    Frances, I am marketing the Ivey Duggan house for the current home owner. Would love to have a copy of the letter to include in the history of the house.

    Ivy Duggan (my double great grandfather) was not the first to receive a teaching certificate in Georgia. This was verified by the Department of Education. However, Ivy proved to be a prominent and well-loved professor throughout his entire adult life.

    You may be interested in knowing as well, that the pictured home received many unwelcomed Union soldiers in it, in December 1864. I have Susan Reynolds (Ivy Duggan’s wife) letter that describes that visit to her home and to the town.

        Nice to meet you. I have heard of Sam Duggan, mostly from my sister (Peggy Jolley) who I believe knew Sam his son. Can’t recall.

        Anyway, I have to make this quick as I”m going somewhere right now but feel free to correspond further.
