if Elizabeth and Robert covered all bases with their fathers.) The slave census of Jasper County for 1850 shows that Elizabeth owned eight slaves and her son William Jeffries Lodowick Tuggle owned nine slaves.

The 1850 Agricultural Schedule of Jasper County shows Elizabeth Tuggle owned 40 acres of land valued at $300 and had livestock valued at $200.

Elizabeth (Jeffries) Tuggle died in Jasper County

in 1854. Her will left her son, William Jeffries Lodowick Tuggle nine slaves and the executor of her will.

Her will was written on February 1, 1854 and says:

Notes for JOHN W. SMITH:

On October 24, 1845 George W. Johnson, a schoolteacher of Chambers County, Alabama brought a case into the Troup County, Georgia court against Thomas Tuggle and John W. Smith for assaulting him in the spring of 1842. The 1960 census shows a John W. Smith lived in Troup County and another John W. Smith lived in the adjoining county of Meriwether. (I believe one of these was the father of the other, but I have not read the censuses yet, and I do not know which county this John W. Smith lived in.)

6. WILLIAM5 TUGGLE (LODOWICK4, THOMAS3, HENRY2, THOMAS1 (TUGWELL)TUGGLE) was born 17 April 1777 in VA, and died Bet. 1803 - 1868. He married ANNA DUNN 09 December 1797 in Oglethorpe Co, GA.

Child of WILLIAM TUGGLE and ANNA DUNN is:
15. i. WILLIAM JR6 TUGGLE, b. Greene Co GA.

7. CATHERINE5 TUGGLE (LODOWICK4, THOMAS3, HENRY2, THOMAS1 (TUGWELL)TUGGLE) was born 1781, and died Bet. 1804 - 1875. She married GEORGE JEFFRIES 18 December 1798 in Oglethorpe Co, GA, son of WILLIAM JEFFRIES and ESTHER LEE. He was born Bet. 1775 - 1780 in King And Queen Co, VA, and died Bet. 1845 - 1850 in Baker County GA.

Notes for GEORGE JEFFRIES:

In 1799 George paid taxes on two slaves in Greene County. When George's future father-in-law, Lodowick Tuggle, died on October 20, 1798 George and his brother, Thomas Jeffries, served as witnesses to his will.

In 1801 George paid his taxes in the Owen District, on the Oconee River, in Greene County on 150 acres of land and five slaves.

George served as a juror in Greene County in 1801, 1803, 1804, and 1805. In 1805 and 1809, and probably other years, George paid his taxes in the Watt' District of Greene County. On January 4, 1805 George and his brother, William Jeffries, Jr., applied for the Letters of Administration for William Jeffries, Sr.'s state. It is believed their mother, Esther, had just died. Greene County Book E, on page 385, shows the total value of the estate was $4,883 of which $4,605 was the value of the slaves.

Between this deed of September 24, 1811 and the following record, which took place on February 26, 1810 George moved his family to Morgan County, Georgia. His brothers and sister moved their families to the Jasper/Newton County area around 1815 and it is believed George move to Morgan County at the same time. Since the area they lived in has Morgan Jasper /and Newton counties joining similar to a T, and the area they all lived in was near the adjoining point, they could all have lived in different counties, but still be within a mile, or two, of each other.

The 1820 Morgan County Census listed George and Catherine as both being over 45 years of age. These may, or may not, have all been their children, but living in their household at that time were the following: a male and a female 26-45, a male 16-26, a female and two males 10-16, and three females and a male 0-10 years old.

On July 9, 1825 George's son, Swepston C. Jeffries, was listed in the Hillsboro Militia District of Jasper County.

The 1830 Taliaferro County Census listed George as 50-60 years old, and Catherine as 30-40. Living in their household they had a son 20-30, a son 15-20, a son and a daughter 10-15, and a daughter 5-10 years old.

The 1840 Baker County Census listed George as 50-60 years old (These censuses were not taken at the same time each year.), and Catherine as 40-50. They had a son 30-40, a son and a daughter 20-30, a daughter 10-15, and a son, or grandson, under 5 years old living in their household.

George Jeffries was still living and listed on the 1845 Baker County Tax Digest, but he had died before the 1850 Baker County Census was taken.

The 1850 Baker County Census included the following family:
Catherine (Tuggle) Jeffries 65, James Jeffries 40 (son), Mos Penny (Price) Jeffries 25, Mary Jeffries 13, James Jeffries, Jr. 9, Benjamin Jeffries 9, James Swepston Jeffries 2/12, Julia Ann (Jeffries) Long 25 (daughter), Crawford W. Long 5, and Jane Long 3 years old.

Children of CATHERINE TUGGLE and GEORGE JEFFRIES are:

8. NANCY5 TUGGLE (LODOWICK4, THOMAS3, HENRY2, THOMAS1 (TUGWELL)TUGGLE) was born 1787 in VA, and died Aft. 1860 in AL. She married WILLIAM III JEFFRIES 24 October 1806 in GA, son of WILLIAM JEFFRIES and ESTHER LEE. He was born 1773, and died Bet. 1850 - 1852 in Jasper Co., GA. Notes for NANCY TUGGLE:

On September 20, 1852 Nancy (Tuggle) Jeffries, William's widow, sold 135 acres of land on Bear Creek, in Newton County, to Matthew Whitfield, for $500. Nancy then move to Chambers County, Alabama with the slaves and their other belongings.

Notes for WILLIAM III JEFFRIES:

William Jeffries, Jr., oldest son of William and Esther (Lee) Jeffries, was born in King and Queen County, Virginia in 1773. He came to Georgia with his brothers and sister in 1791, after his mother and father had already moved here, and following his father's death.

The 1794 Tax Digest of Warren County listed William just below his mother's name. This shows he was 21 years old and he had to pay a poll tax. This was paid in Captain Bunkley's District, on the Bass and Dismukes Waters, of the Ogeechee River.

In 1798 and 1799 William paid taxes on ten slaves and 500 acres of land on the Little River in Greene County.

In 1800, 1801, 1805, and probably 1803 and 1804, William paid his taxes in the Owen District of Greene County, on 309 acres of oak lands on Little Creek.

In June 1800 and January 1803 William served as a Greene County juror.

On November 23, 1803 William furnished the security needed when his brother, Thomas married Elizabeth Morris in Greene County.

William and his brother, George, applied for the Letters of Administration of William Jeffries, Sr.'s estate on July 18, 1804.

In 1804 William paid taxes on eight slaves and land on William's Creek in Greene County.

On December 10, 1805 William Jeffries, Jr. and George Bird were witnesses as Job Bird, of Greene County, sold 60 acres of land in the county to Joseph Catching for $300.

William Jeffries, Jr. married Nancy Tuggle, his first cousin, in Greene County on October 24, 1806.

On March 4, 1808 William sold 130 acres of land on the Little River, in Greene County, to Sherwood Wilkinson for $450. This was recorded in the Taliaferro County Deed Book B, after the county was created.

William bought some land in Jasper County on July 27, 1815. William's brother, Lee Jeffries, who had land next to Jacob's plantation, witnessed the bill of sale.

On January 15, 1817 William sold 65 acres of land, in Jasper County, to William Evans for $375.

The 1820 Jasper County Census listed William as owning seven slaves, and his family included: William who was listed as being over 45 years of age, Nancy who was 26-45, two daughters who were 10-16, and two sons and two daughters who were 0-10 years of age.

It is believed William moved his family from near Shady Dale, in Jasper County to near Bear Creek, in Newton County in 1827. In September 1827 Nancy (Tuggle) Jeffries was dismissed, moved, or was removed from the membership roll of Providence Baptist Church of Shady Dale.

When William died around 1850, Nancy sold his land on Bear Creek. They could have still gone to Providence Baptist Church, but it would have been a long distance in the horse and buggy days, and they would have passed by many other Baptist churches.

The 1830 Jasper County Census listed William as 50-60 years of age, Nancy as 40-50, two daughters 20-30, two daughters and a son 15-20, and a son 10-15 years old living in the household.

On September 20, 1852 Nancy (Tuggle) Jeffries, William's widow, sold 135 acres of land on Bear Creek, in Newton County, to Matthew Whitfield, for $500. Nancy then move to Chambers County, Alabama with the slaves and their other belongings.

He served as a private in Captain Stoane's Company of the 1st Georgia Militia, during the Creek and Indian War, and was living in Newton County on March 28, 1855.
