Facts and Events
Court records indicate that Lydia Dugger was charged with Bastardy three times. This indicates that she had three children. Unfortunately, the court records do not give the name or sex of the child born, nor do they name the father(s) of the children. However, one of these children is proven by another source, the 1762 Will of Marmaduke Cheatham that names Lydia's son "John Dugger". Other records prove that John was born in 1749, so that probably makes him the middle of the three children.
DNA Testing shows that Alexander and John probably have the same father or at least that their father's were of the same surname and probably closely related.
On 30 Apr 1762 Marmaduke Cheatham made his Will in Surry Co., VA naming his heirs. It was proven 17 Jun 1766.
