m. 11 Sep 1833
Facts and Events
Elizabeth Dugger was born ca 1806/07 in Ashe Co, NC. She was named as a child of David in the 1915 article in "A History of Watauga County". I don't know if there is any additional proof available.
Elizabeth Dugger married Jehiel Smith on or after 11 Sep 1833 (date of marriage bond) in Ashe (now Watauga) Co, NC. He was apparently married before to someone else, as his oldest child (Ebenezer) was born in 1828. Either that, or they were having children together before being legally married.
Jehiel Smith was listed on the 1830 census in Ashe County, with a number of people residing with him. He was on the same page as Elizabeth's brother Henry Dugger.
Jehiel Smith was in Ashe County for the 1840 census. He was just a few houses from Elizabeth's father David Dugger.
Watauga County was formed in 1849 from the part of Ashe where the Smith family lived.
Jehiel and Elizabeth and family were listed on the 1850 census in Watauga County, NC.
I have birth dates for most members of this family, but I don't know where I got them from. They are all consistent with the census records, so they are probably accurate, but I'd like to know the source for them.
