William Dugger was born ca 1760/1770 per his age (60-69) on the 1830 census and on the 1840 census (70-79). He was probably born in North Carolina, or perhaps in Virginia instead. If he is a son of John Dugger as believed, then he was probably born in Granville Co., NC.

He is probably a son of John Dugger, but no direct proof of that has been seen. They were associated and lived in the same place at the same time, so certainly closely related.

In Apr 1795 Brunswick Co., NC court, William Duggar and John Duggar were named as jurors for the next court.

In Jul 1795 Brunswick Co., NC court, William Duggar and John Duggar were listed as jurors.

On 11 Apr 1797 John Goodman made a land entry (# 803) for 100 acres on the north side of Gum Swamp in Brunswick Co., NC. The description of the land said it included William Dugger's improvements.

William Dugger seemed to have land in Brunswick Co., NC (later Columbus Co., NC) but I haven't yet found where he obtained it, nor how he disposed of it.

William was not listed on the 1800 census as far as could be found. His probable father John Dugger was listed in Brunswick Co., NC that year, but William didn't seem to be living with him. He may have already moved to Georgia by then, in fact that seems likely. The 1800 census is lost for Georgia.

Columbus County was formed in 1808 from part of Brunswick County. This included the section where the Duggers had lived.

On 16 Feb 1809 Joshua Stevens sold 400 acres to Bryant Rogers. The land was on Cypress Branch adjoining William Dugger and David Canada. (Columbus Co., NC Deed Book A page 448).

William Dugger wasn't found on the 1810 census. He was probably somewhere in Georgia then, and that census is lost.

On 1 Feb 1814 William Gore of Horry Dist., SC sold land to his son William Gore Jr of Columbus CO., NC. The land was on the north side of Seven Creeks adjoining William Dugger's land. (Columbus Co., NC Deed Book B page 99).

William Dugger is listed on the 1820 census in Bulloch Co., GA. Chesley Dugger, who might be his brother, was also listed there, but not nearby.
