Connecting this Huggins branch is not an easy task. There are many questions yet to be answered. Bear in mind, this is a work in progress. I will
begin by giving you the reader, the earliest records that I have found so far, which at this point is where I am in my search. Then, I will bring you up to present day. I have not given any information upon assumption, other than the introductory paragragh. All other facts I have found through various sources and of course obtained copies where possible .One could assume many facts regarding this first portion of information, however, without finding some type of documention I will NOT record the info. to be fact!
Earliest records that I have found so far are 1820 land lottery with David, Green & John Huggins appearing in Hall/Cherokee Cty, Ga.
John Huggins 1830 Hall Cty, Ga. census
All three men are found on 1834 Forsyth Cty, Ga. census.
Later census records show that both David & Elizabeth Huggins were born in SC. Elizabeths age 75 and Davids age 70.(1850 Forsyth Cty. census)
Green married Letty Pugh born in NC. Their daughter Caroline married Isaac M. Brownlow at the age of 40 in Forsyth Cty, Ga. record E pg. 32 4/02/1877. The record states her father(Green) to be deceased. Letty is found as a widow on census by 1845.
*special Notes about David & Elizabeth
There was a marriage recorded in South Carolina of Elizabeth Isbel to David Huggins. I do not know the county, but Elizabeths mother died in Pendleton District, SC. I found the information on several different submitted pedigrees under the Isbell Surname. These records show Elizabeth Isbel born 2/07/1783. **Is this the David & Elizabeth shown above in Ga. in 1820-50? if I could find and prove a yes or no answer this would be progress and perhaps help make connections with the correct family.
Fact: Forsyth Cty, Ga. May 1, 1837 David Huggins and Cullen Davis are held & firmly bound, unto the inferrior court sitting for ordinace purposes, sum of $500 sealed and dated 5/1/1837. David Huggins is appointed legal guardian of Ruthy Isbel Stegal. Orphan daughter of Nancy Stegall.
Could this be an Isbell connection as mentioned above?
Note: Cullen Davis (male) neighbor on census. Leaving the reader with the above mentioned information, which I mentioned, is what I am now working on: ... I present the following:
Descendants of John Huggins
born about 1790-1800 Ga(?) married Matilda(maiden name unknown) born SC about 1800 (information taken from sons Bible, which now is in posession of Sandy Smith) Aurthors Note: I have not been able to locate any documentation of this marriage as of this time.
(There is record that John Huggins, William Huggins and James Maxwell are granted permission to pass through that part of the Cherokee Nation on
their way to Pendleyton County. State of Ga. Oct. 25, 1804 Source: Early settlers of Ga. by: Davis Robert Scott & records of the Cherokee Agency in Tenn. National Archives Micro Copy M-28, rolls 1-7,13.)

below information taken from 1845 Forsyth Cty, Ga census * Matilda Huggins shown as widow at this time Note: Have found no record of death or burial for John Huggins (could possibly be in a cemetery that was flooded during the construction of lake lanier.?)

I have two more generations documented. I will not share them at this time due to privacy protection. It is my hopes this will help make connections with other Huggins from this line and be helpful to other Huggins researchers. Thank you for taking the time to view my family pages. If you are connected to this family in any way, it would be a joy to hear from you.
May God Bless you.
