CHURCH OF GOD (Seventh Day)

Graves of the Pioneers and Wives

*John Lemley commented: >This is the grave of Lois' great-grandfather, Andrew Ferguson Dugger. I've never heard of Gordie M. Dugger. I've heard that the retarded daughter who died was named Prudy and she lived to her teens. This Gordie died at the age of ten - almost her teens. Susan's middle name started with the letter "G." So, it may be the right person. Prudy might have been a nickname. Lois' grandfather, Andrew Nugent Dugger, and his sister, Ora Frances, are not in the list of children.<

* John Lemley wrote 27 Oct 2011:

 

"Your visit to our home was certainly lots of fun for us. We look forward to the next one whether at your home or ours.

Lois' grandparents were Andrew Nugent and Effie Carpenter Dugger. They had four children. Andrew, Orabelle, Naomi and Mary. You took a picture of it. The original was taken in 1947. There is also a picture of Effie playing the violin. And another picture of young Andrew with his brother Alex and a dog. You have picture of Andrew and Effie in the history document you gave me.

 

Andrew's parents were Andrew Ferguson and Virginia Belle Miller Dugger. There are separate pictures of them. Virginia's parents were Nathan and Sarah Miller.

 

Andrew F. Dugger parents were James and Mary Margaret Schaeffer Dugger. They are in separate pictures. James is young and Mary looks very old.

 

If you took copies of Effie's side of the family, there is a picture of the Carpenter family. And of her mother's Grimm family.

 

If there are more pictures that you need help identifying please let me know.

 

The chair was made by Andrew N. Dugger's father - Andrew F. Dugger. He made it for his retarded daughter who died in her teens.
