Hello,

Rugg's Bluff is a small community found south/southwest of Ruston, LA, where the present college is Louisiana Polytechnic University or commonly as Louisiana Tech is located.
I was contacted about 4 years ago by a Rugg from there to follow up by tracing their ancestors. This Union Parish Rugg family migrated from Solomon Rugg in Lancaster, MA to Southington, Connecticut to South Carolina to Alabama crossing Mississippi and finally stopping in Union Parish. If I remember correctly, Solomon Rugg Sr is a great grandson or great great grandson of John Rugg Junior, son of John Rugge who owned tracts of land(s) in Barbadoes before leaving Barbadoes for Massachusetts to live and marry his first wife Martha Prescott. Her Father founded the town of Lancaster, MA.
