Joel Dugger was born 11 May 1787 (what is source for this date?) presumably in Wilkes Co., NC.

On 13 Oct 1802 Thomas Foster, Joel Duggar and Mary Duggar witnessed a deed from Benjamin Dugger to Martin Hall for land on Elk Creek. (Wilkes Co., NC Deed Book C1 page 435).

Joel Dugger married Hester Ann Primmer on 2 Aug 1805 in neighboring Carter Co., TN.

On 23 Sep 1807 Joel Dugger entered 500 acres of land at Rusels Rock House on waters of Watauga River. (NC Land Entry # 1794).

Joel Dugger served in the War of 1812 from Ashe Co., NC. (Muster Rolls of the Soldiers of the War of 1812... p. 118)

From Gene Blair: "He is listed in the 1815 Ashe Co., NC tax lists as having 5 tracts of land totalling 280 acres valued at $175.00, two tracts joining David Dugger, and one tract (evidently his homesite) joining Abram Vanderpool."

I didn't find Joel on the 1820 census. He was probably in Carter Co., TN then. That census is lost.

Joel was listed on the 1830 census in Carter Co., TN:

  • Carter Co., TN page 19 Joel Dugger 1211101000000-1100001000000
  • Analysis:
  • 1 male 40-49 (1780/1790)=Joel Dugger (1787)
  • 1 male 20-29 (1800/1810)=Emanuel L. Dugger (c1810) son
  • 1 male 15-19 (1810/1815)=John Dugger (1813) OR James Dugger (c1814) sons
  • 1 male 10-14 (1815/1820)=Daniel D. Dugger (c1815) son
  • 2 males 5-9 (1820/1825)=1-Unknown; 2-William L. Dugger (c1824) son
  • 1 male 0-4 (1825/1830)=Benjamin F. Dugger (c1826) son
  • 1 female 40-49 (1780/1790)=Hester Primmer Dugger (c1787) wife
  • 1 female 5-9 (1820/1825)=Sarah Dugger (c1818) daughter
  • 1 female 0-4 (1825/1830)=Celia Dugger (c1825) daughter

They were listed on the 1840 census in Johnson Co., TN:

  • Johnson Co., TN page 279 Joel Dugger 0010000100000-0001000100000
  • Analysis:
  • 1 male 50-59 (1780/1790)=Joel Dugger (1787)
  • 1 male 10-14 (1825/1830)=Benjamin F. Dugger (c1826) son
  • 1 female 50-59 (1780/1790)=Hester Primmer Dugger (c1787) wife
  • 1 female 15-19 (1820/1825)=Celia Dugger (c1825) daughter

They were on the 1850 census in Watauga Co., NC though mistakenly listed as Dyers. It is clearly them though:

They were still in Watauga Co., NC in 1860.

Joel and wife seem to have died in the 1860's, probably in Watauga Co., NC.

From Gene Blair: Joel and Hester are buried in a plot in the middle of a farm on Phillips Branch Road (County Rd. 1209), off Hwy 321, near Willow Valley Baptist Church, about four miles West of Sugar Grove, Watauga Co., NC.
