|This page and
others on this site are dedicated to the memories,
caring, and sharing of JOE Baggett. Joe was
wonderful at helping all of us that were new to
genealogy, and to those that were not.
In his memory, please send any items that Joe helped you with so that we may place them here.
Items Joe was researching:
As we've seen in earlier newsletters, Susan Baggett, 12, is shown on the 1850
census of Chambers County, Ala., as the daughter of Andrew B. and Rebecca
(Osborne) Baggett of Jackson Co. and Henry Co., Ga. The "R.P.? Baggett, 58?/68?
SC" that you found in Lee Co., Ala., in 1870 is the same Rebecca Osborne
J.F. Baggett shown on the 1870 census is Andrew & Rebecca's son John F. Baggett, who organized and became captain of Company F, 46th Georgia Infantry, CSA, in May 1862 at Loachapoka, Lee County. The family you found in 1870 is shown on the 1860 census of Macon County, p. 845, Ancestry image 149: John F. Baggett 32 born Ga. farmer, wife Sarah T. 21 born Virginia, Rebecca P. 58 SC, Elizabeth 17 Ala., Obuna? (female) 15 Ala., Elizabeth F. (sic) 13 Ala., M.T. Preston 12 (male) Virginia; living adjacent F.M. Osborne 21 Ga. overseer, etc. Living very closeby at Ancestry image 150 were your James Nunnelee 24, Susan V. 5, ELiza L. 3, Cornelia J. 1.
From how I read the 1870 Lee County census, we have J(ohn) F. Baggett 42 Ga., S(arah) T. 31 Va., daughter H.?L. 3, mother R(ebecca) P. 68 SC, (John F.'s brother) William S. 36 Ga., S.V. (Susan V.?) Nunnelee 14.
Descendant Samuel Graves Baggett had said Rebecca's husband Andrew B. Baggett had died "about 1871," but he was obviously in error. I'll have more details in the next "Baggett Family Newsletter."
