Hi Catherine,
I just came across your entry for Red Cloud Scruggs. It is very useful to me because his wife, Cora Stinger, is my wife's great-grand aunt. I was in Edna, Kansas, recently and saw the gravestone of Cora's mother, Louisa Stinger.

Thank you very much on the gravesite of Louisa Stinger. Do you by chance have her maiden name? I list her as Louisa Unknown at this time. Along way from NY to Edna Kansas! What cemetery would that have been? I live in Kansas myself and have yet to venture that direction. If you need any of the Scruggs line, just let me know. Thanks, cat

Hi Cat, Louisa's maiden name was Louisa Morris and she descends from a Cherokee chief known as Pathkiller. She was married twice, first to a man of Oneida descent named Lewis Denny and then later to David Stinger. She is buried in Elm Grove Cemetary in Edna, KS, (population about 400) along with one of her daughters, Elanor Lena Hawkins and a grandson, Ralph Hawkins. I have photos of the gravesites if you are interested. I have been researching my wife's ancestry for several months and took a drive to NE Oklahoma to look at the area I had been researching for such a long time, visited places like Vinita and Tahlequah, OK.
I would be very much interested in any Scruggs line info you have and, of course, if you would like anything more from me, please feel free to ask. Thanks, Brian

I am decended from Henry J. Scruggs, father of Sam Scruggs, who is the father of Red Cloud and Nathaniel Pendegrass (N.P.)Scruggs. N.P. and Belvadora Box were my great grandparents. Their daughter Bessie Lee Scruggs married to James Alfred Blue were my grandparents. Do you have any information about Henry and his ancestors? I only have the information that N.P. gave to the court of claims on his application. Any info would be greatly appreciated. If you would like any info on this line I will be glad to share. Thanks!!
