Benjamin Pugh, Greene Warren Cos. OH
I am researching the family of Benjamin Pugh, father of Rhoda, Sarah, and Patience Pugh. I have some information on his ancestry and would like to make contact with some of his descendants. Benjamin's will was probated 6 Dec 1833 in Dayton, Ohio. HIs daughter, Rhoda, married Reece Coulter in Warren Co., OH 25 Aug 1838. His daughter Sarah married Reece's brother, William in 1829. The family lived in Berkeley Co. WVA before moving to OH.
I have a little information about Benjamin. LMK what it is you are looking for and I will try to help you. Thanks. Colleen
Colleen,I have some limited information about Benjamin as well. I would like to fill in the blanks as much as possible. I have a few Quaker records until he was disowned in 1795 for being married by a Baptist teacher. I know he married Margaret Garard/Gerrard, daughter of David Garard of Berkeley Co., WVA. I found his will in Warren Co. OH. I know about his children Rhoda, Sarah, and Patience. I would like to know what happened to Abner,Hiram, Joseph, Margaret, William, Benjamin (jr), John, David and Evan. I'll be glad to share what I have. You may contact me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you wish.
I have a Great grandfather by the name of Benjamin Pugh who I have been trying to locate information on. He was married to a Emma Wilson and they had a daughter named Maude Adele Pugh born April 12, 1891. Maude married Enoch Pleasant Spears in 1910. I believe she was born in Earle, Arkansas then Maude and Enoch moved to Fairdealing, Missouri. I show that Benjamin, could be your Benjamin, Jr., he was born about 1867 in Earle Arkansas, Emma was born about 1869 also in Earle,Arkansas....I show children of Benjamin and Emma (Beulah, Maude, Essie, and Ivy Laura Bell)...does this match any information that you may have,,,
Brenda, the Benjamin Pugh, Jr. that I show as the son of Benjamin Pugh (b 1772 d 1833 m Margaret Garard)would have been born before 1833. These are the dates I have on the other of elder Benjamin's children: Rhoda b 26 July 1803 in VA; Hiram b June 1809; Sarah b 1801 in VA; Patience b 06 Nov 1799 in VA and David b 27 Jan 1798 in VA. There is a possibility that the Benjamin Jr. you show as being born about 1867 could still be a descendant of my Benjamin, Jr., but a genearation later. I have not run into any of the names you mentioned and I don't know that any of the family moved into Arkansas. But the descendants of William W. Coulter and Sarah Pugh did moved to Arkansas eventually. After the family left Warren Co., Ohio, Sarah Pugh Coulter's family moved to Huntington Co., IN and Rhoda Pugh Coulter's family moved to Randolph Co., IN. Patience Pugh Thompson Holmes lived in Hartford City, Blackford Co., IN when she died in 1892. I believe it was William A. Coulter, Sarah and William W.'s grandson that migrated to Mabelvale, Arkansas, but I don't know what year. There is a possibility that some of Sarah's relatives moved about the same time.

I noticed your PUGH query. I have some additional information for you.
According to the 1900 Rhea county TN. census.Barry Benjamin PUGH,
Known as B. B. PUGH, was born July 1848 in Georgia.
His wife, Emma J WILSON was born July 1875 in South Carolina.
She died of influenza in 1907.
Their Children are as follows:
Beulah; born Dec 1892 in Georgia.
Nettie M (Granny); born Apr 1894 in Georgia.
Ruskin V.; born Aug 1897 in Georgia.
The following three children were born after 1900:
Ivy Laura Belle
I hope this helps,
Thank you so much....I had the names Beula, Essie, Ivy and of course granny Maude...did not have Ruskin or Martin...I also had them all from Earle, Ark., is that incorrect??/you show Georgia, do you happen to know where in Georgia???
In 1900 they were residing in Rhea county GA.
However, they were not all born in GA.
The 1910 Federal census lists their places of
birth as follows:
Benjamin (Benjayoff)??; Georgia
Emma J.; South Carolina
Nettie M (Granny); South Carolina
Ruskin V; South Carolina
Martin, and Essie were born after 1900.
Ruskin, and Martin died in 1903.
I believe the daughter of Benjamin named Margaret is my GG Grandmother. Do you know Margaret's birth year? My Margaret married Jacob Croy 5 Apr 1830 in Stark Co, Ohio. She was born 13 Feb 1813. I have being born in Carrollton, Carroll Co, Ohio (I have not searched this, and do not know that to be a fact) She died 2 Jun 1884 in Washington Co Ohio. She and Jacob had 11 children. 7 boys and 4 girls. The seven boys all served in the union army.
If this sounds like it may be what we are both looking for, please email me. Thanks
