EDWIN S. DIUGUID, Murray, was born in Calloway County, August 13, 1854. His father, William H. Diuguid, is a native of Virginia, and came to Calloway County with his parents in 1835; he is a cabinet-maker by trade and carried on business a number of years in Murray, but has given his attention more of late years to agricultural pursuits. His wife, Catherine Churchill, is a native of this State. Their union has been blessed with nine children, of whom our subject is the fifth. The latter was reared on a farm, principally, and attended the district schools of the neighborhood, and after a year’s course at the Murray Institute, taught school for a term of five months; for four years following he was employed as salesman by J. D. A. Hale, of Murray, two years. With the money thus earned, he was enabled to enter a business partnership with W. P. Gatlin. The firm continued four years up to 1884, since which date Mr. Diuguid has been alone. He carries a large line of groceries, hardware and general merchandise, and enjoys a flourishing trade. Mr. Diuguid is a deacon in the Christian Church, and is one of the trustees of this town. He married, December 9, 1879, Miss Lottie C. Scott, a native of Mississippi. They have two children: Robert S. and Mary E.
