Hi Betty. I know that my great-great-(great?) grandfather was CAPTAIN Abijah F. Boggess, Co. A, men from Meigs County, Tennessee ( http://www.tngennet.org/civilwar/csainf/csa26.html
) and that my grandfather, Lacy Boggess, and father, Lacy Boggess Jr. (as well as myself) are from Texas. My father was born in Fort Worth, but I'm not sure where my grandfather was born (I can find out). So, I'll pass your posting on to my father to see what he says. Incidentally, I also know that my grandfather, or great grandfather, was known as Irby Boggess.
