Sarah Wright

  • Birth: 7 Feb 1819, Georgia (Probably Bulloch Co - birth county not proved by document)
  • Marriage: 21 Nov 1839 - Chatham Co, Georgia
  • Death: 20 Sept 1898 - (Probably Bryan Co, Georgia - not proved by document)
  • Burial: Lower Black Creek Cemetery, Ellabell, Bryan County, Georgia
  • The 11 known children of Nathaniel Duggar and Sarah Wright:
Joseph "Jasper" J. Duggar 1840-1922 [see NOTE1]
William Wesley Duggar 1842-1862
Clarissa Anne Duggar 1844-1852
Robert Eli Duggar 1845-1872
Martha Elizabeth "Mattie" Duggar 1847-1897
James Newton Duggar 1850-1920
John M. Duggar 1853-1860
Charles M. Duggar 1854-1923
Daniel (or David) Harmon Duggar 1857-1885 [See NOTE2]
Sarah Frances Duggar 1859-1931
Herschel Winfield Duggar 1861-1887.

The 5 surviving children in 1888 are named in Nathaniel's WFT.

  • NOTE1: The 1850 census names this son Joseph. All later listings for him use Jasper. Jasper is typically a nickname and not usually a Christian name. I believe Joseph is his baptismal name and Jasper a nickname he freely used all his adult life.
  • NOTE2: Daniel's name has been read many times as both David and Daniel. The 1870 census is the only document with his name written out. (Visit the census page yourself) During his lifetime he was called "Harmon" or used his initials. Both his headstone and his WFT only say "D. H. Duggar." A 2nd document needs to be found with his name spelled out in full to compare to the 1870 census.


Lower Black Creek Cemetery

  • Birth and death dates: Headstone
  • From a personal cemetery visitation 1981: Headstone is cracked in half and has been reset horizontally as a flatstone to stabilize it. Enlargement of the crack running through the birthdate has made the date now barely legible. (In 1981 it was a bit clearer than on a visit in June 2018)
