Facts and Events
Nathaniel Dugger was born ca 1802/1803 per his age (47) on the 1850 census. He was born somewhere in North Carolina. If he is part of the John Dugger (c1741) family, which seems likely, then he was probably born in Brunswick (now Columbus) Co., NC.
Nathaniel's parents are unknown, but he is probably a grandson (or great grandson) of John Dugger (c1741). It seems almost certain that Nathaniel is a brother to Harvey Dugger (c1811) for Nathaniel's children were living with Harvey in 1860 and his widow was next door to Harvey on that census.
Nathaniel married someone prior to 1830, probably in Effingham Co., GA, though no record was found. (His wife per the 1850 census was named Mary, but she is too young to be the same wife listed on the 1830 census.)
Nathaniel was listed on the 1830 census in Effingham Co., GA.
During the 1830's the family moved south to Lowndes Co., GA. They were listed there on the 1840 census, the only Duggers there at the time.
They were still in Lowndes for the 1850 census.
Nathaniel Dugger died in the 1850's in Lowndes, or in Brooks (formed from Lowndes in 1858).
