Hello! I am looking for any information on a Lucretia Brigman who appealed for a
divorce at the NC Supreme Court Level in late 1832. Her divorce was denied. Her
married name was Scroggins (possibly Scoggins).... Does anyone have information
on her or her family? If so, please email me at: e-mail address.

March 21, 2002 I am a student researching litigants involved in 2 1832 North Carolina Supreme Court divorce cases. The first couple is Lucretia SCROGGINS (BRIGMAN was her maiden name) and Marville SCROGGINS (which could have also been SCOGGINS). The last record we have of them is in Buncombe County, but Marville may not have been from there. Lucretia had a child that she sent to Tennessee, but we have no idea what happened to that child. The second couple is Ann BARDEN (BRADBURY was her maiden name) and Jesse BARDEN. The last record we have of them is from Wayne County. If anyone has any information about these people, please contact me!!!
Thank you! Jessica Bogo mailto:e-mail address.
- [S50] Law and Politics Book ReviewLAW AND SOCIETY IN THE SOUTH: A HISTORY OF NORTH CAROLINA COURT CASES. . . The book opens with three chapters exploring various domestic issues. The BARDEN (1832) and SCROGGINS (1832) cases provide conflicting rulings on grounds for divorce in North Carolina during the nineteenth century. Both Jesse Barden and Marville Scroggins brought divorce petitions alleging that their wives gave birth to “mulatto” babies. Interestingly, Barden won and Scroggins lost, although the Barden birth took place before the marriage, and the Scroggins birth after the marriage. . . .
