    James and Nancy Scroggins were buried in what was called the "Scroggins Family Cemetery" located in a field on the family farm. First surveyed 1931 by Mr. Franklin Garrett of Cobb County. He gives the following: "The cemetery was originally located in District 18, land lot 781. the graves of James F. and his wife Nancy were moved to the Scroggins Kendley plot in the Davis Cemetery on Bankhead Highway. New markers were erected and the old inscription part were buried with the remains"

    A few more odds'n'ends.

    These are from

    "Oglethorpe County, Georgia, Deed Books A-E 1791-1809," abstracted by Michal Martin Farmer, 1999. FHL call number 975.8175 R2f. (Too recent to be in current online or CD versions of the FHL catalog).

    "p. 224 31 July 1802, George Scroggins of Jackson Co., Ga., to Abel Pennington og afsd. co., for $200, 115 acres in Oglethorpe Co. on South Fork of Clouds Creek, granted to George Scroggins, 26 Nov 1800, beg. white oak cor., S40E 56 ch. to pine cor., E 32 ch. to black oak cor., N35W 57 ch. to chestnut cor., S4W 4 ch. to hickory cor., S45W 24 ch. to chestnut cor., N45E 24 ch. to beg., adj. Wilson on W., Benjamin Knox on N., George McFalls on E., Joseph Knox on S. (signed) George Scroggins. Wit: Thos. Johnson, Thos. Stocks, John Pennington. Proved 23 Mar. 1803 by John Pennington before Jas. Luckie, J.P."

    Notes: Abel Pennington rings a bell, but I can't say why (guess I'm slipping). I'd guess that "Thos. Johnson" is the father-in-law of Chatten D. Scroggins (D25).

    "p. 413 16 Nov. 1802 Spencer Reynolds (Runnels) of Clark Co., Ga., to Isham Smith of Oglethorpe Co., Ga., for $900, in Oglethorpe Co. on Long Creek waters, 322 acres, beg. pine cor., S55W 50 ch. to red oak cor., S35E 80 ch. to white oak cor., on branch, down branch to mouth, down Main Long Creek to where Thomas Scoggins' line crosses Long Creek to beg. (signed) Spencer Reynolds. Test: Richd. Bailey, Wm. Bledsoe, Pechy Bledsoe, J.P.

    Notes: "Thomas Scoggins" is almost certainly (D21); his son, Thomas E. (E54) was too young to own land. Spencer Reynolds, who was from Henry County, Virginia, is very likely:

    the father of Nancy Ann Reynolds (who married John P. Kennerly), and
    the maternal grandfather of Gainum Scroggins of Franklin County, Tennessee

    Reynolds' will is online in one of the Gedcom files at Rootsweb WorldConnect.

    [p. 261]
    "p. 414 Oglethorpe Co., Ga.: By the last will & Testament of Thomas Johnson, late of said co. decd.
    dated 5 Sept 1803, in a clause in the will there is a negro man named York given to my wife, Nancy Muckle. Billey Muckle, lawful husband of Nancy, sells to James Johnson, the negro man named York, 21 Jan. 1805. . . ."

    "p. 416 Thomas Johnson of Oglethorpe Co., for love, goodwill & affection, to my two beloved grandchildren, Sanders Johnson Scoggan & Jane (Jeny) Scoggin of Clark Co., Ga., give a negro boy named Ned, 1 feather bed & furniture, without any manner of consideration, 30 July 1803. (signed) Thomas Johnson. Wit. Billey Muckleroy, Nancy Muckleroy. Oglethorpe Co.: deed of gift proved by Billey Muckleroy, 21. Jan 1805. (signed) Billey Muckleroy. Wit. Jno. Lumpkin, J.I.C."

    Notes: From these two entries and other information previously known about Chatten's (D25) wife and father-in-law, I would draw the following conclusions:

    Thomas Johnson was the father-in-law of Chatten (D25). He was probably in ill health in the summer of 1803 and died sometime after 5 Sep 1803, but before 21 Jan 1805.

    Nancy Muckle or Muckleroy was most likely a daughter of Thomas.

    Sanders John Scoggan and Jane (Jeny) Scoggin were children, and probably the only children at the time, of Chatten (D25) and his wife Disey Johnson.

    Sanders is probably the first male child (A) referred to on p. 16 of Shirley Ross' book.

    If Jane is the Jane (C) on p. 16 of Ross, who married William Low, the sort of commonly accepted bith date of 1806 is too late; she would have to have been born some reasonable amount of time before 30 Jul 1803 in order for her grandfather inanother county to make a gift to her.

    I now wish I had looked for the full text of Thomas Johnson's will, but maybe next time, if there is a next time.
