I saw the reference to Anna Lee Scruggs in the 1880 census, and presumed it was Annie Laurie, so I didn't look into it further. I see now from your family tree that Annie Laurie was born in 1870, so something doesn't make sense.
Anna Lee shows up in the 1880 census as 15 years old. That census was taken 11 Jun 1880. She also shows up in the 1870 census as 6 years old; it was taken 20 Aug 1870. That makes her date of birth somewhere between 11 Jun and 20 Aug 1864, and makes her about five-and-a-half years older than Annie Laurie.
The question that pops out to me is: where is Annie Laurie in these censuses? Her January, 1870 birthday would mean she would have been included in both as a baby (1870) and as a 10-year-old (1880).
Here's something interesting: I found an Annie Scruggs, single, born Jan 1863 (per the census) living with the Lee family in Greenwood, SC in 1900. Her occupation is listed as a school teacher.
I -- and my mother -- would love to see the Scruggs tree you have. She and her father grew up knowing so little about their family, and we are pretty isolated from them. It's turning out that all the branches of her family have been in the "new world" a long time. If you can send the tree to firstname.lastname@example.org
, I'd really appreciate it.
I'll let you know if I turn anything else up.
