Subject: Duggans online...
My name is Tom Duggan. I live in Holden, Massachusetts.
don't remember, but about four years ago, my wife Jen and I chatted a
little bit with you on AOL. I think at that time you were living in
Canada (not sure, I could be making that up...) Anyway, the other day I
did a search for "Duggan" on the internet, and eventually stumbled across
your page. I think it's a great thing you're doing, putting together all
of the family information, available online.
I had two questions. First, do you mail out your newsletter, or
publish it online for people to view? If you do mail it out, would you
include us in your mailing list? I think it would be interesting to read
now and then. I am becoming very interested in my own family history,
too. A second question. I enjoyed looking through all of the Duggan
links you have compiled. Would you add my link to your list? My homepage
can be found at: http://www.gis.net/~tpduggan/index.html Also, I don't
know how often you update the list, but I noticed that there were several
pages that were "no longer found".
Just wanted to drop a line...

I am doing research on my Dugan ancestry and was thrilled to find your
website. I looked through the past newsletters on your site, but
unfortunately could not find anything on our family's Dugan line. I was
wondering if you might know of anyone with any information.
My great-great grandfather was Patrick Duggan (listed in the 1880
census as Duggan, then changed to Dugan by the 1900 census; we're not
sure whether the first spelling might have been an accident by the
person taking the census). He was born in 1851 in Ireland (we don't
know where), immigrated to the U.S. in 1868 and settled in western
Pennsylvania. The family says that the Dugans settled in the Cresson,
PA (Cambria County) area, but apparently he and his wife have 2 children
buried in Latrobe, PA (Westmoreland Co.).
Patrick married Mary Brady around the year 1870, and by 1880 they
living in Houtzdale, PA, where they settled (Patrick worked as a coal
miner). They had 11 children: Mary (b.1874), Catherine (b.1878), John
(b.1880), Patrick (my great-grandfather, b.1882), Anna Satatia (b.1884),
Edward (b.1886), Bertha (b.1888), Joseph (b.1892), William (b. 1895),
Relia (b.1896), and Gerald (b. 1898).
My great-grandfather, Patrick Dugan (jr.), then married Mary Haney,
they had 15 children: Kathryn (b.1903), Patrick (b.1904), Sophia
(b.1906), Mary (my grandmother, b. 1907), Juliatte (b.1910), John
(b.1911), Jerome 9b.1913), William (b.1914), Rose (b.1916), Ruth
(b.1917), Allice (b. 1918), Peter Haney (b. 1919), Rita, Margaret, and
Helen (all born after 1920).
If you know of anyone who knows anything about this Dugan line
be thrilled. In the meantime, I'm continuing my research and will
update you as I find more information.

I'm trying to find more on the Dogan/Doogan family that was in Wilkes
NC (Surry and Rowan before that) in the 1760-1790 time frame. My ancestor
John Robins Sr. had a wife, Elizabeth in Wilkes Co. She is said by others
to have been Elizabeth DOGAN, and I'm trying to confirm that. This couple
moved with their adult children first to Franklin Co., GA in the 1790's,
and later to Franklin Co. TN (not adjacent to FCGA), where they both died
in their later years. Can you direct me to information on this clan?
Thanks, Reiley Kidd

Donaldson.There is an old cemetary down there with the Dugan's and

researching my maternal grandfather, Michael Duggan/Dugan. I don't
know what county he came from, but I had seen his citizenship papers
and the spelling was with 2 g's. However, the story is that he

Michael married Bridget O'Donnell and they lived in the Bronx, NY,
had 6 children:
Edward, Joseph, John, Mary, Ellen and Anne (my mother). I don't know

Hello again Lyman,
I'm sending an abbreviated, e mail version of my Dugan lineage chart.
great deal of the information included here was compiled by my great aunt,
Bertha Pearl (Dugan) Hofman. It begins with my ggggrandfather, Sutton
Fowler Dugan, and his siblings. I and several other Dugan "cousins"
believe that Sutton Fowler's parents were probably James Dugan and Hannah
Fowler, who were married May 5, 1808, in Campbell Co, KY. All of Sutton
Fowler Dugan's siblings (Isaac Franklin, James, Sarah, Anna, and Altha or
Althea) were born at least 10 years after Sutton Fowler, and may have been
from a second wife of James Dugan. I'm also investigating the possibility
that James Dugan who married Hannah Fowler, may be the same man as James
Duggan (with 2 g's), born in Tyrell Co, NC in 1790.

I'm currently in contact with four other descendants of Sutton Fowler
Dugan, and one descendant of Sutton Fowler's brother, Isaac Franklin
Dugan. All these families were around May Day, Riley Co, KS by the
1860's. Although the town of May Day, KS, no longer exists, the cemetery
is still there, and is the final resting place of many Dugans. About 1/2
mile to the west of the cemetery is a ridge line which is still known as
the "Dugan Hills." I'll be recording information from the cemetery for
inclusion in the USGenWeb Tombstone Transcription Project, sometime this
summer. It's located at http://www.rootsweb.com/~cemetery/index.html .
Well, let me know if you can use this information as is, Lyman.
Thanks a lot, Sue :)

I have a list of Dugans also. Let me know if their names can help.I
trying to find the ancestors of Dennis Dugan, my ggrandfather. He arrived
from Ireland (probably Kerry because he stayed with a Kerry group and
married a girl whose father was from Kenmare, Kerry) about 1860. There
are a lot of us in Wisconsin. He lived in Columbia co., WI. His son was
Johnny, my grandfather.
I'm not sure why, maybe
you just want to check out all of the
different versions of the same song, and if there are enough, WHO KNOWS, &
I don't mean to be sarcastic in any way, whatsoever, maybe you COULD make
a songbook with different tunes in it. I'm not sure.
And about THE
WILD COLONIAL BOY, The Ballad of
there's only 1 version (at least that I know of). It goes something like
a Wild Colonial Boy Jack DUGGAN was his name.
He was born & raised in Ireland in a place called Castlemaine. He was his
father's only SON, His mother's PRIDE AND JOY, And dearly did his parents
love The Wild Colonial Boy. At the early age of 16 years He left his
Native Home. And to Australia's sunny shores He was inclined to roam, He
robbed the rich to help the poor, He stabbed James McEvoy, A terror to
Australia was, The Wild Colonial Boy.
One day out on the prairie,
As Jack he rode along,
Listening to the mockingbird,
singing a cheerful song,
Out jumped 3 troopers Brave and Grim,
Kelly, Davis, & Fitzroy,
They thought that they would capture him,
the wild colonial boy
"Surrender now, Jack Duggan,
you see there's 3 to one,
Surrender in the Queen's name,
you are a plundering son!"
Jack drew 2 pistols from his belt
& spun around like a toy,
"I'll fight but not surrender" cried
the wild colonial boy.
He fired a shot at Kelly which brought him to the ground,
point blank at Davis too who fell dead at the sound. But a bullet pierced
his proud young heart, from the pistol of Fitzroy, And that was how they
captured him, the wild colonial boy.
Well, that's the version that I KNOW.

Sir, I found your site today and, given that my maternal grandmother'smaiden name was Duggan, I thought I'd have a look. It may interest you to know that my Great-Grandfather, one John Duggan, of Carrick-on-Suir, near Clonmel, Co. Tipperary, Ireland, has a chapter devoted to him in the 1901 Methuen book "The Green Sphinx", an Irish travel book by one Bart Kennedy. I don't know if this might help anyone but I offer it just in case!
Best wishes, Paul Bines
Further to my previous message; it occurs to me that I have been somewhat
vague about my family! a brief explanation; unfortunately my grandmother,
Bella Johnson nee Duggan, died a few years ago, before I could get the
family history from her. She was the eldest of, I think, five children,
the others being John, William, Margaret and Sarah. Her father was John
(I don't have to hand the name of my Great Grandmother), and they lived,
if memory serves correctly in Carrick. When John and his wife died,
Bella took care of the family; upon marriage she moved to Clonmel, where
she lived until she died. William lives in Dublin, where
one of his sons works for Aer Lingus in a senior capacity. John still lives in Clonmel. Margaret married and moved to London (my mother, Margaret's niece, married Margaret's husband's brother!) Sarah became a nun and is now based in Bendigo, Australia. Some distant cousins of the family own a jewellers shop in Clonmel, called "Duggan". I don't have dates, but my grandmother was born in the early part of this century (no later than about 1915) All I know of John, my great grandfather is that he was a waiter in a Carrick hotel, where he was interviewed by Bart Kennedy for the aforementioned book (It has been some time since I have seen a copy of this book, I don't currently own a copy, so some of the above details may be slightly inaccurate) I have not made a serious effort to follow the family history, hence the large gaps!
My apologies for the vagueness of this, but I hope it may be of some
Best Wishes, Paul Bines
