Meredith Arnold Dugger also known as Meredith Dugger Arnold was born ca 1807/08, presumably in Carter Co, TN.

His parentage is unproven, but the Arnold and Dugger connections make it seem likely he was a son of Julius Arnold Dugger, but that is far from proven.

He married Hannah Eaton on or about 23 Apr 1829 in Carter Co, TN. His marriage bond showed him as “Marridy D. Arnold.”

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

  • Carter Co., TN page 27 Medidy Dugger 1000100000000-0001000000000
  • 1 male 20-29 (1800/1810)=Meredith Dugger Arnold (c1808)

  • 1 female 15-19 (1810/1815)=Hannah Heaton Arnold (c1817) wife

He began using “Arnold” as his surname after this, perhaps, since that was his legal surname. This is all speculative of course.
