Scruggs-566; William.

The names of the daughters are not known. John is a son. I suppose that one could assert Edward is a son. Which I think would be wrong.

There is no evidence that the Elizabeth Ferguson who married Lipford was a Scruggs.

I misread the evidence; the error has been corrected.

Karen, Although there are several differences and omissions. I do believe these are the same person. I agreed to the merger of Robetson-12275 into Robertson-5946. Thanks. Sam

Karen, thanks for the notice about the problem with the profiles of John Robinson/Robertson. I remember accepting the suggested choice for John or Tabitha, I accepted the choice. I then proceeded to fill in the holes I found in the profile data. If the profile was program protected, why did it let me make those changes? No other protected profile ever has allowed that. I am sorry I messed up your profile and would never do so intentionally but you also erased my input when you reversed them. Is there anything that I need to do to help you get back to where you were?

Karen, it is my understanding that WikiTree normally does not use Jr and Sr and such with names. I agree with this since in our Duckett and a number of my other lines have so many Sr and Jrs in them over the generations that it causes great confusion. I named my son II on his birth certificate because I did not want him called Junior, Jr.

I know right? When I first learned of it, I thought, yeah right he is named after a can of snuff. Saving grace is that he predated that brand of snuff, I think.
